And of course, the guy that won was more qualified......

Biden IS precious.....

Are we seriously going to put Palin's accomplishments up against Biden's?

I would agree with you if Couric hadn't let Biden's huge mistake pass. He said Roosevelt got on TV after Pearl Harbor to speak to the people. Couric blinked and knew Biden was an A$$ for saying TV was around then but she gave him a pass.

If you don't think the lamestream media isn't in the tank for Obama you have blinders on.

Conservatives4Palin.com: EXPLOSIVE: New Video of Couric Mocking Palin on the Day She was Named as McCain's Running Mate! (http://www.conservatives4palin.com/2010/08/explosive-new-video-of-couric-mocking.html - broken link)

Excerpts from article:
I didnt hear her laugh at moose burgers. She did say laugh as she was reading about "these weird names", but you have to remember this was so long ago she didnt even know how to pronounce "Wasilla." She only said something about the unusual names, that was all. She certainly didnt mock or burst out laughing.

I thought she was really restrained to tell you the truth. If you've never heard SP's story -- and there was once such a time -- and you're not from there, it's a really peculiar, Beverly Hillbillies seeming story. Sorry but it is.

She was reading this script for the first time and only commented -- not harshly -- about "these names" and that was all.

I watched the whole thing, waiting to hear this grossly offensive fun-making. . .

I must have missed it, because, looking up briefly and wondering aloud where one gets names like Track and Trig with a bit of a giggle is hardly worthy of a gasp, let alone the major flap you people are trying to turn it into.

They are odd names, and anyone who's honest will admit that.

I confess. I laughed at the names the first time I heard them too. And I didn't even think she was a total idiot yet. That would come later.

Me too.

It really annoys me that so many people wont listen, but will remember and of course believe the video titles.

I still can't believe that Couric actually asked Sarah Palin what newspapers she read.

The absolute NERVE of some newshounds, making fun of the interviewees like that...
