In an apparent act of desperation or case of brain-fade on the part of the producers, The Today Show has asked former Governor, Sarah Palin to co-host the morning show Tuesday.
Today posed the question “Are you excited for Sarah Palin’s big show?” on their Facebook page and the thousands of comments prove the answer to that question is a resounding “NO!”
Many viewers pun that they will “go rogue” tomorrow and miss the show as a result of Palin hosting. Other comments reveal the majority are disgusted with the choice. The comment “Palin is a media whore and NBC is stupid to cater to her. NBC has lost ALL credibility” seems to be the overall feeling of those who usually tune in.
Of course there are a few who are happy to watch the Pit Bull With Lipstick push her agenda on the morning show but she has lost her luster for the majority of thinking Americans. The recent film Game Change showed everyone beyond a shadow of a doubt that Palin is an empty dress chasing after the almighty dollar.
NBC made a very poor choice in Palin. It begs the question: Who will be their next choice to co-host the show? George Zimmerman?
