Transcipt of tonights Couric-Palin interview, omfg omfg omfg:
Edited on Wed Sep-24-08 06:18 PM by joshcryer
http://home.comcast.net/~duncanblack/couricpalin.htm

edit, second source: http://thepage.time.com/gov-palin-on-the-cbs-evening-ne... /

Some tidbits:

COURIC: But he's been in Congress for 26 years. He's been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.

PALIN: He's also known as the maverick though. Taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he's been talking about--the need to reform government.


COURIC: I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?

PALIN: I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to you.

Can't call her a pitbull it insults dogs
can't call her a stupid bitch it insults stupid bitches
can't call her Mentally Challenged for Obvious reason

I know what about Mentally Limited? No one has ever put those to words together???

The dangerous demon chasing "Third wave" dominionist "church" she believes in needs to get wide distribution.

and he didn't care. He just wanted to turn things around with the hillary chicks. this is horrible to watch. there is some small part of me that feels pain for stupid assinine people stuck in poo and not knowing what to do about it. This is going to be awful.

Edited on Wed Sep-24-08 06:54 PM by ailsagirl
people, she interviewed him and started to get pretty snotty. He cut her off by saying something like, "I'm tired of all this nonsense."

Also, I remember she interviewed Valerie Plame and was critical of her-- Couric actually likened Plame's outing with Plame's appearance in Vanity Fair. ( Huh???? )(as if being photographed for VF was just as serious as outing someone as a spy)

:wtf:

Couric has toughened up markedly since taking over CBS Evening News, and dropped the fluff and pompoms because of her ratings, but 'massive Democrat'? I've seen nothing to substantiate that statement.

She sounds a lot like boosh.

COURIC: If this doesnt pass, do you think theres a risk of another Great Depression?

PALIN: Unfortunately, that is the road that America may find itself on. Not necessarily this as its been proposed has to pass or were going to find ourselves in another Great Depression...

35. I don't think she evens listens to the questions-- if she hears key
words in the sentence, then she has the one certain response.

key word: voting record = he is a maverick

If they ask a question that has no key words, then a different canned response.

no key word: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine = In what respect? She has to keep asking questions until she gets one with a key word in it.

They in no way want her thinking about the question then answering it. She has been rehearsed so heavily she doesn't know which end it up!

48. Serioiusly? You would actually want her in charge of a grammar school lunch room?
Do you want the kids to starve? At best she's fit to be thawing sloppy joes in the back with a hairnet on.

46. Jesus, she cannot even form one coherent sentence.
"I have not" is about the best she can do. Everything is some seriously contorted E.S.L. level shit. Don't they speak English up there in Alaska?

50. When I saw Katie Couric was interviewing her, I smiled, Couric needs ratings....
And that means a hard hitting in your face interview. People don't tune in for a cream puff interview. They tune into nightly news when there it's worth watching.

54. The country is waiting with bated breath to see what McCain will do!! Bwahahaahaa
She is delusional!!


PALIN: ...in the last couple of days that I have seen is that Americans are waiting to see what John McCain will do on this proposal. They're not waiting to see what Barack Obama is going to do. Is he going to do this and see what way the political wind's blowing. They're waiting to see if John McCain will be able to see these amendments implemented in Paulson's proposal.

COURIC: Why do you say that? Why are they waiting for John McCain and not Barack Obama?

PALIN: He's got the track record of the leadership qualities and the pragmatism that's needed at a crisis time like this.

COURIC: But polls have shown that Senator Obama has actually gotten a boost as a result of this latest crisis with more people feeling that he can handle the situation better than John McCain?

PALIN: I'm not looking at poll numbers. What I think Americans at the end of the day are going to be able to go back and look at track records and see who's more apt to be talking about solutions and wishing for and hoping for solutions for some opportunity to change, and who's actually done it?

56. Embarrassing. Just embarrassing.
She's been on the ticket for 27 days and THAT's the best she can do?? Her cover would not be as bad if she hadn't used the word "try" in the last response.


:argh:


And, while some have mistakenly called him "a maverick" he's certainly not been referred to as "the" maverick.

98. A 'trophy wife'?
I'd like to see what kind of fucked-up godawful marriage you'd have to leave to be saddled with the likes of that complete babbling fool as a 'trophy'.

The first wife would have to have been Lizzy Borden.

'Stupid' would be a step up from 'homicidal maniac'.

with bated breath, waiting to see how John McCain will decide how to handle this economic crisis." Don't know what else to say to that. I just had to remind myself to breath. What an idiot.

123. Here's a Cliff Notes version of it:
COURIC: Do you even understand what happened during the Great Depression?

PALIN: Not really.

COURIC: Do you know what the word moratorium means?

PALIN: Blah, blah, blah, blah, more big words, blah, blah, no, not really.

COURIC: Why are Americans showing more trust in Obama after this crisis?

PALIN: I don't listen to anything but what I want to hear.

COURIC: Do you know what a consumer is, and predator means?

PALIN: Yes, a consumer buys stuff, and a predator is an Alaskan wolf. I've seen Russia, you know.

COURIC: Why would McCain claim to be pro-regulation when his record is that he has supported deregulation for decades?

PALIN: Huh?

COURIC: He has always sided with less regulation.

PALIN: But he's a maverick. Reform. Maverick. Reform.

COURIC: Ok, you stupid idiot, one last time, do you know what regulation means?

PALIN: Let me find out and get back to you.
