The final episode of "Sarah Palin sees Alaska for the very first time" gives off a scent of desperation. Update!
Well it looks like disappointment ahead for those who expected Palin's political advertisement/reality show to go out with a bang.
It almost feels that this episode where they scrape the bottom of the sea looking for gold could be a metaphor to describe the show scraping the bottom of the barrel to look for interesting content. You can almost hear the production meeting now.
Producer:"Well let's see we went dog mushing, clubbed a halibut to death, murdered Rudolph, and complained about a nosy neighbor. What other Alaskana things can we possibly do?
SP: "Well I could take my family out panning for gold."
Producer: "Is there a lot of gold left to be found around Alaska?"
SP: "Well no, but just imagine how cute Piper will look as she fails to find any."
Producer: "Ah who gives a fuck, we might as well. Whose idea was this crappy show anyhow?"
SP: "You, are going on my list Mr. Producer-man!"
But hey on the upside, if you have a friend or family member who is thinking of voting Republican in 2012, you can buy them the show on DVD and scare them liberal. See what I did there? I took a dark cloud and found the silver lining.
Back in the real world there is some brand new scandal brewing about the Palins that has media types clamoring for information. I am not able to provide any real information yet, but this one is both nasty and naughty, and it had my phone ringing off the hook with calls from gossip magazines yesterday.
Let's just say that the sordid underbelly of Wasilla is about to be exposed.
I do not know WHEN it will come out, but I have to imagine it will be very soon.
Update: Well I guess this "Dirk Diggler" received the same e-mail that the rest of us did.
Yes this is what I was alluding to earlier. However let me say that I have NO idea how much of this is valid yet.
I did do some checking, and sure enough Shailey Tripp (Interesting last name no?) WAS charged with prostitution in Wasilla back in March of this year, and she IS listed as a licensed massage therapist in Wasilla. I also called some contacts in Wasilla, but none of them seemed to know much about this.
There have been all kinds of rumors about the Palins INCLUDING that Todd was getting a little on the side, but I had never heard about prostitutes or massage therapists before. However at least one of the tabloids that contacted me yesterday said they had already been following a similar story.
This could be a solid story, or simply idle gossip, I make no claims as to its accuracy, only that it is heating up Wasilla as we speak.
