New video has surfaced of former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, last seen giving an unhinged speech at the Democrat Convention, as a contestant on The Dating Game in 1978.
It’s at the same time kind of fun and kind of creepy. Yes, she was 19, and it for the most part should be laughed off as a youthful indiscretion. I’ll probably think of her as her generation’s version of a reality show fame shill from now on, though.
But, on the other hand, her facial tics and awkward behavior kind of foreshadow her bizarre performance at the 2012 DNC. It’s a little eerie. You can really see glimpses of what she became.
There’s definitely something off there. Hate to say it, but I’m wondering if a little something didn’t go up her nose before she burst onto the stage. Ditto that for the 1978 clip, too.
Anyway, here it is.
