Former Alaska Temp-Governor Sarah Palin was a temp-waitress on her unreality TV show last week. Mrs. Palin waited tables at Peggy’s Airport Cafe in Anchorage (1675 E. Fifth Avenue, try the pies). She staged the event to show 9 year old daughter Piper “what it was like to be on your feet all day, work extremely hard and wait on people.” The presence of the professional video crew was purely coincidental.
Service was even slower than usual at Peggy’s that day, as Sarah the hard workin’ waitress spent all her time getting her picture taken with customers. Then again, Mrs. Palin’s whole career has been one long photo op.
“Mom is doing horrible as a waitress,” said Piper. “I wouldn’t tip her because she spends too much time at the tables talking.”
