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.

    The half term governor is a “Dan Qualye” in heels. Since we already had an idiot “W” that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust in fools who think they are brilliant. One of the reason for “W” failure was his drinking, Palin just has bad genes.

    I think it is a serious error to read into people’s motives like this. I am sure a lot of that three million viewership was made up of liberals and lefties who were watching it for the sheer kitsch of it.
