The Sunday night announcement of the launch of Sarah Palin’s new news channel brought out the wits and wags on Twitter Monday morning as they began compiling names for potential programing on the fledgling network.
Under the hashtag #PalinTVShows, the list of possibilities seemed endless as hundreds of suggestions were posted every minute.
More than a few commenters noted the discounted rate of $99.95 for a one-year subscription for network access, wondering if former vice presidential candidate — notorious for resigning her governorship of Alaska midway through her first term – would stick around for a full year of programming before finding something else to do.
Please enjoy a sampling of what America says it would like to see on the Sarah Palin Channel:

Come and Take It Texas, a group affiliated with the open carry movement, is complaining that topless protestors are ruining their monthly walks in support of gun rights.
They are being “trolled by skanky topless libtards,” one post on the group’s Facebook page reads. Another post identifies the counter-protestors as members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA), even though they made no claim to being affiliated with that organization.
The topless counter-protestors carried signs that read, “You realize that everyone thinks you’re overcompensating for your teeny tiny ‘gun’ right?” and “Boobs for peace.” The women confronted the open carry advocates and said that as long as they openly carried their weapons, the counter-protestors would bare their breasts.
One of the open carry advocates, Tom Jefferson, claimed that counter-protestors harassed them.
