Palin Interview - a Seven-Course Salad - The Mudflats
This is pretty funny. /

The Good Friday Surprise Guest on Eddie Burkes radio show was none other than the governor herself. Eddie Burke has the #1 rated talk show in the Anchorage area on KBYR 700AM, and is the one who called the women who attended the Alaska Women Reject Sarah Palin rally a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots and then gave out their names and home phone numbers on the air, resulting in threatening phone calls. Who could have imagined THAT would happen.

But here is a transcript of most of the interview he had with the governor on Friday. This part came after he pretended to be surprised it was her, and like he had no idea who this surprise guest was going to be. I give him a C- for that performance.

The Mutual Word Salad Admiration Society

SP: Im doing fine, and youre doing very fine with your ratings and everything else. Congratulations!

EB: Well, thank you so much Governor. Its an honor to hear from you. I really mean that, you know. Im a big fan of yours, and I justIm not just a fan, Ireally, I agree with what youre doing and its been a long time since Ive ever been this, um, I dont know, happy about an elected leader like yourself.

SP: I appreciate that very much. Well, lots going on in Juneau so I wanted to call and touch base. But I did want to kick off the conversation congratulating you, Eddie. Your work ethic, and just the way youre putting everything together on the show that so many Alaskans are appreciating, so congratulations on that, that appreciation being made manifest with your ratings.

EB: Well, thank you so much. It has been, its been pretty humble, and I you know I think the listeners out there as you know I know, you thank the voters in a way for our high ratings and being number one in the afternoon, so I appreciate that Governor for recognizing.

Who gets the Word Salad Award on this exchange? Sarahs the defending champion. Shes proven herself over and over but Burkes response, especially that last part was pretty impressive. I think the judges are going to have to give this one a tie.

<snip> - much more covering all the issues
