Thanks for Sarah Palin, John McCain

Seeing the once-obscure beauty queen-turned Alaska governor-turned GOP vice-presidential candidate, become the equivalent of an embarrassing relative that won't go away--we're starting to get a clue as to how mortified Jimmy Carter must've felt about brother Billy, as well as Bill Clinton regarding younger sibling Roger--we're reminded of the opening line of Stephen Thomas Erlewine's All Music Guide review of Kevin Federline's debut--and hopefully his last--album, Playing with Fire, which castigates K-Fed's then-wife Britney Spears and which we'd like to paraphrase here for you:

One day, either in this life or the next, John McCain will have to atone for unleashing Sarah Palin upon the world.

Word.

Happy Juneteenth!
