Questions Sarah won't have to answer

Of course, she doesn't take questions--not a single one--and she doesn't speak without a script, but she's finally consented to a single interview. With Charlie Gibson, Barack's nemesis from the debates. So we know he'll softball her. But Miss Dowd has a list:
  • What kind of budget-cutter makes a show of getting rid of the state plane, then turns around and bills taxpayers for the travel of her husband and kids between Juneau and Wasilla and sticks the state with a per-diem tab to stay in her own home?

  • Why was Sarah for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against the Bridge to Nowhere, and why was she for earmarks before she was against them? And doesn’t all this make her just as big a flip-flopper as John Kerry?

  • What kind of fiscal conservative raises taxes and increases budgets in both her jobs — as mayor and as governor?

  • When the phone rings at 3 a.m., will she call the Wasilla Assembly of God congregation and ask them to pray on a response, as she asked them to pray for a natural gas pipeline?

  • Does she really think Adam, Eve, Satan and the dinosaurs mingled on the earth 5,000 years ago?

  • Why put out a press release about her teenage daughter’s pregnancy and then spend the next few days attacking the press for covering that press release?

  • As Troopergate unfolds here — an inquiry into whether Palin inappropriately fired the commissioner of public safety for refusing to fire her ex-brother-in-law — it raises this question: Who else is on her enemies list and what might she do with the F.B.I.?

  • Does she want a federal ban on trans fat in restaurants and a ban on abortion and Harry Potter? And which books exactly would have landed on the literature bonfire if she had had her way with that Wasilla librarian?

  • Just how is it that Fannie and Freddie have cost taxpayers money (since they haven’t yet)?

  • Does she talk in tongues or just eat caribou tongues?

  • What does she have against polar bears?

She's a puppet. My biggest fear is that McCain has become one too.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I hear the engines of obfuscation revving up. Deflection and misdirection at every turn.

Why HOW could people ask such questions of her? Hasn't the campaign given you enough in the press releases? And don't take that tone with her, she has a pregnant daughter and a son with Downs. But YOU can't talk about her personal life. That's off limits.

Don't know if you saw, but her campaign manager Rick Davis declared that she would only meet members of the press who showed her the correct level of "deference." Such is royalty.

That won't last long. At some point she will be wheeled out on the dog and pony show like everyone else. If nothing else to "clear up" the misconceptions.

I suppose so. But meanwhile the McCain/Palin campaign has achieved a masterful tilt in public perceptions such that anyone seen as "attacking" her is accused of attacking womanhood, motherhood, guns, apple pie, pregnant teenagers, and everything else we hold sacred. Teflon was never so durable as this.

Barbies For War!

"The Wall Street Journal reported that McCain was thinking about taking Palin to the U.N. General Assembly next week so she can shake hands with some heads of state. You can’t contract foreign policy experience like a rhinovirus. To paraphrase the sniffly Adelaide in “Guys and Dolls,” a poy-son could develop a cold war."

"R. D. Levno, a retired school principal, flew in from Fairbanks. “She’s a child, inexperienced and simplistic,” she said of Sarah. “It’s taking us back to junior high school. She’s one of the popular girls, but one of the mean girls. She is seductive, but she is invented.

This election will be decided on how many blacks or misguided women make it to the polls. At this point, both candidates make me physically ill with their snippy bullshit and dumb baseless rhetoric.
