Confession – this bitch has not, does not now and most likely will never watch John and Kate Plus 8 (now Kate Plus 8 with the exception being when it’s John Plus 8 on the weekends).
So, the John and Kate Plus 8 saga has been impossible to avoid. It reminds this bitch of the American Idol frenzified coverage that has been so wall-to-wall that a bitch knows what’s what and my ass never even watched that show...not once.
Why bother, when television news is basically a reality television highlight reel?
Since the J&K+8 drama has been forced upon this bitch (summary – they have a reality television show that documents their lives with eight chil’ren, several of which were born at the same time. Their marriage is falling apart and now shit is getting ugly so the future show is up in the air but the train wreck is keeping the gossip watchers busier than hell)… I took a moment this morning to skim an article about some new development requiring John to give thousands of dollars back to Kate and blah, blah and more blah.
This bitch could give a shit 'bout that news…but I am quizzical over a certain something that has been missing from the over the top and freakishly dedicated coverage of J&K+8.
Where the fuck are the defenders of man-on-woman sanctified marriage?
***cue crickets with cicada singing backup***
Where’s “the church”…where's that asshole from Focus on the Family…the politicians…and why the fuck hasn’t Sarah Palin released a statement on the monumental threat to chil’ren, family and the nation posed by the implosion of one of the most popular multi-birth families on television?
My gods, a bitch can’t believe there hasn’t been a letter writing campaign…a march followed by sit-in at [insert television network covering the hell out of this story 'cause it's a ratings dream come true]. I can't believe there hasn't been a massive action to protest the HUGE threat to traditional blah blah that John and Kate divorcing could be!
For the love of all that would prevent the man-on-woman sanctified marriage movement from being completely full of shit, these people are making divorce must see tv. There should be Congressional hearings and a federal amendment banning man-on-woman celebrity divorce in cases where the marriage, though dysfunctional, is a ratings downpour.
And what about the chil’ren?
What about their right to be raised in a house torn apart by bitterness and lies by two people, one a man and that other a woman who were joined together in sanctified marriage by intelligent design to go forth and populate the land with photogenic wee ones that love the camera and already know that the camera loves them back...mmmhmm, to be raised by parents who can’t stand each other and have a tendency to give television interviews that are so chock full of TMI that a bitch has to change the channel?
***crickets and cicada begin to sing Whitney Houston’s "Didn’t We Almost Have it All"***
I just don’t get it!
...unless all that defense of marriage talk with campaigns and spokes-people and commercials and interviews and websites and organizations and federal dollars funding more campaigns and commercials and websites and counselors and so forth and so on…unless all of that was, is and will always be bullshit.
***logs off to enjoy the crickets/cicada show***
