Flippin’ embarrassing? You betcha!
Boston Herald ^ | 11/15/10 | Jennifer C. Braceras

Posted on 11/15/2010 10:38:04 AM PST by teddyballgame

Sarah Palin has officially “jumped the shark.”

Last night’s premier of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” will be remembered as the moment the once-promising, conservative darling crossed over into the absurd.

Part Alaska tourism promo, part window into the family Palin, TLC’s eight-part series features clips of the former governor at home in gym shorts and shots of the family enjoying the great outdoors while she calls out folksy comments like, “this is flippin’ fun!”

If that’s not enough, Palin takes Kate Gosselin (of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” fame) camping in the Alaska wilderness - the two women reportedly didn’t get along (Kate, it seems, is a bit of an indoor cat).

Conduct unbecoming a former governor and vice presidential

Oh, for crying out loud. That is pretty bad.

Media women who don’t Palin usually have graduated from a “7 Sisters” or Ivy League school. It’s pure snobbery.

So we have liberals who hate it when real Americans do what Americans can do. Be American.

Why am I not surprised that a liberal would think such a thing.

I watched it and Sarah rules.

Question?

Can anyone see Obama climbing a mountain like Sarah did?

Not!

I was surprised coming out of the Boston Herald, but they have hired Mike Barnicle in the past, after he was terminated from the Glob for making up stories and/or plagiarism.

However, Palin takes Kate Gosselin (of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” fame) tells me all I need to know that I didn't miss much not watching it, even though the local PBS stations didn't run the latest Sherlock Holmes incarnation.

Jennifer (author) is a NE elitist. THAT’s why she is embarrassed by Sarh Palin just being Sarah Palin.

I am embarrassed by inner-city thugs being inner-city thugs.

Earth to Boston...if I want absurd, I’ll look up sayings by Bawney Fwank, your ugly and stupid bimboy Kerry, and dead Ted.

Hell, even Harvard has become a joke.

And let me know when you finally admit that NONE of your senators have any.

Sarah could out think, beat up, and out “attractive” any of the mail wimpiods that pose as humans in your sorry limp wrist state.

Right, dressing up in gym shorts and enjoying the outdoors is unprofessional of a former vice presidential candidate and ex-governor, whereas dressing up in pantsuits and throwing ashtrays at their husbands makes them presidential candidate material?

The truth is:

There is NO politician out there who will represent oneself perfectly. Putting all of one's hopes on the actions of another is a sure recipe for disappointment.

Sarah seems to bring the green out in women. Pure jealously. Instead of praising her example of being a powerful woman, they criticize her because she is something they can never be; a happy and secure woman.

Obama is athletic enough to do some serious climbing and to be proud of his manly prowess:

Note that Obama is on the bottom rung, which is higher than he ought to be.

What am I missing? I watched every second of the show last night and didn't even hear the name Kate Gosselin uttered. I think you missed alot by not watching. You missed a good family acting normal, enjoying themselves and each other and doing things that inside-the-beltway politicians would never attempt. Sure, it seemed a little hokey at times but that's how normal people act.

She is a real live NE Lib Repub elitist. A true Palin hater.

Jennifer C. Braceras ’89 (communication), a newly appointed trustee who was named one of Massachusetts top 10 lawyers in 2000 and is the mother of four, enjoys being a contrarian. For starters, she is a Republican in a Democratic state and likes it that way. "If I lived in Alabama, I'd probably be a Democrat," Braceras says, noting too that politics has no place in the trustees’ boardroom. I don't care if someone is liberal or conservative. We're there because we care about the university."

Yeah, Palin didn’t do anything classy like give the Queen of England an i-pod full of her own speeches, give the UK PM a cheap set of DVD’s he can’t even play, kowtow to a bunch of crooked Arab sheiks, send world’s leading anti-Semite Ahmanutjob a birthday card, give the Russians a giant model of a re-set button with the wrong word on it, double the unemployment rate, quadruple the national debt, “win” a Nobel Prize for not being George W. Bush...

Need we go on?

This show is one of th dumbest things I’ve ever watched.

I’d vote for Jack Osbourne (Ozzy’s son) for President before I’d vote for Palin at this point.

That a person with a PR agency, and a background in TV news as an on air personality, would allow such a show on the air is beyond comprehension.

More bitching from the sidelines. So what about Palin’s show? She’s clearly enjoying life with her family and putting a positive spotlight on Alaska. This will have little to do with whether she has a successful run for President.

I wouldn’t blame her a bit if she turned it down; why give up a great life along with a massive amount of influence as an outsider, and subject yourself to the life-draining experience of governing an increasingly ungovernable country?

I hate to say it, but I wasn’t terribly impressed with the show. They should change the title to Alaska’s Sarah Palin.

I like Sarah Palin, but I really think she’s very close to over-exposure.

I think Michelle Bachman has more class. I like her. Can you see Michelle doing a show like this? I can’t.
