Mark Halperin: ‘When the Palins Drink, Apparently Exciting Things Happen’

Consensus is that it’s not good form for media people to crack jokes or revel in the misfortune of Sarah Palin‘s family getting in a violent, booze-fueled party fight.

Bloomberg PoliticsMark Halperin didn’t get the memo before an interview between him, his colleague John Heilemann and the New York Times published.

Asked who he’d most like to drink a beer with out of Palin, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, Halperin answered by showing his ass.

“’ll go with Hillary Clinton right now, only because she’s a little more relevant to our forward-looking lives,” he said. “But when the Palins drink, apparently exciting things happen.”

Guffaw!

This comes just after CNN’s Carol Costello gave a meek apology for gleefully introducing audio from the Palin episode by telling her audience to “sit back and enjoy.”
