Palin’s Going “Rogue” TV
I know what you’re thinking when you make your daily pilgrimage to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page. You stare at your screen with a Crunch Wrap Supreme and Diet Redbull clicking “refresh” compulsively, waiting to be the first to capture the lustrous pearls of wisdom that fall like glistening acid raindrops from the unhinged jaw of the former half governor. You think to yourself, “If only I could capture this experience on video!” Seeing a picture of word salad just isn’t the same as being able to watch and listen. Printed words don’t deliver the jutting jaw, the pursed lips, that tone of voice, the waggling skeletal finger of contempt, the abandoned nest of hair.
Well, pine no more, Palinbots. This is your lucky day.
Sarah Palin will be launching her own digital video channel, tentatively called “Rogue TV,” said a source close to the project. “Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page.” Yes, think of it.
And who deserves the credit for applying the media cardiac paddles to the exhausted Palin brand?
Tapp? No, you haven’t missed the birth of a new male Palin child.
The channel will be available through Tapp, the digital video service founded by former CNN chief Jon Klein and former NBC Universal entertainment executive Jeff Gaspin. Subscriptions will cost $10 per month.
Rogue is expected to launch in April or May, and it would be one of the first of the digital channels offered by Tapp.
Palin’s channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues.
Also, plan to enjoy footage of Palin and her family home in
Arizona Alaska. It will also feature advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. One can only imagine.
“Sure you can go camping with a boy, honey. Whatever you do, don’t forget the wine coolers!”
“This is the classic Rice Krispy treat recipe found on the side of the box. Don’t be fooled by imitations.”
There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin – all for the low, low price of $10 a month. So make sure to stow away some of that folding money so you don’t have to miss a single word. The channel is tentatively scheduled to launch in April or May.
