Sarah Palin’s Next Job: Television Star?

The next Ellen, Judge Judy or Pat Buchanan? Thanks to Sarah Palin’s recent stint on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, everybody has an opinion on her future as television’s next big thing. Which is probably why The Hollywood Reporter penned an article on Friday entitled, “Sarah Palin: Future Media Star?”

Too bad authors Andrew Wallenstein and Steven Zeitchik neglected to ask this TV Addict to weigh in on the potential VP’s future small screen possibilities (assuming of course she doesn’t find her way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on November 4th). Because I’ve got the most Legen… [wait for it]…. Dary answer of all. A spot on the couch alongside the ladies of THE VIEW.

Just imagine, America’s favorite hockey mom backing up Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the side of the right each and every morning. If that isn’t must see TV, I don’t know what is. After-all, as authors Wallenstein and Zeitchik so accurately put it, “Love her or hate her — there doesn’t seem to be much middle ground with Palin — the 44-year-old hockey mom has captured the public imagination in a way no politician has since, well, Barack Obama.”

    Please, please don’t call her Vice President-elect. That implies she’s already been elected.

    Thanks for the correction :)

    I think I just threw up in my mouth. The thought of her and Elisabeth together every day…..*shudders*

    Send her back to Alaska. Then she can come back in 4 years and get beaten in the Rethuglican nomination battle to challenge President Obama. ;)

  • Linda B.

    I think if she doesn’t win next week, she will finish out her current term as governor of Alaska and then have a successul run at the Senate. I don’t think we’re done seeing the last of her.

    My vote goes for Palin vs. Rosie. Now there’s something I’d pay to see.
