Anchor Katie Couric’s cringe-inducing interview with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin may have taken place nearly four years ago, but there still seems to be some bad blood between the two leading women. Even so, the television host, whose new daytime show Katie is set to air later this year, would be happy to have the Alaskan make a guest appearance on the program.

It’s unusual for left-leaning activists to jump to former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s defense, but Noam Chomsky did just that by saying the Alaskan was dead-on with her criticism of Barack Obama’s “hope” and “change” campaign.

Despite the rocks on her finger, big time pop singer Jennifer Lopez is still “Jenny from the Block.” Similarly, “Dancing with the Stars” finalist Bristol Palin is still the huntin’ and fishin’ girl from Wasilla. More importantly, she is a child of God, says the “Not Afraid of Life” author.

If there’s anything I can say with full confidence, it’s that high school students can be incredibly clueless, unintelligent, and self-centered, so I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Willow Palin’s long-time male friend invited her to the prom in a very cute and creative manner. Of course, he also just published dozens of private photos of the former governor of Alaska’s daughter on the Internet so… maybe this one is a wash.

“The View” host Joy Behar sunk to a new low during a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Last Word,” where she said former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has no place in the political discussion and should be working on a “game show” somewhere, insinuating that the ex-pageant participant should just capitalize on her looks rather than do something of immense substance.

Why is she still involved in the conversation politically?”

I wrote earlier of my relief that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s Tuesday “Today” show guest appearance was drama-free, civil, and entertaining as opposed to a hostile, “Gladiator” esque spectacle many seemed to want. The former vice presidential candidate’s daughter, Bristol enjoyed the segment as well but couldn’t resist taking a shot at the media anyway.

Many watched former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s Tuesday “Today” show appearance in anticipation of drama or tension of some sort, but for the most part, there was a lot of civility, even among those who are at odds with the conservative political figure.

The media can be pretty unkind to celebrities, but we’ll never fully understand the defense of former holier-than-thou singer Jessica Simpson, whose tactless statements about food and digestion were somehow perceived as cute and endearing in her 2003 reality show, “Newlyweds.”
