Sarah Palin, Katie Couric, and the press in general


If you really want to know what you are going to get if you vote for the McCain/Palin ticket, there are a few things you can do.

First, take a look at John McCain’s actions, and reactions in the last few days.  Who “suspends” their Presidential campaign for a bill in the Senate?  You can simply take a few days off from campaigning without “officially suspending” your campaign.  David Letterman was right; “This is really starting to smell”.  He flew off to Washington, after lying to David Letterman, and arrived there where nobody really wanted him.  The repubicans in Washington can’t stand the guy and he’s only there to try and get credit for something because his campaign is in the tank.

Now go watch Sarah Palin’s being interviewed by Katie Couric:

Palin just can’t quite seem to answer any questions directly.  And that’s when she knows the answer to the question.  When she doesn’t know the answer, or how to answer, it is excruciating to watch her squirm.  (Actually, I do get some sort of guilty pleasure out of it, but whatever).

Mrs. Palin:  Can you give us an example other than reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac of what other reforms John McCain has supported?  Any example.  Just one.  Just one example.  Anything.  Really, any example.  Just one example Mrs. Palin.  Anything really. No?  Nothing? Not one?  No answer? Not one example?

And the finally……paydirt!!!

“I”ll try to find ya’ some and bring ’em to ya'”, said Palin. (yes, that’s a direct quote)

There Katie, you finally got your answer.

You really need to see the whole interview to see what this woman is all about.

As for the press who is pissed of, and rightly so, that Palin is giving them the cold shoulder when it comes to interviews, I think I have an answer.

We deserve to know what her positions are, we deserve that Palin answer our questions. and we have already had a taste of how she “behaves” in interviews.  But if she want to hide from answering questions then I say, LET HER!  From here on out, ignore her.  Don’t try and talk to her, don’t try to track her down, call her or beg for interviews.  Just ignore her.

Someday soon she is going to need the print and electronic media and when she does, it will be too late.  Think about it.  If ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, newspapers, blogs, magazines, Fox news (yea, I know, but I thought I would throw it in) just ignore her then she’s got no platform at all.

Let her go on Rush Windbag, and Fox Noise all she wants and let her say whatever the hell she want to people who already worship her for no reason.  

There, problem solved.

  1. Ha! Good point. I just can’t believe how often they get away with it. Actually, I guess I don’t understand how they get away with it. Are we, as the American electorate, that stupid?
