    Sarah Palin gets nature documentary on Discovery Networks.

    You all seem like the caring bunch:

    http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/.../?rc=fb_share1

    Sarah Palin's Alaska was purchased by Discovery Networks to be aired on TLC. This is the most brilliant campaign strategy ever launched by a Republican.

    It's also the most damaging thing for environmentalists since our government's failure to ratify the Kyoto Protocol. It's going to make someone who is so misinformed about the environment and the global warming seem sympathetic to the cause.

    Maybe people won't fall for it, but the fact remains that the Discovery Network's imagine has been permanently tarnished in my eyes.

    Redefining environmentalist is a good way to fight environmentalists.

    Hmm, could be interesting. It's good to be exposed to other opinions on a subject, regardless if one agrees with those opinions or not. That's how one stays open minded.

    I really wish John McCain had picked someone else to run with. I really don't see any good reason as to why our country has lent this woman any relevance at all. Were I from another country I'd be pointing to Palin as one more bit of evidence that a lot of America has gotten kind'a goofy.

    I feel the same way about Obama. Actually that goes for most everyone is Washington except Ron Paul. Id keep him around.

    Barrack Obama graduated from Columbia University and Harvard Law School where he was President of the Harvard Law Review. Sarah Palin has a Bachelor's in communications from The University of Idaho.

    Obama served 3 terms in the Illinois Senate. Palin resigned halfway through her first term as Governor of Alaska.

    Obama spent 12 years as a Civil Rights Attorney while teaching Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago. Palin has a multi-year contract with Fox news.

    Apparently In 1984, she won the Miss Wasilla pageant and is hosting a TV show.


    Personally, especially after having heard both speak, I'm a little more confident in Obama's inetgrity, ability, and motivations.

    The Discover Channel, TLC, and The History Channel have all significantly gone down hill in terms of educational value over the years. TDC is mostly about crab fisherman and truck drivers in cold climates. TLC is "My very special wedding day." "My very special birth." "My very special family." THC is nothing but HITLER'S SATANIST CONSPIRACY WITH UFO'S DURING WWII. Not that it was ever good but the Travel channel is simply "check out these really over-the-top dishes from all over America!"

    I can't really understand why people still see The Discovery Channel as a network for learning or science.
    "Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."

    I'm sure you are But I am unimpressed with his integrity, his ability, and his motivations. As I am with Palin. East Coast education <> strong leadership, insight, business acumen, or real-world experience or even common sense.

    You incorrectly assume I would prefer Palin to Obama. Palin was not running for president, rather the VP position.

    I didn't vote for either party. Just because I think Obama stinks doesn't mean I think Palin would be better.

    don't like it? don't watch it, it's cable, they will see the ratings and you can vote that way.

    Yup... I don't understand the Palin thing either. She is just an attention hungry idiot (and I don't mean that in a name calling way... she is simply not very smart, educated, or well spoken and even seems to lack the ability to realize it?). Seriously, if the republicans really needed a token woman, they could have picked someone with some amount of intelligence?
