TLC just released the trailer for Sarah Palin’s new reality show, titled Sarah Palin’s Alaska . It screens like a Patagonia commercial, showing off the former governor in her natural habitat, hiking through snowy ridges, backpacking, and kayaking (presumably on the way to Russia). The 30-second teaser is also littered with inspirational Palinese sayings like, "Why can’t people just be satisfied with tranquility?" and "I’d rather be out here than in some stuffy political office." Is that so? Good! We’re so glad to hear that.
