Here Is A Video Of Sarah Palin Petting An Alligator


Sarah Palin went down to Louisiana Saturday to help raise money for Republican US Senate candidate Rob Maness. Maness—who is challenging incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu—and Palin served alligator dishes to around 100 attendees, according to local CBS affiliate WWL.

Here is a video of Palin petting an alligator.

At press time it was not clear if the alligator she was petting was also the alligator she later served as a meal. We’re guessing it wasn’t.
