Palin Annoyed By Couric, Wants More Power Than Cheney

Having failed in two interviews with network anchors and being limited to avoiding answers to questions in last night’s debate, the McCain campaign decided it would be safer to limit Palin to friendly interviewers, such as Fox and right wing talk radio. She might actually be of some help to the campaign there if she helps motivate people on the far right to get out to vote. Palin was interviewed by Carl Cameron of Fox and there has actually been a couple items of interest to come out of the interview.

Sarah Palin clearly preferred her interview on Fox as she said how Katie Couric annoyed her. That is hardly surprising as she did not like follow up questions which exposed the fact that she did not understand the issues being asked about.

The next item makes us relieved that in reality Palin will probably be used for nothing other than ceremonial events and outreach to the far right should McCain be elected. She elaborated on her statement during the debate regarding wanting more power for the vice president:

CAMERON: Would you change any of that, (INAUDIBLE) than the Bush/Cheney administration in terms of the power of the executive?

PALIN: Well, again, as I tried to explain last night, our executive branch will know what our job is. We have the three very distinct branches of government. You know, we might be bleeding our authority over to the Legislative or Judicial branch to do our job in the Executive branch as administers.

If Palin could be taken seriously, (or if she ever winds up with real power) she could present an even greater threat to separation of powers than Dick Cheney, who Biden referred to as “the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.”

    She proclaimed herself to be an “energy expert”,  when will she meet the press to tell us about energy?

    More power than Cheney.  Fortunately, she’s clueless enough to come out and say it publicly.  The only way you get power that doesn’t constitutionally belong to you is by sneaking around and doing it quietly, like Cheney has.  Luckily for all of us, she’s not smart enough to do that.  She hasn’t even figured out that when you lie during a nationally televised debate, you’ll be found out.  Here’s just one example:  As one comment here says: “Lighten up; she’s only lying about genocide!”

    Annoyed?  Couric was nothing but polite.  Palin should be annoyed with herself!
