Sarah Palin did an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (UPDATE: Whoops! Sorry, here's the link), and I challenge you to make it through the whole thing, or to make any sense of anything she says. An example:
Brody: Let me ask you a little bit about media scrutiny because some of the media networks...wonder why you don't go on some of the 24/7 cable networks. What is your response to that?
Palin: Well sometimes it just doesn't do any good. I mean you set yourself up just to continually be mocked, you know so sometimes that doesn't do any good, but what I have done in this campaign is in reaching out to the American voters through our rallies, through the one on ones, through the small meetings that we've had trying to get our message out, our plans for this country out there minus the filter of some of the filter of the mainstream media because, because that filter as, as we see every day when we turn on the news too often there is this, this opaqueness, there is this, this spin, this contortion of a person's words and intentions and that does more harm than good, so it's a greater challenge for me and for John McCain to try to get our message out there without that filter of I think some of the world's media. It's a greater challenge, but again, it does make us work harder and try to reach more people. That's why we're traveling around so hard and fast and aggressively across the US is to reach more people.
Talk about opaqueness! Never mind that she's lying, as she's done several interviews on that Fox 24/7 cable network, but... huh? What I'm getting is blah blah filter blah filter filter blah blah filter. She's like Jeff Gannon but even less eloquent.
And what awaits us this week? Will the Republicans be able to go even one day without major new racist embarrassments*? Unlikely in light of Powell's endorsement of Obama, I know. Will Palin have any rallies in cities with more than 500,000 residents (UPDATE: yes, Reno)? Will Cindy remain fabulous (yes). Will McCain turn into a comical zombie again?
*Nope. Maybe a better question at this point is whether or not the GOP can go one hour without major new racist embarrassments.
