Sarah Palin has a traveling press corp that goes with her everywhere she goes, but she's never taken questions from them since her acceptance as McCain's right-hand (wo)man. Never ever. But, today she was permitted to break the silence! Let's see what riveting, thought-provoking answers she came up with to the 4 questions HER press corp was allowed to ask...
CNN: On the topic of never letting this happen again [September 11 terrorist attacks in NY], do you agree with the way the Bush administration has handled the war on terrorism, is there anything you would do differently?
Very good question CNN Guy, let's see the governor's response...she's well-versed in foreign policy. Oh wait, damn, nevermind...that's Hillary. My bad. Honest mistake. You know, them having the same plumbing and I'm a moron that only wants a woman in the White House no matter their points of view or positions on the issues, it's easy to get them mixed up. Duh. I'm just a silly woman, don't pay me any mind.
PALIN: I agree with the Bush administration that we take the fight to them. We never again let them come onto our soil and try to destroy not only our democracy, but communities like the community of New York. Never again. So yes, I do agree with taking the fight to the terrorists and stopping them over there.
Huh? I'm sorry, did she answer the question? Let's read that again.... Hmmm, like 1/16 of it resembles an answer to a question, but not the one that was asked. Let's analyze. This is a two part question: Do you agree with the Bush Administration's handling of the war on terror? Potential answer: Yes or No. Ok, she said "Yes, I do agree with taking the fight to the terrorists and stopping them over there." Ok, Sarah, that's not what he asked you. Let's go over this again, I think your french twist is too tight. He asked you if you agreed with the Bush Administration's handling. So, you only agree with one aspect of Bush's handling, that they shouldn't be permitted to attack us again. Yeah, that's a good idea. Did you come up with that one on your own? Call the Pentagon, she's figured it out boys! But, you answered a question CNN Guy didn't ask. And, you're forgetting the second part of the question: Is there anything you would do differently? Care to take stab at it? Don't hurt yourself, I wouldn't want your big hair to burst into flames. No? Ok, let's move on...that was painful, I know.
POLITICO: Do you think our presence in Iraq and Afghanistan and our continued presence there is inflaming Islamic extremists?
Again, an excellent point, Politco Guy. No wonder these guys are political journalists following the Republican VP nominee around, to ask the tough questions! Ms. Palin, your thoughts? (*This is kind of a stupid and pointless question and we all know the answer to it, but let's see how she responds.*)
PALIN: I think our presence in Iraq and Afghanistan will lead to further security of our nation, again, because the mission is to take the fight over there. Do not let them come over here and attempt again what they accomplished here, and that was some destruction. Terrible destruction on that day. But since September 11, Americans uniting and rebuilding and committing to never letting that happen again.
Uh huh...ok. Uh....can you speak and understand English? Just curious. I think we're aware of your feelings regarding you not wanting the terrorists to come back over here. We get it, I don't want them back either. But, do you think our presence in Iraq/Afghanistan is inflaming the nutjobs over there? In other words, is it pissing them off? This is another good example of a Yes or No question. And, it's not a two-partner, so she should have had no problem answering it directly. You're batting a thousand Governor. Do the words "jihad" and "evil western devils" mean anything to you? I'm going to take a stab at this one for you, you look flustered. Uh hem...yes, I think our presence in Iraq/Afghanistan is inflaming Islamic extremists. PHEW! Lookie there, I answered a question and didn't spontaneously combust! Kick ass.
POLITICO: Do you support the reelection bids of embattled Alaska Republicans, Rep. Don Young and Sen. Ted Stevens?
Yeah, those two are screwed, both being charged with corruption, taking bribes and gifts from big oil companies, etc. So, let's see how Gov. Lipstick Bulldog answers this one. Remember, this is ALSO a Yes or No question....Governor?
PALIN: Ted Stevens trial started a couple days ago. We’ll see where that goes.
What the f*** does that mean? Ok, let's backtrack. At least one-half of this is an easy No. Simply because, as a matter of FACT, Gov. Palin actually endorsed Rep. Young's opponent, Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell in the Alaskan primary. So, perhaps.....no? Or, you're going to see how the trial plays out before you make a decision and then choose sides? I gotcha. Good move. Non-committal. Go with that, it seems be convincing the moronic masses you know what you're doing.
POLITICO: Are you gong to vote for them?
Yes, are you?
PALIN: [no answer]
JERSEY JOURNAL: What do you think of bailout package before Congress?
Loves it! Of course she does....pa~leeze!! Who doesn't, really? (*Yeah, I don't, but that's neither here nor there.*)
PALIN: I don't support that until the provisions that Sen. McCain has offered are implemented in Paulson's proposals.
Oh, wait...spoke too soon. So, what you're saying is you do not support the $700 BILLION bailout package for all the investment companies that sqaundered billions of dollars in bad investments at all unless your "boss" gets his perfect special way with its provisions? Who's your daddy, Sarah? Who's your daddy!?
