Bristol Palin On Dancing With The Stars, Of Course

Sometimes I feel like Charlie Brown when he runs to kick the football that Lucy is holding but right at the last second she pulls it away and he goes flying into the air. Except that instead of running I am just peacefully trying to live my life, and instead of trying to kick a football I’m just trying to approach the world around me with optimism and rationality, and instead of Lucy pulling the football away it is everything conspiring constantly to remind me that we live in a garbage society with an ever-approaching expiration date, and instead of flying into the air I’m just very, very tired and would like to lay down. But otherwise it’s basically the same. In both instances we’re talking about a surprisingly-depressing cartoon. (Via Dlisted.)
