If you know anything about my television-watching habits, you probably know that I have very little shame. I will proudly watch The Real Housewives of [insert location here], call my mother to discuss, and then flip the channels until I find a good Bones rerun or something. I don’t even feel guilty about watching Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab. But I think they’ve finally come up with a show that makes me want to lock my bedroom door and turn the volume down…it’s a little program on TLC called Sarah Palin’s Alaska. I am transfixed in morbid fascination, and I feel bad about it. The Palins are quite outdoorsy, and they bond over camping and hunting and other activities I dislike. So why is it so fascinating? I have no idea…maybe I’m just so filled with relief by the fact that Sarah Palin is not in a position of power that it’s reassuring to watch her on reality TV, which is probably where she’s always belonged anyway.
