    Okay, even those of us who admire and like Sarah Palin have to admit that the media is often successful (and I think intentional) in goading her to stumble verbally, and have used that to effectively discredit her and bring up her unfavorables. I think the odds are good that this 'weakness' on her part will probably keep her out of the Oval Office.

    But after watching this interview, I think this young lady is brilliant, quick on her feet, secure in her grounding, and could go toe to toe with anybody:

    Amazing that the National Barack Channel even let her face go out over their transmitters!

    The only reason they would is because they thought Lauer could make her look bad or silly or a raving lunatic. NBC, CNBC, and MSNBC are all owned by General Electric who has put the affiliates under orders not to say anything really negative about the President or his policies. But that does not extend to guests that the hosts banter with.

    It's sort of like Fox being editorially more on the right, but many if not most of their invited guests are people that the hosts can banter with.

    All in all, I don't think Lauer succeeded in making Michelle look like a looney.

    Lauer succeeded in making himself look like a tool, which isn't difficult in the first place.

    After seeing the video of the interveiw with Lauer I'm surprised that there wasnt a "power failure " at the studio.

    You know, I think Michelle is probably sharp enough to demand a copy of the interveiw she gives. And if they had been stupid enough to edit her out of the day, she would simply have run it on her own website and thereby made NBC look much worse than they already do.

    And at this time I admit to being torn. I have long deplored 'attack' politics and the 'politics of personal destruction' and have favored each side stating principled arguments for its positions but in a reasoned, disciplined, and civil manner. And it seems to me that those who have followed my line of thinking have been consistently clobbered and ineffective in making inroads into better government.

    So.....now I'm rethinking and would appreciate some counsel here.

    Are rightwingers/conservatives/Republicans or whatever too nice? Too timid? Too reluctant to call a duck a duck as Michelle Malkin did in that interview? Do we need somebody like her to come right out and say flat out what we are all thinking? Could such a person be elected?

    Malkin is a retarded mouthpiece parroting extreme Republican (not conservative) viewpoints and she wouldn't know an original idea if it punched her in those buckteeth of hers. The only positive she brings to the table is that she sends liberals into absolute hysterics.

    No, we didn't have eight years of that.

    What we had was eight more years of Bubba with much more spending and a much lower IQ.
