New Reality TV Show: “Kate Plus Hate”

Palin and Gosselin

CNN reports, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” saw a major drop in ratings after its first episode aired, but we’re guessing this Sunday’s show may spark a bit more interest. A guest appearance by Kate Gosselin and her eight children can’t hurt, right?

The December 5 episode of Palin’s TLC reality show features the two famous families as they embark on an Alaskan camping trip and UsMagazine.com has a first look at the promo for the upcoming episode.

“She’s going to rely on me to protect her,” Palin says of Kate, who shares that she has “never camped for real.” The look of horror on Kate’s face as she watches the former governor shoot a rifle gives her away.

“Our ruggedness is really a mystery to people in the lower 48,” Palin adds with a smile.

Lynnrockets believes the two erstwhile campers could improve ratings by merging their shows. Could it be called “Kate Plus Hate”?

HIT ‘EM WITH YOUR BEST SHOT

(sung to the Pat Benatar song “Hit me With Your Best Shot”)

Well she’s a real tough cookie in the mean G.O.P.
A bitch without a heart; that is Sarah P.
She hates Dems and she’s gonna prove it
Just like the Duke, she’s gonna come out shootin’

Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Let’s start to shoot Dems with our best shot!
Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Fire away!

A slimy, lying moron, losing her hair
She plays the game but she don’t play fair
Blamed her loss on John McCain
But she flushed him right down the drain

Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Let’s start to shoot Dems with our best shot!
Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Fire away!

(musical interlude)

A political rookie with a poor history
She can see Russia from her balcony
Palin just took another gun from her rifle case
She’s gonna shoot a Democrat in the face

Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Let’s start to shoot Dems with our best shot!
Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Fire away!

Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Let’s start to shoot Dems with our best shot!
Hit ‘em with your best shot!
Fire away!

Romney Quietly Outraising Palin

Look Who's Smiling Now

Not a day goes by when we do not hear something about the amazing Sarah Palin and her unstoppable technicolor quest for the presidency. The former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska is a shameless self-promoter who utilizes every form of the “lamestream media” (which she so frequently criticizes) to ceaselessly keep herself in the spotlight. She has a paid position with Fox News and appears thereon whenever she pleases. She has a reality television series in which she has the opportunity to espouse her political beliefs on a weekly basis. She releases ghost-written books and goes on a cross-country book signing tour every year. She appears regularly as a guest on conservative talk radio programs and she sends out an endless barrage of Facebook posts and Twitter tweets over the internets tubes. In short, Sarah Palin appears more often in the print media, television media, radio media and internet media than any person in America other than perhaps Justin Bieber. A curious fact when you consider that only two short years ago she criticized then candidate Barack Obama for being a celebrity.

One thing that the American public will not learn about Sarah Palin from all of her media over-exposure however, is that in the all important money raising race, she is losing. Palin sent waves through the political world earlier this week when Time reported that she raised $469,000 from October 13th through November 22nd. Problem is, during that same period, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has quietly hauled in more than $558,000. Romney has always been a strong fundraiser but has remained under the radar during that time period compared to Palin with her TV show and her daughter’s run on “Dancing With The Stars.” Nevertheless, despite his low profile, Romney has proven that he can out-raise Palin even when she is at her highest profile. To add insult to injury, Romney appeared on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Wednesday and took a jab at Palin by saying that he could not imagine quitting as governor. Needless to say, none of this bodes well for the “Queen of Quit”.

How long before her retort on Facebook or Twitter?

LIVIN’ LA VIDA LOCO

(sung to the Ricky Martin song “Livin’ La Vida Loca”)

She’s into superstitions, witch mass and voodoo dolls
I feel a premonition Sarah wants to break some balls
She’s into impregnations, no “safe sex” for the far right
She needs an intervention most every day and night

She’ll take you wolf hunting while you are shooting from a plane
She’ll try to live her crazy life as it goes right down the drain
Like she did to John McCain

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco

Woke up in New York City in a funky chic hotel
She got her start with SarahPAC money
Her mantra still is  “Drill Baby Drill”
Had a pregnant teen daughter, condemns safe-sex just the same
If you’re related to her, you’ll want to change your name
Yeah, she has gone quite insane

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco

She’ll take you wolf hunting while you are shooting from a plane
She’ll try to live her crazy life as it goes right down the drain
Like she did to John McCain

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco
