I’d like to stop blogging about Sarah Palin. Really. But every single day, I am faced with yet another display of stupidity — stupidity of monumental proportions — that I cannot help myself. Palin met again with Katie Couric, who has unwittingly become the downfall of the GOP ticket, without Daddy Mac by her side. Couric, who, according to conservatives, is a liberal media elite hell-bent on asking “Gotcha” questions, asked:
What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for [the VP nomination] to stay informed and to understand the world?
Palin’s response? Well, I’ll let you watch for yourself. Let the cringing begin:
So here are Palin’s responses:
1. Most of them.
2. All of them.
3. Any of them that have been in front of me.
Damn. I can’t even script a worse answer than that. Bitch can’t identify a single newspaper she read before Daddy Mac “vetted” her for the Vice-Presidency? If Katie Couric asked me that question, I would, without hesitation, tell her that I read the online versions of the San Francisco Chronicle, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the LA Times. And for good measure, I also read partisan publications such as Salon and Slate. And I do not believe I’m anywhere near qualified to be VP.
To be fair, that really was a “Gotcha” question. I mean, seriously. How can you expect someone to identify what newspapers he or she read a few months ago? It’s totally like asking someone what they ate for breakfast on September 3, 1998. Or asking someone what commercials aired during Super Bowl XXV. It’s just not fair. It’s a “Gotcha” question aimed at bringing down a candidate who is more than apt to lead this country. A real Joe Six Pack American.
Katie Couric — next time, be fair. Ask her what her favorite beer is. Ask her what type of weapon is best for shooting a moose in an aerial attack. Ask her for her preferred brand of snowmobile. Don’t ask her liberal elite questions like, “What newspapers do you read?” Katie Couric — you are a snobby bitch!
