Sarah Palin

I didn't think it was possible to find a show dumber than my own, but Sarah Palin's Alaska has proven me wrong. In every episode she is either fishing, beating a fish to death or taking aim at an innocent caribou. As if all of that isn't horrible enough to watch, next week Kate Gosselin and her eight children are joining the Palins for a camping trip. I'm on the edge of my toilet seat in anticipation of the episode, so I was thrilled to come across a preview showing what kind of action goes down when you mix dumb with asshole. As assumed, Kate did not have a great time. She complains about the cold, the lack of hand sanitizer and the bears. Palin finds it all very amusing, which just solidifies that she is a nightmare. For once I am on Kate Gosselin's side. I understand that people like to camp, and I don't hold that against them. I personally would rather spend the night naked in a hotel bathroom while Charlie Sheen tries to find his watch by performing a cavity search on me, but to each his own. The moment when Kate finally snaps is when she discovers that the hot dogs they are all enjoying are made from moose. Between that and Palin taking out a deer on last week's episode so that she could have "meat for the winter," the only thing this show is teaching us is that Alaska needs to open a chain of grocery stores.
