Sarah Palin’s New Reality Show Is Basically Jackass for Conservatives

“Get red, wild and blue, America!” There’s a new trailer for Sarah Palin’s Amazing America reality show on the Sportsman Channel and it is way more insane than you ever thought it could be.
The show released a teaser video last month, but it just consisted of Palin’s silhouette over an full screen American flag and quotes about how awesome she was. This time, we get actual footage from the show, and it looks… incredibly goofy.
Now, it’s not that I thought Amazing America was going to be some introspective TV version of NPR’s This American Life with the former Alaska governor traveling around the country meeting interesting people and letting them tell their stories to the world. But I guess somehow I thought it might be a little more than a glorified red state Jackass complete with shooting, fighting and and man getting rammed in the butt by a stampeding bull.
“This show is going to highlight a freedom that we get to experience in America,” Palin says optimistically in the 30 second video. If freedom means the ability to almost kill yourself for others’ entertainment, then I guess she’s right.

And just to drive home the point, here it is with the theme song to Jackass added in the background:http://www.mediaite.com/tv/sarah-palins-new-reality-show-is-basically-jackass-for-conservatives/#ooid=N0ODE5bDrzGjMw7A_cuGx6K7Z0Bcc_W2
