Not Coming Soon To An Episode on Sarah Palin’s Alaska

We usually do not track the latest STD data, but this one is quite remarkable. Alaskan officials are reporting a 69 percent increase in gonorrhea in just one year — 2008 to 2009. This is one area where viewers might not want to “follow me there” to Alaska, as touted on the Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

The new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report reveals the increase and officials are scrambling to educate the public. Alaska ranks ninth in the nation for its rate of gonorrhea — up from the mid-twenties and is the second highest for chlamydia. When Palin promises to open up “the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans,” she was probably not considering the STD records being set in the state.

By the way, while STDs are rising, ratings are falling for the show.

  1. Swarthmore mom:

    As that article states shes going to be put in a position of givng access to people and media other than fox news,and then the real “Sarah Palins Alaska” will be in full view for what it really is.

  2. eniobob She would next lose New Hampshire to Romney but then move on to win South Carolina.

  3. Sarah Palin would be wise to wage a full-fledged campaign for Iowa’s leadoff nominating caucuses if she runs for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, strategists for six GOP presidential campaigns said on the eve of her scheduled trip to West Des Moines today.

    The state’s Republican base fits her conservative profile, they say, and the base is ripe for the energy she attracts. The base already is motivated by Terry Branstad’s election as governor and the defeat of three Iowa Supreme Court justices this month

  4. “Abstinence doesn’t work. And [B]ristol [P]alin is proof.” Am I to infer that you think Ms. Palin got pregnant despite abstaining?

  5. I will reluctantly admit to watching the first 2 episodes of
    ” Sarah Palin’s Alaska “, and can fully understand why there is a raise in STD’s. Given the choice of a. fishing & then bashing the heads of Hallibut or b.) having unprotected sex ….I choose b !!!

  6. I was wondering if there was any correlation between Palin’s governorship, reduction of STD prevention and these results, or is she inept enough to damage good products by just being near by or uttering her name…it makes me feel Diseased, not STDed by still.

  7. Correction:

    Meanwhile, Sister Sarah keeps beating her old “abstinence” drum…

  8. anon nurse:
    From your link,this commentator says it all,and I will add a “BINGO!!”

    Abstinence doesn’t work. Both the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics agrees with me. All those blue-bloods with educations and FACTS.

    Abstinence doesn’t work. And bristol palin is proof. If sarah can’t get the message through to her OWN DAUGHTER, what makes her think that poking her nose into the lives of others will have any effect? ‘

    palin doesn’t want the government to interfere with our lives, yeah right

  9. Ah the power of suggestion and association to the devious mind. Alaska … Sarah Palin … Bristol Palin … Dancing With the Stars, and voila:

  10. Didn’t the original Tommie Jefferson dies from an STD? Not that there is any comparison…..
