'Sarah Palin's Alaska' gets premiere date
Between her daughter Bristol’s on-again, off-again engagement to Levi Johnston and sharing her political view with the masses, it seems Sarah Palin and her family are never far from a press camera's lens.
But if you think you already see plenty of Palin, get ready for November 14, when “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” will premiere on TLC, according to THR.
TLC President Eileen O’Neill said that at the Television Critics Association press tour that the show is going “extremely well.” She added that “it’s become clear that it takes a special individual to thrive in Alaska.”
It seems Kate Gosselin also fits into that “special” category, as she will reportedly appear on the show with all 8 of her kids for a camping session.
The program will also display Palin’s salmon-fishing and glacier-hiking skills.

Why ask for a comment, then not print it? Because I said true things about Palin! But you guys print all the racist hatred stuff said about Obama!
EXCLUSIVE: New Animated Sarah Palin Show Preview!!! Check it out:
Sarah Palin is a pure idiot and a quitter! But she knows like many white Republicans that many white voters HEAR IT! BELIEVE IT! and REPEAT IT! They will drink the koolaid! And don't investigate past the information that racist and or stupid people feed them! The shameful result is white Republican have given the country. Richard Nixon ( a crook) resign in disgrace....Ronald Reagan suffer from Alzheimer and was a do nothing President that just wave and grin! Bush (1)..(a liar) no new taxes then raise taxes! Then the worst Republican President and the worst President of all times. President G.W. Bush! This idiot started a war in Iraq for NOTHING after finding out there where no WOMD ( Weapon of Mass Destruction)! Causing American troop death of over 4,300 plus for NOTHING! Then he started another war and didn't pay for it (Afghan War)! The idiot took a surplus and turn it into debt! He also made so many country hate American under Bush 9/11 happen because his administration took their eyes off security! The Bush tax cuts for the rich did NOTHING for the country but bring the country DOWN! President Obama needs to vote that mess away! Unemployment TODAY is a direct result of Republican control and the dumbest President in America's history! G.W. Bush and D. Cheney are the worst thing to happen to America. Sarah Palin would be worst! This is a proven idiot just like BUSH/CHENEY!! Republicans today are the party of the rich and the un American! Republican are voting NO NO NO against America recovery and President Obama! They could careless about Americans or America they care about power and the rich! Sarah Palin has the nerve to criticizing President Obama when she quit her job and fail to make it to the White House THANK GOD!
Yeah, how's that science-y, learn-y thing workin' out for ya, America? TLC has now officially become The Loser Channel. Of course, it's not really their fault - they, and the Science Channel, both started with good aims, but the American public simply can't abide learning and science. 'S okay; we can sit our our fat rears eating pork rinds and drinking Big Gulps, watching Sarah on the tube and watching the developing world pass us by in science and math. 'S all good, right?
Every Alaskan I talk to wishes Sarah would get out of Alaska and stop using the state as her profiteering bi-line. She is a poorly educated narrow minded quitter. I have stopped watching any channel that gives her a platform.
What's next–the Housewives of Wasilla? Starring all the Palin Family? Kate Gosselin had every right to get upset with Palin. $arah tried to pick her brains about how to get money for being on the talk shows, to get on other TV shows, etc. and Kate realized that she was being used. The only reason that Palin had her Dad and her brother there was to give them some exposure so they could also get on the gravy train. Like Sarah's Dad went and recommended that the people of Idaho should vote for the candidate that he recommended–why would he know more about who to vote for than the people who actually live in Idaho? (Those Idaho voters showed him a thing or two!) Kate is no dummy–so her family gets a bucket for going to the bathroom and Palin and her staff get actual toilets! Kate's family gets a ice chest with snackables and Palin and staff get hot food–hotdogs and hamburgers. SARAH Palin thinks she is a DIVA and celebrity and treated Kate's family like sh*it. Not someone who has earned by respect.
Maybe someone will come along and shoot her from a helipcopter like the moose that she is.
Lets see her melon patch on network tv
For the love of god enough already ! She is an embarrassment! period!!!
Sarah Palin-what a joke? No way I would watch this show or support the advertisers who do.
Yes I live in Wasilla, Alaska. Yes, about 1/4 mile from Sarahs old High School. Yes, Sarah was my Mayor. And my Governor. And, she did pretty well in both of those positions. However, since she started pandering to the extreme right wing of the Republican Party, she's lost her appeal. Way to sell yourself out, Sarah. I won't be watching, TYVM. And thanks for making everyone in the country think Wasilla is full of extreme right wing wackos. Let me assure you, this is not the case.
There's another show I won't watch.
I can't belive how many people are this jealous over this women she speaks her mind dose what she feels is right we really need more politcians like her we have too many people in washton who have no idea what the real world is and from the sounds of the comments a lot more people are as dumb as the politcians we have know she might not make a good president but we need a lot more people like her to get our country back to much money and brains in our goverment AND NO COMMON SENSE
Jealous? Come again? I'm jealous? (Are you speaking to me? Or the funny lady with glasses whose picture graces this article? Someone else?)
"we need a lot more people like her to get our country back to much money and brains in our goverment AND NO COMMON SENSE" So, you are saying she could take our country back to being much money? No, wait, to much brains in goverment? Are you against brains, or against money? Or correct spelling of government? You've got no commons sense, that's for sure.
Well, prehaps if you were smart enough to use proper spelling and grammer then you would also be smart enough to understand why she is an idiot.
Eh? Must have been written by a machine. Or possibly by Ms. Palin?
I'm just grateful for Sarah focusing so much negative attention on Alaska - Makes us Mainers look positively sophisticated.
You are right, with Sarah Palin in our government, we would have NO common sense
Wow! I guess all you anti-Palin folks deserve every bit of Obomination that has happened and all thats still to come. You all believe in slick politicians, you deserve what you get. Just too bad you bring down the good folks with sense and honesty. Go ahead! celebrate the end of freedom. Elect more Obominations !!
If you think Sarah has sense and honesty, then you are a thoroughly deluded idiot.
Wake up pilgrims, "Sorry" $arah....the great "refudiater" is busy with her book$ , that $arah doesn't write and her TV $how about Alaska . $he quit being governor there to make some $ with all the the $peeches she makes for birther$, tea bagger$, NRAer$, et al. Fox is grooming $arah to run for the presidecy ( C R A Z Y ! ! ! ) as evidenced with all HER p.r. stuff, soft interviews, and her endless simple statements i.e., "drill, baby, drill!" instead of insight and intellect. But the Palin parade will cease when push comes to shove and she wiill eventually face major media journalists with critical questions re: her knowledge of politics, the military, immigration, drug policies, the UN, the mideast, and just exactly where Africa is. That's when the rubber hits the road and Sarah's ineptness in the ability to be a world leader becomes painfully, terribly, dangerously obvious.
Then the question should be asked: DO YOU WANT SARAH PALIN TO BE THE PERSON WHO DECIDES TO SEND AMERICA TO WAR AND/OR PUSH THAT BUTTON WHICH.........
Hey, don't dump the NRA in with those other nutjobs!
Just because she owns guns doesnt mean we blindly support her (in fact, some wackjob tried to pass out teabagger/Palin literature at our last local meet at the gun range and was asked to leave and not come back!).
Just because some tin-foil hat "birther" types happen to also belong to the NRA doesnt mean the group is brain-dead morons- I believe you would find that the vast majority think she's just another loud-mouthed idiot (if they think of her at all.)
About time we had a bukkake show on TV.
There's no way I would watch this program. Palin's presence on this show smacks of political favoritism or support of her views. Shame, shame, shame.
I have an idea for the show. Point the transmitters satellite dish to an empty patch of sky where there is nothing to receive the signal.
I certainly won't be watching it.
PeteP... Thanks for posting that video of Katie and Sarah. It brings back into focus just what a moron she is. God help the US if this woman is ever elevated to a national decision making role
You're welcome. You know, while the impressions from Tina Fey are funny as hell, nothing really beats seeing the real woman in action (that is, if you actually have a brain). I thought her resignation speech was a classic, too! What is even funnier than that is that all her mindless followers cannot see the idiocy! It's just amazing...
Yal........right! Can anyone say clueless? I can't believe people like this woman-it’s beyond me!
YECCCCCH! I cannot think of anything more sickening.
I've watched and enjoyed some of TLC's programming over the past several TV seasons. But if TLC airs this Palin-centered show and provides her a stage for her dim-witted, lowbrow political rhetoric, I will boycott the network indefinitely and will encourage everyone I know to do the same. Thank you.
It's all John McCain's fault.....she's a true Dolt.
John and Kate Plus Eight Plus the Palins makes...
Oh, geez, I can't count that high.
I think Palin has nice boobies. Yeap....nice conservative Christian boobies. TLC knows what their doing and who their
If you really find fault with the idea of Palin having a tv show, hit them where it hurts...boycott TLC and their sponsors. If they feel it financially, they won't keep her around long. God save us if they do.
I'm sure she'll follow the Rush Limbaugh model. No studio audience, so no pesky "other ideas" or dissent is allowed. Facist TV, here we come.
Really, the whole thing is simply a ploy to get around campaign finance laws... If they say they "hired" her, they can massively overpay her and voila! suddenly she has the money in her account to "fund her own campaign".
It's just a variation on the "book sales and talk" type of loophole that has been lining the pockets of politicians for years- (where a person, group or company buys tens of thousands of copies of a book written by a politician-just to turn around and throw them in the dumpster.)
All you dusgunted people who have a hate for Sarah Palin should try and accomplish your goalls in life and make something out of yourself instead of being jealous of someone that already has. You will never become a millionaire like Sarah because you have to use your brains to do that and from what I am reading you people lack them. Sarah Palin can read Obama like a book without the cover. Its people like you that voted him in office, that's why this country is going downhill. Get a grip and wake up.
– @ Mariann Pepitone –
Since you seem compelled to talk about money, allow me to burst your bubble. I certainly want to.
I started my own business 10 years ago. As a result, I enjoy knowing that I've earned over $3,200,000 during 2009. Not my company revenue, my salary. I don't think about it often because I'm not obsessed with it and I rarely talk about it because it's no ones business. My performance everyday dictates if my company will continue to be a success.
People hate Sarah Palin because she is a genuine moron, not because she's been a success. She's believes in creationism – and that alone is enough to steer me away.
You know what really hurts about earning 3.2 million dollars? Taxes. I paid more in taxes last year than most people earn in ten years.
Somewhere along the line The Learning Channel lost its focus on LEARNING. I stopped watching years ago, and this certainly won't draw me back.
"Truth", you're an idiot. Palin is the one that started the 150$ bounty for wolf legs. If you don't know what you're talking about, then stop talking!
I wouldn't watch this piece of garbage show if someone paid me to do it. Discovery has really hit a new low.
Time to put the old parental lock on The Learning Channel. Would not want to accidentally get a glimpse of this awful woman while channel surfing.
i knew discovery would air this.. cause they own part of Oprahs OWN network..they will give any one a show or network..sarah and oprah proove that
I did not think reality TV could get worse. Silly me.
since tlc is gonna air this idiot.. i will block all discovery owned networks from my cable.
I'm a regular viewer of many TLC programs, but I will have to change that now that I know Sarah Palin will be a part of their line-up. Most reality programing is really annoying. I do not watch Kate Plus 8. I do like "I didn't know I was Pregnant" and a couple of their other shows. But adding Sarah Palin to their line-up has gone to far for me. I will not try to watch other programs on TLC if I have to see hundred a commercials for "Sarah Palin's Alaska" during every single commercial break. TLC is one of those annoying channels that advertises their own programs to the point of nausea. I usually can press the mute button until I get back to the show I'm watching but even pressing the mute button on Sarah Palin won't cut it. Good riddance TLC!
I totally agree with you Lynn. I don't care for reality shows, many of them are scripted, so it really isn't 'real'. But putting Palin in the line up........just makes it all seem even worse.
Sarah Palin's typical to-do list:
1. Look good.
2. Bash President Obama.
3. Call accountant, ask question, "how much did I earn yesterday?"
4. Have a glass of wine.
Life is like a box of chalklates for this delusional idiot. It will be over quickly like her governorship.
"And over here Kate, is the Alaskan Wildlife Repuge."
Double checked on that. TLC is owned by Discovery, the people that bring you Animal Planet, among other things. Apparently they now promote the same people who want to kill those animals for sport, fun and profit, and headlines. Like keeping polar bears off the endangered species list. http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/green/greenblog/2008/08/sarah_palin_on_energy_and_the.html
I know- next they can do a show about what good guys and exemplary corporate citizens BP and Exxon are for providing jobs after destroying everyplace they touch, bringing in crews to pretend to clean them up later, AFTER wiping out all the wildlife, local fishing industries, tourism, etc.
What, you mean that's a bad idea? What's good for BU$INE$$ isn't good for AMERICA???
"I am shocked, SHOCKED that there's gambling going on here."
"Here are your winning, m'sieu."
Great comment RLG !
No, I will not watch the show. What a rip-off for Alaskans! Another trip to the bank for Palin.
Will they get some good footage of this poster child for the trailer trash morons shooting wolves with a high powered rifle from the safety of her helicopter? Or giving cushy contracts to oil companies to pollute what was once pristine wilderness to get more campaign contributions and a job for her husband, ex- BP pencil pusher Toad? "Drill, baby, drill."
THAT'S Sarah Palin's Alaska.
More "must- miss" TV. Boycotting the Discovery channel now.
Good for her, she is using every opportunity to make money, this is her chance, Horrrrrey for her :).
Abigail, unfortunately intelligent television is long gone (the continual dumbing-down of American) 🙁
Palin having her own t.v. show is absurd. This family epitomizes the word "trash" and they really should go away. Rather than awarding people like her and other ludicrous people television shows, media should ignore them and make intelligent programs. If we had intelligent programs on television I just might reconsider getting cablevision again. As it is, she is just another reason why I am glad I cancelled it in the first place.
NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please NO more on Palin and her family!!!!! OMG! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I am so sick of Palin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE THE SHOW IS A BIG FLOP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So TLC has gone from a channel that was for supporting the environment and ""Wild Life"" to the opposite side. If the show stays..........I will never watch TLC again..........I hope that goes for many Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And there were some others commenting about Liberals commenting on this. Well keep on thinking it is Liberals.........cause it isn't just Liberals that can't stand Palin. I am not a Liberal ......I am a Republican!!!
Thank you, Cheryl. I am a Democrat, but if I were a Republican I would not be able to stomach this woman!
The Palin's are America's premier White Trash Family. From their daughters on/off engagement to Levi Johnston, which is obviously her and his inability to manage basic tenaments of any relationship, to Sarah's Third Wave Pentacostal back ground, YIKES! These people don't deserve the energy it took to even write this, but it just goes to show America loves a train wreck. I just wish they wouldn't crash it into the government.
Good comment Matt!
I will say one thing. There is not much truth in what you post. I believe you might actually be more delusional than she is. You betcha.
another brainless twit with a reality show, along with Gosselin, the Duggars (who would welcome a 20th child)...TLC have some decent programming on.....
maybe Palin's next gig will be Dancing With the Stars – you betcha
perfect.now i know when to cancel cable by.
And incidentally–ms palin hardly "thrives" here in Alaska.Shame on discovery channel –considering the wealth of viable deserving candidates they could have chosen from.
I like your comment.
Great. Yet another brainless twit on TV wasting good oxygen.
TLC, WHAT the HELL are you thinking?!!!
Sarah, how can we miss you if you won't go away??
She needs to be cut up like a pig.
I wish she was our Queen. She is such a beautiful, kind and wonderful person. I think
liberal women are foul stinking reeking pieces of vile defication.
I'll gladly pay to have you sterilized.
Any you gentle person, are a moron. At least try to spell words correctly if you are going to post them for all the world to see.
Honey........YOU'RE SICK!!! And for your information......it's not just the Liberals that can't stand Palin........where have you been? My daughters and I are Republicans and we don't like Palin!!!
This is final proof that the American Empire is crashing down. This is embarrassing for her and for the the country. She has become a caricature.
I am afraid you are right about the American Empire crashing down........it started the downward spiral when Bush was elected and when Palin was 'discovered' it just got worse.
Ep1. Sarah teaches Kate and the plus 8 Alaskan values and the joys of teenage parenthood.
Ep2. Sarah shows Octomom how to stalk and bring down a Moose and quarter it in record time.
Ep3. (Destined to be fan favorite) Sarah and diaper astronaut lady go helicopterin' and shootin' big bad woofs
Ep4. Sarah delivers heartfelt speech about why she is quitting the show because she is not taking her eye off the ball
Gag Reel: Sarah actually tries to write a book herself about her experiences with the resulting high comedic effect
You libs, how sad. So quick to forget how Obama threw us ALL under the bus with his out of control spending and lies.
You repugs, how sad. So quick to forget how BUSH threw us ALL under the bus with his out of control spending and lies. Now go back like a nice little idiot and get more talking points from Palin, Hannity, and Limbaugh. They will happily tell you what to think.
What does Obama have to do with this? These numbskulls sure have a one-track mind.
crm041066 ......... what do you mean it started with Obama telling lies and over spending? We weren't in debt when Bush was first elected, but after 8 years in office we were in DEBT and talk about lies.........he got us into a war in Iraq on LIES! Obama is not a god, he is not a wizard, it will take more than a miracle to clean up the crap Bush has created and it will take more years than Obama has left in office to get this country back on track. And I wish Republicans would stop, STOP! blaming Liberals for negative things said about Palin, Bush and other GOP. It is everyone, Liberals, Democrats, Progressive, Independents AND Republicans that don't have many good things to say about Palin, Bush and the others. I know...........I am a damn Republican and I am tired of people being elected to office that don't work for the best interest of the AVERAGE American. I am sick of all of the elected officals that work for the best interest of BIG Corporations, Wall Street, and the Banks.
In the fifties TV was called the boob tube.... with todays so called reality TV – will it be called Failing Palin nor Palin failing? Guess it's time to unplug and open up a good book.
Look at her eyes. They are red, like stoned red. Yeah baby, you go Sarah. We love ya hon..
I wanna see her you know what. I'll bet its a doozy.
Can't hide the eye thing. You're right. They're stoned red.
dude, enough with these tlc shows featuring no talent hacks...
If I ever feel the need to vomit I will be sure to watch, otherwise.......I will avoid this show as well as the channel like the plague that it is.
Several people writing comments here are concerned that Sarah Palin might shoot a wolf...while our nation is murdering innocent babies, which Sarah abhors. The real atrocity and shame is that these people have their priorities so mixed up.
I really doubt that Sarah abhors innocent babies...
Ladies and gentlemen, Linda's logic has left the building!!
That's right, Pete...it's the murdering of innocent babies she abhors.
I am just happy in the thought that she does not abhor murdering guilty babies
Yeah, abortion is a terrible thing. Just imagine if Adolf Hitler's mother had an abortion. Do I need to name thousands of other names, more likely millions of other names to make the point? We need, and I am calling for, an additional ten million abortions every day in the United States. The rest of the world needs to outdo us on that number.
I agree, George. Abortion is a terrible thing.
Is she going to write her script on her hands?
Many years ago Newton Minnow said TV was a "vast wastland". It hasn't changed a bit.
Sarah Palins Alaska? Is this the same state she quit? With Kate ?......Next thing we know they will put on a show about some "Jersey wanna-be" and their friends, and people will watch and call it ...entertanment...oh yeah..never mind
Alaskans are starting to get the picture. It's not Palin's Alaska at all.
What other great new shows does TLC have in store for us? How about "BP's Gulf of Mexico"?
That show already airs daily on every 24 hour news channel in the country
Sarah Palin's Alaska?! The state is HERS now?! Will this version of Alaska be riddled with pipelines and oil-wells? or does she just want us to see the state before all of the aforementioned? Will Sarah Palin actually speak during this show? I would tune-in, at-least once, to ridicule her even further. Does anyone-else just want to punch this woman in the face?
ME ! AND EVERYONE I KNOW !
A show for the right nut nutjob
Another vindication for dumping television a year ago. I get the programs that I WANT to watch from the internet. Now, if I could just figure out how to get this dumb broad off the web, life would be perfect.
I agree wholeheartedly that it would be a dream come true to get this woman off the web! How does her husband tolerate all the dumb things she does, or is he totally brainless!
Oh hooray. The real life Forrest Gump gets her own show. What a dream come true.
Palin should stay with salmon fishing and glacial hiking and away from sniping at those in government she regards as being profligate with tax money. After all, due to her mayoral gambits she left her town deeply in debt.
We had a dog that suffered from heat stroke when I was small. Watching that dog suffer was both mesmerizing and sad. This woman reminds me of that dog.
What a joke..but it doesn't surprise me. Choosing Kate Goslin is no surprise. Sarah needs advice on reality shows..and she needs to get it from a nobody like herself. Sarah wants to market herself and her family into show business, who better than Kate Goslin to show her the ropes. Maybe Sarah wants to appear on dancing with the stars. Lets see, since she "quit" as governor of Alaska, she wants to tell us all about wildlife in Alaska....she can make more money that way.
She has written two books.....or lets just say someone else wrote the books and she is getting credit for it. How do I know? Because she wouldn't have the smarts to write one on her own...she would use terms like "oh shucks" or "you betcha" throughout the book....that would not make for a good read. Her daughter has had her "acting" debut....which looked more like a doe in the headlights reading probably while mommy held up her palm so she could read her lines. Please....hide these people already.!
I'm not sure I'd want her for my President, but I think she has drive, determination and a good sense of humor which is in seriously short supply in politics these days. It'll be a very interesting show and a winner for TLC, I'm sure.
Palin wouldn't be so bad – if she would stay of of politics and out of the national conscious. We have McCain to blame for her. As for the show, I would rather be at the dentist than watch.
I hope the Wasilla Hillbilly includes the Octomom in her show. The more media ho's the better, right?
I have cancelled Discovery/Animal Planet......they have lost their way.
I have just signed up for it.
Do we get to see all the maimed wolf pups she blasted too? She's so proud of herself; what a ditz. I can shoot a gun too, big freaking deal. I'm embarrassed as a woman that this idiot thinks she represents us; she a fringe loon and nothing more. Wants to set us back to the stone age. Stay home and take care of your own spawn, Sarah, they are the only ones missing you, we don't get a chance to thanks to McCain's senile judgment. You haven't done a great job on the home front so quit preaching values to everyone else.
Just another desperate show for attention, since people are getting tired of her in the political theater.
TLC = Totally Lame Crap
She is getting very close to the playboy spread.
if by 'spread' you mean lots of loose, wrinkly skin. oh wait, this is playboy we're talking about...pioneers of the airbrushed, flawless, fake t1t bimbo...
i guess you're right after all...
This is a good thing, because once America sees "reality-TV-scripted-semi-genuine-bubble-brained-narcicist-Sarah-Palin" standing shoulder to shoulder with Kate Gosslein, not even the radical right will be able to stomach voting for her for President. Bye-bye White House, hello Celebrity Boxing. Brilliant career move, Sarah. No doubt you'll be rich, but you'll never be taken seriously again. Although, you never deserved to be taken seriously in the first place.
Let me guest Joe. You voted for that Liar in the WH, right.
I feel your pain.
I can feel the pain for everybody here that voted for that phony that calls himself a POTUS.
Obama as POTUS will go down in history as one of the biggest jokes every played on the American people by the corrupt MSM.
I feel your pain.
Sarah Palin feels your pain all the way out there in Alaska.
Would someone please help Truth? She is out of touch with reality. And please tell her that there is no pipeline!
she's opened her fat, troll mouth so often i can't even beat off to her anymore.
Someone please explain the attraction a gun-toting moose-eating loudmouth with all the elegance and sofistication of an enraged baboon at a tea party (get it, tea party) to the American public? Seriously there's no one more interesting for you to watch? Not even a pet rock?
Ever slowed down to watch a car accident ?
Same principle here.
Oh Good KG and SP in same spot at once-2 nobodys that would sell their soul (or chilrden) for the spotlight and some cash. These women mke me sick.Obvoiusly Bristol needs major therapy..oh gee i wonder And who is taking card of SP's retarded baby. The one that SP is never home to see???

First of all, I can't believe that out of EVERYONE who has posted comments, there isn't ANYONE else that bothered to call out this insensitive and crude man for saying what he did about Sarah's son. I don't care WHAT your political or personal opinion is of the woman.. you do NOT stoop to such lows as to call a child "retarded" when, in fact, he has down's syndrome. If you knew what you were speaking of, you would know there is a TREMENDOUS difference. And, for one who has quite the spelling errors in his post, I wouldn't be so quick to speak to the intellect of others. Be slow to cast stones, my friend... And Everyone else.. shame on you as bystanders who just let this STAND!!!
THE MINDLESS WATCHING THE MINDLESS
SO THEY CAN FINALLY KNOW WHAT TO THINK
Our country is quickly becoming famous for its ridiculous politicians, and Palin is by far the most ridiculous. A pox on John McCain for removing this walnut-headed lunatic from obscurity and giving the religious right a new barbie doll to play with.
I get it, that's what this has ALL been about – Sarah Palin getting a reality TV show! I always thought she was scripted.
What's the name of this episode? How to Exploit Your Kids For Fame and Fortune? How Not to Parent? When Bad Moms Go Wild?
Yeah, put the lipstick on the Moose, I cain't wait!!!
Please,enough of the Palin family. this woman claims to have written her 2 book and we all know thats a lie,now this joke of a tv show.As trashy as Levi Johnson is,he still has more class then the Palins.If the teaparty had a brain,they would be in fear every time she opened her mouth.
Why the hate? You sound like trash.
I wonder what Sarah would look like without all that mascara,... Sorta reminds me of Tammy Faye Baker
Actually, I very much enjoy seeing Sarah on t.v., unless she begins talking, then that ruins everything!
Just proves any ditz can be on TV. I hope they give her cue cards so she won't have to use her palms again.
Alaska is for losers. Ask anyone in the military who gets "demoted" there. Sure it has some qualities but being up there is like being in another world. It's also the biggest welfare state in this country by far where one can grab a rifle and shoot a dumb moose while collecting the oil money check once you get back home. And it's freaking COLD.
I worked for a company based out of Fairbanks, had an ex-wife who lived up there, have relatives who live there and have visited a couple of times. I'd rather be in Seattle, a city with strong ties to Alaska, with plenty of outdoor activities, separation somewhat from the rest of the world, no god awful heatwaves and rain instead of snow (or ice fog as they call it in Fairbanks).
Been to Wasilla Sarah! It's nothing to crow about.
I was probably a bit harsh. Anchorage is a nice town and I have a couple of friends who live there that love it. They've been there for years and don't desire to leave. Juneau is wet but a buddy of mine makes a killing off the tour ships that arrive every summer from Seattle. I still have no idea how folks up in the Fairbanks area do it. The whole state is cold but damn Fairbanks is friigid in winter. 30-40 below, and those ain't record temps, that is normal in January. Kind of dark too..
Just visited a few times and have family there too. Still don't really like Palin.
Mark, your civilized follow-up was very thoughtful, and much appreciated.
Do all you angry people just love hating a fellow human being? Or, is it ignorance? The liberal media got you dumbed down? Drunk?
You elected the troll. Live with that decision as she dumped your asses before she got the job done.
Just like all you Tea Baggers love on Obama??? Fox News is clearly the more educated choice as most of its viewership is comprised of people who believe the earth is 6000 years old. Let me know how the klan rally is.
Drunk! In Wasilla! Closing time is many hours away and it's only Friday niight no less. Hell there's always a good time to be found on the planet and Wasilla has its share of buds and babes. 4 AM , when the only way to be leaving is when you're heaving, is another story story. Doing some babe with puke on her lips is..Wasilla.
Don't over generalize....just can't stand this particular airhead. Sorry, but she's the intolerant "hater". She's uneducated and ignorant and that voice is finger nails on a chalk board. Alaska, please take her back.
Whatever, She resigned and did not quit. Quitters don't hung around for a month and make sure the transfer of power is done right. Not a problem with the transfer of power. Unheard of. Everything Sarah Palin campaigned on she got done in 2 years as the governor of Alaska. The last thing was the gas pipeline and once that was set in motion it was time for Sarah Palin to turn over Alaska to Lt Gov Purnell. She got more stuff done for ALaska then most governors get done in 8 years. Stop listening to the lying corrupt Obama MSM and do your own research.
From Merriam-Webster's dictionary:
1 : to give up one's office or position : quit
Truth, you are indeed a blind idiot!
The Wasilla Hillbillies! Can't wait.
The show will start at 8pm and is scheduled for one hour, but will likely be cut short when Palin quits the show at 8:30.
They're going to play the episodes again and again to captured enemy agents and terrorists in their cells to break them down and force them to reveal what they know. "Tell us everything you know about Al-Qaeda or you get the entire season of the Palin show again!" – "OK, OK... This is the location of Osama Bin Laden's hideout..."
Imagine the skill and bravery needed to trackdown and shoot a moose. One of the slowest, dummest herbivores.
We are not even in each others food chain.
I see the facelift scar is still visable.
Thanks, CNN! The Entertainment Section is where all Palin sound bytes belong!
I was wondering, Alaska Girl, why did Sarah quit? Is there any thing to do with the construction company that paid for the material for her house... I mean the ice rink?
Will someone please tell TLC and this woman that her 15 minutes are up! Watching paint dry would more entertaining and more insightfull.
Did anyone ever consider that it is not all about the money? That she is also doing the show because she is a proud Alaskan and like all Alaskans, they love sharing the remarkable astonishing beauty and uniqueness of Alaska the Great Land.
That must explain why she quit the governor position. Cuz she just LOVED Alaska so darn much.
Hey, honey, I love you so much; can you sign these divorce papers...?
I can't wait! A creationists view of the wonders of Alaska!
She is laughing all the way to the bank. Good for her! I know that there are two sides to every story, even when cnn doesn't choose to show both. Why do so many people hate the sound of the name Sarah Palin? What has she really done? She has taken advanage of what was thrown in her lap. She quit as governor for her own reasons, but it was best for Alaska since the media is now for the most part gone from here. Those that choose to follow her doings do so because they either like or hate her. Most of either don't know her at all. Like any star hollywood or political she is playing the game and at the monent winning. Winning mostly because of the negative like everyone that has written here, but in part because she has learned to play the game. Could you guys do that? If so would you? Of course you would.
What she has done is she polluted the airways with her stupid drivel.
CNN is a lot more objective than any of the Conservative News Shows. Fox News is soooooo "impartial" to Sarah Palin that they have her as a paid commentator on their Network. Sarah Palin is successful because half of this country are old school, undereducated people that believe in the vile invective that she spews. She appeals to the lowest common denominator, that alone is why she is "successful". I think you will find that most people on this board however would not stoop to the tactics of Palin in order to make money. I ,for one, would not lie to a bunch of old people and say our president wants to kill them, I wouldn't use my children as political pawns, I wouldn't quit a job before it's finished, I wouldn't do a lot of things Palin does but I guess I measure success a little different.
Sarah Palin is successfull because she is honest and fights back for what is right. The Corrupt Obama Loving MSM is used to attacking and lying about people and cauing them to retreat and never be heard of again.
Sarah Palin dishes it right back into their lying faces.
Sarah Palin calls the Obama Corrupt MSM out for what they are a bunch of liars.
The Corrupt Obama Loving MSM has never seen or faced the likes of someone like Sarah Palin.
I am loving this woman more and more everyday.
She reminds me of my mother. Overbearing, controlling and domineering. Mom doesn't see the grandkids anymore and Levi should just give up his and get out of that family. Supporting this freak is like backing a monster. No matter what her views I can't stand her.
I think that all liberals and coservatives can agree: Sara Palin is a clown.
But that's an insult to clowns everywhere!
Hey! I am a clown and I resent that!
Sarah Palin survival skills? She has never had to fight to eat or have shelter! She is rich off the fools who send her money. We all know it is cold up there, folks, and we do not need Palin to "inform" us of that. Anyone who reads probably knows more detail about Alaska than Palin does. Alll this is is another trip to the bank for her.
What idiot out there would watch this garbage? TLC has really sunk to an all time LOW.
ME and all my family and friends. HeHeHeHe
I read on another site that if you go to wowurl.com/11bma you will see an accounting of what went on with what was supposed to be a two-day camping trip. They arrived at the camp site and Kate threw a fit because she was going to have to sleep in a tent. All he$$ broke loose when Kate was presented with a bucket with a toilet seat for a cover. Kate screamed: "What the hell am I supposed to do with this?" She further said that the camp was dirty and her kids couldn't stay there in the "dirt". So, they set Kate up in alternative accommodations with her kids in a cabin that had a bathroom and electric. When dinner time rolled around, Kate opened the cooler for her and it consisted of Lunchables. She further declared that she couldn't feed her kids that "crap". It appears that Palin and her group were barbecuing hot dogs and hamburgers. The "camp out" lasted only one night rather than two.
So, I can't see where Eileen gets the idea that Kate is one of these special resilient people. Kate is a diva biotch whose 15 minutes has long since passed.
P.S. If Kate was so great, why is it that she was the only "star" on DWTS that was not invited to their reunion? No one has anything nice to say about Kate or her family.
Why? Why? Why? are hyou people on television so obsessed with this Sarah Palin woman and now the other one with all the children. These are useless women who do nothing but promote themselves and make money.One couldn't make her marriage work and the other couldn't keep her children from getting pregnant. What kind of role models are they.Couldn't ou find some others like doctors and teachers instead of bimbos like them.Remember Sarah Pa;in kills wolves for no reason other killing.
TV execs are obsessed with confrontation (like Real Housewives, etc.) and the political flavor-of-the-month (Palin). They are not interested in edifying the viewing public, but taking us all down to our lowest common denominators. I don't watch the unreal "reality" shows and I don't plan to watch Palin. I'm sure TLC will have to write every word out for Sarah, who can't speak without writing her notes on her palm. I plan to join those who will boycott TLC as the result of their bonehead decision to have Palin host this show.
Dina I totally agree with you, they are both bad role models for young women. And Anais......GREAT COMMENT !!!
I can't stand even a 20 second sound bite from this woman, there's no way I'd ever sit through an entire half hour or hour of her. Totally nauseating. I think people should "refudiate" her having her own show!!!
I totally agree with you..........I can't even stand to hear her voice.......she is so repulsive!
She is not very bright, but man is she good looking, I will watch this and will vote for her only because of how hot she is. THIS IS MY RIGHT. As a American citizen do not tread on me!
Wow that shows how shallow you really are, and also beauty isnt only on the outside you have to look within. if you think she is good looking there is something seriously wrong with you. I would rather cut my eyes out than to have to look at her and my husband agrees. She is the worst thing on this planet and makes me realize the devils color is red and wow so is the republicans.
Mike, what about her crazy eyes?
Sarah Palin is very intelligent and good looking. A liberal nightmare.
For the pass two years the Obama loving corrupt MSM has tried to destroy this woman. For the pass two years the Obama loving corrupt MSM pushed their liars about this woman at every turn.
Tell me, what has the Obama Loving Corrupt MSM accomplished?
The Obama Loving Corrupt MSM has made Sarah Palin the second most powerful politican in the country. The polls may not reflect fav but when Sarah Palin speaks the majority of the American people listen.
Obama's poll numbers are the prove in the pudding.
When it is all said and done. What do we have before us?
We have a thug that was raised in the Chicago machine.
We have a warrior that was raised in the last frontier.
This democrat woman soon to be a conservative stands with the warrior that was raised in the Last Frontier.
You wouldn't know it if it fell on you (truth, that is)! I thought Sarah Palin was as stupid as they come. I stand corrected, you are clearly far dumber than her!
Aw, Mike, you're such a tease...
Truth, you are either an idiot or you are being sarcarstic. Either way, you're funny!
Another double-standard with gender. She is good looking(I voted for Obama) I am amazed at the hate spewed out from my liberal friends on this blog. I thought we were above this. I voted for Mary Landrieu the when I was first old enough to vote here in Louisiana because I thought she was hot too. It amazes me how women will call us shallow for voting for some woman because she is pretty but 70% of women voters voted for JFK because they thought he was hot. Also, had JFK Jr. had not tragically died in 1999, they would have lined him up to run because the women would have voted in mass for him. Another point: Brad Pitt has flirted with running down here in New Orleans. No feminist has challenged local pundits when they talk about how he would lock up the women's vote. Why is this? Because women know it's true. So stop with your men are shallow already.
You're right .... she is not too bright.
In my student days I ran for university body elections. Friends told me I was losing, but I did not believe it until the results came out. Therein lies the crux of the problem: she doesn't know she cant win, and stumps as if victory is hers. I wont be surprised if "Faith" whispers into her ears that she is the chosen one. Talk about being delusional.
Look at Me! I'm a politician...wait nope, I'm a grizzly bear....ummm nope, now I am an author....no no no, thats not right, I am a quitter. Wait I am ALSO reality tv personality...oh yeah, no...hold on. I got it, I'm a christian who hates people not like me....oh gash no, thats really not me. I'm a seccessionist sympathizer....unless I decide to become an african withc doctor....nah...I think I'll just be a baby maker.
what exactly does this woman want and who does she want me to think she is...this week.
What does she want? MONEY!
FUSP, this is exactly how I feel about this poor excuse of a human.
You may get some comments from her supporters about your spelling..........but I like your comment and it is very funny. *LOL*
I can't wait for the first episode of "The Trailer Park Chronicles."
Not ME !
TLC President Eileen O’Neill said that at the Television Critics Association press tour that the show is going “extremely well.”
Yeah right. How much did Ms. O'Neill pay these so-called critics?
She probably doesn't pay them a dime...............she just LIES
I hope "Sarah Palin's Alaska" will show the massacre of wolves by hunters chasing them down in helicopters. I doubt it, though. I'm sure they don't want us to see that side of alaska! If you have an ounce of decency, boycott this show!!
As it has been mentioned before, there was a boycott and it didn't have any influence on TLC's decision. So my advice......just stop watching TLC.........I did......it's not hard to do.
Palin is not an anchor for Republican ship, its an anchor around Republican neck.
The funny thing is that quite a few Republicans will not see or admit it. Frankly, I love it!
There are too many channels if this hump gets a show.
After leaving her position of Governor of Alaska in order "to better serve her country", Sarah has accomplished nothing other than taking advantage of her pathetic 2 month campaign run for VP to write two ridiculous books about her "incredibly" interesting life (?) and making millions. And, now she is taking us back to "her" Alaska for this stupid show? UGH!!
Come now Priscilla...she did successfully start death panel rumors and scream like an infantile sack of filth about our president being foreign born because, you know, Hawaii is in Russia and she can see it from her outhouse/kitchen/library.
Stop making things up. Sarah Palin has never said anything about the birth of Obama. Tina Fey said you can see Russia from my house and only Tina Fey.
Here is something Sarah Palin has said:
You can see November from my House
Only if you let her.............you are in control of what you watch on television.
GoodBye TLC you have been deleted from all our TV'S. Whoever said you can learn something from every person you meet never met half govenor Palin. It amazes me that so much hatred and ignorance still exists in America,anyone who takes this woman seriously is perpetuating the aforementioned .
Good........You will find you won't miss TLC at all. I don't!
Where's PETA??? I come they are so silent when it comes to Palin. She hunts wolves and moose for sport. Surely that is a good enough reason to be vocal. Come on PETA – begin a protest for this show. Tell me where I can sign up.
Yes, I would sign up too!!!
cool. .now i have a date I can drop TLC, Animal Planet, and the other stations this conglomorate controlls from my viewing.
Yep! And as time goes bye.........you won't miss them at all ! 🙂
Her show will premiere just in time for the mid-term elections. How convenient. I wish she would just go away!!! She and her whole "Jerry Springer" family. Just go away!! I hate you for this John McCain!!!
Her book comes out in November too. I can't stand this woman. I have never said that about anyone in my adult life. I too wish she would go away. Far, far away.
Damn McCain! Any reasonable background check would show that this woman is pretty vacant. Palin isn't really from Alaska, she's from North Idaho, home of the white supremecist. She's "one of us" I keep hearing on occasion. Her degree is from the U of I and her father is from Sandpoint where he went to high school with many of my relatives. You couldn't find a whiter place back in the 1950's. My old man never witnessed a person of color until he went to college. And when things get a little hasseled in a place like that you pack up and move to Alaska! I don't trust anyone with that background.
As for McCain he should've been kicked out of the Navy before he got shot down over Hanoi. The guy crashed numerous times and once flew into a major power line that blew out half of Spain's grid (not kidding, look it up). And people supported this ticket. What a joke.
I totally agree with you. I blame John McCain for the demise of the Republican party. If they could have come up with a neutral VP candidate they would have had my vote but now we will be hearing from that idiot Sarah Palin for years to come and the Democrats will keep winning.
i'm sure theres a plane with your name on it! get on board and head to the EU. they need more like you.
You must be another Republican that can't stand Palin like me. I was going to vote for John McCain until he picked her. Damn!
I don't know why you should hate John McCain. He had the right to choose who he wanted for his VP just like Obama and other presidents. If you voted for Obama then start hating what is going on in this country after he got elected. Hate yourself for making a mistake. Sarah Palin is on the right track so you and the others on this board should stop being evnious of her. If you are they are so smart then when are you going to become a millionaire like she did.
The need an episode with Obama….
The mouse hunter vs the girly man!
Wow! You're clearly an English Major. You must have gotten a good ole Republican funded education through The No Child Left Behind Act. I think you meant Moose Hunter, not Mouse Hunter. I admire Obama a lot more than I do someone who hunts wolves from a helicopter.
Pay attention, now. We've already mentioned that Sarah has never hunted wolves from a helicopter. Stop lying. Oh, wait, you're an Obama supporter, lying is ok in your book.
i smell BROMANCE
The true definition of "Epic Fail"
LOL! I think that TLC is going to find out this is an epic win. Love her or hate her, the woman will draw viewers.
Danielle I hope you are wrong and I hope the show fails. You are right, there are people that love her and people that hate her..........but I just can't watch her, she turns my stomach, honestly, I get really sick.
I can't believe that you would allow this person (I can't even say lady) to have a show, knowing that she offered $150 for every wolf that was killed and their front leg brought in for proof. Maybe you should have watched the video of them shooting these animals from helicopters and watching the poor animals dying a slow death while the helicopter turned around and landed to finally put them out of their misery. I am so disappointed in TLC and refuse to even watch anymore. You were always one of my top 3 favorite stations and I'll be very happy to just pass you by.
you know if you dont want to watch it, dont! i'm sure theres plenty of others who will watch that will blow the rateings out of the Park.
Janet, if TLC is one of your favorite channels, that says something about you. And it's not good. I flip by there on my way to good channels on occasion, and all they have is babies and short people. Sarah will add some class to the place. But no, I'm not going to watch the show either.
You will do fine not watching TLC. I loved TLC ......... but refuse to watch them any more. I totally agree with your comment. I think I went through "TLC withdrawals" but as time has gone by....I am fine. 🙂 You will be too!
Send her to Mexico, please.
THAT IS A GREAT IDEA!!! WHY HASN'T ANYONE ELSE THOUGHT OF SUGGESTING THAT TO HER? !!
Maybe they should send you to Italy then you can spend your time visiting Foxy Knox inside the prison while your there or try to accomplish something in your life besides having a hate for someone that has more than you ever will in your lifetime along with the others on this board who are in the same boat. Like Sarah said, Obama doesn' t have the conjones to run this country. He's like the people that voted for him. Remember it akes smarts to know how to become a millionaire and the people on this board will stay like they are.
What the heck has Mexico ever done to you?
Mariann, I am so sorry to inform you that you're a brainwashed idiot.
Darn right it takes a "special" person to thrive in Alaska...."Special" Sisters–Sarah and Kate!
Yay! Let's all set our DVR's so that we can see people hunting wolves from helicopters! Maybe we can go to Palin's house so we can see Russia! God almighty... if an original thought ever passed through this woman's head, it would die of lonlieness.
HA HA HA
Will she be shown shooting wolves from helicopters and collecting a $150 bounty for each kill? Call the sponsors of this shameful program and let them know what you think of their sponsorship of any programming that promotes this horrible woman. Shame on TLC and the Discovery Network!
Why do you keep repeating the same stupid lies. The Wolf program was Law long before Sarah Palin became governor. WHERE WERE YOU THEN? Gov. Paln has never even shot at a wolf. The Wolf law was put into place to save the caribou and moose herds. The wolves were destroying the caribou and moose herds. Because of the Wolf law the caribou and moose herds are prospering again. Don't you care about the caribou or the moose herds?
Maybe if you paid attention, you'd know that she never said she could see Russia from her house. But then, you're a liberal dolt, so you don't know how to pay attention.
Lester..........another person that thinks everyone that makes a negative comment about Palin or any other GOP is a Liberal !! My god!! What's wrong with all of you. The negative comments could be a Progressive, an Independent, a Democrat or a Republican! And TRUTH.......Palin would gladly support any law that would kill off the wolves, even if she did not make the law.......I'm sure you know she is a big hunter of caribou and moose. Leave Nature alone.......it has a way of working out on it's own without the intervention of MAN. It did alright for millions of years without us.
No, she did not say that she could see Russia from her house. That was Tina Fey. However, Palin did say that you could see Russia from Alaska as a response to a question about her foreign relations qualifications on a Charlie Gibson interview. However, her Couric interview on the subject was even funnier.
Maybe right after showcasing Palin's hiking, climbing, and hunting skill, TLC can play a video of 0bama swatting a fly that had the media in a swoon for a week or so last year.
I couldn't handle listening to her babbling and strange "Palinese" way of talking with all the extra "too's" and "also's". I'm sure Jerry Springer will be joining her as well. TLC also hosts all those other freak shows, so no surprise here. For the fact that most folks in Alaska can no longer stand this airhead, this is quite a joke. Sure she's laughing all the way to the bank; we have an embarrassing bunch of fools in this country.
Or maybe they can show Obama in the girly jeans throwing the ball in the dirt.
I would like to see Sarah and Obama on the basketball court together. Sarah would wipe the girly man all over the court.
Truth..............I doubt that very much. She doesn't have the smarts to beat Obama. She thought she could see Russia from Alaska. I'm sure she would probably take the basket ball and kick it like a football. Not too bright.
Who cares..She's trying to stay in the spotlight so she can run for presidency. She couldn't carry out her term in Alaska. She just wants to make sure she has income by not being in a goveernment position.
Obviously you do care or you wouldn't have taken the time to read the article and then comment about it!
I think you are right Kimbie. I don't think Palin is very smart, but I think she has some clever people behind her and they want her in office as much as she wants to be in office. It takes money to get elected and you can't make that much in government to achieve that. So she is out to make that kind of money and show support to other Republicans hoping they will lend their support to her in 2012 or further down the road. They have a plan................. 😛
God help us all!!!!
Yuck...I sure won't be watching...or voting for her.
I think SARAH PALIN needs to return to her household and pay attention to the "HOME FRONT"..............also, I don't mind her speaking her mind but she needs to do it in good taste and not sure she is able to do that!
God won't help us..........if he would help us...........Palin wouldn't have made it this far!
You probably need hel;p and plenty of it and so does this country since Obama was elected president no doubt by people like you.
This will totally be added to my DVR because clearly this has "Ridiculous guilty pleasure" written all over it.
Ditto....right in between Kate Plus 8 and Monsters Inside Me.
Palin is to Gosselin as...
Little People, Big World is to Hoarding: Buried Alive
so let me get this strait CNN now promotes Fox News pundits programming?
It is scarey to me that Sarah Palin is even still around. She is so dumb and it is a real reflection on the Republican party and where it is headed.
All that falls under the HUGE catagory of who gives a damn! Palin is a monumental bore!
So is she going to talk about how she encouraged the hunting down of Alaskan wolves far from society...from helicopters with automatic guns and rewarded hunters for each bloody paw turned in. This monster has no business on TLC/Discovery. Might as well put her on the Green Network and Animal Planet because that makes just as much sense.
Sarah go smart. Somebody came to Alaska, and gave her a choice. You can stay here, or leave to make millions. The key is to keep saying emotionally charged statements, just like Mr. Beck. The fact is that both would be working at a car wash if it paid more that they make now. It's all about money....gee what a shocker. Doesn't say much for either Sarah, or Glenn other than they found a way to enrich themselves by encouraging hatred. For her sake, I hope she has a change of heart, and devotes herself to something meaningful. Maybe this is a beginning, or maybe I need to take my medication......
