Sarah Palin on OCC's American Chopper?
Thursday, April 30, 2009
Former Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin teaming up with the Teutul clan from American Chopper? It's a match made in reality TV heaven.
Ran across this on Google Alerts. Seems like the Teutuls are headed to Alaska to build a custom motorcycle in celebration of Alaska’s 50th Anniversary. And, according to Gawker
, former Repubublican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is going to appear on the episode chronicling the build. There’s a great picture of Sr. and Palin sitting on the couch with a big bear skin rug between the two.
I sense a Saturday Night Live skit on the horizon. If they can convince Tina Fey to do her splendid Palin impersonation, who can we get for Paul Sr.? Too bad Chris Farley’s not around, he’d be a great Sr.
Of course, this combination of controversial cultural icons has already fueled backlash on internet forums. Though I don’t prescribe to their sentiment, some of them are downright funny, so I collected a few of them here for your amusement. (Courtesy of the Gawker forum)
Oh sweet Jeezus, the two biggest redneckery attention-whoring families have found each other.
I heard she requested a bike with a sidecar equipped with a gun turret for moose hunting.
She should just take the next step already and start doing cameos on Operation Repo.
Damn, when will the name Palin be associated with Monty Python again?
Let the parodies begin.
