Australia should have invited Sarah Palin instead of Oprah Winfrey

Posted on: August 14, 2011

It’s been a three million dollar wastage!

Tourism Australia’s much touted windfall from Oprah Winfrey’s Ultimate Australian Adventure failed to materialize. Much to the chagrin of the officials who pushed for it. But then, the Aussies picked the wrong American celebrity.

Instead of inviting Oprah who is winding down, they should have asked Governor Sarah Palin to tour the island continent, and imbue it with some of the ascendant politician’s aura and celebrity.

Consider this: Oprah mostly appeals to women, children, and nutty leftwing domesticated individuals and the artsy crowd. Whereas Sarah Palin appeals to men, women and children in all walks of life, specially the adventuresome ones.

sarah_runningSML Sarah Palin would have been perfectly at home in the legendary Australian outback. As a genuine outdoors person, athlete and brave heart she fits right in with the world’s idea of an Aussie. Actually the fact that she comes from one of  the coldest parts of the world will have had added fascination for the people of Australia. Indeed, only a genuinely activity oriented, physically engaged person such as Sarah Palin would have fully appreciated the finer aspects of Australia’s rugged beauty.

Alaska and Australia are the perfect bookends weather-wise. One might even say they are truly poles apart. That alone would have made Sarah Palin an excellent choice. Her television shows on Alaska are amazing. There can be no doubt that an entire segment of humanity now thinks of Alaska differently, even some right here at home. It’s really the last place for frontiersperson after all.

Australians were misadvised. I think. Oprah is no doubt a world-wide phenomenon. But this Aussie trip probably helped Oprah’s ratings more than Australia’s. Too bad that it’s too late for this mistake to be corrected what with the election season coming up. (And we know the Governor is planning something.)

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    The liberal hate flows strong in today’s edition of This Week in Media Bias History. On April 19, then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann smeared Rush Limbaugh as having “blood” on his hands for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. On April 14, 2009, CNN’s Anderson Cooper used a vulgar slang term for oral sex to describe the Tea party movement.

    Looking at the grief Starbucks has received for problems with two patrons at a Philadelphia store, one might ask why current Executive Chairman and former CEO Howard Schultz didn't buy some media protection by purchasing a major newspaper. Fellow Seattle-area resident and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos did that with the Washington Post in 2013. Amazon's all […]
