TLC and why Palin will never be president -- part 2
Last week I wrote a piece pegged to tonight's TLC pairing of Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin on Palin's "Alaska" reality TV series.
The core of my commentary was that Palin will never be president because she has sold herself too cheap to low-rent reality-TV venues like TLC, and now she is being perceived as another one of the channel's freak moms like Kate Gosselin or the women on the series "I Didn't Know I was Pregant." As the title so coyly suggests, that shows features women who gave birth and claim they didn't know ther were pregant. You can also now lump Palin in with the twisted stage moms of "Toddlers & Tiaras," a show that sexualizes little girls, and the women of "Sister Wives," TLC's celebration of polygamy.
Palin has been reduced to the level of Gosselin by allowing herself to become part of the debased TLC stable of "stars."
Was it really worth a million dollars for Palin to allow herself to be associated with the rest of the folks on this freak show reality-TV channel? Either way, this is the kind of thing that will keep her from ever being president.
Yes,Sarah, Ronald Reagan did have a TV career, too. But it was never with bottom-feeding programs like this.

these people are really reaching and scared to death of President Palin.....Good!!
More trolling, Matt?
Part One here:
TLC and why Palin will never be president
Give it up, dude. You’re an epic fail.
That does not even make sense. You can not take a network and compare every show as if they are interlinked in some way. For example, NCIS is on CBS and Katie Couric is on CBS. Mark Harmon would never be compared to Katie Couric and vice versa just because they are on the same network or their shows would not be compared either.
She’s lives in their heads 24/7. They can’t get enough of her.
another reason why Matt Braynard will never be read by more than 50 people...part 17
The TLC may be enhancing her pocketbook, but I don’t think that it is either enhancing or harming her presidential chances.
Sooooo much effort by sooooo many people telling us she can’t win. It does make you wonder.
Well, she had her father on last week and again this week.
>>>Shes lives in their heads 24/7.
Dank, dark, lonely places since they’re otherwise empty.

I watched one of Palin’s episodes last night and was pleasantly surprised with it as a matter of getting a good look at Alaska, its people and the Palin family. But I agree that too much of the reality television formula detracts from Sarah’s credibility if she runs for President. It feeds into her critics’s claim that she is an inexperienced, empty-headed lightweight.
I don’t understand why she did the show. Yes, it gives her publicity and lots of cash.
Most politicians go hunting during election time to show the midwest that they are ‘normal’ people. (thinking of Kerry hunting and wearing his Carhart barn coat while campaigning) But I think Americans already get the Palin hunting thing. So what new information did it give Americans?
Plus, I don’t think the Kate Gosselin connection is going to help her.
I think she has done herself a lot of good with her show. I wish her dad would get his own show.
I suppose you believe that Sarah Palin should act like mittens; IE, be so boring and tedious that no one wants to pay attention to you.
Of course, if you want a more objective picture of what Sarah Palin’s documentary means, you could try Huffington post or one of the other liberal sites. They are clearly frightened that Sarah is connecting with the American people in a very effective manner. How do we know this is happening? A recent poll by Rasmussen showed that 52% of the American people say that Sarah Palin’s values are closer to their own. In the same poll only 40% said the current bench warmer in the White House was closer to their views.
And, it should be noted that no amount of shilling will make Romney acceptable. Period.

Myth: You can get Congress to balance a budget if you locked them all in for a week and don't give them any extra food or water.
Test it out to find if it's plausible.

You’ve really become the new pissant, haven’t you?
The video at the link was kinda funny. It slams Kate Grosslin way more than Sarah...(basically they are blaming Sarah for having this annoying woman on her show)
We know this was probably TLC’s bargaining chip to get the show, as Sarah had been shopping the idea around with little result. (Libs didn’t want to help promote her in any way)
So I can see Sarah agreeing to do this, knowing she has editorial control and the other episodes were all going to be epic.
She has spent this year reintroducing herself and her family ot America. The next year will be spent sharpening her issue stances with policy speeches and editorials, along with trips abroad to visit other world leaders.
This is a brilliant strategy she has been working to perfection. Her detractors have no idea what is about to come their way...
Even if their opinions are different than mine, if they’re well written, I like to read them. But this guy has nothing worthwhile to say. He makes just 1 point in 2 articles: It was not a shrewd move for her to have a program on TLC. Weak and verbose is a lousy combintion.
And calling here Sarah rather than Sarah Palin, Palin or Gov. Palin illustrates that he harbors some bias. Or maybe I’m wrong. Perhaps he routinely wrote of 0bama as Barack and Romney as Mitt and so on.
Sarah is a intelligent and honorable woman and very magnetic. I love her show and I never watch anything but news and sports.This guy gets the hook.
True, but in Reagan's time, "bottom-feeding programs" were not the opiate of the masses. Reagan's time was when values had values!
If she is such a nothing, then why are they bothering with her?
I wasn’t happy hearing that wacko Kate would be on the show but then learned it might have been a contractual thing with TLC. After seeing the previews with all the whining Kate does, I think this is going to prove a good move by Palin. Can’t wait for the show tonight.
This is my favorite show
You have absolutely no credibility at FR. You've proven repeatedly that you are dishonest and deceitful. I'd believe David Axelrod and Rham Emanuel before you.
Why not move to Kos full time? You'd be a better fit there.
From your post, I can’t even find out who’s Pregant. And who’s not.
Are you logged on?
She needs to rerun it on the Outdoor channel. It gives folks a glimpse at the Last Frontier, Palin style.
Trolling Matt? Keep it up and your destruction on FR is certain. You can take it to the bank.
About people getting the Palin hunting thing, don’t forget, there is that twit Levi Johnston out there saying she doesn’t hunt, has never hunted, other such empty assertions, so I think it was good to put the lie to those. Also, the show is watched by her detractors as well, not just her supporters. Her supporters accepted that she hunts. Now, everybody does.
I agree that the Gosselin association seems like it would hurt more than help.
Heh, Myth busters, maybe they can figure out if Zero is an American or Kenyan ;)
Did this fool make these kind of comments when Obama appeared
On the BET/MTV nets ?
