Sarah Palin's Latest Next Step: Reality TV

>Sarah Palin has played many roles in the past year: governor of Alaska, memoir author, Fox news pundit. This week news broke that she'll be adding another job to the list—reality TV show host. The former Republican vice presidential candidate will reportedly star in a Discovery Channel show about her home state of Alaska.

According to Variety:

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" will center on interesting characters, traditions and attractions in the 49th state—with the ex-VP candidate as a guide. [Mark] Burnett and Palin pitched the show to all four major networks—but given the travelogue nature of the series, cable expressed more interest in the project.

The Atlantic Wire rounds up bloggers' reactions here. Meanwhile, let's hope the show doesn't turn out anything like this:
