Sarah Palin Mockingly Wishes Katie Couric Well On Her CBS Departure

Sarah Palin and Katie Couric haven’t exactly been one another’s number one fans. You might recall that it was Couric who asked Palin – then John McCain‘s vice presidential running mate – what newspapers she read, prompting Palin’s now notorious and much-lampooned response: “Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.” Here, let’s travel, arm in arm, down memory lane:

So: It’s not terribly surprising that the former Governor of Alaska would publicly mock Couric for leaving her post as anchor of CBS Evening News.

On Tuesday, Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that she wishes Couric well in her quest to move beyond reading a teleprompter. Well, then:

Yeah, and I hear that she wants to now engage in more “multi-dimensional story telling” versus I guess just the “straight on, read into the, that teleprompter screen story telling.” More power to her. I wish her well in her – “multi-dimensional story telling.”

Palin noted that she had read about Couric’s decision “in a newspaper, one of many newspapers that I read online.”
