Former Gov. Sarah Palin graces The Today Show Tuesday
Katie Couric ignored Palin and her debut in Katie’s old seat. She now hosts GMA. Sarah seemed fired up. I taped her debut but have not watched it yet. Had to leave early this am and I have a hot yoga class tonight. Gotta keep the yoga booty going LOL.
And in case you were unaware a person keeps the title for life once elected to any office or if they have earned a degree such as MD they are always referred to as Doctor even if retired. BTW only MDs are doctors the PhDs are “doctors of philosophy” but not doctors. They hold a doctorate–
MD means medical doctor no other degree says that.
And within the first few minutes of NBC’s popular morning program, it was clear that Palin had a strategy for handling the show that was once hosted by Couric – plenty of self-deprecating humor. By contrast, Couric’s approach was to completely ignore Palin; she made no reference to the 2008 race or her blockbuster interview with the then-vice presidential candidate that many credited with dooming the GOP ticket.
The first glimpse viewers of the “Today” show got of Palin was her head buried behind an open newspaper.
“Oh, man, she’s doing her homework!” co-host Matt Lauer said.
