Like any good feminist, Sarah asks her husband to tell her what her opinion is
On Saturday, as Washington's media elite were gathered at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner to laugh their asses off at Donald Trump's expense, there was one very important missing: Sarah Palin. But she had a good reason.
Sarah Palin boasted to a group of anti-abortion advocates Saturday that she had a chance to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner — but chose to spend her time with them instead.
"The pro-life cause or White House Correspondents' Dinner? I choose life," Palin told a crowd of about 200 at a fundraiser for the anti-abortion advertising group Heroic Media.
Palin said journalism's nerd prom didn't have the same appeal for her as presidential hopefuls who attended, like Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman. "You really see evidence of that influence out there of — you know — the celebrity, how the news is, and the political arena, and how it all kind of meshes together. That's what the White House Correspondents' Dinner is," she said.
And lord knows Sarah certainly wouldn't want to be caught rubbing elbows with celebrities of the lamestream media at the Correspondents' dinner.
The MSNBC after party, however, is another matter.
Palin attended as a guest of her BFF from Fox, Greta Van Susteren, and was asked, as were many attendees, who she thinks is the most influential journalist today. And that's where things got tricky.
But while most of the attendees had no problem coming up with answers (Eliot Spitzer said Brian Williams, as did Andrea Mitchell, while SNL's Bill Hader went for The New Yorker's David Grann), Palin fumbled when asked.
"Oh my goodness, that's a great question," she said, before turning to her husband Todd and asking for his input.
O.K., let's pause right there. Sarah Palin, the mother of all the mama grizzlies and self-appointed pioneer of a new wave of feminism, needs to ask her husband to tell her what her opinion is?
And didn't she study journalism at some of the five different colleges she attended? That's why she's so passionate about wanting to "help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism." But she can't name a single journalist, while she's actually standing in a room full of, you know, journalists? Not even the name of the journalist who brought her to the party?
Nope, and neither could Todd. Which is why she finally said, "Um, gosh, that's a great question, I have to think about it, OK? Because there are many."
Yep, she's gonna look up the name of a journalist—right after she finishes looking up the names of some newspapers and Supreme Court decisions.
But after some long hard thinking, she finally gave her answer:
As Palin walked away from the camera, she ran into her Fox News pal Greta Van Susteren, and then turned back to the NBC cameras to shout, "Greta Van Susteren is the most influential journalist!"
