It turns out, the GOP hopeful graduated with a degree in journalism and actually had a short stint as a sports reporter in Anchorage. From Wikipedia...
Palin holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Idaho where she also minored in politics. She briefly worked as a sports reporter for local Anchorage television stations while also working as a commercial fisherman with her husband, Todd, her high school sweetheart.I guess being a "sports reporter" in Alaska means you say the word hockey a lot, and that is probably good from a woman that proclaims herself to be a "hockey mom."
If the world wide webs had been around back in her younger days, Palin might have actually been the first coming of Erin Andrews. Sarah was runner-up in the Miss Alaska competition in 1984, something I can only imagine does not have a score for best tan.
It seems the political world is getting a lot more sporty. After George W. Bush heads back to the Texas Rangers, we could have a basketball and golf playing president, or a former sports reporter that graduated with the same degree as a bunch of bloggers! Who said our country's in trouble?
