Sarah Palin's Alaska is an environment wrought with challenges.
When it comes to protecting daughter Willow, a mama grizzly will do what she needs to do. Stopping by for a visit on the first episode of Sarah's TLC show, the 16-year-old Willow's excited boyfriend Andy learns this the hard way.
Sarah Palin wants to tap the oil fields of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, but strives to ensure Willow Palin remains untapped by certain Alaskan wildlife.
Barring Andy from following Willow up where evil things happen, Sarah says "See this gate? It's not just for Trig, it's for no boys go up there." Eloquent as ever.
Considering her success rate keeping boys off of Bristol Palin, you'd think Sarah would know a baby gate's not gonna do much. But hey, at least she's trying.
