Sarah Palin: latest television superstar?

Can Sarah Palin be the next Oprah?

I'm not the person to ask,as I would rather put lighted matches in my eyes than watch Oprah.

I did watch Sarah Palin's debut show on Fox, and I found it too treacly for my taste.  It was all sweetness and very little light.  Yes, there are some inspiring people in the US.  But I prefer more variety.  Let's have a few of us nasty people interviewed, for a refreshing change of pace.

I like Sarah Palin well enough.  I wish her well.  But I don't want to watch her.  To my mind she needs seasoning.  She needs a bit more polish and a little less gee whiz by golly.

Not having my dictionary handy, I must assume that "treacly" means syrupy or something of that sort?

I love your big sexy vocabulary.

And I agree on Palin. Her voice and demeanor is too 1950s for me.

(No, I refuse to use an online dictionary. REFUSE.)

$arah's voice is like a donkey bray.

Treacle is molasses, which is horribly sweet--also sticky and cloying.

I, too, come hear to widen my American English vocabulary!

[well, not only. But you know that]

Luckily for me, I can only afford basic cable and didn't see the program. For the best, it seems.
