Let's take a break from politics and talk about something simply ridiculous. Todd Palin's reality show debut.
(Seriously are there any OTHER radio programs named after a failed VP candidate? Is there a "LiebermanNET" radio station? Or a "KempNET" radio station?)
As you can hear Todd was clearly stung by criticism of how he pronounced helicopter (heeelicopter), so you can hear him struggling to pronounce in correctly. However his poor diction and struggle to express himself verbally demonstrate rather clearly why Sarah does all of the talking in the family.
(Apparently in the Heath/Palin clan she is identified as the "smart one.")
At one point in this attempt to pump up the Toad's "machismo" the host and he agree that the toughest job of all is, as Todd puts it, "being a mom," a role that he says he took on when he had his weeks off from working his slope job. (That is of course supported by Joe's book "The Rogue" in which he said that Todd was forced to do all of the housework and parenting while home because Sarah was virtually incapable.)
Perhaps realizing that he has now accidentally revealed Todd's true role as Sarah's little bitch, the host decides to "massage his manhood" a little by asking him how he has kept from punching anybody in the nose in response to the "attacks" on his family. The Toad claims that he is "not going to devote any of my precious time getting in the mud with these guys." Which essentially means that he does not want to get his ass kicked and then have it reported all over the media.
I have to say that I support his decision to stay out of the mud with "guys." I have never heard of male on male mud wrestling to solve a dispute, but I agree that Todd would probably not be very good at it. Despite the fact that we now know he can WALK on mud like a God.
After hearing this interview, which may be the longest I have ever heard Todd Palin speak, I agree he should not do any more of it. After all it is one thing to have people saying that you talk like Tiny Tim on painkillers and quite another to prove it.
