It’s America’s new favorite gameshow! Answer a question more articulately than a candidate who’s running for the 2nd highest position in the US government!
Okay, contestants, here’s the stumper:
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.
Well? How would you have answered it?
[Oy, I don't think Palin can top this "answer" -- but let's see how she does on Thursday night]
EDIT: Oh, but the hits just keep on coming. Palin was a journalism major (!!), and yet still did not name a single paper or magazine as one that she regularly reader. To say “all of them” is essentially to say “none of them.”
AND, the latest rumor on the Internets is that tomorrow’s Couric clip will feature Palin being asked to name ONE other Supreme Court decision, other than Roe v. Wade, that was influential in US history. Rumor has it that there is silence on Palin’s end. Seriously? Not one case she could name? I’m not even a politician, but I can think of at least 5 cases I learned about in 11th grade US History (thanks, Ms. Hearn!).
Oy. Bring on Thursday! (though I’m not sure I can cringe any more than I already have)
