Have fun keeping your share of the TLC Swag from the Duggars

There were stories circulating this week that somehow super-grifter Sarah Palin’s “alternative reality show” Baked Alaska was somehow going to end up on the Discovery Channel. The same channel that has given you “Planet Earth” and “Life“, shows featuring the undeniable power of the evolutionary process, was going to give you someone who thinks the first Kentucky Derby winner rode a Jesus-Horse.

But alas, you cannot schedule Sarah Palin before or after “Mythbusters” so Discovery shuttled her off to lesser-light TLC, the network that brings you such quality programming as ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive, ‘Little People, Big World‘, and the Duggars 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and Counting. And it’s great that Palin can come to TLC and save the network because the Duggars are just about out of cipherin’ digits to figure out how many they’ve done birthed.

The Fight For The Public Option Was The Fight For Better Regulation



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
