I came across this article “Sarah Palin co-hosts NBC’s ‘Today,’ pokes fun of herself by reading newspapers, writing notes on hand”on the Daily News’ website and it caught my eye. This article takes me back to the class discussion we had the other day on the news clip about Jon Stewart calling out on Gretchen Carlson for "Dumbing Herself Down.”
So 4 years later after the 2008 Presidential Election, Sarah Palin is brought on the Today Show, and she pokes fun at herself, do you think she’s doing it just to please people? She is obviously an intelligent woman, who otherwise wouldn’t have gotten as far as to being the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 presidential election if it wasn’t for her credentials, right?? Either way, do you think the producers of the Today Show asked her to poke fun of herself or that was Palin’s decision?
