I know, I know. Everyone is sick of hearing about Sarah Palin. Now that she isn’t running for President, I suppose she’s not as relevant as before. One could argue that Michele Bachmann is the new form the devil has taken. But, in one form or another, it seems Palin always turns up to capture our curiosity in one form or another.
I suppose we should be grateful to Sarah Palin on some level. Say what? Well, you can’t deny that she keeps us talking, whether it’s with a rifle in a bikini or publicly offending every demographic known to civilized man. She has had a reality show, a comic book, and I’m certain a bobble head, as most annoying public nuisances do. Another reason to be grateful to Palin is that her shenanigans led to hottie and baby daddy to Palin’s grand daughter, Levi Johnston, baring his cute, little butt for us in the pages of Playgirl. What, no full frontal? Big mistake. Huge! (But, then again, I guess we’ll never know. And then, of course, there was Tina Fey’s spot-on, endlessly entertaining portrayals of her.)
Last night, I had a dream that Jigsaw from the Saw movie franchise kidnapped me and tortured me by making me watch endless hours of footage of Palin talking. Really? You betcha! I think that we are safe for now, but every villain returns, and oh, yes! There will be blood!
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
