Sarah Palin VS Reality.

This is one of those 'Whatever shall I blog about today?' moment. But I believe that I shall eschew Mags Wente's strategy, described by balbulican in the combox after this blogpost.

The time-honoured tradition here at DJ! when drawing a blank is to ask oneself: WWSD? So I searched her name on Google News.

There's a lot of material to mine there. Where to start? Palin asking $1 million per episode of reality series? Or about this, from here:

Sarah Palin, a woman who's never allowed a deep thought to get between her brain and her tongue, recently remarked how her family in Alaska "used to hustle on over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse... and I think, isn't that kind of ironic now. Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada."

Yeah, how ironic. The former governor of Alaska holds out our healthcare system as a nightmare example of the Nanny State morphing into the Big Bad Welfare Wolf. Palin's Tea Party fan base has slammed the Obama administration for its efforts to reform the broken U.S. health care system.

Goaded over the past two years by the Fox News network and rage radio shock-jocks like Rush Limbaugh, they have gathered across the U.S. for oxymoronic protests against federal plans to "socialize" Medicare--a government-run program kept afloat by taxpayer dollars. The tentative
inclusion of a rider in the health care reform bill, which would require at least one meeting between doctors and family to address the wishes of a loved one in terminal condition, was somehow transformed into "death panels" intent on heaving grandma into a casket as fast as possible.

But back to the notion of a reality show scripted and based upon Sa-wah's concept of Alaska.


Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too.

Poor Nanookie! I wonder if she still needs to hunt down and kill big game to feed her starving family. Oh, wait a minute... I bet she didn't eat those wolves she shot from the plane. The woman makes my skin crawl.

Did you see the numbers showing that there's no clear front-runner in the 2012 Republican field? Romney@28%, Huckabee@24%, and Palin@23%. She'll consider that a sign from God that she's still adored. Palin/Bachmann! Palin/Bachmann! Palin/Bachmann!

Nanookie! How deliciously rude. Thank you, Mrs. Bitch

My preference for 2012 is Beck/Bachman. Nanookie should be Secretary of State since she's seen Russia and been to Canada and all.
