Palin Can’t Be This Bad… Can She?

On the wake of news where she continues to defend foreign policy experience by saying she can see Russia from her state, we have this segment from the same interview where she can’t name a single newspaper or magazine that she regularly reads to stay informed about the news.

Sarah Palin really can’t be this big of a flop for the Republicans, can she?


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, I mean…

COURIC: Like what ones specifically? I’m curious that you…

PALIN: Um, all of ’em, any of ’em that um have been in front of me over all these years, um…

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news too. Alaska isn’t a foreign country where it’s kind of suggested it seems like, wow how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, DC may be thinking and doing, when you live up there in Alaska. Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.

Letterman Destroys McCain

John McCain canceled a scheduled appearance on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” just a few hours before he was supposed to go on and tape the show that was scheduled to appear Wednesday night. However, since McCain has “suspended” his campaign, he personally called Letterman to say that he was immediately flying back to Washington D.C. to work on the bill regarding the economic crisis.

During the show though, Letterman learns that McCain was, in fact just down the street being interviewed by Katie Couric. Dave even cut over to the live video of the interview, and said, “Hey Senator, can I give you a ride home?”

Earlier in the show, Dave kept saying, “You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves.” And he joked: “I think someone’s putting something in his metamucil.”

“He can’t run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sarah Palin. Where is she?”

“What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!”

The video is after the break: Continue reading “Letterman Destroys McCain”

Welcome To Hardball.

I was watching this on MSNBC yesterday and was certainly hoping someone would put up the video. Here it is from MyDD:

Damn, when Chris Matthews is pissed, it can be good television, and today he was actually visibly angry that the McCain campaign was trying to portray Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” comments as an attack on Sarah Palin. Repeatedly he asked Republicans “Do you think that Barack Obama was calling Sarah Palin a pig?”, which really is the pertinent question, and none of them could answer “yes.” In fact Matthews’ questions were met with much stammering. Here’s the first part of the interview:
