Loaded for bear: Gosselin rides shotgun with Palin

The Mama Grizzly mauled the Mama Drama Queen in "Sarah Palin's Alaska" last night, firmly establishing her Alpha Female dominance in the reality-show jungle.

Kate Gosselin survived her showdown with a heavily armed Palin by cutting short their rain-soaked camping adventure, gathering up her litter of eight and high-tailing it back to the Lower 48.

In a bears-and-bullets story line intended to contrast Palin's boasty ruggedness with Gosselin's gun-shy wussiness, Yosemite Sarah squeezed off shotgun blasts with near-cartoonish vigor. This week's excuse for Palin to demonstrate her Second Amendment prowess was a course in bear safety (her contract requires that at least one hail of gunfire per episode).

Last Sunday, under the pretense of filling the freezer for her hungry family, (Operation: Reindeer Slay) she went on a $2.4 million (or whatever) caribou safari. After several entertaining misfires, she "bagged an animal" -- scoring some sweet, free-range caribou meat that the Alaska Dispatch estimated cost $200 a pound.

Hyped as a must-see, reality TV Kodiak moment, the Mama Grizzly drama fizzled when -- after a riveting exchange of horrified grimaces and OMG eye-rolls -- Gosselin bailed on Palin, having endured as much as she could bear.

(Safety tip: If you encounter a Palin in the wild, remain calm and slowly back away while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.)
