'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Gets Nov. 14 Start Date From The Learning Channel
Citizen Palin 4 President ^

Posted on 08/06/2010 3:43:16 PM PDT by MaxCUA

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" will premiere Nov. 14 at 9 on TLC, the network announced Friday.

The eight-part series, produced by reality king Mark Burnett, will feature the former Alaskan governor, her family, and for at least one episode, Kate Gosselin and her children.

"The Palins recently shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family, and that camping trip will be part of an episode," TLC president and general manager Eileen O'Neill told television reporters in Beverly Hills.

This woman is a brilliant politician.
She has a knack of keeping her name in the news, and herself in the spotlight.
Right when the mid-terms end, the pundits are already going to start talking about 2012. Her book comes out in November, and this TV special does too. Think people will care if Romney, Huckabee, Thune, Daniels, or Pawlenty will announce? No, all eyes will be on Palin, and the liberal media will be breathless with will-she-run stories.

Will Octomom ALSO have some time with the Palin family?

She has a brood of kids too!

Why not?

Good grief! What is WRONG with Sarah Palin?

“This woman is a brilliant politician. “

Only a blind idiot would think siding up with Kate Gosselin is a sign of brilliance. It is totally STUPID and reinforcemes to me NOT TO WANT Sarah Palin as my next President. NO WAY, Hose!

Is THIS the ONLY way Sarah Palin can get attention?

Getting attention by showing how STUPID she IS and associating with bitter divorcees and her IVF kids ?

LOL!!!

How impressed with Sarah Palin are you with this “brilliant” move by Sarah Palin?

Will Octomom be next? O

r maybe Lindsay Lohan?

Or Brittany Spears?

Sarah could get even MORE ATTENTION by having these losers on her show too! Just think of the PUBLICITY she'd get.

Looks to me that it was part of the deal, to appear with Gosselin. Either have her for one show and get something positive for Alaska, or do nothing.

I’m sure you would do nothing. Sarah, on the other hand, wants to do something positive for Alaska, and if it meant having Gosselin for one show, so be it. You can choose not to watch the show, but millions of Americans will. That’s what matters. Especially if “independents” see her under another light.

You bet I'll get as “judgmental” as YOU are towards me.

You bet!

I don't need to pretend I am STUPID or DUMB and hide behind not being “judgmental”. This is a STUPID move. Maybe I give Sarah Palin too much credit. Maybe for Sarah Palin it is a DUMB move. SUrely you know the difference between STUPID and DUMB and God forbid if someone states the truth about this woman, Sarah Palin.

Obvious some people get their pants in a knot tighter than some others. Silly remarks because even the knit-wit Democrat's understand the work she is doing for our side is more than helpful. Though you are correct she has a “knack”.... for taking on Bo and the Democrat's...no one at this time does it better and everyone knows this..across the political board.

However some do need to vent and pout over her success....

This was not Palin's decision. It was TLC's decision, sheesh.

Iirc, the sextuplets were conceived by intra-uterine sperm transfer and Clomid dosage, not IVF. Totally nuts, imo, but it is a very different procedure.

I suppose from your point of view that would be the best way for you to express yourself.

As for me, I prefer to speak for myself. I am totally disgusted with such poor judgment on behalf of Sarah Palin all to get “attention”. It's pathetic.

All that will be gained here is having Sarah Palin LAUGHED AT. TLC is a leftist show. This is just more GOP fodder. Surely Sarah Palin has more cajoles than to be coerced into something so transparent.

oh my, off the charts. I think you should use MORE CAPS to make your point

and you also forgot to add, "I know you are, but what am I?" to your stellar post...

Apparently, she is doing very well without your input, advice or mockery, so I'm more apt to hold my thoughts and JUDGMENT (those caps were for you) until after I've seen the series. Context is important.

I can say much, but why should I? I understand you don’t like Sarah. My point is that you are getting worked up about something beyond your control.

Frankly I don’t mind contrary points of view, it keeps us honest. What I do mind is when criticism goes way out of line.

If you don’t like her, fine, say so and move on. But to keep coming back seems weird. But hey, it’s your right and more power to you.

WAIT A MINUTE, this could be fu after all!!

SARAH PALIN & KATE GOSSELIN’s SUCKY WILDERNESS ADVENTURE

SARAH PALIN bit her lip as KATE GOSSELIN melted down on their camping trip after the Plus 8 mom was handed a bucket with a toilet seat on top.

Kate Gosselin’s much-hyped Alaskan camping trip with Sarah Palin turned into a nightmare when the mega-mom suffered a diva-like meltdown - and stormed off despite Sarah’s pleas.

The reality show star stayed at the campsite for just two hours of the planned two-day adventure - and left amid an avalanche of insults, complaints and tears, The ENQUIRER learned exclusively.

Kate Goesslin is a mess. She is a spoiled diva and very entitlement minded who uses her KIDS as PAWNS to live LARGE.

Would you mind posting your reviews of all the other new TV series, which haven’t yet been released or previewed? Since you seem to have “the sight”, perhaps you could save us all a lot of time. Otherwise, we’ll be forced to wait until we actually see the program, before we can pass judgment. Don’t waste your gift on just one series.

I can't believe you see Kate G. as a “hottie”!

Geesh!

Remove Kate's fake boobs, bleached teeth, dyed hair and give her back her liposuctioned body and you wouldn't look twice at her. Mind you, all these improvements were “free”. Kate's naturally repulsive ME oriented personality should also SCARE YOU AWAY.

My first impression when I heard that Sarah was doing the Alaska show was that it would be some sort of travelogue of different areas of Alaska and wildlife with Sarah narrating and maybe appearing in some outdoor scenes, kayaking in it’s beautiful rivers and lakes, etc. I hope this doesn’t turn out to be some Kate plus Eight show, or whatever it was called.

My reasons for opposing Palin have little to do with her over saturation in the media, as cloying as it is.

But Kate needs a spanking, regardless. I’ll take care of it.

No, but I’ve cleaned out lots of drawers and closets in search of it. Frank (the baby) told me it was in the craft-supply drawers, but he was wrong.

Bill has to finish the 10th grade, anyway, and he’s not hurrying. At this rate, we’ll find it when we move in 2019 and he’ll *still* be in the 10th grade!

This is part of Sarah's strategy. Too many people see her through the caricatures of the liberal media. Once people start listening and seeing her, they'll respect her more.

And once you're a Sarah supporter, there's no turning back.

The Gosselin thing was probably part of her TLC contract. Remember that Discovery/TLC IS Sarah’s employer here-—they make the decisions about the series-—she doesn’t.
