Palin to American Choppers: ‘You’ve got that patriotism in you that people just so respect. Thank you for that.’

Thursday episode of “American Chopper” on TLC features an interview with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who is leaning against a bear skin in her office. Hosts Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. are visiting Alaska to create a bike to help commemorate Alaska’s 50th anniversary of statehood. Some highlights from the interview:

Q: So you snowmobile?
PALIN: Oh yeah. Snow machine. Yes.
Q: What kind of snowmobile do you got?
PALIN: We’ve got an Arctic Cat. We’ve got a couple of different kinds. Race machines. I inherit whatever Todd rejects from the year prior. … We love those motor sports.

PALIN: You do so many good things for some of the other states, also. You’ve got that patriotism in you that people just so respect. Thank you for that.
