The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has a half-life that has remarkable longevity. And, what political survival skills too! Do you know what else has a remarkable longevity and survival skills? Cockroaches.
Sarah has a new show, "Amazing America With Sarah Palin," premiering in April. If you need to know down to the exact second when it will grace your television set, you can go to the show’s website, which has a ridiculous countdown clock. This time, Sarah isn't on TLC, she’s been demoted to something called The Sportsman Channel which sounds like something a dad watches on Saturday afternoon when he’s avoiding shoveling the snowy driveway, staring vaguely at an endless parade of fishing shows.
Coming in April - Episode #1: Squirrel hunting with automatic weapons. Grift Dynasty, indeed.
Let’s take a moment to remember that terrible, horrible, no good very bad thing, that Katie Couric did to Sarah asking her which newspapers she read:
"How many of God's Creatures did you slaughter, Ms Palin?" "All of them, Katie."
And generates a new tag line.."Can't watch TV." Is this a spin-off of Duck Dismally?
