Sarah Palin Talks Foreign Policy With Katie Couric

Posted on Sep 26, 2008

With a performance like this one now on tape and on YouTube, it is understandable (though inexcusable) that the McCain campaign has been so determined to keep Sarah Palin away from the media.

Speaking of which, why hasn’t one of these chosen ones asked the VP nominee how she feels about the cone of silence?

In case you missed it, the first installment of the Palin-Couric summit can be found here.

Sarah Palin being chosen for VP reminds me of the movie ‘Trading Places’ with Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy. Palin, of course being the Murphy character.

Somewhere there are two old rich geezers, who has bet one dollar to transform trash into possibly VP and president and are getting their kicks watching the American public make a choice.

“No, really Mrs Palin, this is all yours.”  “Yeah, all mine!” “If you steal that cigarette case, you are stealing from yourself.”  “Yeah, yeah, from myself.”

Thanks cyrena. smile As usual you gave me a good chuckle.

Actually I doubt Cheney, or even Bush had anything to do with this choice. I think McCain, ever the rebel and Maverick [in his own mind] did it all by himself. Just like he dropped like a bomb into the middle of the “bail-out” hearings.

I understand even Karl Rove is somewhat nonplussed by the McCain campaign. The man [McCain] is imploding. Victim of his own years of chest thumping and self-elevating. The guy really believes he’s indispensable!

Sarah, like most smiling limp brains was probably so taken aback by her selection she has immediately fallen into the same trap. Believing her own hype. And it doesn’t help that the first dude is probably coaching her.

The McCain-Pain ticket. Ooops! I mean the McCain-Palin ticket. wink

And yes I do feel a pang of empathy. I’m from that generation when women had to play the role to get the job. That generation when women could be denied access to the college courses they needed. Or forced to accept a lower salary, while doing her work and the work of the “patriarch” at the next desk ... or lose the job and go hungry. Or worst of all, get moved to the back office so the bimbo with boobs could sit at the front desk. And you had to do her work too!

Remember, Sarahs from Alaska. And I suspect on the edge of the tundra they’re still catching up with the turn of the century. One can only imagine her falling all over the great and good McCain when he asked her to be his running mate. And for an old man who lives more and more in the past of his glory days, that would seal the deal. No doubt he looks at her and sees his own reflection. The one he imagines. Young, strong and handsome.

She may be a witch. [Maybe someone will throw a bucket of water on her and she’ll melt!] She may be evil and rotten to the core. She may be as dangerous as Cheney. [Is such a thing possible?]

Or she may be just one more dumb woman being used by the “conservative” men in her life.

But no matter where this silly women ends up ... it should serve as a wake-up call to women everywhere. The “superior” male dragging women down to the level of smiling puppet, mindlessly repeating what the “superior” male has told her to ... enough already!

Does Sarah realize that while she’s watching Russia from her front porch those cheeky Canadians could be sneaking in her back door? How does she ever deal with the international tension?

We can thank our lucky stars that she’s there watching Putin fly over Mount Podunk on recon missions. Come to think of it, she’s so vital to us in Alaska let’s send her back there. Those f*ckin’ Ruskies might be gang bangin’ our moose right now, don’t-cha-know!

I dunno Louise…about the suggestion that McCain made a monumental blunder in attempting to ‘shield’ Palin from the American people. I guess we could call it that, but I call it (and his selection of her at all) one of the most cynical acts I’ve ever witnessed. This sounds like a Dick Cheney operation from start to now.

The selection of a dimwit nobody Stepford Wife, Alaskan Barbie Doll should tell the entire world what John McCain/Dick Cheney think of the rest of us. The hubris is absolutely toxic.

It’s is no more possible for me to feel any empathy for Sarah Palin than it would be to feel any empathy for a person playing con job by presenting themselves as a physician, and wanting to perform open heart surgery on me, and collect money for it. She’s an incredible FRAUD, just for claiming to be qualified for the job. No empathy or sympathy there. So for, she has NOT been ‘eaten alive’ but that’s exactly what SHOULD happen to anyone who would attempt to perpetrate such a crime against the people of the US.

McCain is only ‘sheltering’ her the same way that one criminal covers for another in a preplanned heist or other Coup.

Sarah Palin: One heckuva “valley girl” who didn’t even have a passport until about a year ago.  She finally had to expose herself to the press, and Couric took her apart.  Can you imagine her having to answer questions from Amy Goodman?: Governor, how can you say the surge worked when Sunni tribesman are being paid off by the US military not to shoot at our troops?  Don’t you think that’s kind of like an earmark?

Personally I found Sarah’s “interview” to be timely and right on.

Stop screaming and listen. Remember Britney? Time was when everyone thought she was just the cutest thing. Then someone asked her an intelligent question [I think it was Michael Moore] and that was the beginning of the end. Poor Britney.

So back to Sarah.

She just looks so darned cute. And she has that wide-eyed, smiling ability to babble incoherently and feel really pleased with her brilliant answer. And since she, and Britney so perfectly reflect the vacuous pleasantness real men [rumph, rumph] want in the women they pedastle, she’s just perfect, and timely, and right on.

Problem is, not all republican women are that dumb [even though their men want to believe they are] so, they will not vote for McCain simply to send that message to McCain and their menfolk!

Meanwhile, we need to extend a bit of sympathy to Sarah. Although she may not appreciate it just yet. The day she was introduced the first thing that popped into my head was, “they’ll eat her alive,poor girl.” I cringe whenever I have to hear her speak. Maybe I have to much empathy.

Someday ... someday, she’ll grow up a little more and look back and say, “Oh my gosh, I cant believe I said that!” Or maybe not. Maybe she’ll retire to the ridicule of the small-time small town, trying to forget she almost made it to the big-time, take up serious drinking and shave her head.

So sad.

I don’t like to watch someone getting eaten alive. But, inevitably when you go to the farthest reaches of the nether-lands and pull a sheltered novice from the drift, that’s what you get. Except in fairy tales.

McCain made a monumental blunder when he tried to shelter her from the press. That cocoon shattered her self-confidence. He’d have done better if she’d been immersed in some serious study. But then finding a tuter who exactly replicates McCains positions would be really, really tough ... since nobody really knows what McCains positions are.

Including McCain.

“You have got to be kidding, John McCain!  You really cannot think that this person, who cannot even complete one sentence without using the words and, ummm, and like, should be the vice-president, one step away from the highest office in the land.”



That’s the killer. He’s obviously NOT kidding. And, I’m not kidding when I say..that’s the KILLER!! That he even selected her -  AND THAT THE REPUGLICAN PARTY ALLOWED IT, her tells me that something is HORRIBLY, HORRIBLY, WRONG!! Or, as a former co-worker from Arkansas used to say, ‘somethin’s BAD wrong!

Seriously, what could Rove, Cheney, or any of them possibly be thinking on this? I’m not normally a ‘conspiracy theorist’, but this is just too damn obvious. For one thing, just one little whiff of Viagra on top of all the rest of the shit he takes, and McCain is a goner. “THEY” KNOW THIS.

No one can tell me that Darth and the rest of them lurking in the shadows have ANY intentions of allowing Palin or even McCain to take over ANYTHING, unless they already plan to be long gone. (which is possible, but not the entire Republican Party can possibly have these already made ‘getaway plans’.)

So, something’s up. I don’t know what, but this just can’t be happening, at least not unless it IS part of a larger conspiracy that we’ve so far not figured out. You say that we have a right to know more about anyone who might be a heartbeat away from being the president, but in this case, I think the ‘might’ is actually a GIVEN. Anybody voting on that ticket is voting for Palin to be the next president. And, they’ve kept here hidden, (in construction as a robot maybe?) for this long, just because they DON’T what American’s to find out more about her.

I mean, if you’re gonna pass a Stepford Wife/Manchurian Candidate off on the American public, the last thing they want is for us to have time to recognize her/him as such.

Now I never thought I’d say this, (which is why we should never say never) but I honestly never thought we could ever have a figure head president worse than the shrub. I mean, I just didn’t think anyone could be dumber, or more morally depraved. But Sarah Palin is actually dumber than the Shrub, and even more irresponsible. She’s just had a 5th child at age 44, (irresponsible to have a child at that age) and she’s just sent her eldest off to war. (possibly to escape jail time). 

Where I come from, we call that PWT mentality.

it seems a growing number of conservatives who were early Palin supporters are starting to turn on Palin and call her ‘out of her league”, based on recent interviews she has done with the media:

Palin should step down, conservative commentator says
Posted: 04:27 PM ET

From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

Palin was in New York City Thursday.

(CNN) – Prominent conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, an early supporter of Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin, said Friday recent interviews have shown the Alaska governor is “out of her league” and should leave the GOP presidential ticket for the good of the party.

The criticism in Parker’s Friday column is the latest in a recent string of negative assessments toward the McCain-Palin candidacy from prominent conservatives.

It was fun while it lasted,” Parker writes. “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.”

Palin’s interview with Couric drew criticism when the Alaska governor was unable to provide an example of when John McCain had pushed for more regulation of Wall Street during his Senate career. Palin also took heat for defending her foreign policy credentials by suggesting Russian leaders enter Alaska airspace when they come to America. Palin was also criticized last week for appearing not to know what the Bush Doctrine is during an interview with Charlie Gibson.

“If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself,” Parker also writes. “If Palin were a man, we’d all be guffawing, just as we do every time Joe Biden tickles the back of his throat with his toes. But because she’s a woman — and the first ever on a Republican presidential ticket — we are reluctant to say what is painfully true.”

Parker, who praised McCain’s “keen judgment” for picking Palin earlier this month and wrote the Alaska governor is a “perfect storm of God, Mom and apple pie,” now says Palin should step down from the ticket.

“Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves,” Parker writes. 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. Do it for your country.”

Parker’s comments follow those by prominent conservatives David Brooks, George Will, and David Frum who have all publicly questioned Palin’s readiness to be vice president.

“Sarah Palin has many virtues,” Brooks wrote in a recent column. “If you wanted someone to destroy a corrupt establishment, she’d be your woman. But the constructive act of governance is another matter. She has not been engaged in national issues, does not have a repertoire of historic patterns and, like President Bush, she seems to compensate for her lack of experience with brashness and excessive decisiveness”

It strikes me as fascinating that Gov. Palin couldn’t just say “no, I’m not ready” when McCain’s campaign asked her to join the GOP ticket. There would be no shame in sitting it out until next time (and meanwhile boning up on some national and international issues) - especially with her young children. What character flaw prevented her from gracefully declining?
It’s all kind of “Bushy” - forgive the non-adjective.

Nobody realizes the one plus a McCain-Palin administraiton would have: providing material for SNL, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.  Both of them are readily imitable and say and do the goofiest things.  On the other ticket the only way Joe Biden could make himself funny would be if, in the act of being verbose, he were to toss in a few Spiro Agnew gems like “those nattering nabobs of negativism…”

A.) Belabor: argue or elaborate (a subject) in excessive detail: belabor the obvious. B.) Point: an argument or idea put forward by a person in discussion: he made the point that economic regulation involves controls on pricing. Was Katie Couric making a point, or was she asking a question? Beyond the two pertinent and most recent examples of John McCain’s record as provided by Sarah Palin, was Katie eliciting information in excessive detail, belaboring a point, or just murdering the King’s English? Fact is, Ms. Couric really did want a list, and Ms. Palin offered to provide one. So, what’s the correct answer? You’re right Katie, John is an obvious fake, and I’m totally clueless. D’oh! Sorry for not coming-out with that straightaway.

** Junk-food faith for a fat-head nation **

• Palin’s political ideology is theology

Welcome to “Gilead.” Once part of America, it is a nation controlled by fundamentalists and their transnational corporate overlords. (Search: dominionism)

In The Handmaid"s Tale, Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood evokes a dystopia where women have been stripped of all rights. Gilead is Ameristan, christian Taliban included. (DVD:

• Ameristan - growing an ignorance base

The US is an aberration among developed nations in its affinity for xian enthusiasms and in its failure to accept basic truths like evolution. A plurality of Americans think that evolution does not take place. (

A nation overwhelmingly god-fearing also overwhelmingly rejects science. Millions lack a critical intelligence to evaluate the garbage they stuff into their brains.

Palin belongs to them. Her disinformed science—dinosaurs and humans walked together—and bloated ego reinforce each other. She is a throwback to the mental and moral world before Darwin, a characteristic of fundies.

• Poisoning society in end-of-days madness

Palin’s sexual ideology is pro-mass-death: creating disease, poverty, and ignorance by fostering overpopulation, damning safe non-reproductive sex, and blocking responsible medical research.

She espouses ideological madness. Dominionism is a toxic ersatz for public policy, domestic and foreign. Palin proudly displays that inverted elitism common among consumers of junk-food faith. (See 1Corinthians1:18-28 esp. 27-28)

It will be interesting to see how long Sarah Palin can keep up the pretense of having knowledge in the area of foreign policy.  It seems a bit of a strain on her already.  She talks all around a question, doesn’t seem to really understand it, but gets in the rhetoric: evil powers, Islamic terrorists who want to kill us, spreading democracy throughout the land, etc.  From my conservative friends I hear; she’s so pretty, and she’s so smart, and she’s every working woman.  And I guess she’s one out of three of those.  She took 7 (I believe) years and 5 small colleges to get a bachelor’s degree in communications…somehow that doesn’t translate as smart to me.

McCain’s Rovian campaign is betting on the American Idol public to give him a victory in November.  God I hope we don’t prove them correct.

You have got to be kidding, John McCain!  You really cannot think that this person, who cannot even complete one sentence without using the words and, ummm, and like, should be the vice-president, one step away from the highest office in the land.
Ms. Palin, is nowhere near the type of person who is even remotely qualified to be a running mate for the Republican Party. She has as many faults as you do, maybe even more considering her short time in office.
Can we all say, “Trooper-Gate?” Just as you Mr. McCain, have ties to the banking industry involving yourself in the Keating Five scandal. Are we truly to believe that Sarah Palin, is the best choice for a running mate that could be found? And if so, then I must conclude that the Grand Orgy Party, has fallen on extremely hard times and is now under the barrel, not even at the bottom of the barrel.
My vote will surely go to Sen. Barack Obama, for he is the person of change that this country needs, after 8 years of the shrub, Darth Vader and the Evil Emperor, we need someone in office that will be honest with the people of America, not hidden from view, like Sarah Palin.

What do you think? Is keeping Sarah Palin away from the media the right move for the campaign sake?

Make your own judgment based on getting as much information as there is available on Republican VP Candidate, Sarah Palin.
Here’s the best resource on the web:

research, audio clips, videos, excerpts, and links to hundreds of articles, including many from newspapers and TV stations in Alaska. It has rare footage you won’t find anywhere else, including her telling the ‘08 convention of the Alaskan Independence Party, whose aim is to give Alaska a vote on seceding from the U.S., to “keep up the good work.” The level of research is unparalleled.

The site’s editors and volunteers include an Emmy-award winning CNN reporter, the former operating editor of the Monitor’s web site, the former head of NPRs News Blog and the Executive Director of the Online News Association -

Americans have the right to know more about anyone who might be a heartbeat away from being president.
