Your Newest Sign Of The Apocalypse

By Wyatt Earp | August 11, 2009

Apparently, Levi Johnston is a Q-List celebrity, now that he’s “dating” Kathy Griffin. The bad news is that the Q-List is a step down for him, but up for her. We. Are. Doomed.

Seriously, how are either of these two people famous, whilst I wallow in virtual obscurity?

Worth posting for two reasons. First, because it’s a stark commentary on fame in modern America — not only in terms of how low the bar is set to qualify but how small the rewards are. The kid’s gone from front row at the Republican convention to … the Teen Choice Awards … as Kathy Griffin’s date. What’s next, taking Pia Zadora to the Daytime Emmys?

Second, although most Palin fans can’t stand him, this is actually good news for the ‘Cuda, especially now that she’s engaging on serious policy matters. The more visible Johnston becomes as a celebrity parasite and gossip-page hanger-on, the less the public will associate him with her or Bristol. Eventually he’ll just be one of those “why is he famous again?” people, like Paris Hilton or Kevin Federline. Or, actually, Kathy Griffin. (H/THot Air)

Good Lord, if we could bottle up the talent on that screen and sell it to the public, we could make . . . about two bits.

    Wait… She is old enough to be his Grand-Mother.

    What is she doing at the ‘Teen Choice Awards’??!!!

    I’m just wondering why Todd Palin hasn’t already stuffed that little punk’s head into a toilet and given him a swirly.

    Or taken him out on the family fishing boat and used him for fishbait…

    Randal – I think that was before Levi transformed into Tim “The Tool” Taylor.

    Boson – Because the “Tween Awards” threw her out on her octogenarian ear.

    MeToo – Kathy Griffin isn’t funny, and worse, she isn’t hot.

    Wes S. – He could be used as bait during next season’s Deadliest Catch . . .
