Sarah Palin TV Show canceled due to lack of reality

Rate: 4 Flag

SILVER SPRING, Md. – Discovery Communications has announced that it has been forced to cancel the upcoming reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” after it was learned that Palin ran out of reality almost two years ago. The eight-part documentary series was to star the ex-Governor Palin and her home state of Alaska and was slated to premiere on TLC, and executive produced by Emmy-award winner Mark Burnett of Survivor and Apprentice fame.

“We knew we were in trouble during the first episode when we saw a polar bear just standing there, checking his watch and waiting for reality to kick back in,” said Burnett. “And everywhere you looked there were confused and bored puffins.”

Palin released a brief statement on Facebook which, while trying to explain the problem, only served to showcase the reality issues.

“Palling around with terrorists. You betcha. Wink,” wrote Palin. “Track. Russia. Salmon. Hunt. Guns. McCain.”

TLC President and General Manager Eileen O’Neill said she was disappointed the series would not be able to air.

“We were confident ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ would be compelling television, but there was just no reality there whatsoever,” said O’Neill. “In the end, it just wasn’t fair to our audience or the puffins.”

All of that hokey,' Aw,shucks' mentality is grating on the nerves of the nation-the sane ones that is. The fact that she starts lies, spreads them, and then blames it on the main stream media would be laughable-if there were not so many people who actually believe her. Her problem is being the product of a dumbed down eduacation and that is what she wishes on the rest of us! Elitist-why would I want someone smart running the country when we could have Ms. Ineptitude in high heels to run it!
Sorry about the typo-education!
I thought it was going to be an educational reality show. Someone educating her on reality. Oh Well! LMAO!
Reality? Sarah Palin?
I'm almost expecting Palin's show to be like Jimbo and Ned's hunting show on South Park.
