Sarah Palin Slaughtered November 21, 2008 9:20 am

Russ made my eyes water with this homage to the WKRP Thanksgiving Turkey Drop. I don’t think Saturday Night Live could have written this interview with Sarah Palin and her other brother Daryl in the background any better. Her closing line nailed it. Just what was the cameraman thinking?

While it’s pretty embarrassing for her, most commentary I’ve seen on this was along the lines of “what was the cameraman thinking???” That said, why do I get the feeling it’s still being held up as an example of “How stupid is Sarah Palin”?

I think it is lame to call her stupid over this. She’s supposed to talk to people and trust them to do their jobs well to position her favorably. For all she knew, the camera was tightly framed around her face.

I liked RussM’s response best to the “What was that cameraman thinking?” His answer, “This is SO going on Youtube!”

All I can think is… “there but for the grace of God was nearly our President”. Sick right now… don’t know how I’ll be able to buy the bird Sunday after seeing that.
