Jeez. Just… jeez. I’m not quite sure what to say that won’t seem like piling on.
Well, one thing. Katie Couric has interviewed Sarah Palin in several rounds now. At least three times (McCain and regulation, Palin’s media consumption and Supreme Court decisions), Palin’s stumbles followed pretty much the same pattern:
SP: Vague but confident answer!
KC: Can you give me an example?
SP: Words! Here are words!
KC: But again, Governor: one specific example.
SP: In conclusion, words!
The interviews occurred, and unspooled, over time. Did no one coach Palin: when Katie Couric (or anyone) asks you a question, make a point of having specific examples ready?
Or did they?
