Sarah Palin (aka “Ace Reporter Lois LAME”) has decided, after her CBS fiasco that she is the foremost authority on journalism.
And that the reason she did so poorly in answering the questions was because Couric “annoyed” her.
So how did she relate her displeasure with the CBS regarding the interview? Why, in an interview with FoxNews, of course!
Palin commented Friday on her widely-panned series of interviews with Katie Couric, telling Fox interviewer she did not think the CBS News anchor asked enough issue-based questions.
“I did feel there were a lot of things she was missing in terms of an opportunity to ask what a VP candidate stands for, what the values are that are represented in our ticket,” Palin said.
“I guess I have to apologize for being a bit annoyed, but that’s also an indication about being outside that Washington elite, outside that media elite also, and just wanting to talk to Americans without the filter and let them know what we stand for.”
It’s now Katie Couric and MSM’s fault/”elitism” that Sarah Palin came across repeatedly as an idiotic, lightweight dunderhead?
Sarah “chose” also to whine about how she was treated:
“Man, no matter what you say you are gonna get clobbered,” Palin told Fox about her heavily-scrutinized performance. “You choose to answer you are going to get clobbered on the answer. If you choose to pivot and try to go onto another subject that you believe Americans want to hear about, you get clobbered for that too.”
I especially liked how Carl Cameron gave Palin a chance for a few do-overs:
First- The Supreme Court decision gaffe:
Second- The “what newspapers do you read?” question (from the transcript):
CAMERON: OK. So, at the risk of annoying you, when you are asked, what do you read? Which papers and magazines? You didn’t answer it.
Or, you said, I have all kinds of resources.
PALIN: Right, right, right.
CAMERON: Well, what do you read?
PALIN: I read the same things that other people across the country read, including the “New York Times” and the “Wall Street Journal” and the “Economist” and some of these publications that we’ve recently even been interviewed through up there in Alaska.
Okay, who wants to call “MOOSEsh*t” first?
I suspect this interview is going to be interesting fodder this weekend- for one thing, Sarah disagreed with McCain’s decision to pull out of Michigan but wasn’t made aware of it until a day afterwards.
For another, she thinks Obama’s claims that Afghan citizens were being bombed and killed is “reckless” and should “disqualify” him from the election.
Then there’s the news per the McCain campaign that she is NOT going to be scheduled to hit any of the Sunday morning shows or do any other interviews.
So much for wanting to talk, eh?
