im gonna be VP
Katie Couric is my new BFF, cause this interview of Palin is fire. Des Temps eschews cut+paste blogging, but could. not. resist. Below is the copy from the last :40. To be honest, I’m surprised the RNC powers let CBS air this.

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.

Oh yeah, you do that. And bring me some bars and hot cocoa too. Like ships passing in the night, I wonder if this interview will break Sarah and make Kate.

    Someone that hasn’t had to answer to anyone else for any reason will have a tough time with direct questions when they don’t like the answer.

    She’s highly contentious and comes across exactly how you think someone who feels like the smartest person in a town they never left would. Toss in her insecurities about how low-rent her town is compared to what she saw on tv and everyone else becomes the asshole.

    ed. note: Palin actually said, “I’ll bring them to ya.” [exclamation points omitted.] Any girl can tell the difference between “you” and “ya” in sincerity.
