Sarah’s new reality show depicts Alaska in all its beauty, but her actual town, where she used to be the mayor, is a hotbed for drug activity!
Every Sunday America gets to see Sarah Palin explore the beauty of her home state in Sarah Palin’s Alaska — but her hometown of Wasilla is anything but! As a 2008 AP article reported, “In 2003, authorities uncovered nine meth labs in the area. Last year, the number increased to 42.” Wasilla, the town where Sarah was mayor from 1996 – 2002.
It is not just meth either. The mother of Bristol Palin‘s former fiance Levi Johnston, Sherry Johnston, was arrested for selling Oxycontin in 2008.
Sarah, oddly enough, has yet to spend much time in her hometown on her show. Instead she seems to be water planing, boating and RVing to any other location.
Perhaps if she made the focus of her show her attempts to deal with the mounting problems in Wasilla she would come off as a more thoughtful and intelligent politician, much more so than she does by clubbing halibut and tempting bears.
It seems like this show may have been a missed opportunity to show Sarah dealing with actual problems in Alaska, ones that are literally right outside her front door.
