Sarah Palin May Beat Katie Couric at Her Own Game (VIDEO)

Sarah PalinGet your coffee ready; you're going to want to be wide awake this week when it comes to the morning talk shows. As if it weren't exciting enough that Katie Couric is going to be co-hosting Good Morning America, now her former home, the Today show, has announced that they're adding a jolt this week by welcoming none other than Sarah Palin as co-host this Tuesday. And no, it's no April Fool's Day prank.

Can you say brilliant? It's hard to forget the interview Couric did with Palin in 2008 that went all sorts of wrong for Palin. It was the one in which she blundered on about Alaska being close to Russia, thereby giving her foreign policy cred, and in which she couldn't name any periodicals she'd read. Basically, it pretty much made her look pretty silly.

Now it's Palin's turn to get some revenge of sorts, and I think she just may best Katie at her own game.

Politically, I'm not a fan of Palin. I shudder to think of her leading our country, BUT I do think she's a fascinating, smart, and engaging woman. I think co-hosting the Today show is a perfect place for her, and I can't wait to see what she brings.

More from The Stir: Katie Couric Co-Hosting 'GMA' May Be a Little TOO Stimulating

I've long been a fan of Katie, but with her we know what to expect -- bubbly, cute, smiley, personable. Great, but I think Sarah will bring all that and more, and I think people want to see what Sarah has to offer -- even if they say they can't stand her.

On the Today show website, they promise, "She'll reveal a different side of her than you've seen before." I can't imagine what that might be, but I'll be tuning in, you betcha.

Who would you rather watch in the morning -- Katie Couric or Sarah Palin?

If Katie is going to Good Morning America I will be going back to watching the Today show. I stopped watching because of Katie. Looking forward to seeing what Sarah Palin has to offer.

I have watched the today show for years, but if they take on Palin, I'll watch GMA.  I cannot STAND Sarah Palin.

"made her look pretty silly"? No, it made her look incredibly stupid. Because she IS incredibly stupid. How people can think that she might be presidential material is beyond me.

Opinions is what keeps the ratings up!  Hee Hee, go Sarah.. never thought the day would come where mainstream media lets in a true tea party conservative, maybe Today realizes that the grass is not as green with only liberals opinions.  ~ let's play in wide open pastures!

This is why women cannot get along. Because they are so insulting and degrading to other women when they dont agree
