No, you read that right. The Rosie O’Donnell, who famously blubbered that terrorists are mothers and fathers and believes 9/11 was an inside job… actually said something decent about the Guv.
Shortly following Election Day 2008, O’Donnell admitted that Governor Palin isn’t such a monster, after all. She even wanted to meet her:
“I’d like to have a beer with her,” O’Donnell told Extra. “I’d like to meet her kids. She seems like a pretty nice woman. Although I have to say, I am thrilled her party did not win. [But] you got to give it to her for spunk.”
So what could the lipstick pitbull and the outspoken comedienne possibly have in common? Rosie admits she’s got a soft spot for Palin’s tenacity and ambition.
“I think I probably would like her [Palin] if I met her. She had an amazing life for herself and her family in Alaska. Very successful. Before you knew it, she was the most famous person in the country.” (Emphasis added)
I, for one, would very much enjoy such a meeting of the minds (well, one mind, at least). Given Governor Palin’s libertarian views on alcohol, perhaps this would be a step up from the lame “beer summits” our current POTUS likes to hold. Although, I would let Biden go to this one, too, if only so he can feel like he’s being useful. Nicole, I know you don’t drink, but you’re welcome to tag along as the designated driver. You in?
