No Fish Guts, No Glory: Brave ABC Reporter Covers Palin Doing Icky Stuff

posted at 9:53 am on July 7, 2009 by

I think this is part of why so many members of the media would like for Sarah Palin to go away — because if she doesn’t, they’re going to have to keep following her into yucky situations that give them the oogies. Sarah’s got to get a kick out of it.

You can almost see the reporter wondering why the fish pulled from the water wasn’t wearing its Gorton’s box.

At the end of this short clip, you’ve got to love how Diane Sawyer thanks the reporter for selflessly getting so close to some fish in order to score the Palin interview. Eat this, Ernie Pyle:

Thought of the Day: Obama and the Democratic Congress are doing to this country what Michael Jackson did to his face.

Did the reporterette ask if the waders came from NeimanMarcus? Do the tools even know that this is how the Palin family earned a living before Mom became a governor? Sarah ain’t a quitter, folks.

Sarah Palin bumpersticker- I’d rather be gutting the media but this will do for now.

C4P has a round up of interviews. I watched the one with Andrea Mitchell. At about 3:00 minutes into it, Sarah has just told Andrea, “You’re not listening to me!”

Then AM asked about her wanting to stay in the “bright lights” and Sarah pointed out that she has fish slime on her right now.

Then she took AM out in the boat.

Ah… good times, good times.

As they showed Sarah in her waders, I couldn’t help thinking that Reagan had his ranch and Sarah has fish guts. That’s reality and it comes across.

Covering a fishing event while in heels and Prada is hard!

Once again Sarah had the media cover her on her terms not theirs. Can’t wait til she starts in on Letterman. He’ll wish he worked for the post office when she’ through with him.
