    I can’t believe that many people would have watched it the first week. I actually did not and will not. How can anyone watch someone showing how wonderful Alaska is when that same person, as govenor, put a bounty for every right wolf paw., Alaska is a wilderness, but she wanted to get rid of the wolves. Why hasn’t she has done as much to help save the polar bear. She is a politician, not an environmentalist. All she wants is the media attention and to line her pockets. No Palin in Alaska or the US. Remember, she can see Russia from her home. 🙂
