It's been a week

And the number of reporters who have been allowed to ask Sarah Palin questions about anything is:

Zero.

Comments (52)

Bojack and Oprah,

What happened to fair and balanced?

The selection of Sarah Palin by the GOP as VP is an insult to all women.
The voters need to know what her opinions are on all issues and to deny this is just wrong!
Double speak is here; read 1984 or watch Woody Allen's movie, 'Sleeper'.
Loved the Robin Williams clip too.

BTW read Gail Collins in the NYT today

Oprah

Why in the world is the McCain campaign trying to pick a fight with her? Talk about stupid.

At least McCain's campaign manager understands that it will be all over for the Republicans if Palin is allowed to speak off the cuff. Nice of him to acknowedge that, even if only by implication.

www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2008/09/sarah_palin_awol_from_sunday_c.html

"The selection of Sarah Palin by the GOP as VP is an insult to all women".

All?

How can anyone make such a ludicrous claim?
I suppose the entire mass of non liberal women who admire Palin are just stupid?

And by "all women" you meant all intelligent women?

Perfect. Keep that up.

Perhaps Palin should adopt the Kulongoski approach where he only answers questions from his friends and serrogates.

Perhaps Palin should adopt the Kulongoski approach where he only answers questions from his friends and serrogates [sic]."

Funny, I thought that was Bush's approach.

She's just returning the Repubican Party back to its Know Nothing Party roots.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_Nothing

Oh that's real.

And where have you Democrats been taking the Democratic party?

To where you think San Francisco and Portland are mainstream.


Palin brags on her daughter's for deciding to have her child, then quickly tells the media that no pressure was placed on Bristol to have the child. Pressure?? Did Bristol have a choice?
I love Sarah Palin; she's the living symbol of repub hypocrisy.

I really don't know where the Dems will take us, but I know where we have been the last eight years and looking back the sight is a garbage heap of monumental proportions. The Dems might do worse and then again the Earth might get hit by comet.

It never ceases to amaze me how the Left falls again and again into the old trap of underestimating politicians whom they don't understand. From Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher to George Bush and Mrs Palin, they do it every time. Because these characters talk a bit funny and have ridiculously antiquated views about faith, family and nation, because they haven't spent time bending the knee to the intellectual metropolitan elites, they can't be taken seriously.

"http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/gerard_baker/article4677799.ece

Palin's not going anywhere near the press because she can't defend the Republican policies of the last 8 years any better than McCain. If she could, they would have her meeting with reporters 24/7.

With unemployment up to 6.1 percent, Fannie & Freddie going into receivership, energy prices back on the rise, I'll take comfort with Peggy Noonan's observation on MSNBC: "It's over"

George W. Bush was born in Connecticut. He attended the exclusively preppy Annover Academy, where he was a cheerleader. Then he went to Yale. Now he likes to pretend he's a Texas cowboy.

Ronald Reagan was a Hollywood actor who pretended to be a cowboy in Hollywood movies. Then he learned to play a "regular guy" for politics.

And "dman" appears to be a major league sucker if he actually fell for the Grand Old party "regular guy" cons of Dubya and and Ronnie.

I wonder if McCain is going to be asked whether he still supports a gas tax holiday? It was a pretty obvious gimmick, yet he stuck with that position for quite a while. Now the Highway Trust Fund is almost broke. Another great example of McCain's powers of judgment.

Comparing Sarah Palin to Margaret Thatcher an insult to Margaret Thatcher.
Mrs. Thatcher was a graduate in chemistry from Oxford and trained as a barister.
Ms. Palin beleives the world was created in 6 days 5 thousand years ago.
Dame Thatcher would have eaten Ms. Palin for morning tea in one small bite.

I predict a Fox exclusive next week. Rove is busy constructing some scripted insults to be memorized. We've now heard her repeat the convention speech, but this time she had to read it from the podium. It takes time to come up with those snappy derisive one liners.

McCain's powers of judgment.

What, Sims? Where have you been? Don't you remember the Laffer curve? Lower taxes and public revenues go up. Taking that to its logical limit, a gas tax holiday would have meant infinite revenues for the HTF.

Karl Rove is not Palin's handler. It's Tucker Eskew, the man who helped Bush smear McCain in 2000 with the rumor that his adopted daughter Bridget was really his love child. At the time, McCain said that there was a special place in Hell reserved for Eskew. McCain obviously knew right away who to hire to teach Palin to be even more jugular and vicious than she is on her own. No surprise here: McCain is determined to win at any price, including swallowing his pride and forfeiting any shred of personal integrity he has left. Former officials of his 2000 campaign are stunned by the hiring of Eskew.

But isn't she sweet as she moves in for the kill?

Yes, though a bit schoolmarmy in appearance.

schoolmarmy

pit bully?

I imagine she'll address the press soon enough. But I wouldn't be too quick to address the "press" after their objective reporting this past week.

When do we get back to Sarah Palin's supposed lie about who the "real" mother of her Downs Syndrome baby is? Last week, here, we had 79 entries about this one single topic. Obviously, no apologizes are forthcoming.

Now we have one of Obama's original Finance Committee members, Howard Gutman, telling the world that Sarah was putting politics above her family and that Palin should not be involved in politics. Obama said that families of the candidates should be off limits and he would fire anyone who violated this rule. No action yet from Obama's camp. That's the value of the word of a "working man" like Obama.

When do we get back to Sarah Palin's supposed lie about who the "real" mother of her Downs Syndrome baby is?

There would be a really easy way to put that question to rest once and for all.

WOW you guys are really scared. This race is closer than I thought

"WOW you guys are really scared. This race is closer than I thought"

dems are scared sh*tless by Palin and thus they pile on...

the masses are realizing obama has no clothes...

The Palin family has clothes. They just don't know when to leave them on.

Palin's not going anywhere near the press because she can't defend the Republican policies of the last 8 years any better than McCain. If she could, they would have her meeting with reporters 24/7.

You actually think they will have questions about "policy"? We all know they are going to ask about babies. Policy is second in this National Enquirer-inspired freak show of a campaign.

I think this will be the first presidential campaign that really is a popularity contest. Certainly nobody is going on policy issues any more.

The Palin family has clothes. They just don't know when to leave them on.

You forgot [rimshot] after that.

We all know they are going to ask about babies.

I am sure the MSM will be respectful of Governor Palin, if she ever comes out of the bunker.

I am sure the MSM will be respectful of Governor Palin, if she ever comes out of the bunker.

That, my friends, is the definition of faith.

Jack,
So if Palin doesn't get a DNA test you were not wrong?
And how does she show you, et al, wrong about the "troopergate"?
Or most of your other attacks?


"I am sure the MSM will be respectful of Governor Palin, if she ever comes out of the bunker."

Ha! Just like with the baby thing?

Palin is not going anywhere near MSM because:

1. She wasn't fully vetted before she was chosen. The McCain campaign is scrambling to gussy up her personal and political pedigrees. Her personal life is in shambles and her supposed leadership abilities are in question and under formal investigation.

2. Many members of the press have exposed McCain's charade. If Palin is made available for interviews, the public will see it too. Unfortunately many people in the US no longer read or only read opinions which support the views they already hold.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/07/opinion/07rich.html?em


Hey folks:

Obama, Biden, McCain, and now Palin all travel on campaign planes and busses from time to time as they visit different venues. Members of the press are in the back of these planes and busses, so they are with these candidates everyday; sometimes there are cracks and candid reprts are made (recall the female reporters lusting after Obama a few months back in that YouTube video). They are afraid to ask hard questions in this venue, fearing they will lose access to this transport advantage.

On any given day, I don't see any of these reporters interacting with the candidates and the filing of daily reports of questions and answers as scribed by reporters - these venues are off the record. Recall those features in pubs like the NY Times, typically titled "campaign notebook" or something similar. It just doesn't happen much anymore - candidates no longer participate in this daily give-and-take. So the reporters are there with the candidates everyday - all fighting to get that one exclusive question asked and a response from the candidate.

Instead, we have preplanned appearances on the Sunday talk shows, with producers being warned by handlers what questions are "off limits". Until the ground rules are established, the campaigns hold back their candidates appearances.

As I view today's talk shows, both sides are haveing fun with speculating why Palin does or does not appear. What is missing is the obvious reason -- Palin must be prepped with the offical "party line" responses for the campaign. For someone who just a few short weeks ago dismissed any chance at being the VP choice, I would say that there is quite a lot of prep work underway.

I'll bet that dollar that Jack mentioned previously that she will appear within 2 weeks, and get in front of the reporters. And she will do fine. In the meantime, the talking heads should continue the attack - at least they will get the questions out ahead of time, so a response (and/or defense) can be prepared. If only the reporters can get agreement as to what the most pressing questions might be.

Mike

Busses? What about the lipstick?

Palin is not going anywhere near MSM because:

1. She wasn't fully vetted before she was chosen. The McCain campaign is scrambling to gussy up her personal and political pedigrees. Her personal life is in shambles and her supposed leadership abilities are in question and under formal investigation.

Why do I keep hearing this BS about she was not properly vetted? dman mentioned the left not understanding the right, this post is a perfect example. She was vetted properly and she is exactly who and what we as republicans wanted to see McCain chose.

she is exactly who and what we as republicans wanted to see

That is a big part of the scary part. The other part is that you all "know" this without anyone looking into the local papers, talking to folks in the many places where she went to school, doing FBI background checks, etc. What we do know about her religious and social beliefs and practices indicates low intelligence. As Frank Rich might have said (I forget who--if anybody--actually said it), there's about as much due diligence here as there was for the Iraq war. Small wonder that thoughtful people are frightened.

To keep yourself from sounding like the loony left, check your wild assumptions out with this handy list:

http://explorations.chasrmartin.com/2008/09/06/palin-rumors

There are some pundits saying the Palin nomination, in addition to arousing the wingnut base, also serves to distract Democrats from taking on McCain on all the issues that he's is vulnerable on.

I certainly hope the Obama camp can get over Palin and very soon start running an updated version of this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyVn9k6d1og

Step right up, gotcher fall-down Goov. Failin, rightcher, get 'er while she's hot:

Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”, by Charley James, September 5, 2008

“So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.
...
“Sambo beat the bitch” may be everyday language up in the bush. Whether it – and the outlook, politics and worldview Palin reflects when she says such things in public – should be part of a presidential campaign is another thing altogether. The comment says as much about McCain as it does about Palin, and it says a lot of things about Americans who overlook such statements (as well as her record) and vote anyway for McCain.


... sorta nails Kremer square between his two right eyes, wouldn'tcha say? Whatcha call yer bigot eyes.

Tesky that would be #65..

Yawn.... you can do better then this...!

http://explorations.chasrmartin.com/2008/09/06/palin-rumors

I don’t think it’s likely that she called Obama “Sambo”.

Conclusive proof.

The simple fact of the matter is that Palin is grossly unqualified.

Yes, she was the *best* pick for a party desperate to do something, anything, to energize the base and deflect any questions from the actual issues. Genius, in that regard.

But any Republican who really thinks she's a good choice to be VP is either lying, or simply, under any circumstances, wants the GOP to continue running the country.

And furthermore, cares nothing about the country--unless having a country run by fear, the religious right and/or major corporations with a permanent underclass is a place they'd like living in.

I'd have far more respect for a lot of modern day Republicans if they'd simply admit this fact instead of throwing up all the s*** they have about Obama and his potential presidency.

Or simply admit the fact that a black president scares them to death.

Oh, and maybe, just maybe, the MSM is growing some semblance of a spine.

Last night, after work, I was watching CNN and Rick Sanchez was talking to 2 talking heads about Palin. A lefty and a righty. When he questioned the woman on the right about her qualifications, she immediately started to cry "oh, it's sexism" and he countered, in a wonderfully mocking way (paraphrasing)

"Really, please explain why it's sexism--give me one instance on how the Obama camp has attacked her in a sexist way--how is asking about her record and qualifications sexist? They'd do the same if she were male.."


"Well, ummm, Gov. Palin is very qualified, and.."

"No, please, give me just one example.."

Then, interestingly---as she struggled..

"I'm sorry, my producer tells me we're having technical difficulties, we're going to have to stop there. Again, I'm told there are technical problems, sorry..."

The look on his face, and the tone, totally implied that he was being told to stop.

Very funny.

It's just starting--and maybe, there's hope yet..

What we do know about her religious and social beliefs and practices indicates low intelligence.

The day your bigotry and intolerance become the measure of anyone's intelligence has not quite come...

...except here.

CC, you should re-read my post. It's not my bigotry and intolerance (which I am happy, in this case, to acknowledge) that form the measure of her lack of intelligence; it is her superstition and groundless beliefs.

Here are some predictions about Charlie Gibson's upcoming interviews with Palin and commentaries.

"What To Expect From The Palin Interview"

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/09/08/politics/animal/main4424853.shtml

"Slow Slide Into Oblivion"

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/214508.php

I started to watch Gibson's interview with McCain but had to change the channel when McCain started bouncing up and down in his chair with excitement and talking about his plans for his administration, the way a four-year old talks about his upcoming birthday party. (Instead of "We're gonna have balloons and cake and ice cream and . . . ." it was "We're gonna have people from every party appointed and . . . .").

Don't tell me he's not into his second childhood.

Allan L,

That's quite the statement ... so someone doesn't agree with your religious beliefs and they are considered "low" intelligence? Well gee, what are you and Obama going to do to lift us all up and show us the way to the light?

CC, you should re-read my post.

Why? Would it be any less offensive?
