Palin makes it easy.

I’m sure that, by now, everyone has seen Tina Fey’s masterful “reenactment” of the Palin/Couric interview from Saturday nights SNL. I simply MUST call it a reenactment due to the fact that much of it didn’t even have to be written. Most of the “verbage” (as Palin would call it) was lifted straight from Palin’s lips and delivered straight to Tina’s.

Here is a side by side comparison:


Meanwhile, the McCain camp is continuing their line of attack on the “biased liberal media” for daring to hold them accountable for anything that comes out of their mouths. They’ve now added the phrase “gotcha journalism” to their repertoire of campaign vocabulary; which seems to include any question that Palin does not know how to properly answer. How convenient.

So, let’s see if we have this straight… A young man asked her a question she didn’t fully understand because she was in a pizza place at the time? Let’s examine what she actually said, shall we?

“How about the Pakistan situation?,” asked Rovito, who said he was not a Palin supporter. “What’s your thoughts about that?”

“In Pakistan?,” she asked, looking surprised.

“What’s going on over there, like Waziristan?”

“It’s working with [Pakistani president] Zardari to make sure that we’re all working together to stop the guys from coming in over the border,” she told him. “And we’ll go from there.”

Rovito wasn’t finished. “Waziristan is blowing up!,” he said.

“Yeah it is,” Palin said, “and the economy there is blowing up too.”

“So we do cross border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan you think?,” Rovito asked.

“If that’s what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should, Palin responded, before moving on to greet other voters.

Where exactly does the breakdown in communication occur?? Is it that she hears words differently if she is otherwise engaged in… ya know, buying food? Is it even safe to say that, at the VERY least, she knew that they were talking about Afghanistan and Pakistan? Maybe it’s that she thought perhaps he meant in some fictional world where there is a place called Afghanistan and Pakistan and that he clearly didn’t mean THE Afghanistan and Pakistan?

Straight talk express, my eye.
