Patty Hearst Wins with Bitch at Westminster

The NY Times blog, The Lede, seems to think Patty Hearst, heiress/kidnap victim, has been sitting on her ass in Connecticut since she got out of that prison cell, only to re-emerge at the Westminister Kennel Club show. Mike Nizza thinks she ditched taco night at the sorority to join the SLA and completely ignores her real come-back–Serial Mom, directed by the immortal/immoral John Waters:

The bitch above is Kathleen Turner. The canine version, Diva (real name: Shann’s Legally Blonde) won a ribbon for Best of Opposite Sex in the French bulldog competition, the runner-up prize. Don’t know if she’s wearing white shoes.

(Nizza’s not really a reporter, but boy can he code!)
