Rosie O’Donnell says she’d enjoy having a beer with Sarah Palin

Rosie O’Donnell has said she’d like to have a beer with former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin if she could. O’Donnell had nothing but nice things to say about her, while admitting that she’s psyched her party didn’t win the election. She says Palin has a lot of spunk and has lived an interesting life and became internationally famous overnight.

Despite their political differences, Rosie O’Donnell wouldn’t mind grabbing drinks with Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

“I’d like to have a beer with her. I’d like to meet her kids. She seems like a pretty nice woman,” O’ Donnell told Extra. “Although I have to say, I am thrilled her party did not win. [But] you got to give it to her for spunk.”

The ultra-liberal O’ Donnell admitted, “I think I probably would like her if I met her….She had an amazing life for herself and her family in Alaska. Very successful. Before you knew it, she was the most famous person in the country.”

But that’s not to say the Barack Obama supporter would have been celebrating a John McCain presidential win.

“If McCain won…I would be in the depression unit of the ICU,” O’ Donnell quipped.

When you put it in those terms, I think I’d like to have a beer with Sarah Palin too. I disagreed with just about every word out of that woman’s mouth, but Rosie is right: she’s been in a position only one other woman has ever been in as a potential vice president. Even though I sometimes had violent thoughts after hearing her speak, I’d love to pick her brains and ask her about a million questions. Though something tells me that after the Katie Couric interview debacle, Palin is going to be a little more wary of answering questions.

    A short conversation then? 😉

    Not for even a lifetime’s worth of free beer.

  2. RAN says:

    I agree with Rosie, this would be a hilarious conversation. Think about it… you’re in a bar with this woman who spouts nonsense left and right. After a few beers, you wouldn’t be able to NOT tell her how stupid it all was and she’d keep rambling on, just to keep you laughing. I have a penchant for stupid humor, so I can see the hilarity in this. 😉

  3. Alecto says:

    I think Rosie has a crush.

  4. Rosebudd says:

    Rosie wld. probably have beer or three hundred with just about anybody that wld. agree to have one with her. Rosie, lay off the sauce. Yes, beer is alcohol. That aside, Palin does seem spunky and fun for a slumber party but not vice president.

  5. okay... says:

    Agreed Alecto-Rosie thinks Sarah is a hottie. 🙂

    “I sometimes had violent thoughts after hearing her speak…”

    You and a too-significant part of the country. I’ll be having nightmares about Palin’s Klan rallies for years.

    Geraldine Ferraro ran for vice president on the democratic ticket with Walter Mondale in 1984. I wish people would stop ignoring that Palin was NOT the first woman to run for VP.

  8. Rougelatete says:

    @ Alecto: don’t all men have a crush on Palin? Oh wait, Rosie’s not a….

  9. RReedy says:

    I am glad to hear Rosie say this…maybe she is mellowing out. She generally seems to full of angst and anger.

  10. mollination says:

    @above comment: So does Palin. Perfect match.

    I think it would be interesting to have a convo with this woman if it weren’t for the fact that she is permanantly on “PC Mode” and she would never give you a straight answer on anything.

  11. Kristin says:

    Lmfao @ “Slumber party.” 🙂

    But I do agree with you RReedy, she has gotten calmer (so it seems) and I like seeing her like his rather than in a tangent.

    Not for all the Spotted Cows in New Glarus.

    The woman must be one of seven people on this earth that can sour my beer-buzz.

  13. Christina X says:

    Wow. This is certainly different.

    While I think that Sarah Palin is an airhead, I think it’s really endearing to see Rosie O’Donnell of all people drop her guard like this.

    O’Donnell’s a very outspoken, if not stubborn liberal. Are we starting to see a happier, less hot headed side of Rosie?

  14. Yourself says:

    I can have a beer with Palin but with… pre-conditions. I would ask that she gets a voice over. Her voice seriousy grates at my nerves.

  15. Baholicious says:

    I would have thought Rosie would be more interested in a clambake with Palin 😀 POW! that was bad 😯

  16. Jenna says:

    I’d talk to her just to hear her say ‘Mavericks’ like Tina Fey. That is hilarious to me anyways. 😛
