Sarah Palin Watch: The Supreme Court Case Non-Answer

Alaska governor Sarah Palin interviewed by CBS’ Katie Couric

The transcript:

COURIC: What other Supreme Court decisions [than Roe v. Wade] do you disagree with?

PALIN: Well, let’s see. There’s –of course –in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are–those issues, again, like Roe v Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know–going through the history of America, there would be others but–

COURIC: Can you think of any?

PALIN: Well, I could think of–of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a Vice President, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.

All Flap knows is that he is not very optimistic about tomorrow night’s debate. But, Flap has been wrong before.

It is do or die for Sarah Palin tomorrow night. She either acquits herself of this inability to answer these questions and moves on to become a national political star or she fades away as a footnote in history.


But, then again, THIS Sarah Palin as in her Alaska Governor’s debates could show up tomorrow night:

  1. So far she appears to be over her head. Given the nose dive McCain has taken in the recent polling, if Sarah falls on her face in the debate, it may be all over for McCain.

    The present economic situation is killing McCain and the republicans. Unfortunately, McCain does a miserable when it comes to discussing the problem, and laying out his economic plan ( assuming he has one ).

  2. Dennis,

    It may be over anyway. Voters are fed up with the economy and they blame Bush and the GOP.

    McCain could have made a stand last week on economic policy and supported an alternative financial bailout bill but he bailed out.

    8 years of Obama will be just what the GOP needs to come back.

    Sarah Palin may have been rushed into duty but can come back stronger with more experience. She has a track record.

    Let’s see how she does tomorrow night.

  3. McCain did not distinguish himself on economic issues at the last debate. I tend to agree with you–it may be over this time around. However, it may only take Obama one term to take the country down, making way for the return of republicans in many of the seats of power.

  4. Yep, remember it took only two years of Bill Clinton for Newt and the Contract With America to win GOP majority in the House for the first time in over 40 years.

    Me thinks the country wants a change in party.

    If Palin does well tomorrow night and still loses at least she will have a leg up on Romney and Huckabee in four years.
