Sarah Palin Can Not Tell Katie Couric What Newspapers She Reads. Be Afraid.
She could not name ONE newspaper that she reads. That tells you she does not read. Period. There's no spinning that. I read the NYT in print, it's our local paper where I live. I read the AP, Yahoo and CT feeds on my computer. I read Southern Living Magazine (shocked?) I read Highlights with my kids. When you hem and haw and avoid the answer it's because you DO NOT HAVE AN ANSWER.
Think Palin is just nervous? Bullcrap. Go watch me and my family on ABC last spring. You want to talk nervous? Try going onto a live taping with three kids with autism. But I answer every question with authority, because I am confident in my knowledge of autism and I knew the answers. There was nothing Cameron (forgot his last name or is that his first name?) could have asked me about autism that would have stumped me. Palin has yet to answer any question with authority. She reads a teleprompter well - and that's certainly an aquired skill. But meeting with world leaders does not come with a teleprompter. Nor does that 3am phone call.
Watch the video - I pulled it from http://www.dailykos.com/ .
COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —
COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.
PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.
COURIC: Can you name any of them?
PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.
Kind of reminds you of another gal who wore a pageant banner, doesn't it?
