All true friendliness begins with fire and food and drink and the recognition of rain or frost.
G. K. Chesterton What’s Wrong With the World
As it turns out, Chesterton couldn’t have been more correct, and the reverse proves his observation. Kate Gosselin appeared with her kids on Sarah Palin’s Alaska and showed that if you can’t get past the rain and frost and just enjoy a moose hot dog you can’t start a true friendship.
On last week’s show TLC pulled off pairing two of their more popular reality mommies and I dare say the more vilified of the two came off as the winner. You could argue that many people have said mean things about Kate Gosselin. Nobody in their right mind would say she’s been on the receiving end of more slurs and insults than Sarah Palin.
Perhaps it was creative editing to punch up the drama, but my word! I’d rather spend time with Sarah than Kate. To make my point, I’ve created this handy side-by-side comparison.
