Barbara Walters tries to find Sarah Palin a job

Wanna be president? Talk show host? A reality TV star? Sarah Palin says she’d rather write a book. For now.

But she’s not exactly pushing a heavy chest of drawers in front of any 2012 doors that might open.

ABC News has a taste of what aired on ‘Good Morning America’ and what we’ll see later this week, between Barbara Walters and the former governor of Alaska.

In a shocking turn of events, Barbara brings up Tina Fey (an actress whom some people in remote parts of Russia may not know won an Emmy for her portrayal of Palin).


Sarah uses the moment to clear up who said the whole ‘from my porch’ line, and later hurls the phrase ‘bull crap’ -- after Barbara brings up how the Palin family and Alaska have been treated.

Looks as if this one is going to have a bit more drama than Oprah Winfrey‘s turn Monday. Though it’s all very polished indeed.

Make sure to wait for the David Letterman dig too.

[FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this post referred to the interview as airing ‘later today.’ When the post went live, ‘Good Morning America’ had already aired.]
