The first of April and foolery usually go hand in hand, but I'm not joking when I report that Governor Palin will be co-hosting The Today Show on Tuesday. Yes, that Today Show--on NBC!
She retweeted this tweet:
Tuesday @todayshow exclusive: @SarahPalinUSA live in studio. A side you haven't seen...More to come
Some people have voiced disagreement that Governor Palin is giving NBC the ratings boost they are sure to receive when she appears on Tuesday. But this is actually quite sweet. After an exclusive interview with the Governor, Breitbart News reports:
When news broke that Katie Couric will be filling in for Robin Roberts next week on ABC's "Good Morning America," the country yawned. Or, at least we did, until we learned that NBC plans to pit "The Rogue Warrior" against "The Perky One": Sarah Palin will be guest-hosting "Today" this Tuesday.
Palin and Couric will be squaring off, in a sense, for the first time since their controversial interview on the 2008 campaign trail.
While some would rather see her diss NBC for their numerous disses of her, as is often the case, the Governor sees things quite clearly. She's keeping her eyes on the bigger picture. Concerning Tuesday, she says:
I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC. We’re 'going rogue' and infiltrating some turf for a day.
What about taking on Katie Couric? Perhaps that's the sweetest part. "Game on," Governor Palin says.
I like the sound of that.
