Mrs. Palin, people are asking you what magazines and newspapers you read to see what informs your worldview and your cultural literacy, not to suggest that Alaska is out of touch. Nice attempt at a dodge, though! Except you're too clumsy and transparent for that to work.
Wow! You read most or all magazines and newspapers? That is impressive, ma'am. There are over 5,000 English periodicals published on a regular basis. Did you have help with that, or did you do it while juggling all your gubernatorial and familial duties, as well?
I love the part where Palin says "Alaska isn't a foreign country..." and Katie looks off to the side, because she knows Palin is again twisting and repurposing the question. Katie isn't saying Alaska is out of touch, Sarah, she's asking you what goddamned newspapers and magazines you read, and you can't even answer that question honestly.
P.S. If Katie Couric hands you your own ass on a platter, you would not be able to survive a meeting with Vladimir Putin. No, ma'am.
Oh, and just for fun: you learn something new about yourself every day -- I guess because I'm a liberal feminist I want "everyone to get abortions." Good to know where I stand on that!
And finally, the Sarah Palin interview answer generator. Almost as impressive as the real thing!
Q: How will you fix the economy?
A: The economy and putting it back on the side of the American people. And of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to change, and who's actually done it? That's something that John McCain and I have not and I have both been discussing whether that is what America needs today...
And one last thing. If you haven't already, take three minutes and REGISTER TO VOTE.
