KATIE COURIC'S IN THE TANK  6:46 pm September 24, 2008

by Jim Newell

  • THIS IS EXTRAORDINARILY PAINFUL: All we’ll say is, Sarah Palin answered one of Katie Couric’s questions tonight with this line: “I’ll try to find you some [examples] and I’ll bring them to you.” UPDATE: Video! First and last parts are obviously the best:

Look forward to watching this.

Katherine_Owl September 24, 2008 at 6:50 pm

“I’m just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?”

I’ve never thought of Katie Couric as badass before, but damn.

SayItWithWookies September 24, 2008 at 6:51 pm

“Governor Palin, other than A, B, R, Q, thirteen and Blitzen, can you name the other letters in the alphabet?”

PoliTacky September 24, 2008 at 6:51 pm

I now have circus music playing in my head whenever I hear anything from McCain or Palin. Oh, and occasionally a sound that goes: BOING!

Oscar Folsom Cleveland September 24, 2008 at 6:51 pm

“The fundamentalists are strong,” barked McInsane, as he drove off in a tank. Reporters could barely see his tiny little snowy head in the diesel fumes and celebratory gunfire.

And the Question(s) (pick one):

1. Are there any factual statements in your entire resume?
2. Is there anything in McCain’s presidency that won’t be a complete bonfire fuckup?
3. Do you have one reason why I shouldn’t just strangle you right here?
4. Has the First Dude ever uttered a complete sentence?
5. Have you ever done anything other than be a cheesy whore?

This has been an extremely painful news cycle today. I’m going out canvassing for the O man in poor neighborhoods around Seattle in about an hour. It’s rainy and I’m totally not feeling this right now but I have my priorities straight and I’m not backing out.

If any person gives me static I’m gonna shove a clipboard up their ass.

Hell, even I (an avid Walnuts disliker) could have answered that question & I’m not even running for Veep. Now I know why Walnuts & gang want to delay the VP debates until Nov. 5. Jesus, she’s making women look bad!

Gopherit v2.0 September 24, 2008 at 6:54 pm

Walnuts and the Snowbilly will look back upon this day and say,”Yup, that’s when the libs really sabotaged us.”

I propose we wonketteers make an effort to add a new work to the vernacular. Henceforth, let anyone who transparently talks out their ass to comic effect to be a Palin. The next time Dubya talks about sovereignty, let us talk about how he totally palined that speech.

I wish there was a snarky, mean-spirited blog that would document the retarded things said by the candidates in the ongoing election in my own country.

McCain wants to hold the presidential debate at the time and place of the Veep debate, and to delay the Veep debate for “some other time.” Could they just be doing this to keep Palin out of the debates for as long as possible??

• McCain’s trying to keep Palin out of the debates entirely? Ouch!
• Some kind of lame “controlling the message” strategery trying to paint Obama as an “uncaring politician” unwilling to suspend the campaign for a “national emergency”? I’ve seen a few Rove-hired commenters hinting at it already on the interwebs. Dumb.
• Scrambling for extra time for him + Palin to cram for the test(s)? Weak.

I think someone should write a computer program that translates English to Palin.

English: The country desperately needs an economic stimulus package to increase consumer spending

Palin: We need to get money to the people in this time of ours with the need and people need money and John McCain is a maverick and blinking is bad because consumers that blink don’t need the government keeping them down with hope and lipstick.

If somebody said this to me on a job interview for an open position I had, I wouldn’t hire them. Oh, yeeeah… that’s right… THIS IS A JOB INTERVIEW. (buzzer) Thanks for playing, Palin.

I know he is a war hero and all, but he never flew on close support mission for me, no slicks, no napes, no nails, no guns, dropped no flares and provided no radio relay. Well I have had those experiences with Navy, Marine, and Air Force pilots, men who went out of their way to provide me and my men with support.

He even tried to drag McCain and Obama’s names into the fray. (I think he was hoping that his approval rating would go up simply by show people he knows who is running for president)

He tried to both scare the shit out of people and reassure them that all would be well, as long as they did what he said.

[re=107243] D’ [/re]: I make fun of Dubya to feel better. Playing clinician makes me feel better too, so thanks for the chance. His chronic pain and old wounds may explain the rigidity that you may see that physically resembles some folks with stroke. It’s not impossible he had a TIA (ministroke), but he hasn’t noticeably lost any obvious neurological function that I’ve seen. The suddenness of onset is likely how it’d be noticed. He could be in early states of dementia, like Reagan was when he was in the Whitehouse. Not being snarky, Reagan was showing signs and his staff talked about it while he was there. McCain’s temper, his gaffes could be early signs of dementia, (predementia) or again, the effect of the chronic pain. Chronic pain leads to physical shrinkage of the brain over time. Alzheimer’s isn’t easy to diagnose in the early stages. Currently no physical tests to rule it out (outside of autopsy). He may also have had very mild traumatic brain injury from being a POW (or just from getting punched by someone’s husband, or by one of his mistresses), that could also explain his rage and occasional “senior moment”.

snig September 24, 2008 at 10:00 pm

To answer your question, I’d guess not a stroke, or at least not even a mild one, as it’d be hard to hide a new cluster of physical symptom for long. Many stroke symptoms will resolve, but often not quickly. Stroke is sudden, so it’d likely be a deficit that was suddenly there, and I would guess it’d be hard for someone in the public eye to hide it.

Other likely ways he could be brainfucked though.

Steven Harper called the Canadian election early because his psychic told him the American economy was going to crash and Obama was going to win.

[re=107084]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: Damn! Was it two for one night for Katie or what?! And on another note, what the fuck is McGrumpy’s love of town hall meetings?! And on yet another note, does John McCain realize that if people actually took him seriously, he’d be scaring the piss out of people?!

Democratica September 25, 2008 at 12:46 am

I’m still catching up on my Katie interviews tonight… Bush is at 16% approval on the economy?! My GOD!!

Ooooh, Grampy’s gotta twitch in that one eye… he threw a couple of sleazy winks at Kate toward the end there. I feel dirty.

Democratica September 25, 2008 at 12:54 am

… and finally, this from someone over at Think Progress:

‘Rumor has it that, when the interview was finished, Katie turned to her crew and said: “Now that’s how you field-dress a moose.” ‘

NoWireHangers September 25, 2008 at 1:03 am

God, I just watched the video. This is FUCKING PAINFUL. AMERICA, WAKE THE FUCK UP! That first question is horribly awkward. She has no idea what’s going on. The awkward pauses. Her schtick is lying earnestly, but you can smell her fear. She makes Katie Couric look like Edward Murrow. And that last answer was basically, what you said was good, Katie; can I go home now? Fake it til you make it indeed, bitch. Also, I hate the way she says “Am-air-ica.” What a fucking joke.

I’m Australian and, unaccustomed as I am to Alaskan accents, I thought she said “ill” too. I thought it was Wasilla for “I feel bad about the position etc” which seemed clunky but fair enough in a faux empathetic kind of way.

I love her odd-but-technically-kind-of-correct choice of words, or should I say “verbiage”. “Recuse” got a good run this time round.

Did anyone else think Sarah’s aged 10 years in the past few weeks ??

Roschelle September 25, 2008 at 2:01 am

Gee….what happened to all the cute little word play she’s become so good at when campaigning with McCorpse….Oh…that’s right. She didn’t have a teleprompter.

This dirty twat did not say one fucking thing that made sense. NOT ONE. Jesus. And this race is still close. Buy your fucking canned foods and bottled water NOW people, do not delay.

that interview was so painful it felt like i was watching the daily show. what a stupid bitch.

Bigbruther September 25, 2008 at 3:16 am

The McTard camp is going to grant some major interviews and a press conference on election day and fucking stun us with such inane and obtuse horseshit that we’ll be so dumbstruck we’ll forget to vote, ensuring a landslide victory of like 538-0. All the while, we’re going to have to swallow a trillion gallons of Republitard bailout jizz to ensure that our economy limpdicks along for another six months, about which time those evil bitches are gonna make a run on hedge funds. At which point, McCancer will conveniently succumb to his cleverly engineered disease while the Chinese reveal themselves fucking Angela Landsbury style to be at the controls of the Palinbot, who will conveniently order that we nuke ourselves owing to the universally accepted truth that the US has become such a distraction and annoyance on the global stage that our existence is forfeit. Repugnanttards are SOOOOO transparent!

All Sarah needs is a couple dozen IQ points and she’ll be fine.

(I’m sorry to keep using Charlie instead of Katie. The way she says that name is burned into my brain.)

1. Are there any factual statements in your entire resume?
Factual in what respect, Charlie?

2. Is there anything in McCain’s presidency that won’t be a complete bonfire fuckup?
Charlie, you just haven’t had a mooseburger until you’ve had one of John’s smoking grill. And you won’t, since no one will be able to afford to fly to AZ ever again. Except by private plane.

3. Do you have one reason why I shouldn’t just strangle you right here?
Who told you about my love of erotic asphyxiation, Charlie?

4. Has the First Dude ever uttered a complete sentence?
Charlie, once he looked me dead in the eye and said, “Where did Trig come from?”

5. Have you ever done anything other than be a cheesy whore?
Charlie, whether or not I get paid to fuck Gouda is beside the point, Charlie.

wtf_files September 25, 2008 at 10:23 am

I just tuned in on this and I have to say that this makes me happier than anything has all week. Deep down I’ve had a sneaking fear that Palin would pull off an amazing Eliza Doolittle and be spouting prepared statements brilliantly one after another. She may indeed have much of the natural politician about her, but at bottom she’s nothing more than a pretty mouthpiece who can’t do better than repeat the same canned line about Rick Davis WORD FOR WORD when pressed lightly. I can’t fucking wait for the debates.

faketree78 September 25, 2008 at 11:02 am

I’m not sure how every single american doesn’t recognize what a complete trainwreck this woman is. Even on what appear to be set-up, softball questions, she baulks. To even consider that she is capable of being the president is to open the door to that persons clinical insanity.

More Dirt Please September 25, 2008 at 11:35 am

Takin’ shots. Takin’ shots. Makes me want one. Or five and half. As well a government grant to cure gerund disease.

JeffGoldblum September 25, 2008 at 12:22 pm

Holy shit, I just watched this for the first time. Did the McCain campaign actually forget that when you pick a VP the press is going to want do shitty things like ‘ask them questions’? This woman could very well be the most uninformed candidate for office….ever.

pat robertsons personal trainer September 25, 2008 at 12:34 pm

you really don’t have to be an attorney to follow up with, “do you understand that just because Rick Davis supposedly recused himself from directly dealing on behalf of Fannie and Freddie that he still has a conflict of interest because his firm is still working (for pay) on their behalf?”

pat robertsons personal trainer September 25, 2008 at 12:43 pm

“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because…ah some…people out there in our nation don’t have maps and…ah…I believe that eh-education such as in South Africa and the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe that they should….our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or-or should help south Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for our gen…”

BaxterJones September 25, 2008 at 3:46 pm

Please let Palin bust into the newsroom tonight with a sheaf of paper. “Katie! I got some for ya!”
