Here's a shortened version of the Sarah Palin interview with Katie Couric, featuring the frightening highlights of a wafer thin awareness of the world, and a neo-conservative's wet dream date. You won't believe your eyes and ears.
Is this the October surprise?:
Nationally syndicated conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, after a scalding critique of Palin's readiness for high office, begs the Alaska governor to step down from the Republican ticket.
"Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first," Parker advises, pleading: "Do it for your country."
Parker says: No more. She has declared her cringe reflex exhausted.
"Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League," Parker writes.
"Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there's not much content there," she continues.
"When Couric pointed to polls showing that the financial crisis had boosted Obama's numbers, Palin blustered wordily: 'I'm not looking at poll numbers. What I think Americans at the end of the day are going to be able to go back and look at track records and see who's more apt to be talking about solutions and wishing for and hoping for solutions for some opportunity to change, and who's actually done it?'"
"If BS were currency," Parker concludes, "Palin could bail out Wall Street herself."-Washington Post
Radio talk show host Ed Schultz reports:
Capitol Hill sources are telling me that senior McCain people are more than concerned about Palin. The campaign has held a mock debate and a mock press conference; both are being described as "disastrous." One senior McCain aide was quoted as saying, "What are we going to do?" The McCain people want to move this first debate to some later, undetermined date, possibly never. People on the inside are saying the Alaska Governor is "clueless."
