The Learnin' Channel

TLC has officially jumped the shark. Well, they were headed for the jump for a while. Kind of like KFC, their three letter acronym has no meaning now. They haven't had truly educational programming for years, and their current tagline is "life unscripted." In other words, reality TV.

And in case you haven't heard, the latest addition to their lineup is "Sarah Palin's Alaska." Good god. They should have called it Northern Overexposure or The Beverly Snowbillies.

But whatever they call it, you know this puts Sarah Palin appropriately in the same category as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and that couple with too many kids: pompous, careerist, self promoting, attention whores...

Somebody must have advised Sarah that this would be a lucrative career move. Because I'm confident Mrs. Mooseburger doesn't care about "the story of Alaska," or conservationism. Remember "drill, baby, drill" and her many other anti-environmental stances?

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" will no doubt be another political platform for her violent, stupid, self-righteous babble. Another platform where she can freely use cross-hairs and hunting rhetoric to incite her sicko teabagger followers to do god-knows-what. Hey Sarah, just in case you didn't know, hicks aren't good with subtle imagery:
"The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons — your Big Guns — to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win." — Sarah Palin.
If you can even call that subtle.

I won't be watching "Sarah Palin's Alaska" unless there is an episode where her entire clan is eaten by a pack of wolves.
