GIZZI: Who is your role model? PALIN: Susan B. Anthony. I have great respect there for the history. She was a pro-life feminist and those things that she stood for, and she was so far ahead of her time. It amazes me.Take a page from Ms. Antony's book & try to speak in complete sentences, w/ something resembling grammar. ("Pro-life feminist." Like abortion was a big deal then.)
Gov. Palin's big campaign regret? She didn't give enough interviews.
PALIN: The biggest mistake made was that I could have called more shots on this: the opportunities that were not seized to speak to more Americans via media. I was not allowed to do very many interviews, and the interviews that I did were not necessarily those I would have chosen. But I was so thankful to have the opportunity to run with John McCain that I was not going to argue with the strategy decisions that some of his people were making regarding the media contacts. But if I would have been in charge, I would have wanted to speak to more reporters because that’s how you get your message out to the electorate.Sorry, Sarah, but you should thank the non-existent gawd whose direction you claim to seek that those people had the good sense to keep you as far from any questions as they could. A couple more "Huh?" interviews & you would have been off the McCain campaign faster than Thomas Eagleton left McGovern.
We're a bit curious as to whether Gov. Palin has ever read a transcript of her interviews & other extemporaneous statements. And, if she has (can) read them, if she has any understanding of why they make her a national laughing-stock.
