While filming her reality show in Alaska over the weekend, Sarah Palin was caught on camera having an all-too-real discussion with a disgruntled former constituent. While fishing, Palin spotted a sign reading “Worst Governor Ever,” according to longtime Palin nemesis Shannyn Moore of the Huffington Post, and approached the woman holding it to argue. She didn’t do well. “You swore on your precious bible that you would uphold the interests of this state,” the woman declared, “and then when cash was waved in front of your face, you quit.”

Palin replied, “You wanted me to be your Governor, I’m honored.” The woman replied that she wanted her to be “part of the political process, instead of becoming a celebrity.” Palin: “I’m honored. No, she thinks I’m a celebrity, I’m honored.” Palin said she respected the woman’s First Amendment rights, but Moore says "a Palin goon" tore down the sign as soon as the man wielding the cellphone camera left.
