Sarah Palin on Katie Couric: 'And There's the Perky One...'


Sarah Palin discussed the disastrous Katie Couric interview in which she couldn't name a single news source that shaped her views, and her feelings about Levi Johnston on today's Oprah.


In related news, the Wall Street Journal, in its review of Palin's Going Rogue, says that "she writes with sensitivity and affection about her gay college roommate." Back in October, you may remember, HRC's Michael Cole took a trip to Wasilla to find that gay friend Palin mentioned on the campaign trail. He wasn't successful.

  1. It's about to come on in California, and I can't wait to watch it!

  2. The "Palin Show" is in full swing. Let me put my boots on, it's getting thick out here.

  3. Andy, are you aware of the Google ads for Sarah Palin/Newsmax free book offer with magazine subscription right above this post? You can go into your adsense account and block certain advertisements including anything promoting Sarah Palin.

    Just saying.

  4. Palin '12!

    Although I didn't see the whole interview, the word on the (blogospheric) street seems to be that it was good and showed her energy and blah, blah, blah, but wasn't GREAT.

    My hope, then, is that she remains viable enough to snag the Republican nomination before proceeding to go down in flames in the general.

    Mostly, though, I maintain that 2012 speculation remains silly at this point. I mean, things might be so good in 2012 that we won't necessarily need Palin for an easy Obama victory. But if we do, I'm sure she'll be there for us. {;-) (<-She's wearing an ACORN, methinks.)

  5. Sarahcuda took the high road with Ricky Hollywood aka Levi. Right now, the only people, I think, who are on his side *hand up* are gay men and hormonal teenage girls.

  6. Saw the whole thing. Just more defensive posturing and lame excuses to get out of answering anything directly. Same stuff as always, nothing new here, people, move along, move along.

  7. I heard her election in 2012 triggers all the apocalyptic mayan prophecies. Enjoy earth while you can.

  8. Uh - is that a wig? Is she wearing a wig - has it come to this - do lazy lies make your hair fall-out? All she ever had was her looks - and now she has nothing. As for 2012 - she needs to give Kay Bailey Hutchinson a call in Texas and find out what the party-faithful think about a woman past child-bearing age. Yes, Hutchinson was younger than McCain - but too old for the ticket. Unlike 2008 - Sarah is a grandmother now - and Damn girl is starting to look it.

    As for Levi - tell us Sarah - when you went to Republican-controlled male-dominated DC as Mayor of a little town of 5,500 and walked away with 28 million federal dollars - were your actions any less whorish than Levi's? You did not go to the state capitol for your little town - you went to DC - why was that Sarah - why did you go to DC - did you take your crown and sash - oh wait - a loser does not get a crown - never mind. Do you imagine that the epic legendary sexual dysfunction of Republican men makes your actions somehow less whorish?

    Her end will be a long painful slow curtain - were she not such a stupid, ignorant, bitter, piece of white-trash - it would be sad to watch.

  12. Roommate? Which roommate? Didn't this intellectual heavyweight attend like six colleges before graduating with a journalism degree?

  15. Horace - really --- a grown woman who wants to be PRESIDENT ripping into a someone barely out of his teens --- condescendingly demeaning him as "Ricky Hollywood" - all because the guy held up a t-shirt with those words on Hollywood Blvd ... so she lies and smears him on national television. Why? Because she can -- her followers want to hate and dislike ... and pray for that sinner. Fuck her.... she was a direct and open bitch with her condescending braying about "PORN" - she only went there for votes.

  16. Since Palin frowns on porn, I wonder what she thinks about her new buddy Carrie Prejean's sex tapes and nude pics?

    Posted by: patrick nyc | Nov 17, 2009 12:23:55 AM

  17. I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but from the sounds of it I have seen it in its entirety (or at least the general theme).... I would love to see her take responsibility for ONE (1) thing that went wrong. Just one. She continually proves that she hasn't got what it takes to lead this country (or the state of Alaska for that matter). She's nothing more than a talking head for the ultra conservative wing of the Republican party - which seems to have all the power in that party now. Good news for those of us on the left, I suppose.

  18. The world would be a far better place with a lot less of her kind in it; unfortunately, she is the future. Her brand of forceful, invent-on-the-fly obnoxious truthiness will keep her in the spotlight for years to come.

  19. What's with the Palin book ads? That is the height of hypocrisy.

    Your blog is now SO full of interactive ads and bells and whistles it takes forever to load. I understand the need to make a living, but perhaps if you cleaned house a little and at least ran ads that are not contrary to your blog's philosophy...

  20. 1. If she weren't such a political threat, why are people still bashing her (no one cares what Dennis Kucinich does b/c he will never be a viable national candidate).
    2. She called Levi Ricky Hollywood b/c that is what he is calling himself. Didn't all of you guys tear into Bristol Palin who was only 17 at the start of all this?
    3. Watch the whole interview - she DID take responsibility for things that happened but also was honest about the McCain handlers not keeping her informed about what was going on. AND, why would ANYONE who is selling a book give away all the answers in an interview. They want people to buy the book.

    People on this blog preach tolerance/acceptance but turn around and call conservatives every name in the book. Listen up guys, we (Gays) cannot and will not get the equal rights we deserve WITHOUT some conservatives on our side. It just won't happen. And if every single conservative talker out there is viciously attacked by our community, the more moderate conservatives will turn their backs on us. We need to work together, not separately. I, for one, will continue my fight to engage conservatives in intellectual discussions and debates without namecalling. I would hope some of you would do the same.

  21. Is it just me, or has she not told us what newspapers she reads, yet?

    Posted by: JonBenet | Nov 17, 2009 9:46:18 AM

  22. She also reveals what we can expect from Levi's forthcoming Playgirl spread:

  23. "I'm a great lover of books." Honey, Twilight doesn't count.

    BC, I'd be more willing to at least respect a conservative if their rhetoric wasn't based on b.s. soundbites, homophobia, the enslavement of women's reproductiove parts, and their religion . . . I'm all for religious freedom, but don't shove your flavor of Christianity down my throat.

    Palin is the enemy of intelligence, the environment, science, feminism, sexual autonomy . . . and let's not forget her creepy jingoistic rallies during the campaign where threats on Obama were made and she said nothing to stop them. I will never forgive John McCain for letting this harpie out of Alaska.

  24. People on this blog preach tolerance/acceptance but turn around and call conservatives every name in the book. Listen up guys, we (Gays) cannot and will not get the equal rights we deserve WITHOUT some conservatives on our side.
    And what do conservatives say about us BC? Anyone who thinks that the Rush and Beck douche bags will support us is high. The ones who support us do not have an agenda against us, they are the true conservatives who believe in equal rights for all, and don't label it 'special rights'. or other lame code words.

    Palin is so full of shit her eyes are brown. She sits there with a straight face and says in one breath that Levi is welcome home, that they don't like drama, oh yea, and he's making porn.

    Funny how she does not bring up her buddy Prejean and her porn tapes and photos. At least Levi made some cash.

  25. @Alex - I seem to recall threats being made against Bush/Chaney/Rove in several places (TV shows, comedians,this blog) and no one stopped it. In fact, it was encouraged. The biggest problem I have with all of this is that she was treated very unfairly. No liberal female candidate would have ever been treated this way. I have never heard Palin call anyone a name nor be vicious towards a group of people. She has her opinions, as you and I do...they just may differ. A problem is this has never been about Palin's political view points. This has always been about the fact that she is a female conservative who was moving up in government. If a female can do that, liberals lose a talking point. Case in point, had Hillary won, one entire part of the Dems platform would be eliminated.

    @Patrick - I don't give a crap about what conservatives say about us. I will not stoop the the level of name calling. However, I watched as Glenn Beck said that gay marriage should be left up to the states, if states say yes, then yes, if they say no then no. Then each state will also decide if they will accept marriages from other states (i.e. New York). You're right that the FAR FAR right will never agree with us. Just as the FAR FAR left prays that we still get discriminated against. Think about it, if there was no discrimination, what would the Left fight for? As far as Levi, I truly thinks she wants her grandson to have a father in his life. But really Patrick...Levi is in all of this for the fame and money. No one would give a crap about him if he were not attached to the Palins. Why are some people so quick to believe what a 19 year old kid is saying just because it is "Anti-Palin." And finally, Oprah led the interview. Oprah did not bring up Prejean.

    And again, if she were so unintelligent, so stupid, so irrelevant - why is she getting so much attention on a national level. People don't try to take down others that are not a threat. The more the Left attacks her, the stronger she gets.
