Well we should have known Sarah Palin doesn’t have a clue on anything when she said she could see Russia from her house. Because in her limited point of view, she thinks that qualifies her to be deal with Russia and be President. So anything that she says or does should be taken with several several grains of salts so you can try to choke it down.

Sheeeesh! The author has never fished for salmon in Alaska. It’s called “combat fishing” - anyone with a fly rod would be ejected from the river and left for bear snacks. And you can’t see Russia from Wasilla but you can see Russian territory from Alaskan territory.

Sarah Palin didn’t say it, Tina Fey did.

She seems to be a total fabrication.

On 27 seconds, meanwhile, you will see Palin stand bolt upright in the boat. This is unsafe, likely destabilise the vessel, and something that anyone who’s spent significant amounts of time on water would simply never do. Especially when they’re a few yards from a potentially-dangerous bear and their children are also in the flat-bottomed craft.


Someone had the still pic from this up yesterday, and I remember thinking it showed incredibly poor judgment on her part to stand up in the boat, with your kids, next to bears.

Well she didn’t say it verbatim, but it’s what she is implying. mediaite.com

If your aim is maximum death, fly fishing is a bit subtle.

In the middle of the Bering Strait are two small, sparsely populated islands: Big Diomede, which sits in Russian territory, and Little Diomede, which is part of the United States. At their closest, these two islands are a little less than two and a half miles apart, which means that, on a clear day, you can definitely see one from the other.

Sarah Palin is an incredibly dangerous modern-day Know-Nothing. But there’s no need to make shit up about her— the truth is scary enough.

Far be it from me to defend Palin, but if you must criticize her do it over something substantial. Of the three charges here, the sloppy load of the shotgun seems to be the only worthy of mentioning.

Everyone stands in flat bottom riverboats in Alaska, they are big, long, and pretty stable and they are not the thin little flat bottoms people use in bass ponds in the states. I’ve poled one that way for miles up a shallow tundra bog to get the moose meat out for instance.

There are two main methods to catch salmon upriver - and fly fishing is not among them. The first way is available if you are native or part native: you put out a gill net or fish wheel. The second for non natives is you use a treble hook red spinning lure with a rod and reel. The reasons are simple. When Salmon run up river they are spawning. They don’t swim near the surface except to leap obstacles. They swim 6 to 10 feet deep where ever possible and will not stop to eat at all. The only thing they will strike at is egg sacs of other salmon. Hence the red spinning lure…

I actually liked the first episode.

I rather hate that she is using already starting her campaign.

I rather hate that she is showing a false image of herself frolicking stupidly in the very land she wants to despoil.

re: #12 Thanos

I agree. I can’t stand Palin. But I can still bare her… partially because I believe her to be utterly unelectable, and therefore no real threat. But some people are nit-picking and making themselves look obsessed in the process. Yesterday when it surfaced that she may have been, like 10 feet too close to bears, it registered a ‘meh’ on my outrage scale. There are plenty of actual faults with this woman to care about.

16 JRCMYP  Tue, Nov 16, 2010 9:57:03am

I can’t stand this woman, and I believe that she is a complete phony, but her reality show staged outings are harmless and silly.

17 HappyWarrior  Tue, Nov 16, 2010 12:48:32pm

I saw some clips of the show last night. We do a funny moments thing at the end of college dems and we all were just amazed at what we saw. We were like this woman is seriously considered a legitimate presidential contender by some people and we all agreed that this show makes the right’s accusations that Obama is a celebrity absurd. I turned to someone and said this is just like Jersey Shore or any other reality show except it’s Alaska.
