Well, she's photogenic enough that a real pro could make some headway. As it is, it's becoming ever more clear that she's in w-a-y over her head.

He most likely would have sent Bin Hidin a carbon credit bill for all of the toxic smoke.

Then had them send him a check.

The great thing about the Couric interview is that nobody can claim she was heavy handed. She did a proper interview by asking the questions and allowing Palin to sink or swim on her own. I really don't see how Palin supporters will be able to put a positive spin on this.

Having done extensive research on Palin this came as no surprise to me. In most interviews she has had the look of some searching for what her handler's have told her and it comes out forced.

You either have the ability to learn and assimilation what you have learned so that you can speak with an understanding or you simply regurgitate the lines in a meaningless manner.

Think about it, first she has a handle on foreign policy because she can see Russia from parts of Alaska and now when expounding upon it she can see Putin head when it rises over into Alaska. Doesn't she realize that there are satellites in space that give us the ability to monitor Russia's movements and that we don't need eyes in Alaska.

It's hard for me to believe that McCain had any extensive talks with Palin before choosing her. If he had then he would have known that she was out of her depth. On the other hand if he didn't interview her extensively than it was a political move and shows how much country first means. I wish McCain had made a better choice.

her interview with couric was as funny as the tina fey skit. Palin has no clue and her star is sinking fast..along with the ticket!..I see why they dont want any free-wheeling interviews.

Yes I did see the Couric interview. She was no worse than George Bush on an interview but people seem to like stupid when it comes on Bush he has a way of wearing it well and likes it.

If Curic seemed to you to be being fair and not pressing too hard for answers or specifics from Simple Sarah, recall the look of absolute wonder on Curic's face as she heard the answers Simple Sarah tried to give.

That look was part horror at realizing the chick could actually imagine the utterances she was spouting might have a damned thing to do with the question stated (or any other for that matter) and that the great slayer of moose imagined what she did get out was coherent, then probably more than that, that ANY rational human being could knowingly have proposed taking the chance of turning this Nation over to a pure bimbo, unable to recognize her pure bimbo genetic make-up.

Yeah, 'cause it fits and what others sort of terminology fits a trained beauty contestant that is still trying to answer the question at the end of the talent part of the contest, like she was doing with Curic.

Go ahead, without letting her know ahead of time what the question will be, ask her why some people can't find the U.S. A. on a map.

i know, but how about hitting on a real point,
like when asked about nation building?

she obviously became totally confused, esp/ when it was pointed out that Hamas won an election...

i don't think she knew what Hamas was or what election they won, that's why she dropped back to talking about the evil of Iran...

i mean she was pitifull and Katie was very nice to her..

Katie has been soft on everybody since becoming the anchor... can't blame her for trying to get herself stabilised in the job before she starts shredding people like she used to do.

Real point? As in specific? Was there some specific question she was more confused about than others?

I'm concerned with the horrid possibility that McCain might win. He won't be able to live out a 4 year term and we'd have Simple Sarah misreading and misunderstanding anything told to her, then providing misanswers to dire situations and believing they are even rational, all with that beauty contestant learned false smile.

yeah but just calling her a bimbo (whether she is or not) makes people dismiss the critique.. that's all i'm saying...

this is a job interview.. and until Americans stop seeing it as "my team" V "the other team" we are doomed. that's how we got into this mess..

on the teams? if you watch Fox "news" today? they are trying to make it look like McCain went to washington and saved the day...

which is a joke, but they don't care, are just about the team..

You are right. I know that as soon as I see a post on political message boards or ****s that is an attempt to degrade one of the candidates, I turn off. No matter what truth there maybe be in the post it kills the message.

It goes both ways and just entrenches the individual in whatever camp they maybe in. Calling people stupid or idiots for their belief's only makes them dig in deeper because now it's personal.

True debate of issues or qualifications of the candidates will only happen when opinions are backed up with facts to support the opinion.

I have to disagree.

McCain thinks, actually thinks, his trip to D.C. helped and he knows it got his name in the news for hours and hours (and best of all, alone, i.e., without Palin).

I doubt it, beedge. I imagine the big shoes in the party convinced him one way or another that he was getting in the way. True, they may have used "face-saving" language...but they convinced him to get his azz back on the campaign trail, back in the debate, instead of mucking things up with his rambling, which the finance boys do *not* want to hear.

Republican Concerns About Palin Grow
By Alexander Burns and David Paul Kuhn, Politico.com (Sept. 26) -

A growing number of Republicans are expressing concern about Sarah Palin’s uneven — and sometimes downright awkward — performances in her limited media appearances.
Conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, a former Palin supporter, says the vice presidential nominee should step aside. Kathryn Jean Lopez, writing for the conservative National Review, says “that’s not a crazy suggestion” and that “something’s gotta change.”

Tony Fabrizio, a GOP strategist, says Palin’s recent CBS appearance isn’t disqualifying but is certainly alarming. “You can’t continue to have interviews like that and not take on water.”
“I have not been blown away by the interviews from her, but at the same time, I haven’t come away from them thinking she doesn’t know s—t,” said Chris Lacivita, a GOP strategist. “But she ain’t Dick Cheney, nor Joe Biden and definitely not Hillary Clinton.”
There is no doubt that Palin retains a tremendous amount of support among rank-and-file Republicans. She draws huge crowds, continues to raise a lot of money for the McCain campaign, and state parties report she has sparked an uptick in the number of volunteers.
Asked about Palin's performance in the CBS interview, a McCain official briefing reporters on condition of anonymity said: "She did fine. She's a tremendous asset and a fantastic candidate."
But there is also no doubt many Republican insiders are worried she could blow next week’s debate, based on her unexpectedly weak and unsteady media appearances, and hurt the Republican ticket if she does.
Speaking this week with CBS’s Katie Couric, Palin seemed caught off-guard by a very predictable question about the status of McCain adviser Rick Davis’ relationship with mortgage lender Freddie Mac. Davis was accused by several news outlets of retaining ties — and profiting from — the companies despite his denials.

Where a more experienced politician might have been able to brush off Couric’s follow-up question, Palin seemed genuinely stumped, repeating the same answer twice and resorting to boilerplate language about the “undue influence of lobbyists.”
These missteps could be attributed to inadequate preparation and don’t necessarily reflect more deeply on Palin’s ability to perform as vice president. But when reporters have tried to probe Palin’s thinking on subjects such as foreign policy, she’s been similarly opaque.
In an interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson, Palin gave a muddled answer to a question about her opinion of the Bush Doctrine.
And given the chance to describe her foreign policy credentials more fully, Palin recited familiar talking points, telling Gibson that her experience with energy policy was sufficient preparation for dealing with national security issues.
In the same interview, Palin let Gibson lead her into saying it might be necessary to wage war on Russia — a suggestion that most candidates would have avoided making explicitly and that signaled her discomfort in discussing global affairs.
Then, asked this week by Couric to discuss her knowledge of foreign relations — in particular, her assertion that Alaska’s proximity to Russia gave her international experience — Palin tripped herself up explaining her interactions with Alaska’s neighbor to the west.
Palin has avoided taking clear stances. In a largely friendly interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, Palin spoke in tangled generalities in response to a question about a possible Wall Street bailout — and even preempted her campaign by coming out against it.
On Thursday, Palin finally took questions from her traveling press — but shut things down quickly after Politico’s Kenneth P. Vogel asked her whether she would support Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who has been indicted for corruption, and Rep. Don Young, who is under federal investigation, for reelection.
Unlike her other interviews, at least this time Palin had the option to walk away.

LOL...
here's some other quotes:

interview with ABC's Charles Gibson:

We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it's in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along.... It doesn't have to lead to war and it doesn't have to lead, as I said, to a Cold War, but economic sanctions, diplomatic pressure, again, counting on our allies to help us do that in this mission of keeping our eye on Russia and Putin and some of his desire to control and to control much more than smaller democratic countries.

at Ground Zero:

The mission is to take the fight over there, do not let them come over here and attempt again what they have accomplished here, and that was some destruction, terrible destruction on that day. But since Sept. 11, Americans uniting and rebuilding and committing to never letting that happen again.

So what's wrong with these quotes? Sounds like she's mastered the art of talking and not saying anything.....just like all the other candidates.
