Sarah Palin
, bless her ridiculous little heart, is still just so very upset that other people are upset that she allowed her son to stand on her dog. ... But you know what? Facebook just didn't give her a big enough platform to express her outrage that people care about animals. No, she had to go and issue an absurd statement to NBC as well.

A lot of her new statement is very similar to her old statement -- attacking PETA and President Obama, of course -- but she also has some new points:

The double standards applied by hypocrites at PETA make me and every other kid — and dog-lover — say "kiss my okole." They're not attacking me because I showed people a special needs child and his happy, healthy, beloved service dog; they're attacking me because, well, I'm me.

Guys, she loves that dog, and all dogs, unlike those dang liberals:

We adopted her for our youngest son from an amazing friend in Iowa who runs a foundation that raises and trains dogs for our wounded warriors. These dogs can change a disabled vet's life, and that's a beautiful thing! Certainly the Puppy Jake Foundation has changed our life for the better. I am in love with this four-legged family member! So is Trig, and it's so revealing that the Political Left knows no bounds as they attack him and now even good, selfless supporters and trainers at the Puppy Jake Foundation. I hope the foundation is overwhelmed with support from caring Americans now so that good comes from PETA’s bad acts in this. 

And you know, even if the dog had bitten her son, it wouldn't have been a big deal:

Should Jill Hadassah have not enjoyed Trig’s playing with her, guess it would have reminded us another important lesson – sometimes life jumps up and bites you in the okole, but you don't stop moving and baby you just Shake It Off.

Yes, that was a Taylor Swift reference. Because Sarah Palin is that serious about this issue.

Look, this isn't a political thing, this isn't a thing about attacking her just because of who she is. This is about people being upset that a woman thought it was acceptable for her kid to stand on her poor dog, that she thought it was inspirational instead of dangerous. Regardless of her political views, humans should not stand on dogs. It's actually a pretty simple concept to grasp, and the fact that she can't get that, well, that speaks more to her ignorance than anything else.

Also, let's let a special needs dog bite a special needs kid so the special needs kid learns a lesson, right? Makes sense in Sarah Palin's world doesn't it? Unfortunately, that's the only place it does.

As we predicted, PETA wasn't happy with the above photo posted by Sarah Palin on her Facebook account ... but what's more is that Sarah Palin fired back with her own well-worded (I know, we were surprised, too) response that ... well, if you totally brainwashed yourself into forgetting that we were talking about a child standing on a dog's back, with the possibility of that child knocking a few vertebrae out of line, or that dog getting sick of being used as a step stool and taking a big ol' bite out of the kid's leg, she made a lot of sense. 

Take it away, Sarah:

Dear PETA,

Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.

Hey, by the way, remember your “Woman of the Year”, Ellen DeGeneres? Did you get all wee-wee’d up when she posted this sweet picture?http://conservatives4palin.com/…/peta-woman-year-posts-phot…Hypocritical, much?

Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?

Aren’t you the double-standard radicals always opposing Alaska’s Iditarod – the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces, while some of your pets “thrive” in a concrete jungle where they’re allowed outdoors to breathe and pee maybe once a day? (http://iditarod.com/ http://www.irondog.org/)

Aren’t you the same herd that opposes our commercial fishing jobs, claiming I encourage slaying and consuming wild, organic healthy protein sources called “fish”? (I do.)

Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar”.

Yeah, you’re real credible on this, PETA. A shame, because I’ll bet we agree on what I hope is the true meaning of your mission – respecting God’s creation and critters.

Our pets, including Trig’s best buddy Jill Hadassah, are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don’t fit your flighty standards.

Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.

You don't have to like Sarah, per se, but you do have to admit one thing: she sure has gusto, doesn't she?

Sarah Palin is all about faith and family and life ... but apparently only when it comes to human faith, family, and life, because that poor (family) dog up there? He doesn't exactly look too comfortable while Sarah's (adorable) 6-year-old son uses him as a step stool to get something off the counter. 

See, Sarah not only took the time to allow this to happen, but she took the time to snap a few pictures of it happening as well, which is just as good as condoning it. She didn't say, "Trig, honey, do try to not break the dog's back, let me help you, dear." Nope, she took photos. And not only did she take photos, she shared them on her Facebook page with this horrific caption: 

"May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for 'up!', found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone."

 "Oblivious" mama indeed ... also "idiotic," "insensitive," and shamefully disrespectful with regard to the life of a "lazy dog" in allowing a poor child who was never taught any better to allow a living being as his "stepping stone." 

Shame on you, Sarah Palin. You're a terrible human being.

Rainy night in NYC with @Prince_Hilton_The_Pom. ☔️🗽👸🐶

View on Instagram

OK, so Paris Hilton's newest million-dollar (not, but close) Pomeranian dog is the cutest. He is as cute a dog as Taylor Swift's cat, Olivia Benson, is as cute a cat -- translation: if Prince Hilton and Olivia happened to be the same species and procreated, they'd have the best, most adorable pet babies in the whole entire world. 

And as far as the whole "mother" bit, Paris would make a good mom if she had a child and treated it half as well as she does this dog, because come on -- this is one adorable dog, one adorable getup, and one adorable video.

Are you sick from all the cute yet?

"I have to not make myself sick over it because that's what I did at first. I loved him so much. I really shut down more than I've ever let myself. ... I would just want [Floyd] to know that I'm doing [Floyd-dedicated performances onstage] for him." 

--Miley Cyrus during her recent 2-hour NBC special, which was basically a little bit about her "Bangerz" tour, and mostly about her poor, deceased dog, Floyd, who was killed by a coyote earlier this year.

Later on, Miley talks about how the universe only doles out famous-responsibility to those who can handle it (uh, Amy Winehouse? Kurt Cobain? Two people infinitely more talented and innovative than Miley, and apparently those poor folks couldn't handle the "responsibility" handed out by the universe), and she claims that she can: 

"The universe gives this responsibility to people who can handle it, and I believe I can handle it." 

Here's my question, though: why are we still even doing specials on Miley Cyrus anymore? Why bother when there's a whole slew of other artists out there who are actually breaking ground, not breaking the hearts of parents and young fans who realize that Hannah Montana isn't really Hannah Montana at all? 

Here are a few videos from from just last night that show just how far Miley's fallen since her heyday (and how creepily unfunny she's gotten, too): 

Boy. Case in uncomfortable point, huh?

OBVIOUSLY, they're both super cute in different ways, because hopefully nobody wants to do the things to Iggy Azalea's new dog, Jelli, that they'd want to do to her adorable backside, if that's even the right word for it (no; it sounds just wrong), but you get the idea. 

Iggy adopted the new pup, telling the world that she's a "new puppy mama," and man -- how cute is Jelli? How cute is Iggy, sitting there all casually in her shorts and minimal makeup and that pair of Adidas-looking flipflops that you couldn't be parted with during the summer of 9th grade? Too cute. The whole picture screams "cute," and that's quite a departure from the other more lewd, suggestive things that get screamed whenever Iggy's in the general vicinity. 

Adorable dog, girl, and you're still hot as heck, too.

Miley Cyrus
Bet you'll never guess what Miley Cyrus spent essentially her whole dang weekend doing, y'all! She spent it crafting beaded jewelry in memory and honor of her late, great dog -- Floyd -- who was killed in a coyote attack earlier this spring, and making generally ... um, compelling shrines to the deceased animal.

... But since you're looking at this post, and you have eyes, then you can see that she did it rather stylishly, because isn't she just looking great these days? Her hair's growing out a little bit, and the baby-blonde platinum color she's working with is really great, but man, that shrine stuff. 

See it for yourself:


We're not going to say that all of this is inappropriate, because hey: it's none of our business the way that grief works for some people over certain events in their lives. No judgement, girl, none at all. But we will say that it's probably a really good thing that Miley's got a new dog, Emu -- with Floyd's blessing, of course -- and now maybe she'll be able to fully heal or something. 

Here's another shot, for you and for Floyd:
