TLC's Clinton Kelly not a fan of 'Palin's Alaska'

"What Not to Wear" host Clinton Kelly doesn't like TLC's style when it comes to their program choices. The fashion expert says he isn't happy appearing on the same network as Sarah Palin.

"I wasn't thrilled when I heard that Sarah Palin had an eight-hour infomercial, you know, on my network because she basically stands for everything I don't stand for or I'm against. So it's a little bit rough," Kelly said of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" during a recent appearance on HLN's "The Joy Behar Show."

But what most bothers 41-year-old Kelly is what he views as hypocrisy.

"I hate somebody who's, like, 'Oh, look at nature. Look at this beautiful Alaska. ... Look how beautiful everything is. Let's go kill something ... because we need some meat in the refrigerator.'"

Harsh words, perhaps, but at least he didn't attack her wardrobe.

    According to every article I read this just proves how the libs are they hate anyone that does not agree or think like they do he is like the fifth celebritiy I have seen come out and say they hate Palin because she is against what they believe in...I have never seen a conservative on television come out and use the word hate towards someone that disagrees with them in the way that the libs do conservatives will just say they dont agree with the other person but rarely will use the word hate..Its amazing how a small town gal from Alaska can be such a threat to these celebertards.
    and libs think they are the ones that are more tolerant of others views I dont think so once again comments like this just prove it..

    Clinton Kelly has more taste and class in his little pinky, than Palin has in her entire body...or the state of Alaska for that matter!! Clinton knows cheap and trialer trash when he sees it, as do I. I wrote to TLC, complaining that they were running political advertising for the Republicants/Teabaggers and wondering if they were going to give equal time to Mrs. Obama or their girls? After all...THEY HAVE CLASS!! Not surprisingly, I have not heard back from them. Thanks Clinton for confirming my thoughts exactly!!

    We moved to Wasilla not long before Ms. Palin was put in the public spotlight. We can not wait to leave in the Spring. The people here have no intrest in newcomers and getting to know them. This place is one big Federal money pit everyone is on some form of a program. People will say there children have ADD or FAS to get there kids on SS. At the Welfare office it is like a homecoming everyone knows you. This state is not independent and could not make it without federal tax money. In Anchorage the largest city they have a shortage of natural gas to keep the place going due to not having any place to store it. They tell you to cook with your microwave to conserve. The Doctors here do not take Medicare or like Tricare but most are ex military and had there school paid for by the Federal Government. This place needs to get off the Federal dole they take 2times what they send back to Washington. And as far as the Palins go except for Todd they are fake. The kids are not educated and have no manners. I do not blame them it is the mothers fault. I hope no one finds out who wrote this post as our home is for sale and I want to get back to a better place. To be fair I think that most of Alaska is a geat place but we moved to the worst part Wasilla. I have not even talked about the drugs and other problems here. Ms. Palin has nothing to be proud of.

    Are you serious? First off, scopes will help you kill the animal in one shot. Secondly, have you ever shot at a duck? For duck hunting you do not use a scope, you try to hit a tiny bird flying by. It takes some skill. Honestly, I do not know a single hunter that is upset they killed an animal, but they are all greatful that they were able to go hunting. Getting fresh ALL natural free range meat is way healthier than the meat at the grocery store. Also, many hunters donate meat to homeless shelters and stuff. These days everyone just wants us all to run out to the grocery store to buy slaughtered cow/pigs/chickens. That stuff is NOT as healthy as getting wild meat. Wild turkey beats any turkey from butterball!! You guys should try eating this fresh meat vs store meat and you will understand why hunters hunt.....its not just for the thrill of the kill....its for the food!

    I like Clinton, and his show, but his statements here are hypocritical.

    A year or two ago TLC aired a special showing Clinton buying his home and decorating it. In that episode he adorned his living room with an enormous chandelier made of antlers. Further, rather than utilize the antlers for their rustic, natural beauty, he spray painted them glossy black.

    So, apparently he feels that killing animals for meat is inhumane and immoral, but it's okay to use their pilfered body parts to decorate his home???

    I also wonder if he wears real leather. Does he feel it's bad to kill animals for meat, but okay to kill them for fashion?

    Disappointed in Clinton for his absurd hypocrisy.

    Early tribal cultures hunted for food, and they respected the animal. Not like these modern Deliverance-types who call themselves "hunters" with their high-powered scopes and helicopters. Palin has been a boil on the posterior of the Wildlife Conservation movement for years even before McCain lost his marbles and got talked into buddying up with her. She was an advocate of bear-hunting during cub season, essentially killing the cubs by killing their mother. She was an advocate of oil drilling directly in the middle of the polar bear habitats. There is nothing nice or real about her. She used her Down-syndrome baby son at campaign rallies to get the ultra-conservative vote. What is to like about her???

    Do you know how unhealthy and chemical filled the meat you eat is? They force feed those animals garbage that would literally make you vomit and turn them in to tortured walking slabs of meat. The most respectful thing a person could possibly do for the animal kingdom and for the human race is to pick up a gun and go out in to the wilderness and shoot a wild animal in person. You're the type of person that would have been walking around telling everyone that putting jews in concentration camps was the human thing to do and for their own good! Pretty much the same reasoning only not as serious. Whatever helps you sleep at night and avoid facing reality.
    Just what do you think goes on out in the wild? All the animals are sitting around having tea party's like in some kind of mother goose story? You liberals just frighten me sometimes. 10 years from now PETA is going to be out in the woods putting bears in 'time out' for not playing nice with animals lower on the food chain.

      dB: Do you understand what you are saying? Yes, MOST people can go to the grocery store and buy meat, however, meat at the grocery store has been raised and killed in more horrific conditions than those that are truly hunted. Also, meat at the grocery store has been injected with all kinds of steriods and hormones....these make the animal grow faster and bigger so the farmer makes a bigger other words not exactly all natural. An animal that has been hunted has led a normal life, free range, all natural meat (nothing injected into it) and dies rather quickly with very little, if any, safe your grocery store argument for the "city folk" because us hunters do not care!

    Your whole comment is based on hypotheticals. And what does "tolerance" have to do with someone seeing a Public Relations stunt for what it is? She quit her elected post in lonely Alaska for higher aspirations and income. That's a fact, not a "what if". And where did you do your research? The caribou are nowhere near being over-populated. There are almost 1 million caribou in Alaska and only 22,000 are killed each year. Bears, wolves and pipelines (that affect migration) have made sure there isn't a species-threatening spike in population. These hunts are for food and not Population Control as you've stated. Alaska is huge (& beautiful) and is more capable of handling huge populations of any species than anywhere in our union. So go preach that face-saving right-wing fact less feces somewhere else.

    Americans have become so ridiculously stupid; how anyone could take Palin seriously for one second is beyond me. She is a complete airhead and quits everything she starts. When her daughter was pregnant she went off on the campaign trail - family values my foot! I would not let her walk my dog.

    Personally I don't really give a rat's behind what happens to this country. The Republican party is destroying the country I love through their hate - if you're not a white European and 100% healthy (like I am), America has no place for you. They are all about supporting insurance companies and have no interest in helping people - yet go to church and think they are walking in the path of Christ. They blaspheme and this is why I no longer say I am Christian, because it ha these negative connotations. They can continue to run this country into their ground with their philosophies, legislation and propoganda; I myself am going to give up my citizenship as I am embarrassed and ashamed to call myself an American.

As to the Caribou - perhaps if he knew more about factory farming and issues people have in that process - he'd realize that those with issues with factory farming (and not vegans) would prefer "meat" to be hunted as she did. Again, not a fan or hater but really, if you do dislike her make it something important not your own ignorance on an issue. And I like Clinton too!

    I find it sad that the Liberal Left preaches tolerance and acceptance to everyone EXCEPT when that tolerance involves an opinion other than their own. Now I am not stupid enough to believe that the RIght would support "O'Bama's Hawaii", but I would expect more from the allegedly tolerant Left. You cannot have it both ways.

    This guy seems to be pretty ignorant. First of all, it is not HIS network, they just choose to run his show on it. Second of all, most hunters are conversationalists. They thin herds that have become too large for their native habitat to support, thus keeping them from going extinct. If Clinton Kelly had done any research, he would know this. He just parrots what other people have said before and claims it as his own. All too common on both sides today.

    By the way, I would bet anything that he wears leather shoes and belts. Doesn't that make him the hypocrite?

    How trite and predictable that a gay man from NYC doesn't like Sarah Palin. Unfortunately his points don't hold any weight. Alaska is indeed beautiful, but it's not hypocritical to love the land and then hunt it for food. Humans have been hunting meat for survival for thousands of years. It's actually stranger that we don't hunt anymore. Killing an animal for food is a timeless ritual of humanity. I'm willing to bet Clinton Kelly's effete urban rituals (the details of which I actually don't want to know) are far stranger and truly hypocritical, given that he is a grown man.

      Do you smoke crack? First, Eagles are endangered and ILLEGAL to hunt. Secondly, animals raised on beef/hog/chicken farms are injected with steriods and hormones. Hunting helps control animal populations and helps feed people HEALTHY NATURAL meat. If there were no hunters those cute little deer would all die off from starvation (due to over population) or disease would spread rapidly throughout and kill them all. At least a bullett/bow kills them clean and they do not suffer horrible deaths of starvation and disease. Also, have you seen how cows are butchered? Ya, real pleasent for them. It is NATURAL to kill wild animials and eat them. Its called living off the land. There is nothing wrong with it....

The purpose is to insult someone else who disagrees with your view. Since you're a liberal you feel justified in throwing in the old "Do you read?" type accusation because of course anyone who doesn't agree with a liberal is uneducated and naive.
      Sarah Palin is obviously intelligent on a few different levels. She would probably pull off an above average score on an IQ test. I'm guessing a lot higher then you. I'm not deluded however; I don't think she's a genius. I would imagine someone like Bill Clinton would put her score to shame as he would most politicians in recent history.

    I am not Sarah Palins biggest fan. I'm not even a conservative. I'm certainly not liberal either. Calling her kids biggots and hate filled because they said things most of you have probably dwarfed by comparison with your own mouths at one time or another? Besides the fact that they are children who are free to make mistakes. At least the Palins don't live in a bubble with a team of people making sure nothing real ever gets out in to the public like most politicians.
    None of the crap you're saying about her is new and you've come to none of these conclusions on your own. It's all garbage you've heard in the media. It's all crap you've been told to hate her for. If the media stopped give you the answers and filling your heads with outrage you wouldn't know what to do with yourselves.
    Sarah Palin is still a human being. Her kids are still human beings. She is not a sociopath. She didn't give birth to a retarded baby to get the sympathy vote, she isn't trying to indoctrinate her kids in to the KKK, she's not running around mudering animals for pleasure. she's just a human being that wants a career in politics and naively doesn't realize she isn't qualified to run the country.
    That doesn't mean it's appropriate to hate her and her children. Get a grip.

      If someone doesn't see corruption or extremist views in a political movement or ideology that's fine by me. What scares me are the people who see it in one side and not the other. That makes them part of the problem. Sarah Palin is relatively harmless in my opinion. I don't think she ever stood a chance nor does stand a chance at getting back in to politics in any way. She's nothing but a sideshow to keep everyones attention off of whats actually going on in Washington. She did a reality show with Kate Goslin for crying out loud. Any fear of her ruling the world is completely paranoid. It seems like every month more and more civil liberties are taken away while people are glued to the tv watching fake "issues" unfold. I don't think it matters which party gets elected. They're both pushing the same totalitarian agenda.
      There is no way on earth the leaders of the free world would ever allow Sarah Palin anywhere near the whitehouse. It was NEVER even an issue other then to the American people. In fact I think her only purpose for being thrown in to the presidential race with McCain was to ensure an Obama victory.
      Politics in America hasn't been on the "up and up" for at LEAST a decade and probably more. A democracy can't function properly when the wealth of a few elites gives them more power then the government can wield.

This was, as Kelly stated, an informercial designed to feed Palin's ego and her boost her political ambitions. That was proved by her frequent political at the administration and even the President's wife throughout the show. Sarah Palin is a narcissistic, vindictive ignoramus who has parlayed the most irritating voice in the history of American politics into a personal fortune and a semi-political career.

    Think he might be a vegetarian actually, but that's not the point. The point he was trying to make was that it seems odd to showcase a beautiful state such as Alaska and then have to throw in Sarah making political jabs while in heavy makeup shooting or beating animals with clubs. It makes no sense. It makes her and the state look bad. He didn't comment on TLC's decision to produce the show, but was stating he didn't like sharing the same network as someone who stood for things he did not agree with. However, What Not to Wear, is one of the highest rated shows on the channel, so I think he has a right to at least answer questions when asked. I've actually met him and he really is a nice guy. I actually agree with him as well, this isn't a show about Alaska, this is her campaigning for 2012. The use of "8 hour Infomercial" was dead on. Although hunting is a part of some people's lives for food in Alaska, shooting from the air or clubbing them and then laughing is not and hunting is not at all necessary for the Palin's. At this point with the money they make, hunting for them would just be for fun and that disgusts me. No problem if they are doing it for food, because I am not a vegetarian, but I do have a huge problem with her killing things for ratings or for kicks and giggles.

      Not a criticicsm - just a clarification - they packaged the Caribou meat for food. I live in an area where there are hunters (and just outside of NYC) so we all have plenty of easy access to the grocery store. But, folks still hunt and eat the food they kill. (Completely get a vegan [notice I'm not saying vegetarian) perspective on her hunting though]. Clinton probably is a nice guy - too nice to get caught up in the latest "why I hate SP" mantra. Frankly, I think he's a better and nicer guy than that. Your life and your success Clinton has nothing to do with her. If asked, just "bridge" to another topic - her clothes for example. I'm much more likely to appreciate his perspective on her clothes than her political viewpoint. It's not that hard to bridge – as someone in the media spotlight - I'm sure he's been "media trained" to do it.

    It seems bashing Sarah Palin and her family has become a national pastime for many folks. It's almost a sheep-herd mentality sort of thing and I'm not sure some people even know why they "hate" her so much - they just seem to be doing it because others are.

    I neither like Ms. Palin nor dislike her - I am indifferent - but even I can see the lengths to which some folks go in order to trash her and her family is ridiculous. What did she ever do to any of you personally to warrant such vitriol and hate? If you don't care for her or her politics, don't vote for her. Simple as that. If you don't like the program about her life in Alaska, change the channel. I choose not to watch her program because there are other programs on that I find more interesting. I find Kate Gosselin obnoxious and choose not to watch her show either. It's really very simple.

    And as for Mr. Kelly, I do enjoy his program from time to time, but perhaps he should seek employment on another network if having Ms. Palin on the same network is so bothersome to him. Really, it's all about accepting that there are different people with different views and they won't always line up with your own. Funny how some of the folks who preach about tolerance the most are the ones who show it the least whenever someone else has different views than they do.

    Although I agree with Kelly 100%, I think he needs to go down a couple of notches on his pole. The last time I checked, TLC was not HIS network. If he does, he has the strength to let her go; I wish he did and wish he would.

Of course everything isn't true to life....its a tv show, and a show Kelly only wishes he could be part of. Sorry man, she is more popular than you, and I bet you wish you were homecoming queen too. He is just a poor loser who wishes he was half the man that woman can be, without a sack.

      Here we are, another middle school mentality republican tossing around the word Jealous. Why would anyone be jealous of that shrew? And really, look at the polls if you want to know how popular she is. Is she going to be able to duck the questions like she has been for 2 yrs after her disastrous interviews in 2008 if she wants to be president? Will she have room to write the answers on her palms? She's a freak, a fake and a bimbo who has less sense than my dog.

      Middle school mentality is being the sheep that you are, thinking it is fun to knock on someone's lifestyle you know nothing about. Ya, you are a sheep, you can't form your own opinion so you jump right on the most popular one. Jealous is not a term just thrown around, you are very obviously that, and a liar if you wouldn't take the money she gets for just showing people the way she grew up. She never says that its for everyone, especially not a wannabe intellectual you try to be. You should comment when what you say hasn't already been said a million times. Maybe something original, and not condescending because you think you know all because you read a few polls.

      No Gary, I am NOT jealous of that idiot and I sure as heck am not jealous of her so-called life-style. And you call me a liar, why? You know nothing about me, but we all know about Sarah. Speaking of lies, that IDIOT lies all the time. Just recently she claimed she made a typo when she wrote refudiate. That's odd because she said refudiate instead of repudiate on the Hannity show just a short time before her Twitter lie. She lies every time she opens her big mouth. She's another Ann Coulter, and that's no compliment.

You sound like a sheepish idiot because you believe everything you see on tv or read.

And like someone else pointed out, she was given hint after hint that she was being pranked but had no clue. She's that stupid. And as far as me judging her, how about the way she judges everyone else? She has something to say about everyone who doesn't think like she does. She slimes Michelle Obama, but have you ever heard Michelle say anything about Palin? I doubt it very much. And god knows there is plenty to say. You can lust after her all you want, but not all men are duped by her makeup and expensive clothes. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear and she's a bonafide sow.

I'm sure she'll have no problem deregulating businesses, at which point I'd like to make sure her show continues so we can see the destruction caused by her party's policies.

      Honest? Sorry, but $200 shirts are NOT for everyone. He puts people down based on their physical appearance. Whats worse is that they try to send regular everyday people to speand 5k on 3 outfits! What is normal about that? How does that actually help these people out? It doesnt. All it does is buy them 3 outfits that they will never wear again for fear of messing them up. I love it when they do that to a stay at home mom...ya b/c stay at home mothers want to wear skirts and heals around the house and run errands w/ their kids in that type of outfit...very! As for Palin, while I have mixed feelings on her running for president, I do know that she seems like a cool person to hang out with. Her show is very interesting and is a great promo for alaskan tourism. She shows the nature side of the state and its beautiful. Of course Mr Kelly would NOT agree as he is a city type of guy. And how annoying that he would call it HIS network! Its NOT his network, its merely a network that has picked up his very unpractical show! Get a grip in honesty...honesty is NOT making people feel stupid as he does. Palin–on her show-doesnt put others down. She shows that people can and do work hard for a living and that going outside into REAL nature is still normal for some.

      Response to Life... If you've never watched Clinton's show, perhaps you should keep your comments to yourself. The network GIVES the person $5,000. On average, they use that money to purchase 30 outfits or more. There have been people on the show that he could have belittled and made to feel fat or whatnot, but he doesn't. He's very encouraging. Perhaps his mannerisms aren't something that you'd appreciate, and that's your business. But if you have never watched the show, and don't know how it works, I would ask you to please NOT comment on it.

I have seen him belittle people, not for their weight but for the fact that they might wear sweats to a run and errand. I understand the concept of the show, I understand they give them the 5k to spend, but they make the people buy things that are really useful in their normal life...

      @John, if it gets you off to point out the ignorance of others, you should probably know that "Cleary" is not a word.

    Thank you! So nice to finally see a negative review from someone associated with the network, because TLC doesn't seem to take a real interest in viewers' or consumer opinions. Please also add reality shows promoting exploitation of children-like Kate Plus 8. So sick of these networks funding ridiculous & unimaginative shows-its like rewarding poor behavior! How about hiring writers to develop quality shows while also providing employment based on talent and merit?? TLC is becoming MTV's nerdy cousin in a network family of terrible programming

      I agree with you! I remember when TLC stood for The Learning Channel. Now It's The Lousy Channel. I know its much cheaper to do reality shows than to create a worthy show. But those bratty Toddlers in Tiaras must go. Those kids and their moms need a visit to the wood shed to meet Mr. Act Right

    Yea like Palin really does all those things in her spare time; when she is not criticsizing everyone else. Funny how her makeup is perfect while she shoots a moose. Yep this is for sure real life lol

      I do all the things Sarah Palin does in her spare time...I hunt, I fish, I camp....and I do all of it with makeup on. Quit placing labels on people and lifestyles you know nothing about.

    Jarrod – it's not a show about Alaska. It's about that dingbat Sarah Palin. If it were about Alaska, she and her dumba$$ family would not have to be on it. Your're deluded if you think otherwise.

      Exactly Mandy. I'm of the belief if we want to see the beauty and danger that is Alaska we have National Geographic and the Discovery line of channels that would show this pristine state in a much better way than this sick hour long Palin commercial. I've watched it, she knocks the media and her political opposition and how she detests the lamestream media, the reports about Trig (which were blogs, not any reputable news source) which I do think are in truly bad taste. And... knocking politicians on a nature show is usually not the norm. The very media she hates is how she has become famous and is maintained any type of notice. She should be thankful, I happen not to be. The less of her the better.

      Right on Clinton
      Love your show. I personally think that Sara Palin stands for Sara Palin. She is delusional if she thinks she represents Alaska. She abandoned her post in Alaska to pursue her only goal-making Sara Palin rich and famous.
      It would be nice if she would jusst keep her mouth shut but it usually is amusing what tends to come out of it.

    What an ignorant view. I would have thought clinton would not have stuped this low. It is about Alaska andher life there. Have you ever even been to Alaska? Well I think we should put Clinton and Stacy in the Alaska wilderness in heels and dress clothes without a shotgun or any weapons just nature and see what happens.

      I am offended that Sarah Palin abandoned ny state so she could get a multi million dollar book and tv deal. That is not the mark of a real leader, let alone an inteliigent person with any clue as to what public morsality is. Her children spew hartred off on twitter and she does nothing about it. She has made the entire state of Alaska look like a frathouse.

      Jarrod, have you WATCHED the show? There are slight jabs and subtle comments that make her points. It's not all it seems to be. It sickens me actually because it's just a blatant attempt to make her likable and appeal to potential voters. You mention Clinton. How LOUDLY would the right scream if he had a series where he puttered around Arkansas smiling and preening for cameras when he was obviously shooting for a presidential spot?? Your blindness is exhausting.

      You think this show was about Alaska? Wow! This was, as Kelly said, a multi-episode informercial specifically designed to boost Palin's political ambitions. As much of the show took place inside Palin's home as outside, and none of the sequences couldn't have been filmed in any other northern state with a lot of snow-covered mountains and wild life. If you want to learn what makes Alaska different, ask some questions about how much money each Alaskan gets from the oil companies. Ask about the fact that Alaska's population is smaller than some major cities in the lower 48. Ask Alaskans have they feel about the ex-governor quitting half-way through her term and making their state the laughingstock of the nation. Ask them how they feel about an alleged pioneer wilderness woman who goes out to kill a caribou, doesn't even know how to load her own rifle and takes five shots bring down her trophy. And she does it all for the "show". This narcissistic, vindictive, ignorant woman has made politics in this country a cesspool of lies, half-truths and incoherent jabber all intended to incite anger and misinform voters. The idea that TLC would give her a stage from which she can spew her inane rhetoric has been inexcusable.

      Have you ever watched Clinton's show? He and Stacey are so arrogant that it's unreal. Sometimes they are downright abusive to the people on the show. That, and most of the clothes they pick out are overpriced and ugly. Who really needs a $5K wardrobe anyway? I won't allow that show in my house anymore, and I hope it gets canceled.

      Hey Jarod,

      So, Palin's life is a constant jet-set from one hunting trip to a fishing trip, to a mountain-climbing trip? I would venture to guess that most Alaskans don't fly off on hunting trips every day.

      So, the show is a carefully-planned exercise in fiction.

      Jarrod is correct. Clinton is ignorant, indeed. He is implying that if someone has a different point of view or opinion than he does, they should not be allowed to have a show on TLC. What happened to liberals being open-minded and tolerant? Typical liberal hypocrisy.... News flash for Clinton, the majority of his viewers are probably conservatives with values and opinions more alighed with Palin's than his. I wonder if he has a problem with them watching his show and supporting him (and his wallet). I'm guessing not. Again, typical liberal hypocrisy.

      Yeah, this show is really about Alaska, just as much as I'm really about the anti-breathing movement.

      I'm an Alaskan. I live here every day, and I can tell you that her show is contrived, fake, and nothing more than one long soft-ball schmooze-fest to the lower-48 in an attempt to curry favor and win votes and/or more buyers of her pathetic books, and more Twitter followers.

      Planes do NOT pick you up directly from your backyard if you happen to live against a lake. The lake she lives on is devoid of fish, so she cannot fish in it. The caribou she killed? She did NOT take the most valuable meat from the animal and wasted most of it since they only took the hindquarters since that was all they could supposedly carry. And they call themselves responsible hunters. They way she carried her gun? Excuse me, had everyone else carry the gun for her (and her father, using a weapon as a walking stick?!).
      Nobody's hair and make-up are that good after 30 minutes of being in the wild, let alone days.

      Contrived BS to lull the masses. Any who fall for it deserve to be fooled.

      And no, I am not a liberal or a democrat. I am a 27 year old fiscally conservative socially moderate working mother of 4 boys. I refuse to be boxed into any party affiliation. I am not a part of the Tea Party or the Tea Party Express (nor would I want to be a part of the Express considering their figurehead/banshee).

      Jarrod, relax dude the wilderness is not out to get you. I've spent years out in the Canadian backcoubtry and I never needed to shoot anything to save my life. I have more worries about some of the trigger happy townies like Plain that can't shoot straight and have no idea what they are shooting at.

      Who cares if he does or doesn't like it...maybe everybody doesn't like the mess of show 'what not to wear'? There's a lot of hunting going on in other states that no one has mentioned...oh, that's right...doesn't matter becasue it's not Sarah Palin shooting the's not about the hunting or the show, it's about Sarah...whether you like her or not, it's about what SHE does regardless of other folks doing the same things...let's talk Joy Behar.....what a freak of nature: I thought I would enjoy her show until I found out any guest that she thinks might give her an answer she doesn't like is not in the studio with her but instead by satellite and then she cuts them off if they don't agree with her political opinion – or has the brass to speak up to her...lame Joy...really I channel surfed last night or the night before, she was asking Sarah to come on her show....really? she'd be too scared to have her sit with....Joy should be on Jersey Shore...same class just more money......anyway.....speak ugly to me , I don't care......I'm off to catch re-runs of Sarah Palin's Alaska and What not to wear !

I'm saddened to see how difficult it has become for everyone to live their own lives and keep the majority of people's uneducated opinions to themselves.

I have been a fan of 'What Not To Wear', they help women on many levels to find their femininity and beauty. I known Clinton was gay...yes I find this behavior against God-Nature...but these are my personal beliefs ....nothing to do with watching his TV show or keeps me from seeing his 'good works'.

      So why would Clinton fall for Joy B. negative approach to the new year 2011? What good did it do him to attack Sarah Palin Alaska and Family show? Do you think TLC will praise him?
