Looking at Sarah Palin's new book, Going Rogue: An American Life, NBC's Andrea Mitchell caught a passage about herself in which Palin recalled that when she invited some reporters to go fishing with her this past July that "I wanted to see Andrea and her colleagues sporting fish-slimed waders, banging around in a skiff, stuck in the mud," but, she regretted, the weather was too good so "dang it - none of them got slimed."
On Sunday's NBC Nightly News, Mitchell recounted, over video (with the book text over-layed) of Mitchell and Palin on a boat:
Remember when we went fishing with her after she resigned as Governor? Palin writes: "Now I wanted to see Andrea and her colleagues sporting fish-slimed waders, banging around in a skiff, stuck in the mud and trying to pull themselves back over the bow. At the very least they'd see there was no diva in me."
But the weather didn't cooperate. She writes: "It was sunny, hot and flat calm, so - dang it - none of them got slimed."- Brent Baker is Vice President for Research and Publications at the Media Research Center
