Last night, Greta van Susteren of FOX News “On the Record” broadcast the first mainstream media interview of “First Dude” Todd Palin. Greta traveled to Alaska for the interview.
I love the bit where Greta and Todd are walking around outside the Palin home and in the background you can see a lawnmower. It’s just such a normal average person thing to have around the house.
Both Palins seem to me like regular down to earth people. I suspect many Washington insiders – the kind that like to summer on Nantucket and attend gala functions in black tie- are still recovering from the shock of this interview. Imagine the audacity of the Palins to think they could enter the powerful political tier of Washington society! I would guess the Washington elites haven’t been this rattled since Bill Clinton from Arkansas came to town. Oh the horror!
Bonus: Gum chewing, baby totting, stand by your man ’cause he just won a snowmobile race Sarah Palin back in 1995, shown during Greta’s “On the Record” interview with Todd Palin.
