(CNN) - Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will appear in a new eight-part documentary series on the TLC network, parent company Discovery Communications said Thursday.

The show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska," will be "about the remarkable Governor Palin and her home state of Alaska," the Discovery statement said. Its executive producer will be Mark Burnett, who previously was executive producer for "Survivor" and "the Apprentice."

"Discovery Communications is so excited to help Sarah Palin tell the story of Alaska, and to have a great documentary filmmaker in Mark Burnett helping to reveal Alaska's powerful beauty as it has never been filmed, and as told by one of the state's proudest daughters," Peter Liguori, chief operating officer of Discovery Communications, said in the statement.

"We are confident 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' will be another compelling television event," said Eileen O'Neill, TLC president and general manager, in the statement.

Discovery Communications did not specify a date for the series premiere.

Mark Burnett Productions previously co-produced "Eco-Challenge" for Discovery Channel from 1996 through 1999, according to the statement. Burnett was quoted in the statement as saying Palin has "a dynamic personality that has captivated millions ... I can't think of anyone more compelling than Sarah Palin to tell the story of Alaska."

Variety reported on Tuesday the former Republican vice presidential nominee will likely nab $1 million an episode for the program.

    For those of you who still view Palin as a breath of fresh air and Miss Honesty incarnate, you might want to visit this link. Read the whole article. In it you will note how amply she rewarded friends and campaign donors with very well-paying positions in her administration here in Alaska. Didn't matter whether they were qualified or not; just how much money they gave her campaign.

    Why on earth would TLC talk to Sarah Palin? It's not like she's has a wealth of knowledge inside that brain of hers. Didn't she quit being governor of her own state, didn't she lose the election, didn't get her degree from community college in something other than politics? Sounds like this interview should have been conducted by FIXED News , I mean FoxNews.

    Sarah Palin is the most ridiculous politician I have ever seen.

    She trys to encourage people to "Take back America"....and if her party did take back America, what would they do with it? They had 8 years.

    They don't have anything they can brag or boast about, as far as what they have done for our country; they have no opinions or game plans; so the only thing they can do is try to knock down the opposition.

    Obama started to tackle issues the day he was elected. He has pushed forward in the midst of the Republicans refusal to assist. He gave them every chance for their voices to be heard regarding healthcare, but the only voice from them we heard was "no".

    McCain even made the comment after the bill was passed "We will not support anything Obama puts on the table in the future". What does that tell you? It doesn't matter what good Obama does for the American people, it is already decided they will be against it.

    Republicans are sore losers. Watching them on television, I see a party who is not just against democrats but against democracy and a united front. They make their decisions based on politics alone; without regard for what is best for those less fortunate. They are arrogant and shallow.

    Now Sarah Palin wants a reality show and is asking one million dollars an episode. Now there's a lady interested in the suffering of children and the concerns of the middle class.

  18. dobieman might want to Google her tenure in office as the mayor of Wasilla. Check on some of the tactics she used in smearing her opponents in running for the office. She is quoted as saying after her election how good it is that Wasilla will have a Christian running the place. She alluded to her opponent as being Jewish during the campaign. Somehow that made him less than qualified in her eyes. What was ironic about that is he is a Lutheran and she knew it but his last name was "Stein"....
    You might also want to check on how once she got into that office somehow she "convinced" the Wasilla assembly to change the property covenants for her house so she could do some remodeling. Apparently, no one else had been able to get similar requests approved on their properties at the time.
    Then there is the matter of Bristol's pregnancy. You know who broke that little news item to the national press? Dear Sarah. Seems some bloggers were claiming that her own baby, Trig (if I recollect the name and I could be wrong) was actually the child of one of her daughters and she was saying it was hers to cover that up. No one really put any credence in that but Sarah had to protect her public image as v.p. candidate and so she let it be known Bristol was pregnant, thereby proving Trig was her own child. And a new definition of "sleazy" was born.
    Then there is the matter of her having her water break while she was campaigning in the Lower '48. As any medical professional and any mother will tell you, when the water breaks you head to the nearest hospital. Sarah, though, got on a jet and took 13 hours to fly back up here where she could have the baby. Who knows what damage that did to a child already suffering from Down's Syndrome? But you know what? By doing so she was able to collect the Permanent Fund Dividend check for the baby for his first year, something she could not have done had he been born in the Lower '48. That was an extra $1300 in her pocket.
    Yeah...she's a real model of motherhood and American apple pie, that Sarah is....
    As the young lady who played a girl with Down's Syndrome on "Family Guy" said when Sarah got into a hissy fit about the character, said young lady is also a Down's Syndrome child and she figured she is better qualified than Sarah to judge how to respond to the situation in the world of tv. She also mentioned how even she knows better than to carry her baby around like a loaf of bread.
    I noticed that shut the Divine Palin up right quickly. (Thank heavens something does!)

    Drushsean...I realize the actual truth about Sarah may shatter your image of her carefully cultivated in what you so accurately described as a "novel", a novel being a fictional piece of work. But I had to live under her governorship. Every day I picked up the paper and read about some lunacy on her part, some grand scheme that sounds terrific and never goes anywhere. Every winter's start the paper would blare out a headline that the "Wolf Killing Season Begins" and all those brave souls would overfly the wolves and shotgun them from the air or run them to exhaustion, land and shoot them. All the while Sarah would be waxing poetic (if you can call it that) about how she loved the wilderness and respected the wildlife and just so loved Alaska.
    Chances are you've never seen ANWR, have you? I have. And I've seen what even just walking over the ground can do to it. A few years ago some idiots illegally drove their 4WD's off the road onto the tundra and got them stuck miles from the only road, the Dalton Highway. It took them months and several thousands of dollars to haul them out and the ruts they made will just get deeper and deeper each spring thaw. Palin doesn't mind the thought of exploration activity and drilling in such incredibly fragile habitat. She just wanted the money to come in. The Native groups around ANWR do not want it open. But Sarah wasn't about to listen to them.
    Well, her big claim to fame up here is the gas pipeline. To listen to her describe it, Alaska is right on the verge of a second major boom and we will all be rolling in money. And Sarah is the reason why.
    Problem ain't gonna happen. There are now three gas lines running to the Lower '48 from elsewhere and the market for our gas is gone. We missed our chance because in part Sarah didn't do her work as governor and her replacement didn't, either. And we had a Legislature that dropped the ball and with whom Sarah was at war by the time she quit.
    So her legacy on the gas line is all in her mind. I'll gladly pay you $100 for every foot of pipeline that has been laid according to her plans. (I won't be losing a dime on that offer.)
    In today's Fairbanks Daily News-Miner is an article quoting our outgoing University of Alaska president, Mark Hamilton. He's done a terrific job as university president, is a retired general, has garnered a lot of respect from both sides of the political aisle. And his parting words are that we had better not pin our hopes on the gas line because it is a rapidly fading star.
    Sarah can proclaim herself the savior of Alaska all she wants in her "novel" about herself. The truth is she did very little and what little she did was too little and too late.
    Why do you think she quit and is selling herself to Hollywood?

    Remember when TLC used to be know as The Learning Channel, and they had shows that were educational and family friendly? What happened? If Sarah Palin was remarried to a midget, had 20 kids, and one of them baked cakes, and one of them was addicted to drugs, and they all were hoarders, then decided to remodel the house after the hoarding...then it would be the "best" show on TLC.

    I'm all for this show. I'm really hoping to see her run in 2012. Both for the comedy of it all, as well as the fact that she's a guaranteed 2nd term for Obama. More opportunities for her to make scripted, well produced, media appearances make it less likely for her to remind everyone how much of an idiot she is.

    Sorry, just goes to show what happens when you don't actually live in Alaska but feel you are an expert on Sarah Palin. The very first ethics charge about her per diem stuck and stuck hard to the tune of several thousands of dollars she had to pay back.
    Up until Sarah, all of our governors upon election moved to Juneau and lived in the governor's mansion. It was provided as a benefit of taking the office. Sarah didn't want to move to Juneau so she stayed in her house in Wasilla and commuted (in a nice, expensive state-bought car) to Anchorage each day she worked. What she also did was charge the state per diem for staying in her own house. When that violation was brought to the attention of the courts she lost the case and had to repay several thousands of dollars in per diem payback.
    She also lost a case where she kept hauling her family along on expensive (for us Alaskans) trips, letting the state pay for their food, lodgings, transportation as she claimed they were all "representing Alaska". Those expenses were eventually disallowed in most of the instances and she had to reimburse the state.
    In the Troopergate case, while she wasn't found guilty of an ethics violation it was clear from the court decision she was teetering right on the very edge.
    Next time you might want to do your homework rather than depend on what she had some ghostwriter put in her book. I would suggest you do searches on the Anchorage Daily News as an excellent source for this info; the Juneau Empire is also quite good.

    Why are liberals so angry at Sarah Palin?

    She isn't the one who negotiated a massive government takeover of the private sector behind closed doors.

    She isn't the one who bribed US Senators and Congressmen to get her unconstitutional agenda passed.

    She isn't the one who has renigged on (almost) every promise made during the campaign.

    She isn't the one creating unsustainalbe deficits that our children's children will have to deal with.

    She isn't the one eroding your liberties.

    She isn't the one who claims to know how to handle your medical care better than you do.

    She isn't the one forcing every American to buy a product (health insurance), in direct violation of the Constitution.

    "I can see Russia from my house!" – Sarah Palin never said that, Tina Fey did. Sarah Palin was responding to a question from ABC's Charlie Gibson about whether or not Alaska's proximity to Russia gave her an insight into Russia's actions surrounding the 2009 incident between Russia and Georgia. While Palin did state that there are areas in Alaska where one can see Russia from, she did not claim that she could see Russia from her house, nor did she claim that she has foreign policy experience because of Alaska's proximity to Russia.

    Liberals have been terrified of Palin from day one.

    If she is just some dumb bimbo from Alaska, why have liberals spent so much time, money, and energy on trashing her?

    Liberals need to get with the picture, 62% of Americans support the Republicans continuing to to fight Obama care.

    The 'honorable' former half-a-term serving governor of Alaska is rather 'unremarkable'. She is a quitter: Six colleges, each attended for a couple semesters or so. A little stint in the town council of Wassila, then mayor, then an "unsuccessful campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Alaska (2002), she chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 until she resigned in 2004.(another quitting job) If anything she is good at quitting (and of course hunting moose). Let's see how quickly she quits her TV show. Not much hearing from her FOX TV consulting job either. I would suggest, her record is thoroughly unremarkable. We'll leave it at that. Till in Oklahoma

    Didn't Ms. Palin just tell the tea-baggers "don't back down, reload"? Isn't that like the extremist Muslim preachers preaching to put on bomb belts and go blow up in public places?

    She has clearly shown herself to have a difficult time with geography, history, social-political facts and other little details, why would anyone but a political show want her on? To use her to tell about Alaska for a documentary seems to completely discount the concept that it is to be a documentary - more likely a political satire. Ms. Palin does have name recognition, but so does Osama Bin Laden, who is probably better informed about Alaska.

    Discovery Channel: Are you reading any of this? As an Alaskan I can tell you that the idea of Palin showcasing our natural beauty and wildlife is a complete joke.

    When the quitter was in office, she began a lawsuit with the United States to take Polar Bears off the endangered species list, her cronies are trying to take federal protection away from a small species of Beluga whales, she likes the idea of shooting and gassing wolves so hunters from the lower 48 can shoot moose, she openly mocks science, and probably stopped learning about science, geography, and life in general when she was 10 and figured out she could 'wink' her way through life.

    Has The Learning Channel taught the viewing masses anything since it became a reality TV network? Let's recap what we learned...
    Kate and Jon can't get along and have no business having 8 kids.
    Little people are still being paraded around to gawk at.
    Some woman need the help of 2 pretentious hosts to tell them what not to wear
    When you put a father and his 2 sons in front of cameras while building motorcycles, tempers will fly to the point of kicking in doors on a weekly basis.
    A quitter politician who has a horrendous record of environmental injustices and ethics violations can have a network pimp out a false representation to help her win votes in the next presidential election.
    TLC should change its name to "Time to Lose the Controller". If there is a dummer station on TV besides Bravo, please tell me.

    Hey Bubba, Sarah, Eli and Lucy – It seems that everyone else has given reasons beyond bleeding heart liberalism of why they don't like Palin. Yet you just say inane things like, "You go, Girl" and "Sarah is way smarter than you libs." Saying she is smarter doesn't make her so. Please see the Katie Couric interview. See the debate. She is a total idiot and a quitter. I haven't heard one thing come out of her mouth that instills confidence in her ability to lead. It seems like her backers can't think of anything either. That is funny. I do follow her for the same reasons people follow Howard Stern and Rush Limbaugh. I can't wait to hear the idiotic things they'll say next.

    Oh...another example or two of how "revered" she is by the Republicans. If you will recall the RNC let her participate in one public debate after which they were very careful to keep her away from that venue. She has consistently shut out any media from her appearances and continues to do so.
    Why? Because she cannot perform with a script in those circumstances. She would be forced to rely on her own abilities and knowledge which she knows are nowhere up to par. When you see her appear in public she will not be under any real pressure to think or act in a dignified, intelligent manner. All she has to do is wave the flag, sound folksy, and pretend she is just one of common folks.
    We lived under her idiocy for 2 1/2 years up here in Alaska. We know what the real Sarah Palin is like. And frankly, I would just about give my right arm to see her run for office up here again for it would be a humiliation the likes of which only she deserves. I hope she runs in 2012. Then, when all the dust clears and she is standing there with less than 20% of the vote, maybe finally she might get the message that you can't fool all the people all the time.

    I wonder if they'll make any mention of Palin's horrible animal policies. Doubt it. Do you think they'll mention how she introduced legislation into her state for the aerial gunning of wolves or the poisoning of wolf pups at their den? Doubt it. Do you think they will show how the so-called "governor" of Alaska is a big-time quitter? Definitely not. TLC really has some balls putting the poster girl for anti-environment and animal rights abuses on a special about the great state of Alaska and its beauty.

    I lived on the Kenai Penninsula in Alaska for 2 years. What a truly remarkable place. It sickens me that this bible fundamentalist witch is going to use this show to improve her image as a pseudo environmentalist to gear up her campaign for a run at the presidency. Wake up America! Please don't give this moron more than the 15 minutes she deserves.

    BTW, I am an independent, not an elephant or jack-ass. I call it like I see it, not because a political faction in this country tells me how to think.

    I've noticed a number of posters saying this is all liberal hogwash and hatred. You might want to check with the Alaska Republican Party. No sooner did she ride into the governor's mansion on their coattails than she was claiming the state's party leader should be kicked out. When arch-Republican Ted Stevens was on trial, she publicly stated he should resign his office. Similarly, when another arch-conservative, Don Young, was also placed under investigation, she called for his resignation.
    She was found guilty of an ethics violation within her first year in office.
    As to her business acumen, she and her hubby ran a snowmobile shop into the ground before she went into politics. Can you imagine what it takes to do that in Alaska???

    I'll tell you what, though...all you people so entranced with her... Start a campaign to have her as governor for your state. Since you are so convinced of her honesty and ability and intelligence, let her take over where you live. In other words, put your money where your mouth is.

    To Maegan, Bubba, Lucy, and all the others duped by Sarah Palin....

    I've lived in Alaska over 40 years, longer than Sarah was ever here. Under her mercifully-truncated governorship I have seen it made legal for wolf pups to be pulled from their dens and shot or gassed to death in their dens. She allowed nursing females to be chased down and shot which means any litters will die from starvation. She tried to enact a bounty on wolves. All of this so her trophy-hunting buddies will have more chances to hang a moose head on their wall. If you look at a map of the areas in which she enacted aerial wolf hunting you will see they are not areas generally used by subsistence hunters but by city hunters.
    Further, as to her intelligence and writing ability...she had to go to three colleges to finally get a degree in journalism then, despite this degree, she hired a ghostwriter to write the book. Whenever she spoke up here without a script she tossed out word salad in a mishmash of half-thoughts and inaccuracies that left people wondering what the heck she just said.
    A number of people who worked on the oil and gas commission with her told how a little ways into a meeting you could see her tune out and just sit there letting everything flow in one ear and out the other. She claims to have left us this grand legacy of resource development but the fact is not one constructive step has been taken towards anything like the goals first set and, frankly from what many wiser minds here in the state have lately observed, you don't want to hold your breath waiting for it to happen.
    When she took over the town of Wasilla as its mayor it had zero debt. When she left it was $21 million in debt and had a big, new sports arena which it needed like about as much as Finland needs an alligator control squad.
    Her aproval ratings when elected stood at 89%. By the time she left office it was down to 45% and still dropping.
    She has the intelligence of a beauty contest runner-up, which is what she was in her earlier years. She truly believes, and has stated so, that dinosaurs and humans co-existed 6,000 years ago.
    She is well-known for appointing friends and relatives to positions in the state government for which they had absolutely no qualifications. And excellent example is family friend Corey Rossi for whom she created the position of "Abundance Manager" in our Fish and Game Dept. His job? To see to it as many wolves are killed so the trophy-hunters of the NRA (to which she belongs) and other such groups will have plenty to shoot. Problem is Rossi doesn't even have a college degree in wildlife management and no experience. To put him in his present position they demoted a biologist with 30 years' experience and a degree in the science.
    She was a disaster for Alaska, a hypocrite of the worst order, and about as honest and credible as Richard Nixon. In fact, I would call her a chimera, having Nixon's "ethics", the "intelligence" of Dan Quayle, and the "leadership" of Bush. Yet, because she comes in a pretty package and sounds all folksy and down-home, folks turn a blind eye to these immense failings.
    Remember the $40k make-over the RNC "forced" on her? My, how she fought that. And the $150k wardrobe? As yet, not a stitch of those clothes have been verified has being donated despite her claims. First chance she got she was shopping Macy's, Saks, staying first-class in the most expensive hotels.
    And for those of you who think Alaska is fantastic, yes, it is. I know that first hand in so many ways, having climbed on glaciers, gone up mountainsides, canoed, hiked, hunted, collected mammoth tusks and other bones, etc. But if you think you are going to get an honest view of life up here from her, forget it.
    She is all about the money. Always was; always will be. Her excuse for quiting the governorship? She wanted to spend more time with her family and spare them the limelight. Amazingly, within a few months she had signed onto a book deal, was appearing on various shows, got into the Fox network, and now this.
    I hope you folks talking about loving Alaska and wanting to see it realize by supporting this show you will only be putting money in her pockets some of which will go towards groups like the NRA, Safari Club International, and other trophy-hunting groups that are slowly but surely killing off the best of Alaska's wildlife.
    Oh..and Bubba? Until you have lived up here, don't presume to tell us Alaskans she is the best thing that ever happened. We know better.

How can the people of Alaska and TLC say she best represents that state. She QUIT her job as governor so she can go on her book signing tour and prep for life as a reality tv star. She's a QUITTER folks!!! And for those saying this is about female jealousy, let me speak up for all of us women out there. I'm an attractive hard working educated woman and trust me, there is nothing about this woman that I envy. The fake winks and the "you betchas", and that squeeky helium voice, and the dumb answers to everything from politics to foreign affairs, makes my skin crawl.

    Let's face it – Sarah Palin has charisma. She is a dynamic force in many ways. However, is this woman even remotely worth the attention she has received? She is attractive, in spite of the flight attendant hairstyle, and she has the persona of a high school homecoming queen, but let's face it; would she even be given the time of day if she had the looks and personality of, say Janet Reno?
    Her folksy vernacular may be appealing to some, but though we want our political leaders to know and understand us, do we really want them to actually BE us? Imagine her in the White House – GOD FORBID -juggling the economy, terrorist threats etc. while irritated by the renagade (daughter's) ex-boyfriend's spread in Playgirl magazine. Can we really trust the integrity of a woman – so instable in her commitments that she simply stepped out on the people who elected her as governor of their state as soon as a larger carrot was dangled in front of her nose?
    Can we trust someone who, at any given crisis, may hear God tell her to reload?

    Sarah Palin, a "dynamic personality"??? You're kidding, right? The only reason Palin is liked is because of those tight skirts she wears. Anyone who encourage people to "reload" and take aim at humans need to be in jail not on a reality show. If this happens, I too will never watch TLC ever again.

    Alaska is a beautiful state, and I cannot wait to see this documentary! Who said this had ANYTHING to do with politics? This is just a documentary to showcase the beautiful scenary and tell the tales of the history in Alaska. PALIN WENT TO SCHOOL FOR JOURNALISM! So good for her! She is putting her college degree to use to help with this documentary, and through the articles she has written lately. If you ever dare put your political views to the side you would be able to see that she is a remarkable writer, and a talented person. Why do politics have to get in the way of everything for so many people? People are people, now lets celebrate what they have to offer without being so close minded about it! STOP BEING SO CRUEL! And while I'm at it, STOP FIGHTING ABOUT POLITICS! Don't we all want the same things? To have this country strive to the fullest? Then lets start compromising and make things work in this country! Our culture and country as a whole are in great need right now. We are teaching our children to not play along well! Isn't compromise a backbone to everything!?

    Here's my question: Does TLC have a back up plan? I mean, I know this is supposed to be an 8 part series, but Mrs. Palin's track record doesn't do much to convince me that she'll make it past episode 4...

    I DO NOT want to "get to know Alaska" through her skewed eyes. Please. TLC, you should be ashamed of yourself. I understand that you may want to branch out to other types of programming that don't focus on one uninteresting family after another, but this isn't the way to go. Just re-run What Not To Wear or that show about women who don't know they're pregnant until the kids enters kindergarten...

    Has anyone noticed that many channels have morphed lateley. I think they are owned by the same company. History channel doesn't have much history. Instead it has ghost stories about historical places or documentaries about predicting the "end of the world" with the Mayans and Nostradamos. Animal Planet is all about scaring people now. What ever happened to the shows that teach about animals in their habitats. Every show is something about animals attacking humans, ghost stories with animals, and even one show about small/little people and pit bulls. TLC is all about people with various types of disorders or problems, exploiting their pain for entertainment. It's sad.

    All politics aside, any program narrated by her is a program in which I will gouge my ear drums out with a vegetable peeler. Her voice is THE most annoying sound in the universe, I couldn't even listen to a thing she had to say during the presidential debates, I had to mute the TV and put on the closed captioning.

    TLC's programming has gone downhill for years, now its all Enquirer programs (freaks, freaks, and freaks), so I guess she'll fit right in, sad as that is. I'm sick to death of reality television to begin with, this is another nail in the coffin.

    To all of the Palin supporters calling the rest of us "haters", au contraire, I can disagree with a politician and still find them a decent person. But Palin has nothing in her worth liking, nothing. She's vapid, ignorant, bigoted, divisive, hateful, whoreish...need I go on? She is the antithesis to what Alaska represents to most Americans, hell she's the antithesis of America itself.

    Since this is a capitalist democracy, as pointed out by several pro-Palin folks, I will be doing my capitalist duty and voting with my dollars, or lack thereof. I will henceforth be canceling the Discovery channel package from my satellite subscription and emailing Discovery LLC to tell them why.

    For those of us who've lived here awhile, former governor Jay Hammond hosted an Alaska show on PBS. We got to see Alaska from his float plane; very cool stuff.

    Widely known as the 'Bush Rat Governor', the man was a gentleman, unassuming, and he loved sharing his favorite places with the rest of us.

    We all loved him, and his passing a few short years ago saddened many of us; we celebrated his remarkable life.

Sarah the hockey-mom’s sarcastic “hopey, changey” is part of her mixed bag full of the smugness of Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady,” plus Peter Sellers “Chance the gardener,” who also walked on water for those ignoring the obvious under the surface, and a wacky Vaudeville illogical logic which makes seeing her and McCain on stage like seiing George Burns and Gracie Allen together again.

    Sarah Palin is stirring up hatred in our country and we are going to feature her in a show about a beautiful and diverse state? Shame on TLC. I enjoyed watching What Not to Wear, which often takes people in average life and help them feel good about themselves. The rest of the shows feature people who are trying to make money off their large family, small family, now divorced family, excessive wedding, and what about the brides who spend more money on their dress and wedding than people in most of the world make in a year. What is wrong with America? TLC and Sarah Palin.

    You don’t need to watch Sara Plain’s Alaska just read the following gist:

    Trailer Park Trash, Red Neck, Meth Lab infested, Moose Killing, Inbreed (I think Palin has a retarded kid) State that allows oil companies to drill and kill endangered species. Because most Alaskans live in oil Dividends.

    Superbit@#$h Palin asked the courts to overturn an Interior Department decision earlier declaring polar bears threatened under the federal law.) This sick F@#k state allows killing of Belugas (we just keep them at SeaWorld here in Ca….. I know not funny)
    Imagine the State of Alaska as God’s freezer – after all they share border with Russia. – That makes all Alaskans Foreign Policy Diplomats.

    I can not only see Tijuana from my hometown of SD I frequently go there (Cheep booze & hookers) that makes me The Head of US -Latin American foreign Policy.

    Oprah interview of Sarah raised the show's ratings.
    Same for Barbara Walters' and Jay Leno's.
    Sarah Palin's memoir sold 2.7 million in one and half months, beating both Bill and Hillary Clinton's books. Her speaking fee is in the six-figure. Tell me why people would pay that big amount.
    As the saying goes "money talks".

    Shara Palin is an insult to even the most well meaning conservatives. This is a women who thinks that Genetics is a joke, she has made fun of fruit-fly research, not knowing that research on fruit flies has discovered cures for many genetic disorders (to many to be counted). She thinks humans lived on the earth at the same time as dinosaurs. She has poorly evolved reasoning faculties, as it always seems to show whenever she comes on public television. On top of that she is nothing more then a power hungry scum bag, who has to write on her palms to figure out what she has to say in front of public. –Oh, and I live in Alaska.

    Better make sure that you script every episode – Palin only "knows" anything when somebody writes it down before for her. If you've read the book "Game Change" then you know how unsuited this sad person is for anything important. I usually like TLC, but I will not watch this series. On the other hand, I am looking forward to Robert Hansen's "Paranormal Court" on TLC this Saturday night – I have seen him in person for a reading and he is the real deal. He gave me messages from a departed friend that were exactly right and very particular to that person. Mr Hansen is a much better idea for a series than sad, sick Palin, who sells herself and her family for money at every turn, and told lies about fake "death panels". Shame on her. for working against the best interests of the American people and our country.

    As an true Alaskan, born and raised in the Kenai Peninsula, I can't think of anyone I would want less to tell the story of my Alaska. She's not in touch with the people, the people of Alaska HATE Sarah Palin, they feel she abandoned them for fame. Peter Liguori called her "one of the state's proudest daughters," she wasn't even born in the state – she is not an Alaskan. She has used Alaska's unique status and capitalized on it's mystique to propel her agenda. I don't want the nation seeing "her Alaska," then all those rednecks, Republican, gun-toting, prejudiced, bigoted, homophobic, jerks will think to go move there. oh wait, that has already happened.

    To all of you posting about how you will watch the show because it is so beautiful up here, I can understand that. It is fall-down stunning up here. But Sarah Palin couldn't care less about Alaska except for where there is money to be made. She refused to block exploration in polar bear habitat even though her own F&G people told her the polar bear population in Alaska is on a decline. She also refused to mark as critical habitat Cook Inlet for the belugas even though once again her own F&G people told her they are dropping in numbers drastically. She has done everything possible to open up more wildlife to being killed and in some pretty brutal ways. The only reason her $150 bounty on wolves (per right foreleg brought in to Fish and Game) didn't go through was it was taken to court and found illegal. She would open up the entire North Slope to oil and gas exploration and development and not care a bit what happens to the wildlife.
    Frankly...and this may seem harsh but it's true...from the perspective of one who has lived here in Alaska for 40+ years, who has hunted and hiked all over the place, having her hosting a program on the beauty of our land and its wildlife would be like asking Hitler to host a program on the Jewish culture.
    (BTW, for those in love with her as an "experienced" politician, a few facts... When she was mayor of Wasilla she tried to have a list of books banned from the public library. When the head librarian refused, she tried to have her fired. So much for the First Amendment.
    When she was elected gov she charged the state for transportation and dinners and hotel rooms whenever she dragged her family around to various events, claiming they were also acting as representatives of the state at the time. She was taken to court and had to pay back almost $9,000 in these billings.
    Recently, it was revealed she has not been paying property taxes on a vacation home she owns just south of Denali. The place is 2 stories, has a sauna, running water, electricity; frankly, it's a much nicer home than many of us have up here and she paid $0 on because she claimed she didn't know she was supposed to declare it to the borough tax office. She will now be paying about $9k on it as it assessed at around $100k.
    I will be watching to see what companies sponsor her show. They won't be getting a dime from me.

    As a woman actually born and raised in Alaska (Sarah was not), I feel compelled to comment. I have never posted a comment on a site before but I have to this time. Former Governor Palin is not as popular in Alaska as some may say. She may claim to be the state's proudest daughter, but I would argue she is more proud of herself. She has not had a presence here since she quit the governor's office. She had her first book signing in another state. When she did have a book signing here it was not open to the public – she blocked out her fellow Alaskans she claims to be so proud of. Most of her time since she quit has been spent traveling and speaking in other locations outside of Alaska. She is not the most compelling person to represent or present our beautiful state full of hard-working, intelligent people from all walks of life. She was divisive in her role as Governor and has continued that path unfortunately on a national stage. As an Alaskan woman, I am embarassed by her.

"Nearly" every person I have talked with agrees that she is not qualified to run the use... or lead the free world. She seems to believe she can and gladly raised her hand to be one heartbeat away from the job. If McCain were elected and died in office (a verly likely possiblity), we would have been calling here Madam President. That would have been scarry.

    Hopefully advertisers on TLC will not support a program that showcases a woman who has contributed extensively to the creation of a hate filled and dangerous climate in this country. During the presidential campaign, people at her rallies yelled "Kill him." Sarah Palin claimed she didn't hear the comments but even after being informed of what had happened, she chose to condone the possibility of murder through her silence. During the recent health care debate, Sarah Palin's repeated lies regarding end of life decisions as well as her recent reload statement were both designed to stir up a bunch of ill informed and scared people who don't even realize that they're being manipulated. While it wasn't politically correct, President Obama's observation that when people get scared, they turn to guns and religion was certainly accurate. If you don't believe it, take a good look at many of the Tea Partiers. It's only a matter of time before one of these people that have been whipped into a frenzy by Palin as well as the Republican leadership actually harms or kills someone. I personally have no desire to watch a network that is advocating hatred and violence through its choice of programming.

Then get a great close-up of how these guns practically cut these animals in half – what great viewing for redneck families and other NRA fans all over America.

    If she had her way, there wouldn’t be any more wolves (or any other animals) in this beautiful state. The environment would be ransacked by the oil companies and this state would have plenty of taxpayer funding for another ‘Bridge to Nowhere’.

    I'd like to take a poll of all the people who responded here – taking an inventory of all the functions you perform in your daily lives. I wonder how many of you have managed people, or a budget in a business. How many of you have risen to a place of leadership close to what Sara Palin has?
    I'm not saying she's the best politician in the world – I'm not saying she's made good decisions along the way – but it's amazing how little respect she gets from people who have no idea what it would take to operate at the levels which she does and be succesful.
    Now, she takes the opportunities that have been presented to her – to "strike"while the opportunities exist – generate some income for her and down the road....and that makes her a bad person?
    I bet you anything – that if CNN reached out to any of you and offered you a few dollars to appear on a TV show to discuss your views you'd be all over it.

    Nicole, Susan..and the few others fooled by Sarah...
    I've lived in Alaska more than 40 years, which is longer than Sarah Palin. It might be a good thing for you to know some unpleasant truths about her that somehow were not in her book (which was ghostwritten, btw).
    Under her the war against wolves and bears reached horrific depths of brutality. Wolves (and in some areas, bears) can be gunned down from planes or helicopters. The wolf pups can be pulled from their dens and shot, or gassed to death in the den. Nursing females can be shot from the air which means the litter starves to death. Black bears, in one area, were open to killing at bait stations where they would be snared then shot, unable to get away or defend themselves. This included females and cubs. All of this she said was done to help the rural residents put food on their tables but if you look at a map, most of the areas are those heavily hunted by city hunters, sports hunters.
    She approved charging rape victims the $82 a rape evidence kit costs, this at a time when we had almost $30 billion in the bank.
    She claims to have gotten a gas pipeline deal going but here we are 3 years after and still not one bolt or nut closer to such an agreement. Further, the deal she said she made was with a Canadian company not an American one, and they get a $500 million tax credit right off the bat.
    Many of her appointments within the government were friends and family friends whose qualificitions were meager at best. A good example is Corey Rossi, appointed to a position Sarah created especially for him at Fish and Game where basically he was in charge of killing as many wolves and bears as possible. He has no college degree in wildlife management and recently 39 biologists retired from F&G wrote a letter denouncing his presence in the department, demanding he be removed. However, he and Sarah belong to powerful trophy-hunting organizations and so he will be staying as they have a lot of say in Alaska, unfortunately.
    Sarah Palin is all charm and no substance. It amazes me that she was able to quit mid-term ("to spend more time with her family" she claimed), something which had a Democrat done would have had Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck screaming like banshees. But because it was Sarah Palin, it's fine and dandy.
    Alaska is going to be a long time recovering from her 2 1/2 years, if we can do so at all.
    Believe me.....when McCain lost the election America dodged one horrendous bullet in the person of Sarah Palin.
    I'm sure she will do well hosting the show as it will be scripted. However, if she wrote it or spoke without notes, you would not understand the vast majority of it. And mind you, as she talks about the beauty of the wildlife in truth she has only viewed it through rifle sights. As she talks about the wonder of the land, she has only looked at it in terms of dollars.
    That is the truth of Sarah Palin.
    When the show comes out, I will be boycotting any advertisers and I will be certain to let them know.

    To all of you who adore Sarah:

    I'm a proud Democrat and not a big fan of Sarah Palin but I do find her interesting and compelling. I do not agree with her politics and would've been horrified if she were President/Vice President. But I still admire her tenacity, drive and conviction. Also, I do agree there's a great deal of 'hate' directed at her. I find this to be an unfortunate and sad truth.

    Although I did not vote for McCain/Palin, I can see why she would do a great job on this type of documentary. Don't forget that she had an 88% approval rating as governor of her state before she decided to run as McCain's VP. She truly loves Alaska as a physical state, and knows a great deal about its resources and beautiful landscape.

    I think it's time to stop being so angry with a politician who did not even win the election and appreciate that she is doing something that is not remotely political with her time. I think this is a good indication she will not be running for president any time soon.

    She loves Alaska, she has a uniquely Alaskan heritage to share, and she's good on camera. Although most people posting here thinks she's dumb as a box of rocks, she's only inexperienced in national politics. I also think she stinks at that, but I think she will do very well showcasing her home state. Plus she's pulling down $1M/episode. If YOU were offered $1M/episode to take a camera crew around your state, YOU'D have to be dumb as a box of rocks to turn it down.

    Wow. I just read a LOT of comments. I'm NOT a Sarah Palin fan. I don't see what the hype is about. There is nothing I find impressive about her

    What I DO find interesting is the sheer amount of abject HATE spewing forth on the comments. The funny thing is many of them are calling the "Right" the party of hate and discrimination. It's the pot calling the kettle black. If you can't see how intolerant you yourself are, maybe you ought to keep your hate-filled speeches locked inside your heart. "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks."

    On that note, I will not be watching the show as I have no interest in the life of Mrs. Palin.

    TLC, "The Learning Channel"... right. Palin's Alaska has nothing to do with the Alaska we live in, it's about more neocon drivel and giving this quitter a another chance to sell some air time. If this were on FoxNews it would make sense–but on a channel supposedly designed to provide academic insight? I will not be watching. TLC, you traded your soul for gold. Sad. This has nothing to do with "left" and "right"–this is about money, and an idiot, and a stump. "Reload!"

    Will the show be subcaptioned "How to rape your state's natural resources, alienate your constituency, quit your responsibilities (althouth that was a blessing) and foil social progress at every turn"? Will TLC show video of her gunning down wildlife from a helicopter and show the receipts indicating public money paid for it? I may have to watch to find out. Maybe she will guest appear in the Duggar show to indicate how she supports unrestrained breeding and supports the view that both purebred people and pets are always superior to adopting foster varieties. Now that's great TV! Spike TV is more and more appealing, especially...MANswers...which says something about TLCs recent choices.

    This is from the Discovery Channel Corporate website:
    "Discovery Communications is so excited to help Sarah Palin tell the story of Alaska, and to have a great documentary filmmaker in Mark Burnett helping to reveal Alaska's powerful beauty as it has never been filmed, and as told by one of the state's proudest daughters," said Peter Liguori, Chief Operating Officer, Discovery Communications.

    "TLC is grounded in great storytelling, strong characters, and passionate audiences drawn to extraordinary people doing extraordinary things. We are confident SARAH PALIN'S ALASKA will be another compelling television event," said Eileen O'Neill, president and general manager, TLC.

    The series reunites the company with Mark Burnett Productions, which co-produced ECO-CHALLENGE, the precursor to Survivor, for Discovery Channel from 1996-1999.

    "With a dynamic personality that has captivated millions, I can't think of anyone more compelling than Sarah Palin to tell the story of Alaska," said Mark Burnett. "I'm thrilled to reunite with Discovery on this project, which brings together one of the most fascinating figures of our time with one of the most wondrous places on earth."

    Just listen to the claptrap quotes from those corporateers. How can they sleep at night after this programming choice?

    IN my opinion the Discovery Channel should be ashamed – very ashamed. They will lose many viewers to gain what? The anti-science crowd to watch their idol? Palin is anti-science! How can you possibly allow this woman to host a show that will showcase the geography and culture of our Northern most state when she know nothing about it's location in the first place? You will be a laughing stock if you go through with this so called "travel"show. IT"S POLITICS! and nothing less. This woman has helped to make a shambles of civilized discourse in our country and you – Discovery and TLC – want to give her this kind of airplay!! I hope you give this some hard and long though before airing this show. I will boycott/block the channel and the advertisers of this show should it continue.

    There was a time, long, long ago in a far away decade where TLC stood for The Learning Channel. Unfortunately, that was then. Now it seems TLC stands more for "Totally Lacking Content." So I suppose Palin fits.

    While I'm thrilled that Discovery is keeping Palin off of the Travel Channel – which would have been a downright slap to the face of just about all of their viewers (people who, oh you know – actually have a passport and have a clue about the world at large) it is sad to see Palin associated with Discovery in any shape or form.

    The woman is the epitome of all that is wrong with America. A flagrant, unadulterated lack of intellectual curiosity combined with an astounding xenophobia. She's like a Paris Hilton that wears underwear and the media personalities that continue her fame-dom should be ashamed.

    Yesterday when I read about this, I was thrilled by it. Various articles made it sound like the show was going to be about Alaska, in a Planet Earth-like documentary, hosted by Sarah Palin (who, being resident and Governor of the state, she knows a lot about and can be a great asset to the show). I was thrilled because she would be doing something apolitical, for the greater good of educating the nation.

    Now, after reading this, this show can just be placed in a dumpster. I don't want to watch a show about Sarah Palin's family, in which inevitably politics will come up. I just. don't. care. I hate Sarah Palin's views on life and politics, and I'm sorry I gave my hopes up that she would finally be doing something good.

These people really know Alaska; they have been there the longest after all. If Palin loves her state as much as she is claiming they why did she step down? I have an answer for that, because she had a taste of fame and is now addicted. Nobody cared about what the Alaskan government was up to until she was the vice presidential candidate.

    Sadly, I'll probably watch just so I can get a good laugh for 8 days. I guess i've been brainwashed too.

Third, no one is taking her serious at all. Lastly, TLC must be hurting for ratings, because out of all the nature experts in the whole world or even Alaska, Mrs. Palin was the only one available???C'mon TLC, you can do better then this.

    Mark Burnett? Really? A "great documentary film maker"? I mean I don't know hardly anyone who who would say: "Oh wow, I cannot stop watching these excellent documentaries on CBS, it's called Survivor!" I don't even recall if that's the correct channel or not, same with "The Apprentice". Nor do I care because reality shows are a joke. So is this what I should expect from a Sarah Palin propaganda film.. I mean great documentary film?

    Why hurt the natural beauty of Alaska by posting her face all over T.V.? Lewis said in 1885 or so I believe that Fascism would show it's face wrapped in an America flag, holding a cross. I'm positive I have seen a photo of Palin with the same description.

    TLC although, I can see where this sorta crap can be profitable for you, I mean obviously exploiting popular social situations has already proved to be quite lucrative. Why not exhibit the things that make American so great! Such as: associate with groups of radical hate mongering right wing nut jobs (Tea Party woo-hoo!!); making a name for yourself as governor, quitting, then making another name for yourself as a VP loser.....and um...well whatever she calls herself now; and mountains.

    Of course TLC wouldn't say when it's coming out, they first have to read these comments to decide whether the controversy is quite literally worth it. No such thing as bad press when it comes to TV because enough people will want to see whether her personal politics are discussed, and i'm sure some people think she's hot enough to stare at for what i'm guessing at least 8 hours.

    The DVD that will obviously be produced could possibly be a great outlet for Palin to further perpetuate her righteous positions on everything. I'm sure for some people this will be the highlight of their Alaska experience.

    When she wins an award for best documentary, maybe she can thank the people shooting at elected officials' offices, calling them names, making awful scenes with highlighter pink protest signs, and God., or by his slave name: Glenn Beck.

    Maybe the extras on the DVD could be some of the U.S. Army weapons manuals that (myself as a former infantryman) and the countless militias forming across the U.S. no doubt will want to refresh themselves on. I'm glad that the Constitution allows me
    to keep weapons, because from the looks of things, citizens that aren't into hating on entire groups of socially opposed or otherwise different from them, are going to need to protect themselves.

    But this could not possibly be that bad, or could it?

    I can see it now:
    Alaska was discovered by a Russian named Bering in a ship inefficiently built by the government which is why it crashed and sank when discovering an Alaskan Island. In 1867 a Republican named Seward secured the purchase of Alaska by the United States. In 1880, Joseph Juneau and Richard Harris, on an expedition using no government funding, found gold. Juneau said, "Dig, baby, dig!" and soon the town of Juneau was established by many gold miners. In the meantime, socialist Tlingit Indian tribes caused problems with claims made on what they called "their" land, but as they had no property certificates they were obviously lying liberals.

There is a huge reason why alaska was one of the first states to legalize medicinal marijuana and is still considered a red state.
    Fact of the matter is that Palin is representing partisan politics that plague the 48 continental states and were absent from her speeches BEFORE she was thrust onto the national stage. THAT sarah palin everyone loved. Thats how she was elected governor in the first place, she rallied against the partisan politics that Frank Murkowski represented when he was governor. A true alaskan would remember that. A true alaskan remembers Palin from that era, the one before the BS. and no, i dont mean her laughable 6 year degree that she ended up with. What she is now is a mockery of the state of alaska.

    In addition, since I am sure that 99% of you have never visited Alaska have no knowledge about the oil business, it might come as a surprise to you that Alaska is one of the most environmental conscious state when it comes to oil exploration and no, you cannot just drill anywhere. Please educate yourself and contact the other states that cull wolves since you are so incensed. Better yet, donate some money to buy wolves and I am sure that Alaskans would trap them instead and send them over to your neighborhood.

Remember, it’s a job Palin swore under oath to the state of Alaska to fulfill.

Seriously, get a real alaskan, someone who was actually BORN here and didnt quit when the job got tough in the middle of their term as governor. Sarah Palin was born in Idillaho, not alaska. She graduated from the University of Idaho (not even the best school in Idaho) with a degree in communications.... and journalism.... yeah, reeeaaaaaaaal qualified for whatever political office she set her eyes on.

It's encouraging to see how much emotion she inspires; that's what gives viability to her candidacy. If people were ambivalent then she could never have won an election in the first place! Personally, I never thought I'd see a half-black president in my lifetime. Just goes to show how far America has changed, and proves to me that even a woman could get elected nowadays. Wow! I don't care if Palin gets elected, but I *do* care if Hillary gets elected! Do I want America's first woman president to be some old bag? No way!

    One of the great things about a remote control and cable is that a person can choose to either watch or not watch a television program if they so desire. Personally, I think it appropriate that the former Governor of Alaska presents her State to the people. Oh, by the way, it is appropriate to use the title "Governor" to a former Governor unless the person has gone on to a higher title such as President or Senator.

    Second – I dont' know where most of you studied your history but I would remind the person claiming that the Republican party is the party of slavery of this one fact: Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

    One could also point out that the Democratic Party was the party in power in most ot the Southern states from the time of Reconstruction until the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This was during the "Jim Crow" years – laws passed by Democratic controlled state houses that denied minorities of their rights and privileges.

    Lastly, most of the people posting here show their complete intolerance of any point of view other than their own. To be certain, Sarah Palin has a very conservative lean – but that doesn't make her immoral or a racist or any of the other names listed above.

I am a democract, but am saddened that she and her tea party followers will be the demise of the republican party. It is a party with justifiable values that balance the democratic party. She is just leading a pack of uninformed people under the republican flag, which is not right. She is only doing this to stay in the spot light and not be forgotten. A total hypocrite and does not deserve to be called "remarkable." What did she do that was so "remarkable?" She was so ignorant that she even thought Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11. Please, please TLC, do not go down this route. You will lose so much respect from many of your viewers. Next time I turn on the TV, I'll be looking at Bravo.

This is an absolutely amazing thing to watch though! No offense to Sarah Palin and I don't mean this literally to her, but no matter how much you polish a turd, in the end, it's still a turd! She may be a nice person and probably an intelligent person (just by the fact she was the Governor of Alaska) but in the end, she is NOT capable enough to run this country nor will she ever be.

    Perhaps we will get to see the side of Sarah Palin I have always wanted to see. When she talks about politics I usually cringe. But if she is going to be on a show about Alaska that might be interesting. I would love to hear her opinion on which of the Susitna tributaries has the best salmon run and when. I'll bet she could give a darn good answer to that question.

    TLC is pretty much at the rock bottom now. Between Jon and Kate, 19 kids and counting, LA Ink, Toddlers and Tiaras and a dozen other shows with midgets, this channel has nothing to offer anymore. This used to be my main channel to watch but now I never bother anymore. I mean seriously, Cake Boss? Really? That's interesting? TLC is supposed to stand for The Learning Channel but what is there to learn about parents who dress their kids up like whores. They completely lost their mission. Turn it on now and I bet there is a guy baking a cake or a parent exploiting their child.

    I wanted to add that I have never voted democrate before this woman came along. I'm an army wife and still voted for "W" twice. I volunteered time with the McCain campaign in my area until he chose her. It is not only liberals who hate this woman. I did not especially want to vote for Obama, but I could not in clear conscience vote for McCain knowing that this ignorant woman would be one heart beat away from the presidency. She encompasses all that is grossly wrong in america at this point in time. I just hope we have a republican candidate that will appeal to America, because if it is Satan...ummm...Sarah...against Obama I will surely be voting for him again. She exemplifies ignorance, close mindedness, and the desire to force everyone to live by her values. I want to decide what books my children have in school, not Sarah Palin. I will not watch this show simply because she is earning money from it. Me not watching it won't change that, but at the same time I don't want to watch it and thus support her.

    Discovery and TLC have hit a new low! I only read two positive comments to this announcement indicating this is a big mistake. TLC, where do you think that a good chunk of this Million per episode will go? To support Palin's Political Pac to "Target" Dems that voted for healthcare for all of America. To help the wing nuts "reload" and incite more violence based on political voting records. Will Discovery and TLC be funding (as allowed by the Supreme Court) more wacked out Republicans in November?

    I cannot believe ANYONE at Discovery believes Sarah Palin has a "dynamic personality...". We've only been watching to see a preview of Tina Fey's material. I was utterly appalled to read she is going to do a series on Alaska. Quite sure there are many other individuals out there fully capable of telling Alaska's story. Can't imagine she'll see this through either. She flits from thing to thing like a butterfly, never staying long enough to complete anything. Sarah's record on the environment , wildlife, family life, etc is pretty dismal. Also can't believe Discovery is paying that obscene amount of money to her.

    This is one person who won't be tuning in or watching any Discovery program again – and we watch a lot of Discovery. How can we find out which companies are going to advertise on her program – or other Discovery programs – and let them know we will no longer purchase their goods?

    There was a time when the only television I wanted was Discovery, TLC, and History Channel. During the past 6-8 years, the "reality" crap has infested what used to be quality educational and documentary programming. TLC was the first to go down the toilet, and now Discovery hangs on by a thread (with the occasional release of quality programming like "Life"). History is has become the paranormal garbage channel.

    I already have enough reasons not to watch TLC, I didn't need one more.

Regardless, this kind of separative talk speaks ill of our ability to find that place of right human relations and goodwill. No one has to like another's personality – but are we so ignorant and negatively filtered that we cannot see beyond to antoher's good works – that we might not perhaps consider giving public service a try ourselves, providing something good – leaving something good – in our names.

    Sarah Palin learned this & is doing quite well for herself now. Even though many of us will never ever watch these channels again, I am sure the additional viewers or should I say voyeurs, they will attract somehow is worth it to the executives who made this decision. If this person of no consequence is worth a million dollars an episode then I have no respect anymore for The Discovery Channel. For Sarah & this network "show me the money" should be their theme song. And how disappointing there are so many people willing to throw their hard earned money in their direction. I'm sure the state of Alaska & conservation groups would love to have even one episode of her paycheck to do something of significance for Alaska.

    Still, look, if you think you should criticize this interesting and compelling personage, Ms Palin, that is, based on her career path or intelligence, I am just wondering how many of you are actually current or former or, even, future Governors of a State. I am suspectng the answer is none. So, you can put a cork in the "I'm smarter than Sarah Palin b.s."

    She didn't get elected, she almost assuredly never will be President of the United States, so you can stop hating her for having the "audacity of hope" that she would one day amount to something far beyond her wildest dreams. But, I guess, in your view, the only ones allowed to aspire for anything are either victims of this society or guys like Rod Blagoyevich. You don't seem very even handed or even throughtful.

    No need for any real skill set, education or talent. All she has to do is get the news feeds to pick up on whatever she's doing and voila! More attention, and consequently, more money. Armed with a contract from the TLC folks, she's now tapping into the money generated by the entertainment industry.

    She quit her job as governor – too much actual work; goes to rallys and tea parties, just to help stir up trouble; and now will be gathering in a hefty paycheck for smiling at a camera and chatting about living in Alaska.

    I love how women are so determined to try and tear down attractive, successful women out of jealousy.

    Keep up the good fight, sweetheart 😉

    This is exactly where Sarah Palin belongs, in the entertainment section of the news along with Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.

    Just what is the Discovery Channel and the TLC network think they're doing? This woman has turned out to be the most divisive politico we've had in years and to give her another "outlet" is simply ludicrous! Just to start with, she didn't even finish her 1st and only term as governor leaving those who she mislead in Alaska to support her either scratching their heads in dismay or just furious at her for running away. If this woman is going to be the focal point or anchor of such a program, you can count on me and others simply not watching TLC or the Discovery Channel!

Why dont you tree hugging liberal dems figure out why the wonderful president and his lackies have put in option for them not to have to be on the very health plan they are fighting to pass, When Obama was asked about it he said, "I'm the president so I'll wont have an issue with healthcare myself"!! Unreal....Oh yea, let's blame Bush for that too after all Bush is the cause of everything thing wrong

  798. Palin is GREAT

    Robert Dayton:
    Great post and so very true. It's like when the hollywood rags show actresses with and without makeup. Well, I don't want to see my date's face on the pillow cover; so I don't date homely dogs. These NOW women, who have hairy armpits and legs are those that hate her guts. The men that hate Palin are under-endowed pacifists that have to try to please their women in ways that they can't reach. Or possibly please their men. We all know the types that hate Palin, self-sufficiency, a hard days work, honesty, and how to protect your family. These were the types that snuck into America after we tamed the West.

    Interesting that she is worth 1 million an episode. I think we will see a lot more politicians getting their own 'reality' shows in order to circumvent the rules regaring political contributions.

    I am a fan of TLC but would never watch any show with Sarah Palin in it. She resigned as Governor of the State of Alaska and is now profiting from it – shame on her.

    Don't you know that attacks only make Sarah Palin stronger!! The more you attack her, the more folks turn to her. People are wondering, why do they hate her so much? I am sure you all have your laundry lists. Most interesting is her popularity.

    The more exposure she gets, the more she reveals herself to be an extremist, a fake, and glutton for attention (I was going to call her a media whore, but I wouldn't want her PC police coming after me). So I say, let's give her a show on every channel until there's not a single person left in this country who likes her!

    Seriously, she self-identifies as a moron by doing these things. I much prefer to be able to readily identify them than be duped by someone posing to know what they're talking about. I wouldn't worry about a resurgence of Sarah Palin. I guess what I'm getting at is this: Sarah Palin will have a TLC show about what?

    Sarah Palen is a brainless opportunist. If she didn't have a script (or
    probably a ghost writer), I doubt if shecould form a complete sentence.
    If she thought so much of Alaska to tout the beautiful State, why did she quit the governorship? Alaskan residents should be affronted.

    For Heaven's sake you can't be serious! I've always liked TLC but if they give this show to Palin you've lost me for good. Full stop. I have an idea. By all means do the show because Alaska is absolutely stunning but do so sans Palin. Find someone who is "worthy" of the position. And stop calling her Governor!
    You're right. I'm so glad Obama won. Can you imagine this lunatic in the WH....

    Ever since the addition of Deadliest Catch and the like (read that new ghost show) , Discovery programming has been going down hill.

    What happened to all the nature shows?? Now its just ghosts,and reality shows about nothing .

    I thought Discovery would have the right mind to NOT even consider Palin.She doesn't even consider wildlife (ie kills animals) and doesn't even have the right mind to preserve the beautiful Alaskan landscape. She is the anti-thesis of what Discovery Channel is about.

    What is this world coming to?? She is the most ignorant, dumbest politician ever surpassing Bush.

    Even as a Mythbusters fanatic , I vow to not watch any Discovery Programing from now on.

  816. Palin is GREAT

    I love it, another $8m to add to her $2.5m in book sales. Remember you liberals, CNN/MSNBC/HLN combined has less viewers than the Cartoon Network. It's always the 200 people who always post negative comments about her. Well, millions of Americans lover her and the Discovery Channel knows this all too well. A beautiful lady, a mother of a US soldier, a former Council member, a former Mayor, a Committe Chairperson for the Oil and Gas Commission in Alaska, a former Govenor, a US Vice-Prestidential candidate, and now a very rich woman because of her own efforts and not government hand-outs. You liberals are foaming at the mouths with envy and jealousy of her. I love it and and can't wait to watch the show. For every one of you tha won't watch it, there will be 1 million who will.

    The learning channel should do a story on personality disorders with the footage from this. Sarah is fascinating in her ability to be so mentally dysfunctional and still be seen as successful in spite of all her failures. They should be doing a story about the science behind h
