Oh. My. Todd. Palin to Appear on Game Show.
(Please let this be photoshopped)
Alaska’s former First Dude, Todd Palin, has been trying to get his own TV show for some time now. It may surprise you, but he has not met with success thus far. His wife, of course, tormented us all with pretending to “shoot a gun” on a caribou hunt, pretending to “climb a dangerous mountain,” float past a dangerous bear, and show that she is better suited for camping in the rain than city girl celebrities with dozens of children in tow – also known as “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”
His daughter Bristol even has her own show now, called “Life’s a Tripp” named after her son – a member of the “XY chromosome TR name” club along with his uncles Track, and Trig. Here’s a preview of the show in which the former first daughter gets a “job” volunteering, and chronicles her voyage of personal discovery to Los Angeles to film a TV show about chronicling her voyage of personal discovery to Los Angeles.
Willow, says Bristol, “has no idea the pressure that I’m under.” Bristol, says Willow, “thinks the world revolves around her, but it doesn’t.”
Clearly that latter part is true, because the world clearly revolves around Bristol, “the World’s Most Famous Teen Mom.”
I smell Emmy!
But, back to Todd.
He may not have ranked important enough in the national celebrity consciousness to have his very own show, but he will be participating in a Game Show, hosted by General Wesley Clark.
Yes. I just said that.
Don’t worry, it’s not a quiz show, where Todd Palin will have to showcase his dazzling intellect, razor sharp wit, and brilliant command of eclectic trivia to slay his foes with his lethally astute grey matter. It’s something even better.
The show will be called “Stars Earn Stripes” and is described thus:
“The series features celebrities pairing up with law enforcement and military officers, with the celebs later put to the test in challenges to see what they learned from their mentors.”
Since Todd Palin is not a military officer, nor a law enforcement officer, we can only assume he is the “celebrity.” In this case, he himself could be teamed up with a law enforcement officer. The mind reels.
Off the top of my head, I can think of no person with more open contempt and disdain for law enforcement officers than Todd Palin… with the exception, perhaps, of Schaeffer Cox. Palin’s unhinged obsession with one of them (his ex-brother-in-law Alaska State Trooper Mike Wooten) resulted in his wife being found guilty of abusing her power as governor by letting his inappropriate obsessive behavior go unchecked, and ultimately in his own censure when he was found in contempt of the Alaska State Senate for failing to appear to discuss his aforementioned inappropriate obsessive behavior. But Wooten wasn’t the only one. Palin was an equal opportunity law enforcement disdainer, including the fact that they belong to one of those dang unions. You know… organized labor, like the union Todd and Sarah used to belong to that they don’t want you to remember.
We’ll get to see the premiere later this summer where Todd and his new BFF law enforcement officer will get to perform missions “inspired by real military exercises.” Nothing like a reality show inspired by … real things.
All that aside, I find myself curious about the law enforcement officer that gets to be Todd’s BFF for the show. No word if it will be an Alaska State Trooper, but we can always hope.
