Sarah Palin, Star Sports Anchor

by

comment

Two nights ago, Gov. Sarah Palin gave an historic speech in front of the Republican National Convention.

20 years ago, Sarah Heath (as she was then known) was a weekend sports anchor on a low-budget Alaska television station.

Video has surfaced of Palin's stint on KTUU-TV in Anchorage, Alaska, and it's embedded below. Watch it now, before Karl Rove and the Republican politicking machine get it taken down.

I'm not sure what dates this clip more: Palin's hilariously 80's hair, or how many of those NHL teams no longer exist. Also, notice how the lead story is on the Iditarod. Only in Alaska, I suppose. The aspiring VP is a pretty awkward sports anchor, as it turns out, but at least she's better than this guy.

This got me thinking, though: how long before we see the legendary Tom Messner running for public office? And isn't "Marselis for President" a brilliant slogan to campaign by?
