Sarah Palin to co-host 'Today' show as Katie Couric sits in on 'GMA'

New York (CNN) - Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will co-host NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday, according to Megan Kopf, a spokeswoman for NBC Universal.

"She'll reveal a different side of her than you've seen before," the morning show's website boasted Sunday.

    I have one question; Why? I don't recall other previous VP Candidates being allowed this opportunity. If she starts her political garbage against Obama, are they going to go to color bars, Please stand by slate? Ooopps. I guess that is two questions.

    I feel sorry for this helpless Woman, who have no clue which side She is heading at.
    Probably, it's just a complex Mind-Set issues, that distracted her life skills and She become unsecured with some terrible consequences.

    I wish her all for the best.

    This is suprising the way she talks about the main stream media I don't get it. Why elevate this controversial figure all she does is castigate the media and laugh at them.

    At least it will be scripted, hopefully we won't be subjected to any of her hate filled rhetoric. Looks like we know who ABC and NBC don't want in the White House.

    OBAMA 2012!

    At first I thought and prayed that it was an April 1st joke. When I realized it wasn't and stopped asking myself why nbc would stoop this low I realized that the today show just jump the shark.
    Guess what today show? Starting today we are no longer watching the news on channel 4 in the morning, which is a shame because we like the new male host who just started today, but we want to make sure that any TV in our house is NOT tuned to nbc at 7a from now until eternity.
    Good Morning American it is now in our house! You prostituted yourself for the bimbo and you need to pay the price.

    I guess cnn didn't like the word for the oldest profession in the world so I'll make this one short and sweet.
    The today show just jumped the shark by having the imbecilic moron from AK on its show even for one second.
    From now on, in our house, it's Good Morning America. Too bad because we were looking forward to the new am co host on channel 4 in DC.

    For a party about to nominate a Mormon flip flop artiat it's no suprise that the former VP candidaate that railed against the "lame stream mdia" is now a part of it.

    I will NEVER again watch or support anything to do with NBC Universal. What we need from Sarah is for her to go home to Alaska. She has done quite enough damage here in the lower 48!!!

    She doesn't pass up a chance at being on-stage, does she? Isn't this part of what she calls the "lame stream media?".

    'Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin'

    Her title grows ever longer.
    Her voice is horrible and shrill. Her sentence structure and vocabulary are awful.
    She will be in her preening glory on that day.
