Skip to comments.Palin's TV Series a Stage for Political Future?
Posted on 11/13/2010 9:47:44 AM PST by ColdOne
"Sarah Palin's Alaska" portrays the show's heroine as an adventure-loving wife and mother enjoying a whirlwind of activities amid spectacular settings in her home state.
There are no overt clues to her future political ambitions in the first episode of the eight-part TLC documentary series that begins Sunday.

Make no mistake - those who say they’re going to “boycott” the show will be watching.
LOL...remember when the state-run media and the political “experts” said Sarah was finished after she resigned the AK governorship? You’d think they would have learned to keep their mouths shut regarding Sarah, but nooooooo. She is like catnip to them, and she always comes out ahead.
I see the left has a new smear game going on Sarah trying to link her to Soros.
‘Portrays her as’. Yeah, it’s all a set up. Sarah doesn’t really do all these things. /s
she always comes out ahead...
And she does it with such grace & humor.
Thanks I hadn’t seen that.
This bunch is so awful. Yet they love Soros and yet they don’t. Thank you for link.
Check out THE LAST FOUR WORDS on this clip and then see what you think about her political ambitions.
BTW - my wife loved this clip and THE LAST FOUR WORDS!
They should show her killing a moose and field dressing it. The libs would lose their lunch.
LOL! I’ll definitely be tuning in, no matter what her political future holds.
shes flipping awesome ..0b0z0 move over chump
Progressive suicide rate increase to ensue.
Anyone remember Ronald Reagan hosting the TV program “Death Valley Days”, sponsored by “20 Mule Team Borax”?
That depends on how you define "finished" and "coming out ahead".
In her own State of Alaska, Sarah Palin's candidate for U.S. Senate is losing to a write-in candidate with a hard to spell name.
Sarah Palin has found her niche as a fundraiser, as a $100,000 per pop speaker and as a reality TV star.
The trailer for Palin's TV series has her saying to the camera:
"I'd rather be doing this than being in some stuffy old political office"
I truly hope that Sarah Palin keeps doing what she'd "rather be doing" and keeps on making a ton of money for the next 6 years. My worst nightmare is having the Sarah Palin Fan Club nominate her as the Republican Presidential nominee in 2012 and then having four more years of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House.
Everything Palin does is done with an eye to her political future.
48-42? That is not really bad given the pummeling the lamestream media has given her the past two years. If she decides to run, there won’t be anything that isn’t known already (unlike the still unknown candidate Obama). Though the press won’t give her a chance, she can get her message out through personal appearances and endless campaign ads. Sooner or later they will have to recognize she has a reasonable and understandable message to be given, much like the economic one she just gave urging restraint on printing dollars.
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now;) ha ha!
Thinking Randy S. was either a ‘plant’ or a guy looking for work.
The coup de grace would be Glenn doing an interview with the guy. Then we could just end it. i.e. Don’t double dip the chip.
Cannot people just watch the show & learn something about geography & Alaska?
I would consider it an expanded ‘travel show’, with a far more interesting hostess. Too bad I cannot get that channel,
Sure- I remember that.
Here’s another trivia question:
Who played Red Ryder? I can see him in my memory, but cannot put a name on him.
I remember who played Little Beaver- but I have a block on who played Red Ryder.
Can anyone help???
Please private mail a response.
I love that pic,onyx. My favorite pic is the one of her changing from tennis shoes into her high heels though.
Looking forward to the series with this great American family. And, she’s not announced that she’s running for president.
When I was a child, I was a devoted fan of my city's new NFL expansion team. I still remember studying the remaing three quarters of the 1966 season's schedule and convincing myself that my beloved expansion team, then in the Division basement, could go undefeated for the rest of the season and make it to the Super Bowl.
Forty four years later, I don't believe in magical thinking anymore.
Regardless of why Sarah Palin has a nation-wide "Unfavorable" rating in national polls of almost 50%, the fact remains that she does.
Sarah Palin has as much chance of winning the general Presidential Election in 2012 as the Miami Dolphins coached by George Wilson, Sr. and quaterbacked by his own son, George Wilson, Jr., had a chance of winning the Super Bowl in 1966.
***Anyone remember Ronald Reagan hosting the TV program Death Valley Days, sponsored by 20 Mule Team Borax?****
I remember that show! I also remember it was hosted by “The Old Ranger’. Many years later I saw it hosted by Ronald Reagan, but the end credits still had The Old Ranger listed.
Didn’t Dick Powell also host it or was that his own Zane Grey Theater? I do rememeber another host for Death Valley Days.
We were poor and could only afford 10 Mule Team Borax.
That’s great, and Bristol looks terrific. I think that DWTS has given her an air of confidence like she’s never displayed before, even though she never got that pigeon.
Those last 4 words are a portent of things to come.
BTW, I noticed that a resident of this town (who has never taken down his McCain Palin sign) now has cut a hole where “McCain” used to be, leaving only PALIN! I may do the same with my “red lips” car magnet — just cut the McCain out, or paint it out.
Oh, yes! Loved that show. Reagan had a great voice, and that show got us all used to it. That show was before he became Governor, so when he started giving political speeches it was like listening to your father.
Sometimes a TV series is just a TV series.
Sarah Palin’s Alaska - Sunday 9/8c
This looks like a really good show. My husband will be so bummed because he’ll be hunting in a remote area of Missouri with NO TV. He just loves Sarah.
Thats a pic of Sarah digging for razor clams at Clam Gulch.. on the Kenai..
That poll is from July, 2009. I posted the most recent in post number 23.
I like that one, too. It’s those RED shoes.
Thank you very much for the link!
Clam Gulch looks delightful!
Come see hosepipe’s link!!!
I am so looking forward to seeing her ALASKAN series.
Uh . . . horsepucky. Raw unadulterated nonsense.
March 10, 1980. The GOP establishment had decided they needed another candidate besides GHW Bush to stop Reagan and started recruiting Gerald Ford:
"Former President Gerald Ford is the first choice of Republican and independent voters to head the GOP ticket, even though he has not yet declared himself a candidate for the Republican nomination.
Ford also leads President Carter among the general electorate."
We’re DVRing the show JUST IN CASE we miss it! Cool clam pictures. Maybe I’ll make clam chowder for dinner? However, they’ll come from a can...no clams in the desert.
As a kid I watched Ronaldus Magnus as he hosted a very low budget TV weekly show, Death Valley Days not even in color. He would have been so excited to host a series in HD color featuring the grandeur of Alaska, given the parched, desert scenery and its resident twenty-mule team Borax mine wagon he endured as his backdrop. RRs critics said the same things Palinophobes say today.
If Sarah is sacrificing her gravitas and, thus, a real chance at the WH, the Palinophobes should be glad about it.
It’s not the 50’s anymore.
Nice try, but perhaps you forgot that write in candidate is none other than Lisa Murkowski (hardly an unknown name in Alaska), who is the sitting senator (that Miller defeated in the primary, and then she used all kinds of tricks to remain on the ballot), and that race isn't yet over. While I don't think Miller is likely to win, let's remember that lots of democrats wrote in Murkowski's name, as their own party's candidate didn't stand a chance to win. In fact, the public employee's unions have spent heavily and done a lot of arm twisting on native Americans for Murkowski.
I yield to your superior debating skills.
I yield to your superior debating skills.
No, I must yield to your apt analogy! Clearly the 1966 Miami Dolphin can tell us a lot about Sarah Palin and the 2012 elections. /sarc
Ronald Reagan did not start the campaign with an "Unfavorable" rating in nationwide polls of almost 50%.
Reagan beat Jimmy Carter in 1980 and Gerald Ford would have beaten Jimmy Carter in 1980. Yet, even now, when Barack Hussein Obama's popularity is at it's lowest, Sarah Palin is soundly beaten in the polls by Obama and Sarah Palin cannot even get her own Senate candidate in her own State of Alaska elected when he is opposed by a write-in candidate.
Ronald Reagan was the Governor of California, the most populous state in the Union, for 8 years. By contrast, Sarah Palin was the governor of a state with the population that is half the size of San Diego, California and she quit the Governorship before her first term was completed to chase the Big Bucks on the $100,000 per speech circuit and to chase the Big Bucks with TV reality shows.
Sarah Palin would not even give a speech at the Tea Party Convention unless she was paid $100,000. Tea Party Convention Organizer Sued Over Rock Star Palins Speakers Fee
From 1975 to 1979, Ronald Reagan gave more than 1,000 daily radio broadcasts, the great majority of which he wrote himself. ... These radio programs demonstrate that Reagan had carefully considered nearly every issue he would face as president.
By contrast, Sarah Palin couldn't explain why North Korea and South Korea were separate nations.
I'm sorry, but if Sarah Palin cannot, like Reagan could, or you or I easily could, explain how the Yalta Conference shaped the post-World War II word and how the division of the Korean peninsula across the 38th Parallel into U.S. and Soviet occupation zones brought about the Korean war, Palin has no business pretending that she is qualified to be President of the United States.
I voted for Reagan for President twice and I served 7 and a half years of active duty with Ronald Reagan as my Commander-in-Chief.
Sarah Palin is no Ronald Reagan.
Actually, they can.
Brand new expansion team composed of washed up castoffs from the AFL and rookies = Not a snowball's chance in Hell of winning the Super Bowl in 1966
Candidate with a nationwide "UNFAVORABLE" rating of almost 50% before the Presidential campaign even starts = Not a snowball's chance in Hell of getting elected President in the general election.
Believing that the 1966 Miami Dolphins would win the Super Bowl by going undefeated for the rest of the season = Magical thinking by a child.
Believing that Sarah Palin can win the Presidency when she cannot even get her own candidate elected Senator in her own State of Alaska when opposed by a write-in candidate = Magical thinking by an adult that should know better.
