Sarah Palin’s Interview with Katie Couric

If it hasn’t already been made clear, I really don’t like that this woman is a VP nominee.    Seems like my initial impressions may have been right, check out Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric.    Highlights include:

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: But can you give me any other concrete examples? Because I know you’ve said Barack Obama is a lot of talk and no action. Can you give me any other examples in his 26 years of John McCain truly taking a stand on this?

Palin: I can give you examples of things that John McCain has done, that has shown his foresight, his pragmatism, and his leadership abilities. And that is what America needs today.

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.

Um…so if she becomes POTUS someday and is meeting with the President of Pakistan again (I can’t believe we let her meet with the guy in the first place), and he asks her a question, is she just going to say, “I’ll have to get back to you on that one”?   Then again, she’d probably get away with it, the man said to her upon first meeting her, “You’re gorgeous, now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you.”   First off, the whole of America isn’t crazy about her, only the horny men.   Second, how completely innappropriate!   Do we want someone to lead our country to elicits this lack of respect from world leaders?

Anyhow, I haven’t yet read/watched the second half of the interview with Katie Couric.   I’m a little scared to, a smart woman would know when she’s in over her head.   This debate tonight between Obama and McCain had better happen, because I really don’t want to see the VP debate postponed.

And, once again, seriously, we let this woman meet with world leaders???

Until next time,

  1. I don’t like her either. It has become so apparent recently that she is just so “out there,” and really has no idea what she is getting herself into. She seemed almost clueless a few times during that interview. I was actually embarassed for her.
