I asked people who follow me on Twitter to come up with more interesting titles for the forthcoming Sarah Palin television show on TLC than the rather bland "Sarah Palin's Alaska." Following are ten the submissions which caused me to spew the largest spews of coffee on my monitor due to involuntary LOL.
• MYTHMAKERS (@DavidHains )
• NATURE'S DEATH PANELS (@dunagan23)
• PALINTOLOGY (@iheartmuseums )
• WHALIN' WITH PALIN (@hmobius)
• THE BEWILDERNESS (@james_atomic)
• TRAILIN' PALIN (@invisiblea)
• WIFE ON EARTH (@fcw)
• NORTHERN OVEREXPOSURE (@JIMWICh)
• THE BEVERLY SNOWBILLIES (@drhypercube)
