Sarah Palin, Kate Gosselin & Kids Going Camping Together?

Heard this on the radio this morning. Can anyone take Sarah Palin seriously as a politician after this?

If Sarah is really considering a future in politics she should duck around with a prick bitch who *most* people feel is an abusive, inconsiderate, selfish tripe of a cow who favored money over her marriage, children's livelihood and their overall wellbeing.

She'd throw Sarah and her whole family under the bus in a heartbeat if she thought it would net her more $$$.

Who the hell is Kate Gosselin?

"Kate plus 8" or whatever the show is - they have 9 kids, a reality tv show and went through a publicised divorce deal last year.

Please,....

What would Palin have to do for you (and the rest of her haters) to ever take her seriously.

She threatens you and your lifestyle choices and you'll stop at nothing to destroy her and her support.

At least be straight up about it.

She could never regain my support. But that's largely because I'm no longer an uninformed voter - I now have strong opinions on what I support. but in some ways she's earned the term 'idiot' just like Bush did.

I do give her reps - she was a good Mayor of Wasilla in some regards and she *is* economically savvy to a point. But she also played her various positions like Spongebob gone Hall Monitor!!! for the day - bringing people's "loyalty" into question, siding with people based on their relationship with her and trying to control her people *too* much. . . hindering their freedoms far too much for my taste. Of course there were the dramas: toopergate and so on - I disaprove of her actions in such situations.

Overall - she created so many fickle situations for herself that she ended up having to resign.

Ultimate stupidity. While she's knowledgable in some ways - her inability to recognize "the line" and then "not cross the line" is quite stark. . . and that makes an idiot, in my opinion.

Sweet mother of god. Just when I thought reality TV could get no lower.

Well, I never took her seriously in the first place, because she's a joke.

I certainly don't feel threatened by her, because I know for a fact that there is absolutely zero chance of her ever being president, or even VP.

I'm not saying it has anything to do with her ability as a politician. I'm saying that it might be difficult to take her seriously as a politician after this retarded reality tv stunt.

I am having difficulty finding the words to express my infinite indifference to this news.

At any rate, Palin is not a candidate for any public office at this time, nor do I think there are any serious plans for her to run in 2012. Why she continues to garner so much attention despite this is beyond me.

Those are mutually exclusive statements. If you don't take her seriously as a politician after camping with a reality TV star, than clearly you do think such an action impacts her political ability. Not to mention that celebrity endorsements are a classic pr stunt successfully used by many "serious" politicians.

IMO Sarah Palin turned in her serious politician card when she quit as governor. She and her family stepped into reality type of personalities a long time ago. Such a disappointment.

Having said that, as usual the Huffington Post is making something out of nothing. The lead in the article says she "might" go camping, not that she will be. Anyone can say anyone might be doing anything with nothing to back it up.

Even as a lover of juicy gossip, I cannot understand this: why does anyone care about this??

This pretty much par for the course when you consider the popularity of celebrity gossip. The real question is that why is this tripe infesting our hallowed halls at DP?

When you come upon a car accident along the highway do you not slow down and try to look over at the scene?
She has become a clown act and even more intriguing is how many of you take her seriously.

I believe she has plenty to offer as a politician despite some of her quirks. (James Trafficant, Bawney fwank, Robert Byrd come to mind) She would just be one more odd character in the bunch.

If she's on the ballott,... I'll vote that ticket "if nor no other reason" than the fact that she's so hated and opposed by our common political foes.

Obama is just as much of a clown, and it is just as ludicrous that some still take him seriously.

Palin was never a serious politician, and with regards to the story:

I just can't bring myself to care unless it's to make a porno.

Then I care.

Very much.

:lol:

This statement is objectively false.

I'd rather go camping with Sarah Palin than hunting with Dick Cheney.

Yeah, but even a whorehouse wouldn't be cool if someone walked in and starting banging a camel. Low standards are still standards. DP may be a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but we have to draw the line at reality television.

Well, yes, the fear of immediate death is reduced with Palin. But that's like saying you'd rather have cancer than ebola.
