Shut Up, You're Just Digging Your Grave Deeper

From Human Events:
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.

So I guess she just doesn't remember all the stuff she said about the media "filtering" her if she were interviewed.

OTOH, it would have been a gas had she been interviewed more. As long as they kept her away from live animals while on camera. Who knows how many more would have been slaughtered in the background?
