Sarah Palin goes on Reality TV show to complain about her lack of privacy

The first episode of Sarah Palin’s new reality TV show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is now online, and in it, she complains bitterly about her lack of privacy. Oh the irony.

UPDATE: Even more irony! Palin was complaining about next-door neighbor Joe McGinniss, who is writing a book about Palin. But the crew of her reality show actually filmed McGinniss while he was sitting reading a book on his private deck, without asking his permission. McGinniss’s lawyer has fired off a letter to the show, demanding that footage of him be removed from the show. “Mr. McGinniss was not asked if any production crew could videotape him as he read a book on the secluded deck of the house he was living in at that time. He was not aware that any camera crew was in fact videotaping him. Mr. McGinniss had a reasonable expectation of privacy under those circumstances. The mere taking of the video therefore gives rise to an actionable claim for invasion of his privacy.”

    I thought it was funny when she talked about building the 14 foot fence to keep the neighbor she was complaining about from seeing in to her property. But the guy’s house is up on a hill and it was obvious he could see right over the fence. Then Palin says the fence is inspirational and reminds her of what we should do to secure our border. The woman could take a bologna sandwich and use it as a euphemism for immigration.

    This is actually the first post I’ve done on Palin in a while. I agree that the media seems to have a fetish about her.

    The public’s fascination with Sarah Palin obviously stems from her leadership qualities and political ideas, as illiustrated here:

    Side note: Bill Maher is about as useful to the Left as Bill OReilly is to the Right. Take that as you want.
