Sarah Palin Thinks Katie Couric Was Unfair

Apparently in an interview on Friday with Fox (I don't know if it was a real interview or another Hannity-style infomercial; I've just read about it on CNN), Gov. Palin expressed frustration with Katie Couric's choice of topics:
"I did feel there were a lot of things she was missing in terms of an opportunity to ask what a VP candidate stands for, what the values are that are represented in our ticket," Palin said. "I guess I have to apologize for being a bit annoyed, but that’s also an indication about being outside that Washington elite, outside that media elite also, and just wanting to talk to Americans without the filter and let them know what we stand for."

Let's see. Couric asked her about Supreme Court decisions that she disagreed with, her thoughts on the economic bailout, her foreign policy experience, Sen. McCain's legislative record on regulatory issues, her thoughts on abortion and birth control, and what periodicals she read to help form her worldview.

According to Gov. Palin:
"Man, no matter what you say you are gonna get clobbered," Palin told Fox about her heavily-scrutinized performance. "You choose to answer you are going to get clobbered on the answer. If you choose to pivot and try to go onto another subject that you believe Americans want to hear about, you get clobbered for that too."

She just doesn't get it, does she? She didn't get clobbered because of her answer; she got clobbered because she couldn't answer. She didn't get clobbered for trying to "pivot" and go to another subject; she got clobbered because she couldn't string together an intelligible sentence about much of anything. I've come to the conclusion that Gov. Palin simply doesn't understand how unqualified she really is; in fact, I suspect that she actually thinks that she is qualified.
