Sarah Palin Will Get Back to Katie Couric On Facts and Stuff

September 25, 2008

I almost feel bad for Sarah Palin in this clip. Defending McCain Campaign Manager Rick Davis — a man she most likely only met for the first time a couple weeks ago — and his well documented ties to morgage giants Fannie and Freddy Mac, she gets stumped on the facts by that sexist/elitist/secret Muslim Katie Couric. Oh, and Katie wasn’t done. Oh no. Trying to weasel her way out of a question about John McCain’s newfound status as Tha Regulator, Palin starts spewing some insignificant red-herring shit like “HUR DUR, JOHN MACKANE IS TEH MAVERICKS.” But Couric isn’t having it, cutting in with this delightful little exchange:

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.

Smell that? That’s the smell of leadership, baby. Like a said, I almost feel bad for Palin. But then I think about how her position on abortion would turn this country into Nicaragua and that we’d probably have to read about her batshit-insane Young Earth Theory in our public schools’ science textbooks, and then all the sudden I don’t feel that bad for her. All the sudden, I hope someone holds this ratfucker’s feet to the fire until after election day… and then a couple days more just for good measure. 

If I were the McCain camp, I’d keep Palin in a soundproof bubble and just roll her around from campaign stop to campaign stop so she doesn’t have to answer any questions but still gets too look pretty for the cameras.
