    She would probably have more followers and be more successful if she did that to begin with and not politics. I think acting in front of a camera suites her.

    Has anyone considered that she might be pitching an actual movie about her experiences and not a reality show?

    She's such an embarrassment to our state. Keep her from doing further damage. We don't need her pretense anymore that the rest of the states. Keep her out of public office, and out of promoting herself as an apology
    for her failed governorship. No more!

    She is an embarrasment to this country, an opportunistic woman, greedy, no patriotism at all, how low we can get electing officials of this caliber. Shame on you Palin

    Well folks...let's just say that she got people talking about her AGAIN!!
    This is what she wants. Whether you like her or not, she's not so dumb after all...she knows exactly what she's doing. She will get her reality show and people who don't like her will tune in and make her show number 1....just wait and see! Too bad!

    Palin is honestly like Celine Dion...SHE WON'T GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!! Celine still tries to get people to give her attention...this is Palin as well. She's a psycho. Something needs done about both hags. Celine had a decent voice, YEARS AGO. MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIVES! Seriously...THEY BOTH should. Someone should make Palin live in Lunacy, Alaska. I hear it's the type of place for lunatics like her.

    Ken says, "She's smart. She's funny. She's preety. But she's against abortion, so the left hates her."

    Did you see any of her interviews? When you start off a sentence by saying Palin is smart, it says a LOT about your intelligence. The woman is as intellectually challenged, as any politician I've ever seen in my lifetime. Thinks Africa is a country, can't name a single newspaper or magazine, thinks being Russia's neighbor makes her qualified in foreign affairs. I wonder about your definition of smart. Watching Palin during an interview reminds me of watching Jessica Simpson being puzzled by Chicken of the Sea Tuna. Birds of a feather.

    I'd like to know how Palin's supporters can honestly believe she'll run... her duties on this show would conflict with the time frame of the '12 GOP primary season.

    sometimes you get what you ask for. if there was no platform for this woman she wouldn't be as "in your face" as she is now. don't worry, somebody else will come along in due time. Palin took over from Blagojevich when he was hot news, and the next political celebrity is not far behind.

    First off:
    Mike,
    Most Native villages in Alaska are dry. Meaning alcohol isn't allowed. Can you a be any more condescending? Don't put down a place you have never been to or the people that live here. We live in tiny little shacks in the freezing cold because we know how to survive here and we are culminating a lifestyle that has been forgotten by many. Many of which live in this state think like you as well. Including Mrs. Palin.

    I'm from Alaska and I'm embarrassed of Palin. She's not even native to Alaska and tries to bear the name tag of being a true Alaskan woman. Just because your kid plays hockey and you named your ill-advised daughter after a bay in Alaska doesn't make you a true Alaskan of this state.

    Wake up Palin. We don't want a show about Alaska. You will make it like Jersey Shore. If you want to make a reality show, join celebrity rehab and get help for whatever drugs are making you say the nonsensical things you do. The only good to come out of Palin's fame is a good Halloween costume (which my college peers loved) and a fantastic parody for Tina Fey to portray.

    Let me see if I've got this right....

    First she's picked as a VP candidate for all angry Hillary voters that might have taken McCain over the top if they'd only stop thinking about issues for a couple minutes on election day.

    Then, she quits in the middle of her term as Governor to "help" America in other ways besides being just a plain ol' politician, knocks out a book in 6 months, and goes on tour in a bus like a bad episode of "The Partridge Family".

    Then she gets a gig on Fox News while also attempting stand-up comedy and now she shopping a reality show about Alaska?

    Seriously....This woman is about 2 minutes away from announcing her foray into porn. 1st film....."Who's Nailin Palin"?

    When is this ever going to end? She should just "GO AWAY " and take care of her kids. If she does get a show it will probably just show the "nice" side of Alaska, I've been to villages and believe me, I bet she won't be visiting any of them because she's to oblivious to the real world.

    She already had her 15 seconds of fame during the 2008 presidential campaign...she should just go away. I can't believe there are people in America that still believe that Sarah Palin is competent and qualified to be in office. It only makes me wonder about the state of mind of the American people that support her.
