Shotgun wedding

I am saddened at the thought that the McCain campaign could descend to the level of a made-for-TV wedding between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, but given that it would probably be televised on Fox, I must admit some self-interested daydreaming about how many views it would generate on Hulu.

Now that the stock market is in the toilet and my retirement looks to be further out in the future, I'm readying a backup plan. Assuming the McCain campaign loses the election, I will try and convince Sarah Palin to let me and a camera crew follow her family around for a reality TV show called The Palins. It would be the highest-rated reality show of all time.

Some possible names for the show:

  • The Simple Life 6

  • Raising Alaska

  • Raising Trig

  • Bristol and Levi: The Newlyweds 2

  • Bristol, Piper, Track, Willow, Trig, and Alaskan Grizzly bears, oh my

  • Where in the World is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?
