I don’t care. JUST READ IT.

You’ll thank me.

When we last checked in with Talibunny spawn Bristol Palin, she was busy filming her reality show and opining about the dangers of gay marriage.  Here’s a new clip released by the producers of her show where she and her sister Willow just laugh and laugh when her toddler son calls Aunt Willow “faggot.”  Pity the child’s future kindergarten teacher.

According to data released by the research and monitoring group Guide Star, the Candie’s Foundation has paid Bristol Palin™ $262,000 to be their “abstinence ambassador.” The nonprofit Foundation and the Palin family attorney had no comment to the Associated Press.

Our afterparty continues with a satellite remote from Florida:

Movies and TV shows with gay characters could be ineligible for a “family-friendly” tax credit in Florida under a little-noticed provision tucked into a $75 million incentive package that Republican House leaders hope will attract film and entertainment jobs to the state.

The bill would prohibit productions with “nontraditional family values” from receiving a so-called family-friendly tax credit. But it doesn’t define what “nontraditional family values” are, something the bill’s sponsor had a hard time doing, too.

“Think of it as like Mayberry,” state Rep. Stephen Precourt, R-Orlando, said, referring to The Andy Griffith Show. “That’s when I grew up — the ’60s. That’s what life was like. I want Florida to be known for making those kinds of movies: Disney movies for kids and all that stuff. Like it used to be, you know?”

Rep. Precourt, have you seen the Monkees movie?
