Where Have You Gone, Dan Quayle??

As if there weren't enough crazies celebrities running around having children, we can now add 16 year old Jamie Lynn Spears to the mix.

My personal favorite part of the press release is that she goes so far as to say that kids should not be having sex. WHA?!?! How about saying "I wish we had been [intelligent enough to be] using birth control"? No one should be getting pregnant who doesn't want to be pregnant. There are lots of options to prevent pregnancy.

And she is supposed to be a Nickelodeon ROLE MODEL??? And where are the Walt Disneys of the world, who convinced Annette Funicello preserve her Mouseketeer modesty by not wearing a bikini in movies, to save these young people from themselves? HELP!

Someone should be throwing condoms in with their paychecks.

(And in the meantime, my friends who are in a happy, stable relationship and cannot wait to become parents, which they will be AWESOME at, fight the fertility battle on a monthly basis. The world isn't fair.)

Personally, I can't believe some Republican candidate hasn't grabbed this issue of "family values" and made a run for the border with it. (This is so much better than "Murphy Brown".) (I would feel a lot better about this if her sister wasn't such a disaster in the parenting department. I understand that publication of Lynn Spears' parenting book has been postponed indefinitely. SHOCKER THAT!)

As Keanu Reeves' character says in Parenthood: "You know, Mrs. Buckman, you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car - hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they'll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father."


  1. Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Woo, woo, woo. What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson? Joltin' Joe has left and gone away? Hey, hey, hey...hey, hey, hey.

  2. I unjust.
    Thanks for the vote of confidence in our parenting abilities! (Maybe I am assuming too much by thinking that you were talking about us. ;))
