Obligatory “Sarah Palin Joins Lamestream Media” Clip

The former Alaska governor, vice- presidential candidate, and Tina-Fey-look-alike was a "co-host" on NBC's Today show this morning, and she showed the gang at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (once again) that she can take a joke as well as anybody, including the jokers on the regular cast, all of whom are obviously charmed to death by her when they actually meet her. Matt Lauer, of course, could barely contain being a sorehead when she was using his dressing room. We wonder to ourselves, is she like that in person? (We're gonna bet Matt Lauer is; what a poseur!) Meanwhile, here are a few of the highlights from that show.

We also got to thinking about the beginnings of that show, and how its first host, Dave Garroway, used to end his program, as far back as the mid-1950s, by giving the "peace sign" as shown here. Of course, it had yet to evolve into the letter-form we know today. The first to use the peace sign, and the first to make Sarah Palin part of the "lamestream media." The show is quite the ground-breaker, don't you think?

Or don't you?
