The Palin Family Highs and Lows of 2011

High: Julianne Moore Does Sarah in ‘Game Change’
Low: What About Todd?
 The reality show about patriarch Todd Palin’s career as a championship snowmobile racer. No one is buying it!

By Jed Dreben

You know you’ve secured your spot in pop culture when “Saturday Night Live” parodies you. Even if you were raised by wolves and live in an igloo somewhere on the Alaskan tundra, odds are you still know about Sarah Palin and her family. Heck, hubby Todd may have dog-sledded past you while you were fishing for salmon. Despite the fact that Sarah Palin is no longer in or running for any political office, she, Todd and their five children — Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow and Piper — rarely go a day without making some type of headline. From plastic surgery to a shotgun wedding, take a look back at the highs and lows of this Wasilla family in 2011.!

    There were highs? Oh yeah, the coke lines on the top of a 55 gal drum.

    I still can’t believe this woman agreed to the cheesecake photo’s with Runner’s World. That she further thought it a good idea to wear panty-hose with it (but we’ve seen her without it, so we understand why) and prominently display her extra-appendages (no, not her faux-brass-balls or Trig) her Blackberries.

    This is where Karl Rove certainly drew up his estimation that she lacked the gravitas to appeal to voters as a candidate for high office.

    The woman in and of herself is an abomination, unfit to lead, but add her, errr, “colorful” family, they are so unbecoming First Family status.

    Watching Julianne Moore play her (which I’m sure Sarah fumes she should get a cut of this production) in Game Change is going to be hilarious. Catatonia cycling through bursts of spastic mania. She sure did love those unearned adoring cheers on the campaign trail. I imagine you can’t beat that high.

    They were saying that they had to pay hundreds of bystanders to cheer for Tom Cruise at his Mission Impossible red carpet event in Mumbai a few weeks ago – that is standard practice in the biz – when Sarah walked out at the RNC, they had to hand out talking points to boost her image since no one knew her. NO ONE! Can you imagine having to force ebullience at an unknown?

    “Sarah, Sarah, Sarah” was all they could chant, cause they didn’t know who the hell she was. A bogus narrative, a bullshit backstory, the only thing real about her was that she didn’t ‘blink’ at an extraordinary chance she didn’t deserve.

      The panty hose was a trick from the ’80’s, pre Photoshop. The then-governor was clueless. I was surprised the photographer didn’t brief her on that. He or she also used poor lighting. The shots were reminiscent of senior pics, resplendent with gushiness from the photog crew, telling her how great she looked. In “real” photoshoots, it’s about what the photographer wants, getting an angle, working with the background. Sarah had no idea what she was doing, or in what was going on on the other side of the camera. Her athletic shots would have been a funny SNL skit.

        I’m still annoyed by her stupid yoga poses. “Here, let me show you how I leave my hair long and do “tree” in the forest. See? Now, ummmmmm. . . Let me stand in my office, I always wrap this flag around me! See? Like this. In front of this here moose head on the wall! Look close: is there anything on my teeth?”

        I imagine the photographer trying to get a word in edgewise and her yammering away at him or her. Glory days from pageant times!

        With a lot of photographers in the last 6 or 7 years, they don’t want the models to wear any makeup, and they don’t want them to wear anything on their legs unless they are supposed to be taking pics of stockings. This is probably why starlets don’t wear hose and why the trend (even in winter!) is to not wear them for the rest of us. The former governor should have known this. With old style photos, nylons over the legs were easier to work with for concealing flaws. Now the flaws are not concealed, they are just gotten rid of with a click.

      Well said . . . and hopefully, the narrative is not yet finished, for she should be held accountable for all the fraud and damage that she forged on this nation, not to mention the Alaskans, who were beguiled by her charms and those who remain in fear. They say that the wheels of justice turn s.l.o.w.l.y~ and in this life, we reap what we so (be that good or bad).

      It’s harvest time, $P.

    What? Did the pistol’s book make it to the NYT’s bs list? You have to be kidding!

      It was fraudulent – the SarahPAC bought up scads of books at that time to boost the numbers, using the books to send to supporters, autographed, for $100 a pop.

    There is no need for anyone to invest in a reality show about any of the Palins.

    That niche has already been taken.

    We watch a Palin humiliate and degrade herself every time she makes a Fox appearance.

    I misread the first line…I thought it said Julianne Moore does Todd Palin. Whew! What a disappointment that would have been for Julianne. I will be sooooo glad when Sarah Palin sits on the same shelf as Dan Quayle. America was a much nicer place before I ever heard of Sarah Palin.
