Mediaite covers the ongoing feud between Sarah Palin and Kathy Griffin, in which Sarah Palin responded in exactly the wrong way (but what else is new?) to Griffin’s taunts, calling her a “50-year-old adult bully” and demanding that she leave her family alone. This, of course, is great publicity for Griffin and is the kind of celebrity ire upon which she bases entire TV specials, so, you know, good work Team Palin! Get the full post here.

Uh oh: Gossip Cop reports that Charlie Sheen has been fired from “Two and a Half Men,” though CBS doesn’t seem ready to pull the plug on the show altogether. The star’s response: “This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.” Nailed it!

The Mary Sue brings us a very imaginative young girl’s hand-drawn videogame, which has up to 15 levels (15!) and features “portals, roses, [and] candles (or torches),” so it’s basically a videogame version of “The Bachelor.” To see the whole layout, click here.
