Lawd, have mercy. I didn’t think anything could be worse than the first interview. It’s like Katie’s Mike Wallace here. I actually winced through the uncomfortably long Russia-Alaska-Canada connection. It was beyond absurd. Especially considering the part of “Russia” they are near is the most sparsely populated part — Siberia — home of the arctic tundra, a few prisons and oil pipelines.
She also made a strange reference to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that didin’t make a lick of sense. Then proceed to praise Henry Kissenger then claim Kissenger was not for talking with Iranian officials or President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without conditions only for Couric to correct in the bookend to her interview that Palin didn’t know what she was talking about. Again.
And now it is officially depressing and part of me feels some pity. Katie? Why did you have to be so cruel? Why did you have to ask questions? Why couldn’t you have been more like Sean Hannity and stack your interview with leading, loaded questions about how wrong everyone is and how right she and John McCain are? Why would you just set up the pins so her talking points could come knock them down? No. You had to open your mouth, say things then expect Sarah to say things back. Mean, Katie. Sooo mean.
