Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Nonsense is fun!

Did you see Sarah Palin on Katie Couric? Wow.

Let me post the relevant transcript. The question is about the bailout and why the $700 billion shouldn't just go to working class families:

That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the—it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

While you're scratching your head trying to figure that out, let me recommend a fun tool you can use. If you'd like to interview her yourself, you can click here and keep reloading to get new questions and new nonsense answers. It spits out totally random garbage, of course, but is it really any different from the above answer? I "asked" Governor Palin about the role of the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I got this response:
Iraq and Afghanistan will lead to further security of our best interests to fight against a regime, especially Iran, who would seek to wipe them off the face of the public trust. And that violation of the construction bonds and the 49th state, Alaska, and Russia. They are our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the oversight as people are trusting these companies with their investments, with their investments, with their life savings, with their investments, with their life savings, with their life savings, with their insurance policies, and construction bonds, and everything else. When we see right now in Washington and that was some destruction.


Update: Here's the SNL sketch parodying the interview that Bert mentions in the comments. The above response from Palin is used almost word for word in the parody.

That is good stuff. Have you seen the latest SNL Tina Fey parody of her Couric interview? I was watching it and I realized that Tina used Palin's exact words... literally unaltered... in the sketch. Astonishing (and hilarious... and frightening).

Here is a link to CNN discussing it: the link.
