    I don't really care about Bindi Irwin but once I saw the article it reminded me Gilbert. I can't get Gilbert's Bindi Irwin bit out of my head. One of the funniest bits ever on the Stern Show. The show actually made people laugh once but that was a long time ago in a Galaxy far, far, away.

    Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin, told Sydney's Daily Telegraph that an essay she wrote for Hillary Clinton's e-journal was so heavily edited that her message became twisted in the process.

    Bindi, 14, said she was asked to write a 1,000-word essay on wildlife conservation and overpopulation. She submitted her work to Clinton's staff, but when the edited version was sent back, Bindi said, she hardly recognized her own words.
    Bindi—a worldwide star who has penned a book series aimed at young readers, has starred in movies and TV programs and is a wildlife conservationist—told the Daily Telegraph that she decided to withdraw the essay from publication. "My words were twisted and altered and changed. I was a little bit shocked, to tell you the truth," she said.
    (The paper did not mention whether it had tried to reach a staffer at the e-journal for a response.)

    Bindi explained that the editing of a part about overpopulation stung the most. In the essay, she compared overpopulation on the planet with a birthday party to which 15 people are invited but 70 show up. "I was really sad, and I think it was more frustration because I'm trying so hard to get the message across and I guess some people don't want to listen," Bindi said.
    Bindi's mom said her daughter even wrote a letter to Clinton's organization that said, "What happened to freedom of speech? This is my opinion, and I don't want that edited out."

    Bindi, however, said she's still a fan of Clinton. "I would love to see her running for president one day because she's doing a really great job," she said.

    Get over yourself Bindi, you wouldn't get any attention at all if your father wasn't famous and most of the world doesn't care if you live or die.

    To me, she just seems like a nice girl who has a genuine lifelong interest in simply carrying on what her father was doing when she lost him at the age of 6 or 7. Not really sure what the basis of hating someone like her might be for that. There's no shortage of genuine cunts like Robin and Howard to goof on, not to mention about another 1,000 celebutards who promote themselves shamelessly and have no real interests in anything remotely genuine or philanthropic.

    She thankfully has grown to be pretty. She was half-monkey looking when younger.
