Turns out the hockey mom is also a motorcycle maven.
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently welcomed the crew from Orange County Choppers – whose custom motorcycle business is featured on TLC's American Chopper – to Anchorage where show star Paul Teutul Sr. researched building a bike to honor Alaska's 50-year anniversary of being a state. "It means so much to the state of Alaska that these guys are building this bike that will honor statehood here," Palin says in the episode, airing April 30 at 9 p.m.
Paul Sr. hangs out with the Governor in her office and talks about the Alaskan weather, snowmobiling and fishing in the summer. "I inherit whatever [husband] Todd rejects from the year before," Palin says. After inviting the OCC crew back for the summer months, she suggests having fun Alaska style, saying, "We'll ride the bike to the fishing hole." Although initially nervous about the meeting, Paul Sr. says that he felt Palin was "a real down to earth person to talk to."
From Alaska, the OCC crew heads to Finland in an effort to market their bikes overseas.
This show is still on??
So Alaska is 50 years old, and that is what a 50 year old does; Buy a Harley and start hitting on the MILF's.
I hope they install a gun-rack on the bike, so Ms Sarah can still hunt wolves from the chopper.
It will be the first chopper to run on Goverment Earmarks.
Sarah can actually see Paul SR. from her house...who can't?
The Govenor will add her own polar bear seat cover, little lipstick on that hog...and then sell it on E-Bay like her plane.
Also on TLC: Don't miss Bristol Palin on the next Miami Ink as she gets a "I Heart Wasilla" Tattoo.

"I'd call this felony stupidity. This is probably not the right job for Mr. Caldera to be in if he didn't understand the likely reaction of New Yorkers, of the mayor," Townsend said Tuesday on CNN's "American Morning."
Louis Caldera, director of the White House Military Office, quickly apologized for Monday's incident after the planes prompted workers and residents to evacuate buildings in New York and New Jersey. Watch Townsend slam Caldera »
"Last week, I approved a mission over New York. I take responsibility for that decision," Caldera said. "While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, it's clear that the mission created confusion and disruption."
The Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft, which functions as Air Force One when the president is aboard, was taking part in a classified, government-sanctioned photo shoot.

The hot new movie this summer is the new Wolverine flick. The merchandising has already begun. Beside the usual Wolverine themed happy meals and toys we now have some cross-over merchandising with the Wolverine Schick Quattro Razor, Behold:
I could see a Wolverine Slap-chopper to go with my ShamWow.
But a Schick Quattro tie-in? That doesn't make a lot of sense;
First off the Quattro has four blades whereas Wolverine has 3.
Secondly,Wolverines blades are made from Adamantium not Titanium.
And Finally the Wolverine does not shave, Next to Robin Williams he is one of the hairiest mutants out there. I don't get it.
Hugh Jackman, the actor portraying the mutant super-hero, is also starring in the recently released Australia movie. I haven't seen much Australia merchandising yet.
They should market the Schick Australia Razor...You know...so you can shave "down under".
The president wanted to bring his girls to work today. But They have some tax-problems and I don't expect Congress to approve it.
GM auto workers will have their own "Take your kids to get paid while you don't work" Day.
A last-ditch effort to allow police to stop drivers for not wearing their seat belts is underway in hopes of luring $20 million in federal funds to the state. State Rep. Joe Rice, D-Littleton, said that in the past he has sponsored seat-belt bills because they save lives, but this time, part of his motive is federal transportation dollars offered to states as an incentive for tougher seat-belt laws. "Twenty-million dollars in our economy; I think that's huge," he said. The bill, by Rice and Senate President pro tem Betty Boyd, D-Lakewood, is scheduled to be introduced this week.
The seat belt debate is on again here in Colorado. 20 million dollars of Federal Monies at stake.
We just went through this, but there was not all that free cash to be had...
Some suggestions to the law-makers.
Seat belts should not be required on I-70...seeing as how no one goes fast enough to warrant them.
I like the Texas drivers who have their names stamped into their seat belts, with a gun holster attached. The seat belt could also be used as a really cool bandalero!
I am proud to say that in every red-light camera picture they have ever sent me I am wearing my seat belt as I run the light.
This is Colorado; ski state USA.
They should just put a chair lift safety bar as manditory equipment in each car.
However, I bet that even if I was driving alone, someone would find a way to drop the bar on my head without telling me.

We have all done it. Drove all that way up to the 4-corners of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and The Iraqs.
We put our hands in one state each and our feet in the other - seemingly, to occupy four states at one time. ( Something only Michael Moore does without much effort)
FAIL. we were still in Arizona at the time. The marker is 2.5 miles off...
2.5 miles off!!
Now I guess we all have to go back and find the right spot. Maybe this was the idea...
All these years with GPS and we are just now figuring this out?
How many folks re-calibrated their GPS using this marker?
Madonna suffered "minor injuries and bruises" Saturday while horseback riding in New York's Hamptons, her publicist has announced.
Madonna has fallen on stage She fell off a bike and fell off a horse back in 2005. She is OK and expected to be back on her knees very soon.
She likes riding the horses, I think that way she can convince people those are actually just "Saddle Sores."
She can't adopt an African child, so she was riding a horse around the improvished Hamptons looking for another child to adopt when the accident happened.
Argentina is now, in fact, crying for her.

This GPS unit, which is real, by the way, has gotten the whole Dale Jr treatment, complete with Earnhardt-oriented points of interest and the driver's actual voice, which dopily urges you to do things like "hang a left!" to "park it! we're here!" and to "back'er down!" On the practical side of things, it's $229 and runs Navteq's decent map data set. So, 88!
Finally a device that will tell you where you left your pack of Winstons.
Using Dale Jr's voice it will just keep telling you to "turn left," "Hold ma beer and watch this..." Of course this is all set to Banjo background music.
Perfect for your dashboard Dale shrine. Of course most people will set it up just to watch it crash.
It works pretty well, except that every street is labeled "Victory Lane."
This is better than the Dale Earnhardt SR GPS unit...It only instructed you to drive into the walls.

Amazing turn of events this weekend.
Can't waterboard the pirates, after five days in a life raft waterboarding would be like a soothing massage.
The Navy is assembling a bunch of Davy Jones Lockers as we speak. The lockers are made by Ikea these days and they only have one of those allen-wrenches to use so they are all not quite ready yet.
I predict Hollywood will now start with a bunch of (non-caribbean) pirate movies. Harrison Ford will take on a somali pirate gang and then go after some nigerian email scammers.
You read it here first!

Did he or didn't he??
He didn't bow...
he was ducking a shoe thrown at him.
You can't see it in the video but really, he was "ducking."
That or he dropped his iPod he was about to give the King.
I would have bowed too, those guys usually keep some kind of saber under their robes.
Why is every time I see a news report out of Saudi Arabia it looks like everyone just got out of the shower!?
He should of sent Hillary, We know for a fact that she cannot bend at the waist.

The Somali Pirates have hijacked an American cargo ship now. They are asking for ransome monies, I guess all that eye-liner and hair beads are getting expensive. Apparently piracy is a recession proof job, with excellent executive compensation plans. They must be Union Pirates.
Surely there are some out-of-work ninjas that could be some help here. Or maybe we should call out the Indian Navy again. All I know is that Cap't Stubing would not stand for this! He'd send Isaac with a couple of his famous malatov cocktails to take care of those pesky pirates.
Robot lawnmower controlled by Nintendo Wii remote unveiled
Scientists at the University of Southern Denmark have unveiled the Casmobot robotic lawnmower, which is operated using a Nintendo Wii remote.

Walgreens is pulling the Chia-Obama. Apparently it does not match their corporate image. I guess they need room on the counters for their chocolate flavored KY jellies.
I had no idea there even was a Chia-Obama. It is perfect for anybody's Obama-Alter. It comes with a Chia-Teleprompter and costs only 3.5 trillion dollars. Joe Biden will come water your Chia-Obama personally. (His day-timer is pretty open these days.) Instead of starting another hedge fund you can now just start a hedge for your yard. Much more popular than the Chia-Cheney, which as you know, has no hair at all and won't grow anything.
Like the Obama coin this is just a Chia-Shaggy with a sticker applied. They don't need the sun to grow a luxurious head of green hair...but it does help if you face him towards Mecca.
I imagine the President himself should buy these up. They would make great gifts for the Queen and other heads of state that Obama may visit. Then he can send the rest to Afganistan.
I am headed to Walgreens to buy up the last of the Chia-Presidents and start a chia-farm to combat Global Warming.
