Judge Judy is welcoming Sarah Palin with open arms to the battlefield of TV judge shows ... or is she?
Judy was out in Bev Hills when we asked her about Palin's new deal to star in a judge show produced by the same exec who gave Judy her big break.
Her reaction is congenial at first -- she's even got a little advice for Sarah ... who does not have a law degree or any courtroom experience, by the way.
But you gotta see which Palin question made Judy give our guy the finger. Her famous index, not the middle one. What are ya, stupid?
