Fox News' Greta Van Susteren Gets First Palin Interview
Event will air on Monday night's On the Record, broadcasting live from Alaska

Fox News' Greta Van Susteren will have the first post-election sit-down with embattled Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the network confirmed Friday. The interview will take place on Sunday and Monday in Alaska and will air on Monday night's On the Record (10 p.m. ET), which will be broadcast live from Alaska.
Palin has endured a particularly vituperative spate of press since the Republican ticket's defeat on Tuesday night. Sources inside the McCain campaign have cast Palin as an un-informed diva, shopaholic who could not tick off the three countries that make up NAFTA (the U.S., Canada and Mexico) and who ordered campaign aids to put shopping sprees at high end retailers on their personal credit cards.
An anonymous campaign aid described Palin and her husband Todd as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast."
Other revelations to have emerged in the last 72 hours include Palin's push to make her own speech on Tuesday night, which would have been highly unusual for a vice presidential candidate. According to the New York Times, Palin had a speech in hand on Tuesday evening in Phoenix, even after being told by top McCain advisors Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter that she would not be addressing supporters there. Salter again shot her down. During McCain's concession speech, mention of Palin drew voluble booing from the crowd.
Palin will talk to Van Susteren about the bad blood and her political future.

Good for Greta I watch her show every day it's on. I hope Sara Palin doesn't give any interviews with Oprah or The View. The only one on there that isn't stupid is Blondie.

You are so right..wher is John McCain now to support Sarah Palin with all the smears going on against her?

John McCain continues to live up to my expecttions. I have heard
mention that he is such a gratious loser. I agree that he is a loser and
have never understood how he became the Republican candidate. If
Palin had not appeared he would never have come a close as he did.
His tactics, those of a loser, have always been predictable. When the
SC Republican party ran ads depicting Obama and Rev Wright, McCain
jumped in within 15 minutes to chastize the Republicans and defend
Obama. When his former aids attacked Palin, where is John? The
reason his concession speach was so well rehearsed is I believe he
wrote it before his was nominated. Grow up Republicans! Oh yes he
is a Maverick. Yea Judas must have been a Maverick too.
