Sarah Palin Finally Does ‘That Ice Bucket Water Dump Thing’

You would have thought Sarah Palin would have jumped on this bandwagon ages ago. But it wasn’t until this weekend that the former governor of Alaska and current media mogul decided to get in on the summer’s biggest viral trend after getting nominated by Wasilla Arctic Cat, which makes the snowmobiles her family loves so much.

“At this stage of my life, of my career, aren’t I a little too prim and proper for all that ice bucket water dump thing?” Palin asked.

Palin took a page out of Patrick Stewart’s book, putting the emphasis on the check she was writing (and bragging about doubling the required amount), then using the ice to make drink (Diet Dr. Pepper instead of scotch). But don’t worry, thanks to someone off-camera, you still get to see Palin scream in agony as cold water is abruptly poured over her head, possibly ruining the whopping $200 check she had just finished writing.

As for who Palin nominated, she chose former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and “he whom she recently said is her favorite Republican” (burn), John McCain.
