Keep talking Sarah, you're helping the Democrats.

The spinmeisters will be working overtime in McCain-ville. Every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth more junk comes out. Here are a few excerpts from her interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson:
Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's assertion that she believes humans play a role in climate change — made in her first major interview since joining the Republican ticket — is at odds with her previous statements.
Palin said she didn't disagree with scientists that the problem can be attributed to "man's activities."
"Show me where I have ever said that there's absolute proof that nothing that man has ever conducted or engaged in has had any effect or no effect on climate change. I have not said that," Palin told ABC News in an interview broadcast Thursday and Friday.
OK, since you asked:
She has told
the Internet news site Newsmax, "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. ... I'm not one, though, who would attribute it to being man-made." That's one.
In an interview with a Fairbanks newspaper within the last year, Palin said: "I'm not an Al Gore, doom-and-gloom environmentalist blaming the changes in our climate on human activity." ABC cited the interview as being at odds with her statement.
Questions about Palin's knowledge of foreign policy dominated the interview with ABC's Charles Gibson. Palin repeated her earlier assertions that she's ready to be president if called upon, yet she sidestepped questions on whether she had the national security credentials needed to be commander in chief.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain has defended his running mate's qualifications, citing her command of the Alaska National Guard and Alaska's proximity to Russia.
Pressed about what insights into recent Russian actions she gained by living in Alaska, Palin told Gibson, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."
That statement is so ridiculous I find myself at a loss to comment. Discuss amongst yourselves. Russia? What year is this? Following that logic, if I can see Philadelphia from my back door that qualifies me to run the city.
Palin said that other than a trip to visit soldiers in Kuwait and Germany last year, her only other foreign travel was to Mexico and Canada.
Well, you have to go through Canada to get to the rest of the United States, so it figures that she would have been to Canada, and all you have to do is keep driving and you'll be in Mexico. I’m impressed. I’m also thinking my veal calf reference from the other day is entirely accurate.
I can see why the McCain campaign is anxious to keep Palin out of the spotlight.

every time i see her talk to "charlie" i cringe. she side steps all the questions. a very heated argument happened yesterday at work.

i work with a group of very strong minded catholics who are so in love with the idea of mccain/palin they can't see straight. of course i felt it was my duty to stir the pot and ask the die hard democrats what they thought of palin during the lunch hour.

it made my friday go faster...
