The world just got a first glimpse of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s return to reality TV.
“America: prepare to be amazed,” Palin beams in the promotion video for her new reality TV show, “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.”
The show, which premieres on the Sportsman Channel on April 3 at 8 p.m., will tell the stories of the American outdoors lifestyle.
Palin will take viewers into “Red, Wild, and Blue America,” highlighting people and places that exemplify the American Spirit, according to the network. The promo video, which was released Thursday, features Palin’s silhouette as she struts her stuff in front of an American flag. Quotations about Palin’s charm, complexity, and news making ability from the media flash on the screen.
I've made no secret about my lack of respect for Mrs. Palin and/or her various presentations.
To paraphrase an Aaron Sorkin script line, "I think she's a .22 caliber mind in a .357 world."
And I have done more than my fair share of potshooting at her.
Her latest "project", meanwhile, may have tickled the right side of her fan club's fancy, but all it did for me was inspire a notion.
For someone who has made a personally profitable, home based business out of running around the country, and the networks, forecasting the momentarily imminent end of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness resulting from the potent cocktail of Muslim based Satanism that is the Obama Administration, Sarah sure seems to be calm enough about the imminence of that imminent end to feel free to take time away from building that underground survival bunker, complete with a guest room for Ted Nugent, to gits herself yet another TV show extolling the virtues and spirit of a country she tells us, out of the other side of her mouth, is moments away from a virtual director's cut of A Clockwork Orange.
But, all we need is love, love, so since love is all we need, here's my offer.
I promise to stop making fun of you, stop ridiculing your commentary, your presentations, your transparently pitiful attempts to turn fifteen minutes of fame into a nine hour mini-series, in fact, I will stop saying anything about you in any kind of public forum, either in print or in person.
If, in return for that consideration, you promise that if there has been no American Armageddon, the underground bunker has proved unneeded (except for Nugent who will, by then, have no where else to go) and, warts and all, the Republic still stands on January 21st, 2016, you will never again open your mouth in any kind of public forum, in print, on line, on the air or in person.
My hope is that you will view this offer as measured and reasonable.
My guess is that you couldn't accept the terms if you wanted to with all your heart.
Because it would require that you say nothing.
When you have made your entire professional existence about doing just that.
Then again, it is, however unlikely, that I have misjudged you.
I am "prepared to be amazed."
