    For all to see. Form your own opinion.

    Personally, I think she came off as dumb as a box of shit.

    I think it's sad that she couldn't resist taking a swipe at Obama, though it's supposed to be a time for bipartisanship.

    "I'll try to find some and I'll bring em to ya." Hilarious. I guess "John McCain is a maverick" is the answer for every question she can't actually answer intelligently.

    I can't believe that someone like her is running for vice president.

    It's a disgrace.

    I'd wager that is what her handlers are telling her to do.

    *shakes my head* I am totally amazed at that performance. She was completely unprepared for that interview. In a moment when people are looking for decisive leadership from people, " I will get back to you" especially on a topic about the very person who is your running mate, comes across like your unprepared or even worse have not even taken the time to read about the person your running with. One way or the other, as I had said in another post to Crimson, in her first interview to me at least that came off as more of a condesending exercise and the second with Hannity was more a old friends type. However, she did not do much to give me or anyone I know a good sense of confidence in her abilities.

    You could almost hear every McCain campaign staffer's (and some posters here) palm hit their forehead simultaneously after that one ...

    I don't really know how you spin this one, other than it's some sort of campaign tactic to lower expectations for her debate. I can think of nothing else. I didn't slap my head, I just shook my head in the "you have to be kidding" sort of way. I will admit this interview was a complete trainwreck on her part.

    The reason McCain ditched Letterman for Katie Couric might be to do damage control on the Palin interview.

    Or.......it might be as my GF said, "McCain just likes women."
