Go Todd!

Man has Greta van Susteren been lying down on the job recently. Not one peep about the First Dude, Todd Palin, in the past month! That's gotta be some record for the lady who is patently a little sweet on Sarah Palin's man.

I reckon Monday's telecast might change that though.

Sunday, 8 February 2009, marked the beginning of the gruelling Alaska race on "snowmachines", known as the Tesoro Iron Dog Challenge.

That's 1971 grizzly miles in sub-zero temperatures, often at a 100 mph clip, across the landscape of the Great State of Alaska. They start off in Big Lake Alaska, work themselves around to Nome, and supposedly will finish this year in Fairbanks.

Will Todd Palin and his partner, Scott Davis, be able to five-peat as champs? We shall see.

Here is Governor Sarah Palin giving her old man a good luck kiss before setting off. Piper seems amused.



Palin gives the green 'go' flag.



I just hope no one is hurt this year, as Todd Palin broke his hand last year, nevertheless finishing the race. John McCain seemed almost mesmerised by this fact, and mentioned it constantly on the campaign trail.

Hey, Todd Palin may not be a "maverick" but he is one tough hombre, he seemed to say.

(Yeah? So why didn't they use this chap to the fullest of his potential during the campaign? What a crock)

Good luck, Todd!

    I hate to break it to you, but its snowmobile racing. Someone always gets hurt. Particularly, someone always misjudges the ice when crossing a lake and goes into the drink.

  • I concur with starless. Snowmobile racing isn't for wussies.

    As far why Todd Palin wasn't used optimally, I rather suspect that it was his own doing this time around. And I don't mean that in a mean or critical way. The guy must have incredible instincts to be so lucky. He will play his hand one day.
