    You'll have to wath the interview to hear what Obama said.

    This is an excellent interview of a sharp, tough and obviously intelligent woman.

    She clears up:

    1. The clothes
    2. Africa
    3. Going rogue

    I knew that Africa comment was bullshit. This is one case where I"m giving her the benefit of the doubt. I've always known that Fox News was lying about this, and that some McCain staffers were intentionally totally taking out of context what she said.

    I really doubt she was walking around half naked in a wet towell in front of McCain staff either. I don't even think hillbillys do that.

    Its hard to feel sorry for her, after she called half the nation anti-americans, and she called a democratic presidential candidate a "marxist".

    But, it kind of sucks that the Rovian republicans have stooped to smearing her with every appalling "stupid female" stereotype in the book. Its really f*cked up.

    Or you could save people the time of having to sift through all of that nonsense:

    VAN SUSTEREN: Have you ever talked to President-elect Obama?
    PALIN: Not yet. I look forward to it. He called when we were on the trail, I talked to him there. He was just saying good luck. That was great. He's was cool too, saying, "Good luck, but not that much luck."
    VAN SUSTEREN: Is that what he said?
    PALIN: He did. He was fun. That was right after I was announced. But I look forward to speaking with him, and I think that we will find common ground on the developments that are needed to allow us to become more independent.


    I'm sorry to complain here, but if this woman is so tough, why does she constantly need to clear the record about her clothes? It's not what people say about you that defines you as a good candidate, it's how you react to what people say about you. She's spending way too much time on frivilous issues. I think the national spotlight is too bright for this woman.

    One thing I will ask... where the hell is McCain? He was the one who made the final decision to pick Palin and he hasn't so much lifted a finger to defend her and to speak out against these accusations being made about her. When Joe the Plumber was talking about Obama being the death to Israel, when there were idiots and hate mongerers attending his rallies, where was John McCain?

    I question John McCain's honor. He hasn't so much lifted a finger to speak out against anything that everybody knows is wrong.

    And I'm not the only one here saying this:

    Where's John McCain's honor when we need it?

    I hope you're feeling better. That being said you bore me to death.

    I'm off to Boston for a couple days to meet with a fictious new client for my fictious business so the board is all yours. Looking forward to some yummie clam chowder at the No Name Restaurant :D

    That's not chutzpah, that's just his age showing. He's very immature.

    I read a lot of the transcript last night. I'll tell you what bothers me. And it isn't anything that proves anything, it just bothers me.

    Palin never said "I" in any of her responses. She said things like:

    "Didn't buy the clothes. Didn't step foot in Niemann Marcus. "

    It bugs me. I realize it might be nothing more than a mannerism, but dammit it sounds like she is wriggling.

    Second, she went to pains in the interview to actually name countries in Africa and NAFTA. It sounded rehearsed, forced, like bush saying the names of umpteen million foreign leaders at the 2004 debates after mangling them in 2000. It sounded like a college student asking for a regrade on a test.

    So, although in a sense she cleared up the issues, and I suspect they were blown out of proportion (WAY out), I still definitely do not think she is any way national material. She sounds very third tier to me.
