Sarah Palin Channel Now Featuring Random Strangers and Zero Production Values

In case you are wondering if you missed out on a bargain when you decided not to subscribe to the Sarah Palin Channel for $9.95 a month, have no fear. The internet-based network seems to have devolved into a freaky webcam/cinéma vérité style production that never ceases to amaze with both with its lack of production values and discernible point.

During a recent episode, for example, Sarah Palin seems to be both cast and crew, looking directly at her shaky camera and fidgeting with her tiny mic before introducing her guests for the day – two young Jewish guys who just so happened to knock on her door.

Now granted the guys, who are from New Jersey, don’t exactly look like serial killers, but Palin then proceeds to explain to all of the internet world just how easy it is to walk right up to her Wasilla home and get in.

She then rambles on a bit about how she doesn’t really have security, (something that seems unwise to say on the air) but that she did take a sharpie and write, “Please, No Trespassing, Thank You,” on the signs near her driveway.

Her special guests at one point get so bored that they pass off their cell phones to Palin’s husband to take a picture with Sarah, who actually stops talking to pose for the shot.

After they exit the camera shot, though, Palin keeps talking to them, mentioning moose and other things and seeming to forget that she is broadcasting.

Suddenly, her next special guest appears, Lucy the dog, who Palin notes likes her because she feeds her ‘people food.’

The Jewish guys also return for more pics, this time with Lucy and Palin’s husband.

The whole thing was supposed to be a behind-the-scenes look at Palin’s channel, but ends up just coming off as a jumbled mess that smacks of someone who didn’t bother to think through what they planned to do once the cameras started rolling.
