The Sarah Palin Show?

Depending on the outcome of the election, it could be on television soon:
But as more and more polls cast doubt on the McCain-Palin ticket, producers and agents across the entertainment world are discussing possibilities for capitalizing on her fame, ranging from an Oprah-style syndicated talk show to a Sean Hannity-like perch in cable news or on radio.

"Any television person who sees the numbers when she appears on anything would say Sarah Palin would be great," said veteran morning-show producer Steve Friedman, citing the double-digit ratings gains her appearances on "Saturday Night Live" and "CBS Evening News" generated. "The passion she has on each side, love and hate, makes television people say, 'Wow, imagine the viewership.' "
I have no doubt the show would be an immense hit, especially in that oft-romanticized land known as "middle America."

Over here in Latte Land, however, you couldn't pay me enough to watch that woman on her own TV show. Give me a break. I'd rather watch paint dry.

Well, actually, I'd rather watch Barack Obama hold news conferences in the White House Rose Garden, but you know what I mean.
