The Pitch for the Palin Reality Show

spreality_2.jpg
Yes, we’ve heard a lot about Sarah Palin as a movie, Sarah Palin as a porno, Sarah Palin as a crop circle (mysterious).

But over at Deep Glamour, Kate Coe has the pitch for the reality show. Not just the ‘this should be a reality show’ either. Coe has the first season mapped out. She has more of a plan for this series than John McCain had when he picked her. No joke. Only truth:

North of 60 with Sarah

In this new reality series, former candidate for Vice-President, Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, a forty-ish, flirty mother of 5 (!), juggles affairs of state, lost homework, disgruntled constituents, injunction waving lawyers, wedding planning, and putting meat on the table. Think docu-drama meets C-Span, shot on location in the wilds of the frozen north.

In the first episode, spunky Sarah vetos anti-gill net legislation and an extended curfew for Willow with equal aplomb. Piper stows away on a float plane, but a quick thinking state trooper has her home for dinner.

Future episodes include a show-down between Sarah and Putin over fishing rights that’s soon eclipsed by the furor raised by Bristol’s determination to have a vegan wedding buffet.
