Another Palin goes Hollywood

Obot heads will be exploding:

Sarah Palin in awe of husband Todd’s feats on ‘Stars Earn Stripes’

Sarah Palin said politics can be “pretty brutal,” but not as brutal as what her husband, Todd, and the rest of the cast endured in NBC’s upcoming competition show, “Stars Earn Stripes.”

“I don’t think physically I would be able to handle what they’ve gone through,” said Palin, adding that she’d “have to be doing a whole lot of pushups” to prepare for the show.

“It will blow you guys away when you see what they do,” she said. “I … was witness to the bumps and bruises at the end of some of the days.”


In “Stars Earn Stripes,” Todd Palin is one of eight stars paired with members of the military or first-responder forces to compete in challenges inspired by actual military exercises. Hosted by Gen. Wesley Clark, the show premieres Aug. 13.

Besides Todd Palin, other cast members include boxing champ Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain, actor and ex-NFL player Terry Crews, singer Nick Lachey (the former Mr. Jessica Simpson), “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street and professional wrestler Eve Torres. Teams compete for a cash prize they donate to a military, veteran or first-responder charity.

Sarah Palin said Todd, a four-time Iron Dog snowmobile race champion, is well-suited for the competition because he’s “calm, cool and collected all the time.”

I would totally go gay for Todd Palin, but only if we were in prison or something. As Sarah once said, “Divorce Todd? Have you SEEN Todd? I may be just a renegade Hockey Mom, but I’m not blind!

This is an open thread.

    I may watch that show so I can look at Wesley Clark.

    He would’ve been a great first dude!

    Any thoughts on the morning after the Opening Ceremonies? I was underwhelmed guess you had to be there.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I watched about 10 minutes of coverage spread out over the evening. The only thing I remember was that the flag-bearer for Turkey was drop-dead gorgeous.

    • yttik says:

      LOL, the opening ceremonies were just strange. Not bad or good, just odd. I’m still trying to recover and process the whole thing. I thought the smoke stacks that pumped real sulfur into the crowd was sure to rile some people up.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Nothing says Olympics like the smells of Newark, NJ 😀 Before interstates and bypass roads, we had to drive through inner cities and that smell always triggered my carsickness.

        Good thing I wasn’t in the stadium last night ….

      • cj says:

        I know. As if an ode to the industrial revolution wasn’t dismal enough, they felt it was necessary for the audience to actually smell the sulfur belching out of the stacks too. I’m sure that was appreciated.

        Loved the fireworks, and didn’t mind the USA uniforms as much as I thought I would, but most of what I was able to watch was weird.

      • yttik says:

        Somebody commented, “was that show about national pride or self loathing?”

        Somebody else replied, “the Brits don’t engage in self loathing, that’s an American trait.”

        LOL, it’s so true! The Brits don’t share our sense of shame. The parade of champions was kind of funny because it was like, “and here comes another country once invaded and colonized by the British.”

    • angienc says:

      Overall I thought it was a festival of suck. The ode to the industrial revolution was bizarre & unorganized looking, but then the little kids jumping on hospital beds with doctors & nurses dancing around? I understand it was an ode to the National Health Care system (in itself weird for the Olympics) but when I see children & hospital beds all I can think of is St. Jude’s & little kids dying of cancer — not exactly helpful to get into the “Olympic spirit.” And the blow up balloons of children’s lit villains was just creepy. The Mr. Bean segment was funny but I don’t know how appropriate for the Olympics and the teens dancing/ode to the World Wide Web was downright annoying. The parade of nations is always the best part (IMO) because I like seeing all the athletes from the different countries and all the little caldrons becoming *the* huge Olympic caldron was very, very cool (as were the fireworks). They had the perfect ending with that, but they had to go & ruin it by having the guy who used to be Paul McCartney sing “Let It Be” immediately afterward as the “official” ending. Talk about gilding the lily.

      Turns out, Mitt was far too kind.

      Down Twinkles.

        I’m on my own with this, apparently, but I really liked it and thought it showed well the spirit of duty, unity, purpose that the Brits embody so well at times. Call me sappy, but what can I say. We have friends and visit there, plus my great grands and grands are from there. I liked that it wasn’t as flashy as Beijing, and somehow, it seemed kind of organic to me. I loved the Queen’s bit. Plus it is a tall order to create something that appeals to and makes sense for the people in the stadium as well as the TV viewers.

    • Lulu says:

      A lot of them look like realtors. After I run my race can I show you a house.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Loved the old Levi-Strauss designs for the U.S.

    • angienc says:

      The UK team’s Vegas-spaceman uniforms were designed by Stella McCartney — as were those sack dresses the little girls (bridesmaids? what were their purpose? I have no idea) which only further confirms my opinion that Stella McCartney is *the* most overrated designer in the entire world.

    Will the American polity ever mature? Not until you have a woman head of state. And the way things are now, I doubt that its ever gonna happen during our lifetime. Till then, 50% of the population are being pressurised using slogans of reproductive rights and supreme court justices. Its depressing. Sorry guys, not a topic for the mornings. Better to move onto something more uplifting.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    A nice surprise in the NYT review of the Opening Ceremony, it was refreshingly honest and not bad …. or slobberingly good either 😀

  7. tommy says:

    I’ll never forgive the repubs, dems and mostly MSM for what they did to Hillary and Sarah. No democracy can reach political maturity until they have a STRONG woman head of state. Think Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, Indira Gandhi. They changed the political DNA of their respective nations. The youth of those nations still remember and admire them cos they all were serious and strong leaders. It just changes the entire mindset. I’m not saying that they all were good, just that the stereotype of how women are was demolished. Hillary and Sarah had to fight their own party, while being mocked at by the opposing party. The greatest tragedy was the sexist MSM, rather than portraying them as serious thinkers and leaders, behaved like they were candidates for the Ms. USA pageant. The dems cater to all factions in their coalition – hispanics, african-americans. LGBT. They don’t come close to 50% population. But women, yeah you can rise to any position, but the top job, we don’t think so. How many times have I heard the same words from dem women bout Hillary and repub women bout Sarah – yeah we’d like a woman, but not THAT woman. In the mean time, we get dudes who keep making the previous president (who we all thought was the dumbest president evah) look like a kindly and wise man. Ok, rant off. Hey, all this is just my opinion. I may be mistaken in my thinking. Peace.

    Todd Palin really is nice to look at. I bet he’s having a blast.

  9. gram cracker says:

    Wonder what the results would be if women were asked, who would you rather be married to… Barack Obama, Todd Palin, or Mitt Romney?

    Todd Palin is a jack of all trades who can build a house, catch and clean fish, fly a seaplane, repair the car AND diaper the baby.

    Mitt Romney while not as hands-on as Todd can pay for someone to build Ann a house, clean the fish, fly her anywhere, fix the car and diaper the kids.

    Barack Obama can play at golf and basketball. Barack knows how to smoke weed but has probably never pulled a weed or mowed the grass in his life. But he has a way with words. As was said in Texas in 2008, “all hat, no cattle”.

  10. Todd Palin is second on my list of Five Freebies, after Daniel Craig.

    Cameroon had the best opening ceremony outfits…the indominitable lions and lionesses…..very cool….
