Shockingly enough, Sarah Palin took a spontaneous question today from a reporter, who asked her if she believes our presence in Iraq and Afghanistan is inflaming Islamic extremists. She then makes the false assertion that Iraq is somehow tied to 9/11.
Also, a peek at the second part of Katie Couric's interview which airs tonight. Palin defends her foreign policy experience, because Alaska lies between Canada and Russia. She also bombs on a question about the bailout.
If you missed the earlier clips, watch them here. Can there be any doubt why they're keeping her from the press?
Watch them, AFTER THE JUMP...

This one is really astonishing:
“But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy…”
What? This is the issue her running mate John McCain supposedly “suspended” his campaign for (even though he hasn’t really suspended it), the biggest issue facing our nation at the moment, and Palin has to check her crib sheet?
