A FOX News reporter blogs:
Palin responded to a question about the economic recovery plan, which was hashed out overnight. She answered, but she made it clear that she was then going to concentrate on the Blue Star Moms, “Bailout? Ok? Then I’m going to talk to these gals whose sons are also in the service. But, thankful that John McCain is able to have some of those provisions implemented in that Paulson proposal to have more sound oversight,” Palin said. “Taxpayers aren’t going to be assumed to be called upon to bail out so I’m glad that John McCain’s voice is heard and his leadership too.”
Directly after that answer, the press was escorted out for 15 minutes and then re-positioned to a staircase in the middle of Di Bruno Bros.—which was too far away to hear what the women were talking about or to ask the Vice-Presidential candidate any other questions.
I think it’s fair to say, when FOX is snarking on the Republican VP candidate, things are not going well for the Republicans. Hee hee.
When Palin was picked, the estimable David Silbey predicted that the responses to attacks on her would be “Noun, verb, woman.” And that was a pretty good prediction. But we didn’t realize we’d have to spot her the noun and verb.
