Palin’s Reality Show: ‘Flippin Fun’ and Freedom (Video)
October 15, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—Sarah Palin, the former half term governor of Alaska is moving full steam ahead with her cashing-in since she left office a year ago after serving half a term. After writing a book, inking a deal with Fox News and commanding upwards of $100,000 per speaking engagement for her meandering word salad speeches, Palin also teamed up with Discovery Communication’s TLC network to star in a reality TV show called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” TLC released a trailer for the program that airs on November 14. And it depicts Palin and her family frolicking in the Alaskan wilderness. “I’d rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office. I’d rather be out here being free,” says Palin in the trailer. But in reality, she spends the majority of her time traveling around the country to line her pockets.
The trailer shows Palin, husband Todd and the rest of her brood, riding on snow machines, canoeing and leading a dogsled. The scenery certainly looks magnificent, but as soon as Palin starts to speak the spell is broken.
“Oh, gosh!” Palin says. “We are somewhere that people dream about.”
“This is flippin’ fun!”
The text tells us that political lobbyists are not native to Alaska.
“No lobbyists, only one agenda: family adventure.” “Step into Sarah’s backyard.”
Palin may be the first presidential hopeful to have starred in a realty show. That can’t be a good thing.
