here you go then, the first of several bizarrely edited, Charles Gibson-led interviews with GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin (second half of the clip is here). Mostly awkward, no? As she's essentially calling for war with Russia, unaware of what the "Bush doctrine" is, and is currently traipsing around Alaska calling for war against 9/11, it seems that maybe the New York Times' "In First Big Interview, Palin Says, 'I'm Ready'" headline is not so very trenchant. Maybe they couldn't get through the whole thing? Still, nation, worry not, because Palin knows what you need: "We've got to remember what the desire is in this nation at this time. It is for no more politics as usual and somebody's big fat résumé that maybe shows decades and decades in that Washington establishment, where, yes, they've had opportunities to meet heads of state." Mortifying. So much so that even Charles Gibson couldn't roll over for a belly rub in gratitude for being handed the interview. That is actual disgust on his face!
