Maureen Dowd phoned into the third day of "Way Too Early With Willie Geist" at 5:45 am on Wednesday.
Dowd talked to Geist about her Palin column and expressed her love for the former Alaska governor.
"I love Sarah Palin. I mean, I love her more than anyone. As a journalist she is the best story ever," Dowd enthused. "You've got this former beauty queen and sportcaster who's in the role of Dick Cheney... She is the first person to ever fuse politics with reality tv."
