Sarah Palin's 'Today' Show Appearance Is Already a Joke (VIDEO)

LOL 28

sarah palin on the today showYou're probably well aware by now that Sarah Palin has been tapped to make a guest appearance as a co-host with Ann Curry and Matt Lauer on the Today show tomorrow a.m. WHY?! Well, Meredith Vieira has a snarky theory. (And this is not just hearsay, people!) The Today icon spoke with Palin today when she called the show and thanked NBC for showing "boldness" in its decision to have her on, you know, because it goes against them looking like regular, ol' "lamestream media." Sarah also gushed that it showed NBC possesses a "diversity of opinion." Meredith's reaction? "... or desperation."

HA! How in-your-face amazing is that?! Because, really, let's be honest: For what other reason would NBC have Sarah on? 

What does she actually have to contribute to the conversation? It's such a complete ratings stunt. Especially to put her up against her "nemesis" Katie Couric. (Gotta love when old white men decide to pit two women against one another, thinking that's somehow the epitome of must-watch TV.)

Thankfully, the ludicrous nature of Sarah's appearance didn't go unnoticed by Matt Lauer either. When he chatted with Sarah this morning along with Mere, Lauer asked the Grizzly Mom point blank if she was reading newspapers to prepare for her appearance -- a joke that brought to memory the airheaded response Palin gave when she was running for, oh, you know, just the office of the vice-president of the United States! Sarah was a good sport, replying, "That's a fine how do you do. That's a great start. Here we go!"

Too bad she doesn't realize that these passive-aggressive jabs had a lot of power behind them. Clearly, Mere and Matt aren't fans of Palin and felt it necessary to put her in her place. I'm really impressed by how bold they were, actually, to bash the decision-making from the top. But you know, whoever made the call to invite Palin on totally deserves it.

Here's the clip of her call on the show today ...

I am not a fan of Palin but I gotta admire her bravery for going where she is not liked at all and sticking to it. She could have backed out and didn't.

I think the tension is snows up for ratings. It makes better TV if they don't get along. Palin is good in this role and should stick to it. She was good on her reality show too. She is a much better TV personality than politician

I simply can’t believe the show is lowering itself to these TV Trash standards.  I was never Couric’s fault that Sarah Palin has the education level of a 4th grader and the world knowledge of a hermit crab.  They’re buying into the political circus for ratings and it’s a damn shame.  Of course, Sarah will do ANYTHING for money and attention.   The dollars will rain down as she gives them another sneak peek at what’s under that dress.  See just how nasty America’s Top MILF will get for the cash at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html

This isn't as bad as the joke that Obama is our president.

Brandt, can you possibly convey your distaste for Ms. Palin without being so crass?  She's not my cup of tea, either, but I just won't watch her on NBC.  Not that that will affect their ratings, I rarely watch NBC news either, and I never watch Today on the weekdays.  Please, show a little more class.

You must be one miserable blogger. First the blog about th wedding on the CMAs, and now this. If you dont like her, dont watch it. You dont have to watch the show. I personally think Matt and Meredith were being rude. But that is how most liberals are. Snarky and nasty to people they disagree with.

I think Matt and Meredith sound like miserable old crows.

LOL! Conservative right wingers are the crudest folks out - does Rush Limbaugh come to mind or for that matter the gaggle of sycophants at Faux news? Palin is moron - it makes me shudder that this imbecile could have been a heartbeat away from being POTUS had McCain won and experience a medical issue. "I can see Russia from my backyard,,," Dumb as an ox.

Trinigurl, Palin never ever said that. It was joke that Tine Fey said.

You talking about Rush? So you are really saying all those liberals who called conservative women cunts, bitches, ignorant and a host of other names get a free pass?
