Kate Gosselin breaks down in tears while camping with Sarah Palin..(Must see TV)
Daily Mail ^ | 12/4/10 | staff

Posted on 12/04/2010 11:31:48 AM PST by pissant

As a single mother-of-eight, Kate Gosselin is no stranger to stress.

But it took Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin to publicly reduce her to tears.

The bizarre duo headed off together on a camping trip in Sarah's native Alaska recently.

Filming the adventure for an episode of the politician's new reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, Kate brought her eight children with her.

'I have never camped for real,' Kate, 35, admitted in a new clip of the episode, released today on Usmagazine.com.

In the preview clip, viewers can watch Kate hiking through the woods with her group of children and learning about the dangers of bears from a ranger.

At one point, Kate is tearful as she complains: 'I'm chilled to the bone.'

Sitting in the damp camp ground, the Kate Plus Eight star then moans: 'I'm hungry.'

In another scene, she jumps and pulls a face as she watches 46 year-old Sarah shooting a rifle.

Sarah is heard cajoling her with the words: 'Come on! It wasn't that bad!'

Maybe looking good by comparison is reason enough to have this type of person on the show. After all Governor Palin is now rich, so she must be a genius.

The first time you camping, even in the back yard as a 9 or 10 year old kid, is very instructive, since your'e no longer warm and dry the way you are indoors. For Kate and her 8, all of whom probably knew nothing about camping and guns, it must have been quite a shock.

I don’t agree... I have about that number... and it seems that they didn’t make me any braver or less brave than women who do not. ..

In today’s world - it’s a “aren’t I special” thing to do.....look at all the publicity the celebrites get for adopting/having liters.... makes me sick when I think of the damaged little ones having to grow up in that fairyland

raising a lot of children in REAL LIFE is 24/7/360 but, I have to say worth every minute, mainly because of the trials and tribulations a family like that goes through... helping one another, crying with one another.. suffering with one another - this stuff is what families are and what bonds them..... that is REAL LIFE... not the TV life where nannies are the moms and the dads come through swinging doors.

Just damn.

Wife & I spent 5 weeks in Alaska this summer, and got to see some great spots.

When the series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” was announced, we anticipated a visual treat of seldom visited parts of Alaska being visited by Palin, sometimes with her family.

Wrongo...it’s no more than Kate and Eight with a mountain in the background...sometimes.

Terribly dissappointing.

Proper title is “Alaska’s Sarah Palin”.

She had twins and wanted more. Went in for fertility treatments and had sextuplets. Found out she loved the attention they brought along with all the freebies so put them all in front of a tv camera. With the publicity, she got a big head. Hubby didn't like the new lord and queen so dumped her. She's continuing to shove her brood down tv viewers throats so probably wrote to Sarah begging to share her camera. Publicity, publicity, publicity. Why the heck Sarah agreed to it is beyond me. But then I never understood why Sarah agreed to go on the Perky One or Oprah. Kate makes me sick so I may have to forego that episode of her Alaska.

No, it is not GE Theater, but it isn’t “Bedtime for Bonzo” either. Sarah Palin is not Ronald Reagan, but she sure is making the Liberals/Progressive/Statists crazy as he did. After I raise $500K in my own PAC and have two best selling books, I’ll think about critizing her. For now, please pass the popcorn! ;-)

Millions of people are seeing Sarah and her family living conservative values. They are showing there is nothing wrong with hard work and being able to provide all the requirements of life for your family without stealing money from strangers.

When you see them fish and hunt, that is Alaska foodstamps.

How many million people have seen and read (Sarah's show and 2 best sellers) Jim Demint's stuff? On that basis who is doing more to promoted the cause?

All that tells me is that she is a media star, and I do appreciate her support for promoting conservative values. But DeMint is a warrior fighting in the trenches to destroy liberalism in government. I'll take the latter any day.

Everyone that is logical and not afflicted with an almost fatal case of PDS must realize that Kate Plus 8 and Sarah Palin’s Alaska are both TLC shows,therefore just like on same network Comedy or Drama Series, they have their Stars guest on the Shows. This is usually a contract thing when you sign to do the Series.

Kate plus eight is going down the tubes, and I am sure that this was TLC’s way of trying to bump up the declining numbers.

I have noticed lately that some freepers especially the unmanly,non grownups have been very snooty,snotty,unrealistically nasty and cynical.

These people are so wacked and such nit picking experts that they could probably win a gold star or blue ribbon for picking the fly crap out of pepper.

Exactly. It’s people that believe that there is a god and that they aren’t him. Look at who is procreating in this country. It’s family minded, conservative, homeschooling Christians. The little families send momma out to work so they can buy more toys and force the state to educate the children in oirder to keep them out of the way. It’s all short term thinking.

I'm not sure why Sarah Palin decided to take Kate Gosselin and her eight children on an Alaskan camping trip for the TV cameras but I do know that, at this point, for some, mostly the left and some anti-Palin 'conservatives' (that seem to want RINO Romney as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012 and don't want Sarah Palin getting in his way) it doesn't really matter what Sarah Palin does or says, they'll find something to whine about and pretend that whatever it is (a) automatically disqualifies her as a 'serious' contender for the presidency or, (b) it 'proves' that the woman is stupid and uninformed and so, not qualified to be a serious contender for the presidency. That about covers it.

Fortunately, these folks are a distinct minority on FR but, like flies at a picnic, annoying, especially when they get hysterical and claim that the 'Palinbots' want to stifle their voices. Yeah, right. We see how ridiculous that is. The anti-Palin posters on FR never miss a chance to parrot the left-wing's anti-Palin Talking Points ("she's stupid"). I expect this nonsense will only intensify as we get closer to the next presidential election and Sarah Palin's nomination as the Republican candidate for President of the United States. It'll be fun to watch liberal's heads explode and see the usual influx of phony 'conservatives' pouring into FR to bash Palin as 'unelectable', 'extreme', and, all together now: 'stupid'. Fortunately, that lie didn't work when it was used against Ronald Reagan in 1980 and it won't work on Sarah Palin in 2012.

From a strategic standpoint I wouldn't think this would be a good idea.

However you might notice, there are no liberals trying to demonize Jim DeMint.

Of course. Anyone who thinks a reality show for potential presidential aspirants is (ahem) un-presidential, must be "unmanly" or immature.

You know you don't have much of an argument to make, when you begin your argument with an insult.

That is bogus. There are alternative candidates like DeMint, who I think can/will be persuaded if the opportunity presents. Sliming anyone who won't drink the koolaid like you just did, doesn't make you look very good.

This is shades of 2008, where the Ducanphytes attacked people like myself who supported Fred Thompson. If the truth be known it is probably the same foam frothing crowd who can't accept dissent within our own brethren.

"However you might notice, there are no liberals trying to demonize Jim DeMint."

Precisely how is DeMint going to be "demonized" (your word, not mine)?

DeMint is an earnest working politician who says intelligent, but conservative things in one of the country's most prestigious deliberative bodies. There's not a whole lot to make fun of there. Palin, OTOH, darn nearly writes the late-night jokes for them.

If Jim DeMint stars in his own reality show, or when one of his kids poses for the cover of US Weekly, or competes on Star Search or the like, I suspect will see some "demonetization". Until then, what's there to say about DeMint?

Palin is a target, because she's comedy gold.
