Really (As in Extremely) Bogus

I'm trying very hard to figure out how a lot of this "reality" shit gets concocted. Like with this whole "Sarah Palin's Alaska" stuff - what, pray tell, was going through the minds of THOSE producers? Was it, folks, essentially along the lines of, "Hm, let's see, what can we do to make this individual look more appealing to the Republican base, all of those clingers/tea-partiers out there, etc.?...Hey, I got it. Let's have her go on this hunting trip....with a bunch of dudes and have her blow away some poor unassuming moose. I mean, it'll be easy. We can have some of our flunkies flush the moose out into the open and BOOM!...Oh and, YES, we can punctuate the whole thing by having her high-five the fellas'. Perfect, no?"? Or was it just to frigging titillate, in general? I just can't frigging decide here.....................................................................................................Yeah, I'm probably better off not knowing, huh?

Beats the hell out of me, I'm convinced most television producers are demons or space aliens.

I don't know about you and my other colleagues, double b, but I'm personally a hard-core animal lover. And to see how cavalierly that this individual will blow away a creature truly grosses me out. And then there's that whole high-fiving thing. It's disgusting.

^What he said. All she needs to do now is shoot a lawyer then tell somone like Rachel Maddow to go fuck herself and she'll complete the trifecta.

Just once I'd like to see Palin get gored by a moose. Now THAT is good TV.

See does that and it'll guarantee my vote!

Sorry, I got excited at the thought...

The thing is, Volt/CDM, if she had killed the moose and then ate it with her family, THAT wouldn't have bothered me anywhere near as much (hell, hunting is actually a much more humane way to get your meat than buying it in the store). But this was basically a photo-op.

It was'nt a moose...it was a caribou.
