Musto Does Palin in Drag


Village Voice columnist Michael Musto appeared on MSNBC's Countdown in drag on Wednesday to deliver the speeches former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin prepared for election night last year but never got the opportunity to deliver.

According to the new book Sarah From Alaska by Scott Conroy and Shushannah Walshe, the speeches were readied for Palin on election night, tailored to the two possible outcomes, but her running mate, John McCain, balked at the possibility.

MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell, who subbed for Keith Olbermann on Wednesday, introduced Musto's performance as "never-before-seen footage of the former vice-presidential candidate going rogue and delivering the speech the McCain campaign did not want you to see."

In the speeches, Palin apparently planned to present her husband Todd to the nation as "the first dude."
