Charlie Gibson of ABC News went to Alaska to interview Sarah Palin this week. (I still don’t understand why ABC News had to move their entire operation to Alaska. Wouldn’t it have been easier for her to go to them? They, after all, have more equipment than she has lipstick.) (I can say that because I’m not running for anything and have no intention of doing so at any time in the future, no matter how much you beg.)

Anyway…

The right wing is all up in arms because Charlie had the audacity to ask her some “tough” questions. They are saying he only did so because she is a woman and he is a sexist. It was alright when Hillary Clinton got asked the hard questions, but Sarah Palin? Come on, Charlie. You can’t be asking Sarah Palin the hard stuff! After all, she’s only running to be one 72-year-old heartbeat (and not a terribly healthy one at that) removed from the presidency of the United States for gods sake. Get real, Charlie!

Talk about a deer in the headlights. The McCain people clearly have a lot more work to do here before they turn this lady loose in public. She clearly is not ready. Perhaps in another twelve years or so, but not now. Let her run for Congress and spend a little time learning and gaining a bit of national and international experience. She just got her first passport a year ago. Give the lady some time.

(Oops, I forgot. The lady lives right next door to Russia. My bad.)

Putting her on the ticket was clearly an impulsive decision on John McCain’s part. He is infatuated with Hillary Clinton. He obviously cannot have Hillary so he went looking for a substitute. He failed in his quest. Miserably.

Update: Guess who is interviewing Mrs. Palin next week? Sean Hannity! Wow. She’s really being raked over the coals, isn’t she?

Did you happen to catch The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night? If not, here is what you missed. (Two parts… before and after the commercial break.)

I was just starting to doze off when he started, but I was soon wide awake. At first I was all “What is he doing?” but after he got into it a bit I really started enjoying it. This man from Scotland, a newly minted United States citizen, gave us the talking to that a lot of us really needed. I hope Rick “This Campaign Is About Personalities” Davis was listening.

Bush marks Sept. 11 with moment of silence

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush said Thursday that history will look back at America’s response to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and conclude that “we did not tire, we did not falter and we did not fail.”

We went shopping.

We spent a trillion dollars and thousands of lives invading a country that had nothing to with the terror attacks. We have allowed the people who attacked us to regroup and establish a base in the mountains of Pakistan and Afghanistan from which they are plotting new attacks against us.

We still haven’t caught the guy responsible.

We have an old man running for president who wants to continue the same policies.

Yep, we’ve come a long way since that awful, awful day.

Please take a moment to remember in a manner which you deem fitting.
