Sarah Palin on "American Chopper"

She's just talking about patriotism and leaning back on the dead bear.

On Thursday, Sarah Palin made an appearance on that most macho of TLC reality shows "American Chopper," where she welcomed host Paul Teutul Sr. (and his intimidating mustache!) into her office to chat about building a bike for Alaska's 50th anniversary of statehood. Because … why not? The two of them jaw about snow machines and patriotism and riding out to the fishing hole, but I'll be honest: All I can pay attention to is that gigantic dead bear on the couch behind her. It's like a "Saturday Night Live" sketch that Tina Fey got to skip.
