'American Chopper': Sarah Palin's dead bear chair would like to wish you a happy Friday

Ooh, yeah, baby, sprawl out against that carcass — it really makes the springtime cardigan pop! On last night’s American Chopper, the guys headed up to Russia’s neighbor, Alaska, to commemorate the state’s 50th anniversary with a custom bike. Their meeting with Governor Sarah Palin is possibly the most awkward thing ever filmed, but sort of perfect if you’re like me and appreciate when your television makes you cringe. "Yeah, we love those motor sports!"

"Welcome Back, Governor." I’m sure Palin and Big Paul will take that fishin’ trip this summer. Pics or it didn’t happen, you two!

    i don’t see the awkward cringe-worthiness of this. i don’t watch the show, but have seen parts of it in the past over the years. it seems like every other moment of that show. i don’t see the big deal here. political figures doing these things often lead to moments and classic lines especially when you have the likes of Governor Palin doing it, but this is trying too hard for the laugh.

    Did she say something about representing “the real heart-th of America?” Any guesses what that might mean in Palinese?

    that was hysterical! I miss her and her ways…

    ‘You do so many good things for so many other states’ — sheesh! And the bear! How can she sit against it? The poor thing (the bear, not Palin). What is wrong with people who use dead animals for furniture? (okay I have a leather couch-sue me-but it doesn’t look like a dead cow and make me want to cry.)

    I did not see anything awkward about that piece. If the fasionista writer had not mentioned how the bear skin may have clashed with the Governor’s sweater I would not even paid it any attention. Now then I live in Alaska where many people harvest their own food. (yes bear is edible) While I don’t hunt for trophies, Alaska has some of the best laws in the nation governing wanton waste which generally state that all edible portions of an animal must come out of the field before any trophy items punishable by forfeiture of the hunters weapon and future hunting privileges. So…that bear fed someone, now for all the greenies out there going on about waste and recycling, should we leave half the animal in the field after harvesting the meat? If you don’t like bear skin rugs donate the skin to charity.

    It was more than awkward, it was gross. Why is it whenever Palin appears, she has a dead or soon to be dead animal pictured with her. Let’s show the wolf pups that she’s going to have gassed in their dens after their mother is shot from the airplane. What a compassionate Christian woman. Give me a break. She’s about as heartless as any woman I’ve ever seen, only greedier and more power hungry. She’s a loser! Unfortunately so is the wildlife in Alaska.
