The First Dude and Greta Van Handler

The First Dude got screwed again at the key party.

I wasn’t going to write about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner because, like Thers (really, do not click the link in his post), I’m not a huge fan of it, but this was too gross not to highlight:

With his wife back in Alaska dealing with a natural disaster, Todd Palin was being led around the brunch by Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, who is apparently his host AND handler.

POLITICO started to chat with Alaska’s “first dude” when Van Susteren intervened. The host of On The Record told us this brunch was “off the record” - no talking with the husband of former Republican vice presidential nominee, Gov. Sarah Palin.

Asked why, Van Susteren told us - as we held pen, pad, recorder and camera in hand - well, you know, at these things you can’t always figure out who’s on the record or off the record when you chit chat. And, she added, with all the background noise Palin could easily be misquoted.

Say what you want about Chris Matthews’ “leg tingle,” but could you ever imagine him doing something like this with, say, Michelle Obama? On three ... one ... two ... three ... *urp*!

Good Lord n’ butter, they’re wearing matching outfits.

Clearly GVS wants to be Todd Palin which has a number of disturbing implications, especially for her husband, ESPECIALLY if he refuses to dye his hair auburn and wear the square glasses.

Sorry, there is something so very wrong here I’m not sure I can watch.

“So that must be fun for you.”  They must have edited out the part where she humped his leg.

The inmates have taken over the Vomitorium.

That is so goddamn creepy.  I knew it would be bad before I clicked Play, but damn…

The stalkerfest aside, this also proves that Greta is probably the worst interviewer on television.  And that’s not an easy trophy in that gang.

(really, do not click the link in his post),

Thanks for the warning.  I hovered my mouse over it, saw the word “vomit” in the title and decided to take your advice.

How soon will the “teleprompter snark” jibes start?

Who bought you that tux First Dude?

Come on, all of us who have been to prom in Wasilla know the proper attire is one of those faux-tux printed t-shirts

Greta does know that Sarah America shoots wolves from airplanes, right?

We all know that Todd was riding John McCain’s snow machine Cindy throughout the campaign.

The only time the Straight Talk Express was rockin’ was while John and Sarah were on the platform…

I just read this in the NY Daily News:

At least one member of the GOP had fun. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin couldn’t make the festivities due to tending to her state’s flooding problem, so she sent hubby, Todd, who had a whale of a time.

Todd happily lapped up the attention from his tablemates and rarely left the side of his date for the evening, Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren.

The two became so close that we caught them hanging out together well past midnight at Capitol File magazine’s annual after-dinner bash.

Oh, really?

Naah.  God doesn’t like me that much.

How soon before the Palin’s become Scientologists?

If the Palins join the super adventure club they’ll have to keep it extra super-duper secret to maintain their fundy cred.

Watch for Todd jumping on Oprah’s couch as a clue.

This whole thing is so profoundly weird. It would be more amusing if the whole cabal didn’t have designs on running the country.
