I will never, ever, ever talk to Katie Couric again! Dammit!

Don’t know if anyone here has seen this, but Sarah “The Fucking Idiot Who I Swore I’d Never Mention—But I Can’t Help Myself” Palin says if she runs for president, she’ll never—never!—speak with Katie Couric.

From Sarah: “As for doing an interview, though, with a reporter who already has such a bias against whatever it is that I would come out and say? Why waste my time? No. I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism [JEFFIE NOTE: At like, five different low-level colleges], who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.”

I love this. I mean, I loooooooove this. Sarah Palin, a paid member of Fox News, is going to teach the world about proper journalism. I also love how, when Stupid Sarah repeats something enough times, it becomes true. Couric was biased. Couric’s interview was insulting. Couric violated some journalistic ethic … because she asked Palin what newspapers she reads, and the dumbass couldn’t name one. One. I’m no Couric lover (she’s fine … whatever), but it’s not only a reasonable question—it’s a good one. What a person reads tells us a great deal about who he/she is. Where your opinions come from. What sources you trust. What level material do you turn to.

Sadly, the brainless dolts who robotically follow Palin will listen to her, nod, drool, agree. Media—bad. Couric questioning—stupid. Sarah—the best. Must vote for Sarah … muuuuuuuuusssst voooooooooote foooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrr Saaaaarrrrrrraaaaaahhhhh.

In 2010, the dumber you are, the higher you go.

  1. Of course she will only speak to reporters that will speak the truth….unbiased and honorable men and women that will report without prejudice…..people like Sean Hannity who she did this interview with.
    A man of the highest integrity who will always give a balance viewpoint from all sides.

    Why do I have a sudden urge to run around going “Woo hoo Woo hoo Woo hoo hoo hoo” like Daffy Duck? http://www.stuporduck.com/sounds/DS285.wav

  2. Haha, great blog, Jeff.

    Gotta admit: I’m really hoping that the dogmatic Tea Kettle base helps Palin clinch the GOP 2012 nomination in the primaries, ’cause I can’t think of a better scenario for securing a Barack Obama re-election landslide!

    Seriously, these idiot tea-baggers show up in droves in the primaries only to elect someone that swing voters will avoid like the plague. Though their ideas are scary and devoid of any intellectual value in civilized discourse, they are the best thing that could happen to the Democratic Party since the further right a certain voter is, the more they incorrectly prescribe that they stand for the ‘silent majority’.

    Ironically, since the GOP knows it has nothing but flawed candidates for 2012 to run against a relatively popular incumbent (at least for his numbers at this stage of his presidency), they may actually let Palin be the nominee much as the Dems let Kerry run in ’04; they know she most likely won’t win and at the very least, they can kill all the talk about her being a legit contender in the future for what a dangerous and divisive figure she is to party & ideological unity.

  3. My intense, blinding hatred of Sarah Palin has nothing to do with her policy and everything to do with her junior high-level fight-picking, particularly the lecturing about journalism.

    I hope a grown-up steps up for the GOP in 2012 so this sideshow can finally be put out to pasture.

  4. Here’s the thing, she does understand one thing about the American public: if you keep repeating the same talking points over and over and over and over again. Eventually most Americans will be swayed to believe anything.

    Obama’s a Muslim! Sure. Whatever you say.
    Katie Couric is biased and mean! Of course she is. That’s gotcha journalism.
    Leaving midway through my term as Governor of Alaska is patriotic. Damn right it is.

    The majority of Americans are dumb and Palin is just smart enough to understand that and manipulate them. And I think that she understands that she’s becoming a pariah in her own party — Barbara Bush, Cheney and Rove have all slammed her in the past few weeks as being a moron, so she’s going to “the people” to state her case.

    I have to say, it’s a decent strategy.

  5. @Henry be careful of what you wish for. Reagan in 80 was thought to be too extreme, Obama not enough experience. They won.

    That said, I felt the question was reasonable of what newspapers she read. Her experience was and is less than Obama’s. She also was a candidate that not much at the time was known about.

  6. The question about the newspapers isn’t what really doomed Palin in the Couric interview. She brings that up to rile up the New York Times hatin’ base she panders too. She also brings up to make people forget about how she responded to the Foreign Policy Experience question that REALLY doomed her.

  7. The thing is, the newspaper/magazine question was a total softball by Couric. It was while they were walking along together, doing one of those “60 Minutes”-style conversational strolls.

    I’ve always blamed the McCain people for that one. They had her so spooked about answering questions before that interview, that she was scared to answer what newspapers she read because she hadn’t been prepped for the question, and probably thought that getting specific could doom her.

  8. BRC, you blame the inability to answer an easy, softball question on being over-prepared and John McCain’s “people”?

    Sarah Palin’s PR person, everyone!

    “No, it wasn’t Sara’s fault! She knew all the answers to the tough questions. It was the easy questions that tripped her up!”

    Sure.

  9. Byron – I’m not even close to being a Sarah Palin apologist. She’s a dim bulb, and a bright bulb would’ve been able to think on her feet. But when you turn the presidential campaign into “My Fair Lady,” this is what you get.
