A Teacher Protests “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”

Sarah Palin was in Homer, Alaska, shooting TLC’s upcoming “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” but faced an unwelcome sign: “Worst Governor Ever.” It was posted by one of the fishing village’s residents, Kathleen Gustafson, who put it up to protest that she had resigned as the state’s governor to instead pursue her own celebrity — including the TLC show. Palin defends her move, saying that she has been out supporting candidates who will protect American freedoms. But as NY Mag notes, she isn’t impressed by Gustafson’s profession: School teacher.

Update: Palin pushes back on Facebook, arguing that the “lamestream media” is misinterpreting her eyebrow roll.

“Yes, it’s come to this: the media is now trying to turn my eyebrow movements into story lines. (Maybe that’s why Botox is all the rage – if you can’t move your eyebrows, your ‘eye rolling’ can’t be misinterpreted!)” Palin writes.
