Looks like she'll be on the entirety of the first hour, and then repeat in the third hour.

He'll re-run it at the top of the third hour.

She needs to do more of these and McLame needs to let her do her thing.

5 McCain can do the reach-arounds (I mean reach-acrosses -- whatever), and she can do the "solidifying" the base -- IYKWIMAITYD. It's a perfect tag-team. And they can leave Perky Katie the hell alone.

6 She was interviewed and now he is replaying it with Garrity (sp) commenting. It would have been nice if Hewitt had given a heads up. I usually listen to his show but didn't have it on because Medved, who precedes him, as a tape b/c of the holiday.

Can't do it. The ID tags give you away.

18 Anybody find it curious that she does not use any verbal pauses/delays at all when answering questions?  No "uhhs" or  "umms".  She just powers through without stopping to let here thoughts catch up.

Posted by: smapty at September 30, 2008 02:07 PM (6F7lQ)

19 smapty, you mean she sounds like a human being?

Posted by: XBradTC at September 30, 2008 02:14 PM (rvIYJ)

20 Booben, you kick ass like a Marine.  Thanks for staying on top of these astroturfing, multi-monikered chancre-wipes.

Posted by: Jazz at September 30, 2008 02:18 PM (hnq5i)

21 No...  She sounds a little "rambly".   It wouldn't hurt to slow things down and organize her thoughts a little better before giving an answer.  The Russia stuff probably could've been a decent answer if it was just rearranged and better phrased.

"The Breakthrough: Politics in the Age of Obama"

To be released January 20, 2009.

The author: Gwen Ifill, moderator of Thursday's debate.

Posted by: AmishDude at September 30, 2008 02:22 PM (T0NGe)

25 If she can be her real, relaxed self in the debate - as she was in the later parts with Hewitt, she'll be fine in debate.

But that's a big if. I don't know how anyone can deal with the amount of hate and the pressure beign put on her.

Sort of like Dubya-version hate and pressure...but she's only been on the scene a month.

Posted by: Thea at September 30, 2008 02:22 PM (N0hv7)

26 ...what if she guest hosted a talk-radio program during the next two weeks?  Could be interesting to hear her interviewing experts/guests for a couple hours.    Good idea?

Posted by: smapty at September 30, 2008 02:24 PM (6F7lQ)

27 Terrible idea smapty.  A radio show is hard for most people to do.  Mark Steyn was pretty poor when he was filling in for Rush the first time, even though he had plenty of broadcasting experience.  There's too much clock-watching and management.

My life has become immeasurably less stressful since I stopped reading Hot Air. It's hard to stay away what with all the constant updates, but ya gotta think about the ol' blood pressure. I can only handle so many "Just a reminder: Obama's going to win. Also, Galactus is coming to devour your homeworld" posts in one day.

I'll go back when/if Humping Robot makes a cameo.

The Russia stuff probably could've been a decent answer if it was just rearranged and better phrased.

Agreed. Her first interviews on a national level should have been with the friendlies, with a MSM one thrown in here or there.

No gotchas right out of the gate, and practice articulating answers on some of the subjects like foreign policy that she isn't as familiar with in a real situation.

Posted by: Lee at September 30, 2008 02:27 PM (TxTIh)

30 Did Hugh ask Sarah what she wears in the tanning bed? I need this for my blog my bunk    I mean, just curious.

Posted by: Jones CO/the next Dillinger at September 30, 2008 02:32 PM (KOkrW)

31 I like smapty's idea.

As for the demand of tough questions...  I'd just like to know what she thinks about things so that I can judge her judgment.    I'm less interested in knowing if she can pull facts about McCain's political career out of her butt or rattle off Supreme Court cases.    There isn't something morally superior involved in a hostile interview.    It doesn't increase our ability to learn anything useful.    It's not actually journalism.

Sure, we've got two months to learn about her... but where the heck are the "what is your favorite color" questions?    When do we get to "visit" with Sarah?    Other politicians *do* get these sorts of interviews.   

Posted by: Synova at September 30, 2008 02:33 PM (NxP4A)

32 She sounds genuine, real...I like her.  Quite the contrast to another candidate whose self-importance trumps any substance (Yes, Obama and Biden both fit this description).

Posted by: Richard Romano at September 30, 2008 02:35 PM (kycO9)

33 Jazz: Thanks. But all I really do is copy the ID tag and do a google search with it.

Posted by: Booben at September 30, 2008 02:35 PM (EbsDB)

34 Its RIDICULOUS that its been a month and all we have is three interviews from which to judge her.  The McCain campaign has put her in this bad position where every simple appearance has the stakes raised too high for comfort.

Posted by: smapty at September 30, 2008 02:36 PM (6F7lQ)

35 Hopefully, they are following a strategy I'd use: get the hostile interviews when she's most nervous out of the way immediately, then go to more friendly confines and less antagonistic areas for interviews. That way nobody can claim she's avoiding the press or won't face the hard questions (like Senator Obama does). If she looks weak and confused or nervous at the beginning she'll look and sound strong and confident at the end - and that's what people will remember. Sarah Palin is an overwhelmingly capable speaker and if they unleash that and her dynamic personality, she'll do a lot of good for the campaign.

Of course, if McCain wins we still have President McCain, which is to say it still sucks, but... maybe a little less than the alternative.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at September 30, 2008 02:37 PM (0+Ggj)

36 She'll be fine in the debate.  She is a good candidate.  The problem has been that most right leaning journos have been willing to help the rest of the MSM trash her to win cred with their colleagues.  The Repubs need a new media not a new VP.

Posted by: The Obvious at September 30, 2008 02:38 PM (1g+FW)

37

I liked this from the Hewitt interview:

HH: Now Governor, the Gibson and the Couric interview struck many as sort of pop quizzes designed to embarrass you as opposed to interviews. Do you share that opinion? 

SP: Well, I have a degree in journalism also, so it surprises me that so much has changed since I received my education in journalistic ethics all those years ago. But I’m not going to pick a fight with those who buy ink by the barrelful. I’m going to take those shots and those pop quizzes and just say that’s okay, those are good testing grounds. And they can continue on in that mode. That’s good. That makes somebody work even harder. It makes somebody be even clearer and more articulate in their positions. So really I don’t fight it. I invite it. 

"I invite it." That's the 'Cuda I've been waiting for. If this is her attitude for the debate, then she'll be fine.

Posted by: Lee at September 30, 2008 02:38 PM (TxTIh)

38 I've stopped listening to Hugh because he's playing identity politics now.

Since her nomination, he's been only taking calls from women. I can understand doing that for a couple of days, but for 4 weeks? Apparently only women have a stake in the Palin VP run. It's a little bizarre for a solid Republican to pander to women.

Or maybe it's just me.

Posted by: adamthemad at September 30, 2008 02:39 PM (kIjlp)

39 fiatboomer: You are absolutely correct. He tries to justify his crap by claiming its a different point of view. If you criticize his view, he gets angry. Every fucking article is either bashing her or passive aggressive enough to still denigrate her. I would like MM to go on record that she approves of her blog being used in this manner. If so, then fuck her, too.

Posted by: Booben at September 30, 2008 02:40 PM (EbsDB)

40 And until the Repubs cut themselves loose from the folk at the Standard and the NRO they will continue to have this problem with every rising star on their roster.

Posted by: The Obvious at September 30, 2008 02:40 PM (1g+FW)

41 Sadly unable to hear Hugh anymore in this market, his affiliate was bought by some investment sharpies (??wonder where they are now??) in Superliberal Palo Alto and they tanked-him to a 3:00AM darknight-neverland-UFOtinfoil slot.  He used to be on at 3:00PM in Drivetime.

Posted by: DirtCrashr at September 30, 2008 02:43 PM (VNM5w)

42 The McCain campaign has put her in this bad position where every simple appearance has the stakes raised too high for comfort. It's the msm's fault, not the campaign's. It is also the fault of the conservative pundit class who think they are superior to the conservative voters of this country and either criticize her unfairly or allow the most vile things to be said by their colleagues without any censure. They are all on my shit list forever. adamthemad: Disguise your voice!

Posted by: Booben at September 30, 2008 02:44 PM (EbsDB)

43 And yes Allah is as bad as the folk at the NRO.  He's a smart guy it's just that when it comes to the MSM he is craven.  Any thing they claim he will back to the hilt.  Keeping his popularity with them is more important than ever telling the truth.  He was the same way during the fighting in Basra, and the same way during the throw donw with the TNR, and the same way during the Jamil Hussein thng.  That's just one of the things you have to adjust for at Hot Air.  For a long time I've maintained that Repubs were  better off with him that without him...I'm neither here nor there on the subject now.

Posted by: The Obvious at September 30, 2008 02:45 PM (1g+FW)

44 And until the Repubs cut themselves loose from the folk at the Standard and the NRO they will continue to have this problem with every rising star on their roster. Will no one rid us of these meddlesome pseudo intellectual pundits?

Posted by: Booben at September 30, 2008 02:47 PM (EbsDB)

45 And frankly Allah isn't important enough to much care about.  Ed Morrisey does all the heavy lifting over there...and the best work.

Posted by: The Obvious at September 30, 2008 02:47 PM (1g+FW)

46 For a long time I've maintained that Repubs were better off with him that without him...I'm neither here nor there on the subject now. Better without him. I vaguely remember him posting about some internship he did at Time or Newsweek and being disappointed he didn't get hired or something.

Posted by: Booben at September 30, 2008 02:51 PM (EbsDB)

47 Booben,

Well, I'm not looking for the solution King Henry ended up with   But I do think the Republican brand would improve substantially with voters if they stopped contributing and listening to them.  Republican voters can be found in Wal Marts and churches and bowling alleys and soft ball fields...not on NRO cruises.

Posted by: The Obvious at September 30, 2008 02:51 PM (1g+FW)

48 Today, I was going to forgo the internet and the radio. The market crisis and the election is aging me. But, obviously, I was weak.

That makes somebody work even harder. It makes somebody be even clearer and more articulate in their positions. So really I don’t fight it. I invite it. "

50 Oh and anyone that watched Lou Dobbs tonight knows that once again Dobbs gave Sarah a Palin a fairer run than the NRO the Standard, Allah, Krauthamer or Will.  Lou Dobbs.  Republican journalists are just god awful.  The Repubs don't need the media to hamstring them they have thier very own journalists to ruin their chances..

Gwen Ifill has gotta know that there is a rising disbelif at the MSM reporting and is smart enough to be extra careful.

I hope so anyway.  Jim did a good job I thought at the debate.

I will have to go look up the VP format though.

Mr Biden, What is your favorite color? Brown

Mrs Palin?   Blue

<cold stare>

Mizzz Palin, You realize that Mr Biden's favorite color is Brown yet you said Blue. When did you become a racist in all white Alaska where the only black thing is a hockey puck and they smack that thing around? Where they kill Panda bears and Frosty the Snowman goes to die.



Mr. Biden, Describe your dream job.

Ah, I like Allah gloomy and all.  Understand why he pisses people of though in the heat of this election.

I loved his old photoshops.  He certainly has been fighting the good fight, as he sees it,  for a long time; so I am happy he is out there banging out thoughts.

Posted by: ArandomPerson at September 30, 2008 03:19 PM (2PwTK)

59

BTW, I often find Allah humorous. In fact, he's responsible for some of the funniest content ever posted on the Internet. I just can't handle the constant bombardment of pessimism (I can look at RCP myself and see bad polling trends without being told to stick my head in the oven). He's also consumed vast amounts of MSM kool-aid on Palin and I'm growing weary of it. Allah always tells people to leave if they disagree with him, so I left. He's a good guy though and he'll be normal again after the election no matter who wins.

Unless the Mets choke in the last game of the regular season again.

As for NRO, I've read NR for 15 years and really like a lot of their writers. I miss John O'Sullivan as editor and even WFB, who was all over the place with his views toward the end but still made some great observations. Some of the new folks rub me the wrong way (Parker is probably on some of the drugs that the magazine supports legalizing), but NR is comitted to defeating Obama as they were Kerry and every other lefty socialist jerk for decades. As long as you go in with the knowledge that they're all country club Republicans, you won't be disappointed. I spend way more time at AoSHQ, though. FWIW.

62 fiatboomer: You can't be committed to defeating Obama when you constantly bash Palin. It just doesn't work that way. Same with Allahpundit. And they know it. So, whether they admit or not, they want Obama to win. And for that, they can take turns sucking satan's barbed cock.

64 I, too, think that I'm going to take a pass on Hot Air for the rest of the election cycle.  It's been too demoralizing lately, and I blame Allah.  I do think he's clever, though, so maybe I'll go back there afterwards when there's less at stake.

On the other hand, if I get bored at work, I might end up back there anyway.  Why?  Shut up, that's why.  (I love that!)

65 Hey, Dirtcrash, you can still hear Hugh even if he's not being broadcast in your market.  He offers free commercial-free podcasts.  Just go to his blog for info.  I subscribe directly through iTunes.

For that matter, Dennis Prager offers podcasts, too, although now the free ones have the commercial breaks, which is disappointing (but fair).

67 OM, I should say that I thought that, of last time's moderators, Ifill was (a) the most objectively partisan outside of the debate and (b) the most fair in it.

With Obama, she's gone off the deep end and I can pretty much guarantee you that Biden will not be getting any pop quiz questions.

Posted by: AmishDude at September 30, 2008 04:44 PM (GlrN/)

68 I just caught the rest of Palin's discussion with Couric.  That was pretty damn good.  Relaxed.  Answering questions about her own beliefs. 

And they were good.  The reading question?  I would have directed Couric to the thirty investigators digging in her trash.

70 Here's a little piece of Palin talking about oil resources.  She explains simply that oil companies don't own the resources, the Alaskans' do.  Oil companies just have the lease.  "We are partners" in production.

This is the kind of stuff that Palin should be talking about...

72 Dear President Bush,

comments@whitehouse.gov

This is an open email being sent to you, and everyone else in the U.S.
government.

I guess our good Senators, and the rest of our ELECTED government
officials JUST DON'T GET THE MESSAGE - the one that was sent by the
House vote.

NO BAILOUT.
Not in any form.
Not under any circumstances.
Not by any name Whatsoever.
Not NOW, and not EVER!

Not just "NO", but "HELL NO!"

And certainly not until after Paulson, ex Wall-Street CEO, who has a 700
million dollar conflict of interest, and brings in AIG cronies to work
on bailing out AIG, steps down or is FIRED. HE IS TAINTED, right along
with all the other criminals that run the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you want any bill to pass, IF THIS IS TRULY SUCH A CRISIS, the first
step is to FIRE PAULSON, or have him to STEP DOWN. The next step would
be to put McCain and Palin on the stage, together, explaining why.
You, Paulson, Pelosi, Dodd, Frank, Reid and every other House Democrat
HAS LOST ALL CREDIBILITY OUT HERE ON MAIN STREET by attempting to shred
our Constitution.

WE THE PEOPLE do NOT support this bailout.

If John McCain votes to support either the Dodd amendment to HR 1424, or
HR 1424 itself I will not vote for him, and I will NEVER VOTE
Republican again.

Everyone needs to get this through their heads - 80% of the people in
the United States ACTIVELY OPPOSE this bill in ANY FORM. And, yes, we
are quite aware of the consequences, and prepared to pay the price to
avoid having our Constitution shredded. If ANYONE IN WASHINGTON
actually works for "We the People" people, they will oppose this
shredding of our Constitution.

Will you people in Washington get this through your heads:

NO BAILOUT - UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, or by ANY NAME. We completely
understand the consequences, and are willing to accept them to save this
country and our Constitution. And if you are really so interested in
destroying the Republican Party - keep making those 9:00 a.m. TV
appearances and trying to scare the market. You are making us ABSOLUTELY
FURIOUS. You are MANUFACTURING this crisis.

NO ONE OUT HERE TRUSTS EITHER YOU, PELOSI, DODD, FRANK, REID, or
PAULSON. You have ZERO credibility. If you want this bailout to pass,
you'd better get McCain and Palin together on TV, explaining why, after
FIRING Mr. Paulson - the Wall Street CEO with so much at stake, so many
irons in the fire, so desperate to "fix" this "crisis". WE DO NOT
BELIEVE YOU.

WE do not buy the "credit and liquidity" nonsense. WE can see that is
blatantly and patently FALSE.
We don't care that people "won't be able to buy new cars unless they
have good credit".
We don't care that people "won't be able to buy washers and driers
without good credit".
We don't care that "people won't be able to get student loans without
having good credit".
We DON'T BELIEVE that businesses will close down, only BAD ONES.
WE DON"T BELIEVE ANY OF THIS AND COULD NOT CARE LESS, EVEN IF THEY WERE
TRUE.

SOUND banks and credit Unions don't seem to have a problem lending money
to GOOD credit risks. The American Dollar is strong and is literally
crushing the Euro. The price of oil is dropping. And you appear to
want to FIX SOMETHING THAT IS NOT BROKEN, EXTINGUISH THE "FLAMES" BY
PUTTING ARSONISTS IN CHARGE OF PUTTING OUT THE FIRE.

Honestly, we don't care about ANY OTHER of the absurd and utterly
ridiculous explanations and cautions that have been put forth. You're
making this all sound like "Can I get me a huntin license, yuck, yuck."
LET ME REITERATE - YOU'RE MAKING US ALL COMPLETELY FURIOUS BY TALKING
DOWN TO US IN THIS FASHION. You need to let Freddie and Fannie go
bankrupt, and prosecute EVERY crooked politician that took EVER TOOK
money from them - which covers just about every Democrat there is,
doesn't it?

End of story. Period.

I am an American, Taxpaying, Republican voter

73 I agree that AllahPundit can be a bit of a downer sometimes...  but I also must point out that Morrisey is sooooo in the tank for the McCain campaign that sometimes it is embarrassing to read his posts - especially when he heaps praise on dumb McCain campaign ads.  I get the same kind of cringe-inducing feeling that I get watching Steve Carrell on The Office.  I don't like it because I feel it reduces his credibility on the other good articles he's done.

74 That interview with Hugh was something. She was so good, she sounded like Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin. I think if she keeps it up on Thursday, she'll win mightily against Windy Joe and thus push McCain kicking and screaming across the victory line.

I hate myself when I prognosticate like that -- and yet here I am about to click Post.

75 "she sounded like Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin"

Yeah, that's the funny thing.  Courtesy of the MSM, the viewing public has seen more of that hack doing Sarah impressions than of Sarah....even the stupid couric interview.

Just remember, everyone, Couric and Gibson were fair in their interviews /sarc

76 She did what she needed to do. And it worked.

Once we find out who the Bush advisors who were Palin's handlers on this are, I say we find them and beat the snot out of them.

77 I just want to know where the (fill in your favorite obscenity here) is the RNC in all this. Where the (fill in your favorite obscenity here)are the ads ripping the Dems? I mean, John Sanity ... er, Sean Hannity... had a statement from one of the Dems in that 1994 video saying "We (fill in your favorite obscenity here) up." Why the (fill in your favorite obscenity here) isn't that getting hammered on every (fill in your favorite obscenity here) station in the U.S. of A.?????
Yeah, I'm bleeped off.

78 It would have been helpful to do stuff like this a lot sooner, just to get statements like "I'm not a member of any church..." on the record before the corrupt media loaded up the brush with the scary-paint and started smearing.

One thing Palin does need to say at some point - "I'm going to be around for a long time.  At the rate things are going for them and their market capitalization, unless someone with deep pockets like Bloomberg throws them a line, by 2012 we may not have to worry about the New York Times anyway."

79 We ordered our copy of the guest economist's book,
THE FORGOTTEN MAN.
History belongs to the Democrat victors (FDR) who laid their own claims that at least three American generations have been indoctrinated to believe. Scholars are a rare breed who are not into research in order to promote a political agenda, but to reveal the records to stand on the records' merit.

80 ..what if she guest hosted a talk-radio program during the next two weeks?  Could be interesting to hear her interviewing experts/guests for a couple hours.    Good idea?

Posted by: smapty at September 30, 2008 07:24 PM (6F7lQ)

That's a good idea. She could moderate a segment per expert alongside the radio show host. The point would be to allow America to hear Palin converse with experts, to hear what questions Palin would raise, and how effectively Palin gets the answers from unwilling sources. Have the regular show's host alongside to maneuver the mechanics of timing breaks, etc., besides providing the audience with the host's own questions (the host has a loyal following who would so enjoy supporting Palin as well).

I liked Palin's demure critique of today's "journalists" lack of journalism ethics as taught when Palin earned her degree. So much lost in so little time "because they could" do as they like fabricating news instead of presenting the record to stand on its own merit. Palin has tact and suave style, the very things that Obama's cohorts claim are their beast's. And Couric hasn't a clue how to appreciate Palin's style, as being a total bitch is so much easier and self gratifying to Katie or The View or even Gwen Ifell with her "new light" shedding all over. Exactly which of the leading journalist women are beloved by Americans? Joan Lunden's been gone from the scene for a long while, and Diane Sawyer is a wuss of a tool. Everyone, regardless of gender, has bought into the idea to eschew at all costs "a woman's touch" as a sign of weakness. Yet that strength to perform without being obnoxiously cynical is exactly what endears a public female figure to her constituents. Palin is proving that gentility is not garnered "back East" by the elitists (wherever they be globally), but from the wilderness "out West".

81 I read (via Bill Kristol earlier this week) that McCain sent his top 2 people to go unleash Palin. He was unhappy with the way she was being handled...I have been paying attn, and we are slowly seeing the results...just in time for her to clean Joe's plow! Great read!

Palin is what Palin is, but it's kind of tiresome to read the broad, sweeping indictments of the old-school conservative media (You know, the institutions that were carrying the ball when there was no conservative movement). If they take a different point of view regarding her interviews than you do, that doesn't make them quislings. Quit being so damn doctrinaire. You're reminding me of the idiots who de-linked Instapundit because he wouldn't announce a fatwah on the ACLU.

We look for converts, not heretics, remember?

It doesn't make them very smart or helpful, either. And their support of distinctly non-conservative issues like amnesty doesn't exactly promote their conservatism for that matter. These guys might have outlived their usefulness, based on the last three years of activity.
