This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
We can see the Saturday Night Live sketches already!
And though her stint in politics may be coming to an end, the former Alaska Governor is heading into another position of great power — as a new TV courtroom judge!
That's right! The once vice presidential candidate has signed on for a new reality court show that would be premiering next year.
According to People, Palin signed a deal with Montana-based production company Warm Springs last month!
"It's a production deal. What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."
The production company approached Palin with the idea last year, and has since assembled a team that includes the executive who discovered Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown!
While Palin doesn't have a juris doctor degree like the two famous TV judges, the source notes that her "common sense wisdom" make her perfect for the job, adding:
"Palin's telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and she was Warm Springs' top pick for this project."
We totally back this!
Palin's "wisdom" definitely belongs on reality TV and not in the White House! LOLz!
Will U watch The Honorable Sarah Palin??
