‘Congratulations’ in quote marks to Jon and Levi, who joins his almost-Mother-in-Law Sarah Palin in the anals of disgrace, since Palin ‘won’ Disgraced Celebrity of the Summer, 2009.
“Congratulations’ also to worthy runner-up nominees (all still eligible for Disgraced Celebrity of the Year) David Letterman, Roman Polanski, Carrie Prejean, Glenn Beck and Balloon Boy’s Dad (what WAS his name? His 15 minutes are fast deflating…)
Act quickly, before our ADD-rattled minds forget the many notable disgraces this year has heaped upon us. We will be taking votes all through December for Disgraced Celebrity of 2009. Meanwhile, let’s savor the double ‘win’ of Levi and Jon, each an exemplar of the Balloon Boy Breed of Celebrity in Disgrace: those who concoct their fame/disgrace from thin air…And eventually vanish into it. Is it just me, or are we already at: ‘Jon who?’
