It's also a reason behind why Sarah's new Alaska show on TLC is already off to a strong start. The ratings for Sarah Palin's Alaska are through the roof, and it's all because her dittohead Tea Party supporters are tuning her in en masse, whether they care about Alaska or not. If anyone else was doing this show besides Palin -- ie. Joe Nonpolitical from Alaska or, good heavens, a Democrat -- believe me, no one would watch.
Honestly, is this what America is coming to? People watching television shows based on their political affiliations? I mean, it's bad enough when you have Republicans only tuning in Fox News and Democrats only tuning in MSNBC or CNN. It was bad enough when you had Republicans tuning in Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and the like, while the Democrats got their marching orders from Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz et. al.
