Over 5 million viewers tuned in to the debut of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” Sunday night on TLC’s cable channel far exceeding the show “Madmen” at 2.9 million.
Palin invites us into her home located in Wasilla, Alaska overlooking Lake Lucille and the beautiful Chugach and Talkeetna mountains. Sarah also takes us on a journey 110 miles from her home to a popular fishing location where Grizzly’s feast on a never ending supply of salmon. During this episode Palin conquers her fear of heights by climbing Denali, the summit of North America.
One of the things I loved about the show is that Sarah is a typical mom interacting with her children. I was also pleasantly surprised that she works at her computer located in the kitchen barefoot and wearing shorts just like me! What amazes me is all of the judgment that this woman endures. Probably because she is not afraid to voice her opinions or beliefs. I am even more amazed of the harshness that comes from other Christians! She is a mother who loves her children, a woman who has passion and loves her country. Is she perfect? No. Who is? I fully believe that if she were a man she would gain more respect from the public. It’s a proven fact that strong women are looked down upon, but have a man step up to the podium and speak as she does with authority, he would have the respect from all those who hear.
My advice would be to watch her show before you judge it! So far it has nothing to do with politics…and even if it did, what does that matter?
I am so looking forward to next weeks episode!
