Commercial For Sarah Palin’s New Reality Show is Possibly the Most Ridiculous Thing You’ll See Today

palin-reality-showHas there ever been someone in politics who’s more of a walking  caricature of everything that’s ridiculous about the party for which they represent?  She’s someone who couldn’t even finish an entire term as Governor of Alaska, yet somehow she’s a “hero” for conservatives.

Nothing quite like portraying yourself as the “party for personal responsibility” by idolizing a quitter who didn’t live up to her responsibilities.

Nearly everything Sarah Palin says or does is absolutely ridiculous.  I’ve passed the point of loathing her and have now reached the point of laughing at most things she says or does.  A trend that continued when I ran across the trailer for her new show, Amazing America.  

While it might not be the most ridiculous thing you’ll see in your lifetime, it’s likely the most ridiculous thing you’ll see today.

Here, take a look:

I absolutely love her quote, “This show is going to highlight that freedom that we get to experience in America.”

The trailer features wrestling, some guy shooting arrows, zip lines, some guy getting gored by a bull, derby racing, rooms full of dead animals and people shooting things – basically it’s a showcase for rednecks.

And that’s what Palin thinks “highlights” our freedoms?  What, the freedom to be complete morons?

While liberals celebrate the relaunch of Cosmos, a show that seeks to educate people on some of the most vital scientific information pertaining to the human race, conservatives will celebrate this pile of garbage.  A show that seeks to pander to the lowest common denominator of the human race.

Liberals look up to an astrophysicist informing us about our origins, conservatives look up to a halfwit quitter to entertain them by showcasing people doing stupid things.

The main solace I take from this show is the fact that a former VP candidate has fallen so far that her “big hit” is some worthless show on a network most people haven’t even heard of (or get through their TV package), that will probably be cancelled within its first two seasons.

But one thing’s for certain – this show will be an absolute joke, and this trailer proves exactly how desperate Sarah Palin is to cling to any kind of “fame” she possibly can.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      one thing I like about palin which I cannot find in ANY OTHER regressive rightwing female (political or TV) is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
      palin: sext yummie body!! all the others? ( Kelly/ Bachmann/ coulter-yuk-/ malkin DOUBLE YUK/ tantaros/perino ETC) flat chested skankbags who no real man truly wants ( unless drunk)
      ====================================================
      now– about those overweight cretins on the right (male)??? wow!! no wonder they hate sexual freedom!!

      • Linda Pacheco

        might want to check the video of her at Liberty University..she looks anorexic

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        if so I will retract my silliness; I mainly write it to annoy regressive tea party trash. If she has any semblance of a figure ( IE: nice natural breasts) I remain hers to ravish. when done I will feed her to sharks here in se ft.lauderdale ( unless she tells me that the whole rightwing thing is a charade just to make her wealthy!!)
        the other rightwingers??? I would rather spank my monkey!!! ( and I have a nice looking girlfriend; her photo now is my avatar)
        I will look up video at liberty univ– thank u!

  • Devil_Dinosaur

    Michelle Bachman is retiring from politics soon, so we need to remember to cherish the republican dingbats we still have left.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      new ones in brood im certain!

  • thesquire1

    You know how all us Europeans claim the US has no ‘class’ ?
    Here’s evidence !

    • Matt

      Sarah Palin only represents the lowest common denominator here in the US.

      • crabjack

        Lowest common denominator, yes, but people like her get voted into high offices each and every election. There are a lot of people who worship the lowest common denominator.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        worship=== pay/tithe

      • LF

        and a lot of people who dont

    • Hope2002

      Anyone ridiculous enough to think Sarah Palin represents the US can’t really be argued with but… Which ridiculous Europeans should we point at as representative of all of the people in those countries? There are plenty of people worldwide that are this stupid. She represents us so well she destroyed her parties chances of winning the presidency. Not exactly an endorsement of her influence here. Mostly we laugh.

      • thesquire1

        To be honest Hope – I was being a little ‘trollish’.
        There are plenty of Americans with Real CLASS and INTELLIGENCE.

        It was aimed at the crazy people who ‘think’ she has those and to point out how she represents them outside the US.
        Can you even imagine her as a ‘diplomat’ ? GASP !

      • MascBlkMale

        Dude, I understood where you were getting at. No need to explain yourself.

      • Casey Henderson

        Right on. *thumbs up* to all.

      • IBCat1

        I can’t even imagine her as someone who procreates . . . and it’s really too bad she did.

      • David Forbes

        Unfortunately, her party has a good chance of winning the next Presidential election, and worse still a better chance of getting control of both the House and the Senate because Liberals/Progressives wont take the trouble to vote. Organize for the Democrats in your Districts before November. We cannot afford the GOP to win anything. Get out the Vote!

      • thesquire1

        There is a major difference in politics in Europe in that TV personalities seldom get voted for and people are much quicker to dump lunatics. That’s why there are so few. Sadly the US GOP seem to be enlisting them and most Europeans see the likes of Palin, Bachmann, Cruz, Gohmert etc and wonder if something is seriously wrong with people who actually cast a VOTE for them – and yet they get elected ?
        Even the worst European politicians are made to look like Einstein when compared to those and a good few more.
        The basis of right-wing politics in the US now is very simple – the major money backs IDIOTS who they can control.
        When we have elections in the UK there are sometimes people who stand as the candidate for the ‘Monster Raving Loony Party’ – they do it for publicity and never expect anyone to vote for them(except by protest) – yet the GOP there IS ELECTING THEM !

    • Casey Henderson

      Now now, you came and read this article, squire, didn’t you?

      THE WRITER OF THIS ARTICLE IS PROOF THAT WE DO HAVE CLASS! 🙂

      • Regina Universe

        Yes, but do those CAPS?

    • IBCat1

      Please try not to judge an entire group of people based on one nut.

    • Guest

      I’m sure you have your share of them.

  • Kathie O

    Hey Sarah, please quit this show too.

  • Avatar

    This is her third stint of reality show. What make the producers believe that third one would be a lucky charm? It’s too embarrassing for me to watch this commercial…

    • ihatepeople

      imo that is what they meant when they said she was the new raygun……she is an actor that promotes corporate interests, nothing more. buy more guns, shoot more siht, burn more fuel, etc….

  • Steve Wascher

    I’ll take your word for it. I couldnt bring myself to play the clip.

    • crabjack

      You should watch it, Steve. It’s really very funny. If someone were to put a lot of thought into parodying Palin, her trailer is exactly what it would look like.

    • Anne Nelson

      I give it one season at best.

  • John

    Uh oh! Move over, Duck Dynasty! #Murika #TeabaggerProblems

  • Dave

    Parents should make their kids watch this……to show them what NOT to be like.

  • Amy

    Duck Dynasty 2.0

  • lindylou

    Help me out here, I’m trying to invent a new card game, sort of a combination of poker, bridge and gin rummy (with the emphasis on gin). Four suits: Palins, Bachmanns, Gomerts, and Pratts. A perfect hand would be 3 of each, and the first one to have them all wins a Cruze. It’s played with two decks, one of them all jokers, mostly Akins and Issas, and have no value. The loser gets a half Romney.

  • Bob

    Amazing America? did she show a clip of the running with the bulls ? Thats in Spain.

  • Eddie Krebbs

    Seriously, this commercial is helping me understand the right. By Palin’s own commercial words, “freedom” means acting like a drunk wahoo and taking part in self-destructive behaviors. This would be opposed to non-freedom which is acting like one lives in a society.

  • Casey Henderson

    Coffee, or beer? Cosmos, or Amazing America? LULZ

  • Sunnysmom

    Reminds me of Rick Perry coming out on stage at CPAC yelling “Yeah, let’s get it up”. It’s the freedom to get America out of the healthcare business, out of the education business, grab your balls and a beer and go hunting with Sarah Palin. That’s the REAL America right? *Facepalm*…

  • Jo Clark

    Phew, I decided I would only watch this for Mr. Clifton because I’m exceedingly fond of his articles and such. I am so thankful that out of 31 seconds, very little of it actually featured the “Screech”.

  • moe/larry & curly keys

    I still want her sexy body for a night,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, then ????

  • Casey Henderson

    She should go into Porn. Then she’d truly be the biggest Star in the history of Stars. And of course, way better than her ‘Reality’ show attempts. Yeah, Porn should be her thing. She’s hot, dumb, delusional, and only has Stardom in her eyes. Yeah baby! Take it all the way, Sarah! LULZ

  • Thea

    You betcha. Shoot’em up, run’em over, enjoy that freedom to be violent and moronic. I can hardly wait.

  • CitizenKochkane

    This show was funny for about 5 minutes when it was called “Jackass”….

  • republic84

    Wait… Don’t you have to actually live IN reality to be part of a reality show?

  • garryej

    zip lines, running with bulls? Racing cars? Only Americans do these things? These people, Palin and her audience, need to travel more!

  • Katherine Walton

    The Sportsman’s Channel? Really? Go Sarah! (hehehe)

  • Jaybird248

    Frightening to think this jingoistic simpletion could have been a heartbeat away from being president.

  • John Collins

    You’re giving her a free ad channel thereby encouraging her with traffic…. you can stop now!

  • JanMutcher

    Evidently, viewers of the “outdoor channel” are rebel flag waving, gun totin, homemade whiskey making rednecks. I will not be watching.

  • Regina Universe

    This makes me so incredibly sad.

  • Nancy Stewart McFarlin

    But you are talking about her and giving her press, STOP IT! That’s all she is, an attention seeker. I know she is the car wreck we think we can’t stop watching but we can and must.

  • mrmiller

    Narcisistic grifter

  • This show looks terrific !! Thank you for promoting it. My DVR is now set!! Don’t wanna miss a minute of this. About time someone offered some counter-programming to the endless idiocy coming out of Hollywood.

  • Lori Farrell

    I am convinced that the tea partiers, the extreme right wing conservatives, are using her as a buffer, a wall so to speak, to be called on when they want a media screen to pull the attention away from republicans’ stupid doings and ignorant rantings. I know she is stupid, that is given, so there has to be a valid reason for her speaking and endorsing their agenda-like that stupid thing she said at the NRA event.
