Palin Fights Barbara Bush While Her TV Show Loses Viewers

Sarah Palin has a habit of winding up in feud, and with his history of abuse of power it is a scary thought to think she might ever wind up as president with control of the FBI, IRS, and entire nuclear arsenal. She’s getting involved in a couple more.

Palin didn’t have the sense to ignore Barbara Bush’s suggestion that she remain in Alaska and instead launched into this counter-attack in an interview with Laura Ingraham:

“I don’t want to concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing, because i don’t think the majority of Americans want to put up with the blue-bloods — and i want to say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes — the blue bloods who want to pick and chose their winners instead of allowing competition,” Palin said (beginning at about 1:30 in the interview above).

Palin also suggested that the Bushes upper-class status had contributed to “the economic policies that were in place that got us into these economic woeful times.”

Meanwhile her television show is receiving criticism from animal rights groups while it falls in the ratings:

After setting a TLC ratings record last week, Sarah Palin’s reality show plummeted for its second episode.

Sarah Palin’s Alaska fell 40% on Sunday night to 3 million viewers.

Not many were in the key adult demo either. Only 885,000 viewers were ages 18-49, dropping 44% from last week.

In fact, the median age of the show is 57 — that’s 15 years older than TLC’s average.

There still were 3 million people who either were brain dead and thought she was worth watching or were brain dead and unable to figure out how to change the channel.

Educating Sarah Was Unsuccessful

During the 2008 campaign the McCain campaign found that Sarah Palin was ignorant of basic information regarding recent history and other nations, including that Korea was a divided country. Game Change explained:

She knew nothing. She had to be taken through World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and Palin was not aware there was a difference between North and South Korea. She continued to insist that Iraq was behind 9/11; and when her son was being sent off to Iraq, she couldn’t describe who we were fighting.

Palin is still having difficulty remembering the details about Korea. Today in an interview with Glenn Beck she referred to “our North Korean allies.”

“This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously we’ve gotta stand with our North Korean allies.”

In what might be the first occurrence ever, Glenn Beck provided the correct answer.
