At one point, Hannity asked her a very specific question- something along the lines of "you talk about taking on your own party in Alaska- can you tell us who you took on?" Her response was the same canned "well sure, you've got to look at both parties. We need reform. We've got to shake things up, and sure we'll ruffle some feathers", with no actual answer to his question- and yet he sat there smiling and nodding his head as if she'd just explained the theory of relativity.

Talk about sheep..........

ETA: Here's the actual text of the question and the answer, cut from FoxNews' site:

HANNITY: There's this — you know, you still have a very high approval rating, but there are people that still weren't happy about it. How did you take on your own party, specifically? And do you think you'd be able to do that, as well, in Washington?

PALIN: Well, I just recognized that there — as John McCain talked about on the campaign trail, also — it doesn't matter which party it is that is just kind of creating the good-old-boy network and the cronyism and allowing obsessive partisanship to get in the way of just doing what's right for the people who are to be served. And I just recognized that it's not just the other party. Sometimes it's our own party that just starts taking advantage of the people.

And I felt compelled to do something about it, decided to run for office, got in there and with that mandate that I believe the people had just given me, via their vote, they expected the changes to take place, that reform. And we're living up to that. And as we do, we are ruffling feathers.

And where, exactly, is the answer to the question in bold????

Great post, Bob...yes, she never answers the questions. Doesn't this lady see how bad she looks? How skirting the issues with lame politicobabble is just insulting to us!
