'Thanks So Much For Going Up Next To The Fish And Getting The Interview'

How brave of Kate Snow.  Not only making the trek to Flyover Country North, but even getting close to some yucky fish. That seemed to be Diane Sawyer's attitude in congratulating Snow for snagging an interview with Sarah Palin.

The soon-to-be-former Governor of Alaska invited Snow out for some salmon fishing.  At one point the intrepid ABC reporter observes to Palin: "you have some fish guts on you."

Back in the studio, Sawyer saluted Snow's guts.

DIANE SAWYER: OK, Kate.  Thanks so much for going up next to the fish and getting the interview.
