The woman has to learn to say, "I don't know." She makes just makes up $hit as she goes along. The voter is just suppose to put on higher boots and buy into it??

No one is out to get Palin. She was asked, example one, a question that was already asked of her in another interview. After the first fiasco why in heaven's name would she not have a better answer for the second interview?!?

Example 1

COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.
PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our-- our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia--

She has no idea what Kissinger's position is yet she feels free to make up $hit as she goes along. The smart answer would be to state her own views and not pretend to know someone else's.

Example 2

Palin: I've never heard Henry Kissinger say, "Yeah, I'll meet with these leaders without preconditions being met." Diplomacy is about doing a lot of background work first and shoring up allies and positions and figuring out what sanctions perhaps could be implemented if things weren't gonna go right. That's part of diplomacy.
Actually. That's exactly Henry Kissinger's position. And Couric even went ahead and confirmed it with Kissinger after the interview. Here is what Kissinger said just last week at a forum of five secretaries of state.
"I'm in favor of negotiating with Iran. And one -- (unintelligible) -- of negotiation is to put before Iran our vision of a Middle East -- of a stable Middle East and our notion of nuclear proliferation at a high enough level so that they have to study it."
It's not only Kissinger's position. It is James Baker and Colin Powell's position as well.

She wasn't blind sided with this question. Couric asked for Palin's view on the Wall Street buy out. Palin brought McCain into the conversation. Don't blame Couric for doing her job with a follow through question.

Example 3

COURIC: You've said, quote, "John McCain will reform the way Wall Street does business." Other than supporting stricter regulations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac two years ago, can you give us any more example of his leading the charge for more oversight?
PALIN: I think that the example that you just cited, with his warnings two years ago about Fannie and Freddie--that, that's paramount. That's more than a heck of a lot of other senators and representatives did for us.
COURIC: But he's been in Congress for 26 years. He's been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.
PALIN: He's also known as the maverick though. Taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he's been talking about--the need to reform government.
COURIC: I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?
PALIN: I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to you.


Couric wanted to know Palin's reaction to the fact that McCain's campaign manager was getting payments from Freddie Mac up until a few weeks ago.

Example 4

Sarah Palin: My understanding is that Rick Davis recused himself from the dealings of the firm. I don't know how long ago, a year or two ago that he's not benefiting from that. And you know, I was - I would hope that's not the case.
Katie Couric: But he still has a stake in the company so isn't that a conflict of interest?
Palin: Again, my understanding is that he recused himself from the dealings with Freddie and Fannie, any lobbying efforts on his part there. And I would hope that's the case because, as John McCain has been saying, and as I've on a much more local level been also rallying against is the undue influence of lobbyists in public policy decisions being made.

If must be very difficult for you, to see a strong, intelligent, accomplished woman doing the things you could only dream of doing. Some are leaders, some follow and hate those who are wise enough to be real leaders...
It's not Sarah's fault you are where you are...

Okay, it all makes sense now.

Wow.
Stupid can't be fixed... you see only what the demos tell you to see. You should man up and try thinking for yourself...

You have got to be delusional. Have you seen the Palin "interviews"? They were horrific. Trust me, no one is jealous of that bimbo...lol

No no, she forgot the question already. In fact, she forgot the interview already as her brain wasn't really there at the time, now was it?

Because she said she would. She could make it a fun and clever thing. But I guess the handlers are busy elsewhere, so I suppose we'll just be expected to forget about it.

Sounds as if you think quicker than Palin does.

Why? How is it Katie's fault that SP couldnt answer a very fundamental question? Katie asked her three times, gave her three chances to help herself. Sarah weaseled until she finally had to admit she didnt know something that should have been REALLY basic.

Palin is the one who brought McCain into the interview. Couric asked her what she thought of the buy out and Palin answers McCain will fix it. Couric wanted to know how he would fix it when he has always been against regulation. Palin opened that door herself much to the dismay of her handlers!!
