This is getting so weird that I'm getting suspicious.

The truth will be told Thursday at the debates. Can't wait.
As President, VP, or any high government official, it's important to receive and study information from a variety of news sources on the international, national, and even local levels. I'd like to know all 4 of these candidates answers on that question. If she's reading her hometown paper and nothing else, than she's not going to be reading much national and international news beyond that. If a VP doesn't know the ins and outs of at least every major current event, they have no business in the office.

It keeps getting worse
Palin, A Journalism Major, Can't Name A News Source She Reads

How lovely. It's nice to know that if my future hypothetical 15 year old daughter ends up being raped by her future hypothetical uncle, Palin would advise her to keep the baby. It's also fascinating to know that I chose to be straight. I wish I had a better recollection of the day a few years ago when I woke up and said, "I think I'd rather be attracted to men."

Q: What ones, specifically?

A: All of them.



Awesome.

Seriously, SNL doesn't even have to write skits about her. They can just copy her verbatim.

Why the question? Trying to figure out whether or not she has a clue. If she hasn’t got the experience, does she at least have the basic understanding and interest in the subject? Do you at least keep up to date? Do you at least have a history of trying to inform yourself? Do you even read the freakin’ newspaper? You wouldn't need to ask that of any of Obama/McCain/Biden, would you?

What newspaper? Trying to catch her out.

Why the persistance? Because she caught her out.

Why can’t she name any paper? I’m sure she could. Obviously she could. No-one is that stupid. She can probably name 30, 40, even if she’s never read a single one of them. It’s either a demonstration of her not being able to think quickly at all, or she’s really starting to freak out: “Okay, I don’t read newspapers, what do I say? Fuck! Do I just name a random paper or two? But then what if she asks me to name my favourite columnists from those papers? Or what if I accidently name a homo-supportive communist leftie paper?”

Wait, she's read every single newspaper currently in existence? Impressive. And, hey, quoting her verbatim certainly worked last Saturday night for SNL, so

I say she should have just name dropped the New York Times and Frank Rich to see if Rush's head would explode.

John McCain is playing a joke on us.









You're laughing, right?

I was wondering that too, but you gotta admit that "The Wall Street Journal, moron" or "Time Magazine, and why are you asking me this?" would have shut down these sort of questions very fast. Or "Brown v. Board of Education".

I wouldn't be surprised to see any future questioners keep hammering these sorts of remedial "can you name the three branches of government" type questions, simply because they're newsmaking in Palin's inability to clear a very low bar. And it's an easy way for the interviewers to become YouTube hits.

Why did CBS news just release this clip today if they had it last week? Why not release the entire interview at once instead of leaking it out in bits and pieces over several days or weeks?

Why did Fox News stagger Bill O'Reilly's interview with Obama over a series of days?

Sustained ratings.

Because, to release it all at once would be mass murder through laughing or crying (individual responses are different).

Were brand new segments being put on TV over a week after the interview happened?

ahh, yes, too much of that at once and too early, would not benefit some people.

Sting, do you think Sarah Palin was the right choice?

I said right away she was the wrong choice, but even I couldn't have imagined this horror show.

Strongbow, it is a second, completely separate interview isn't it? Couric asks her about the response to the initial one 'a week ago' during it.

Based strictly on her experience as a governor and having the highest approval rating, before being picked, of any politician in the country, yes. For the past 40 years, the winning ticket in every presidential election has always had at least one person that was a governor or former governor except in 1988. Having someone that is considered outside the beltway has been important to Americans for the past 40 years. So that tends to be an important winning element, which is why Obama nearly picked Tim Kaine.

The current "horrow show" is essentially based on a single interview. If you think you can sum up a person in just a few questions or statements, then I can list plenty of things that people like Al Gore have said that would raise just as many questions as Palin's CBS interview.

Regardless of whether one thinks the interview is a fair representation of her knowledge and ability or not, clearly the public perception that is being formed from the interview is a negative one. Its hard to tell how much of an impact it has had, if at all given that McCain's poll numbers did not really start to drop until the financial crises which started before the CBS interview.

I'm definitely concerned though because the last thing McCain needs is his VP nominee causing harm to the ticket. Overall, I can't fully answer the question at the moment. In about 48 hours were going to hear her debate Joe Biden for 90 minutes, just 39 days after she was called by McCain to come visit him in Arizona. I'm sure there will be more interviews and speeches. Its going to depend on how I think she helps or hurts McCain's chances of winning. Clearly, she was a huge boost to the ticket when she was picked, and there simply is not another nominee that could have done what she did for McCain, at least initially.

I don't know and I did not see a part yet where she asks about an interview with Couric specifically from a week before.
