I watched the first part of Sarah Palin's ABC Interview with Charles Gibson last night and I couldn't believe my ears. This interview was held on 9/11, a day when both candidates agreed to a cease fire as they remembered the terrorist attack on America. I guess Charles Gibson didn't get the truce memo because he was firing away at Sarah Palin like she was the first duck at hunting season. Gibson's agenda was evident to anyone who wasn't watching with their blinders on. He was trying to get her to say something stupid like, "I'm not ready to be VP" or "let's blow up Iran," anything that a politician in their right mind knows they shouldn't say. He repeated his questions 3 times waiting for the "New York Times" headline answer he never got. "Are you ready to be the VP?" "Are you...ready to be the VP?" "How bout' now?" "It's a dangerous world out there, are you ready to be the VP?" At that point I wish I could've reached inside my TV to give him the b!tch slap he deserved. What the hell does he mean, "its a dangerous world out there??" I guarantee that if Barack Obama or any other man would've been sitting across from Gibson, he wouldn't dare to make that "its a dangerous world out there" comment.
Once he realized he couldn't get her there, he decided to change the topic to foreign affairs. He asked her if a nuclear Iran posed an existential threat to Israel, and Israel decided to take out Iran's nuclear facility, how should the US react? When she told him that Israel is our friend and we can't second guess their decisions, he repeated the question another two times waiting for the headline answer again. WAKE UP GIBSON!!! She's not stupid!!! I mean seriously...come on...if any country posed an existential threat to our country, existential like threatening our existence, I guarantee we'd be blowing the heck out of their nuclear plant too!!! Then he segues into, "well why do you think we were attacked on 9/11?" We can all argue about what really constitutes an existential threat, and that's valid, but we shouldn't attack terrorists want to kill us?? Should we have tea and crumpets with them instead? GIbson, you're the one who said its a dangerous world out there!!
Sarah Palin handled herself with class. I only wish that there were some other hockey moms sitting in the stand because Gibson deserves a puck to the face!
