Instead of letting Katie Couric's fall for grace speak for itself, Sarah Palin, still showing signs that she remains bitter about a 3-year-old question that a 5th grader could answer, felt the need to throw some childish jabs at The Perky One:
As Katie Couric gets set to leave CBS News after five years in the anchor chair, it doesn't appear as if Sarah Palin will be sending any flowers.Yes, Katie Couric was never a credible journalist to begin with. And yes, as yet another rich, liberal elite fronting as a "reporter", Couric most likely did come with an agenda when she interviewed Palin in 2008. But really how hard is it to answer somebody when they ask about what kind of stuff you read? I'm sorry, but I saw the interview and in no way did I see Couric try to trick or pull a fast one on Palin. Bottom line, there's no excuse for anybody over 7 years old, much less a potential vice-president, to not have the ability to answer that question. Palin screwed up and it's sad to see that all these years later she remains so bitter over it.
Appearing on Fox News Tuesday, Palin mocked the CBS newswoman who told People Magazine she is looking forward to a new position that will facilitate "multi-dimensional storytelling."
"Yeah, and I hear that she wants to now engage in more 'multi-dimensional story telling' versus I guess just the 'straight on, read into the, that teleprompter screen story telling,'" Palin said. "More power to her. I wish her well in her - 'multi-dimensional story telling.'"
Palin has repeatedly made clear she is still no fan of Couric, who's interview with Palin produced one of the most memorable political foibles of the 2008 presidential campaign.
In a series of interviews with Couric authorized by the McCain campaign, Palin stumbled over a number of questions, most memorably when asked, "When it comes to establishing your world view…what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read?"
Palin appeared unable to name a single publication – a performance for which she was much maligned – and later said she found the question insulting, as well as emblematic of a liberal slant in the mainstream media.
