“First Dude” Dodges Fox News’s “Are You Cold” Queries

Gibson’s “Get” wasn’t the only one to be gotten. Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren got the “first interview” with Todd Palin, Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband and kicked off last night’s Part 2 of said interview (while donning a North Face puffy vest) by really trying to pin Palin down, to get Palin to own up to… sometimes being cold.

How cold does it get up there on the North Slope [where Palin works as a production operator for BP]?

How cold is cold?

What do you do? How do you stay warm? The rest of us don’t work on the North Slope.

How do you stay, I mean, 40-below with the wind, that’s, I mean, you can just bundle up so much, you’re still cold aren’t you?

So when it’s blowing like crazy, you’re not cold up there?

Van Susteren also got Mr. Palin “On the Record” with answers to these:

So you have fish, moose and caribou in the freezer? That’s pretty typical for around here?

You like moose meat? Better than caribou?

What’s left to have covered in part 1 of the interview? I’m going to go take a look…
