But now, Jennifer Granholm can be remembered for something else. In the Internet age, almost nothing stays hidden forever. Jennifer Granholm is the subject of a humorous video flashback, after someone posted video of her 1978 appearance on "The Dating Game.""Let's give a hand for the cute and curvaceous Jennifer Granholm," says the show's host, Jim Lange, when the future governor first appears on-screen.Granholm has continued on that path as a career public servant who served as Michigan’s governor during one of the largest economic crises in the state’s history.
(Story tip for Breitbart.com: if she won the prize but did not accept it, was she still liable for the taxes, and did she pay? ) We have no political ambitions whatsoever, but are nonetheless relieved that no photographic existence exists of the powder blue leisure suit, which was only slightly less tacky than the host’s tux-like garment here, that we wore at our 8th-grade graduation.
She gave a memorable speech at the recent Democratic National Convention. Others said former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm fired up the crowd. A 19-year-old Granholm, then an aspiring actress, was introduced as "curvey and cute" and looked every inch a bombshell, 1970's style, with tight jeans, suspenders and big Farrah Fawcett hair.
You can watch the video appearance below: That should make sense to anyone who caught Granholm's unusually expressive speech before the Democratic National Convention early this month."I'm a Democrat of the liberal persuasion, and I have always admired Jennifer Granholm," said Marty Nislick, who spotted the video on Facebook and posted it to You Tube.
"And she was 19 years old, so I think she could be excused for being on a stupid show."Granholm's former spokeswoman Liz Boyd says she emailed the video to her old boss on Thursday and that the two could "barely say hello to each other," because they were laughing so hard."Alas, this is what being a teenager in the '70s gets you: I was having a bad hair decade!
In the appearance, Granholm has very big hair and is wearing a puffy-sleeved blouse with gray suspenders.
