Oh my.

Police say an upstate New York tele­vi­sion exec­u­tive who sought to improve the image of Muslims in the media beheaded his wife after she filed for divorce.

Yes. Really. I do not believe this is going to do much to reform the image of Muslims.

Who knows, though? Maybe he anes­thetized her first or some­thing, rather than just hack­ing her head off like the Islamo-​​perverts do in Iraq.

And, on the heels of the tale of Alfie Patten, the 13-​​year-​​old Brit father of a baby girl, we have Bristol Palin bor­row­ing from Mommy’s lime­light to artic­u­late* on being an unwed teenage mother as well:

It’s just, like, I’m not liv­ing for myself any­more. It’s, like, for another per­son, so it’s dif­fer­ent,” Bristol Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “And just you’re up all night. And it’s not glam­orous at all,” she said. “Like, your whole pri­or­i­ties change after hav­ing a baby.”

Yes, the fore­go­ing rich broth of insight is an actual quote. The rest of her blather is every bit as tol­er­a­ble. I was all like, OMG, I’m like preg­nant? And like, Mom, she like, was all gaaah, and I was all like yeah I know, but like we decided to like, you know, go ahead with it.

The best option is absti­nence, the teen said, but added that she didn’t think that was “realistic.”

She’s right, of course. But then, it seems using con­tra­cep­tion is equally unre­al­is­tic to her. I have the sad, sink­ing feel­ing that Levi Johnston (the father) is actu­ally the bright­est con­trib­u­tor to that par­tic­u­lar genetic mashup.
