FILE - In this July 26, 2009 file photo shows Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin gestures while giving her resignation speech in Fairbanks, Alaska. A year after her abrupt resignation as Alaska governor, Palin has evolved into a political personality writ large, commanding weeks of headlines for a single Facebook observation _ see health care "death panels" _ and six-figure speaking fees from groups clamoring for her words. Going rogue with a best-selling memoir only added to her aura among the conservative faithful and she has easily eclipsed other Republicans as the coveted endorsement this election year.

"Worst Dad in the World" nominee Jon Gosselin recently complained on Twitter that he hasn't seen his eight kids in weeks.  Well, he might have to wait a bit longer -- it looks like the tykes are in Alaska with their mom, Kate Gosselin, reportedly filming an episode of "Kate Plus Eight" with Sarah Palin.

It's a tag-team of famous moms destined for colossal ratings.  But the cable network that airs the show, TLC, has not confirmed the former governor's appearance.  All signs indicate that it will happen, though.  Yesterday Gosselin and her kids were spotted at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage, which is just 45 miles away from Palin's hometown of Wasilla.  And Palin, media savvy as she is, already has TLC ties: Earlier this year it was announced that she was working on a series for the network, called "Sarah Palin's Alaska."  What better way to promote her own show than by appearing on TLC's most popular program?


A source says Palin, Gosselin and the kids are going camping -- television cameras in tow, of course -- where Palin's father, a retired science teacher, and brother, a third-grade educator, will conduct a hands-on natural history lesson.  It is unkown if Palin will take the kids moose hunting or show them the view of Russia from her porch.
