Katie Couric: Palin v Biden On Roe v Wade

The McCain campaign most likely is having a team meeting and writing a press-release which will accuse Katie Couric of being a sexist. Katie Couric has done a great public service by asking Palin some real questions and giving voters the opportunity to see how Palin answers.

What is most alarming about Palin’s answer to Couric is that Palin says she believes in ‘privacy’ which is a main component of the Roe v Wade decision in 1973.  According to the Roe decision, most laws against abortion in the United States violated a constitutional right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

So it seems that Palin disagrees with Roe v Wade but doesn’t understand the fundamentals of Roe v Wade since she believes in the ‘privacy’ dynamic. Palin doesn’t seem to get the nuances of any issue. Just incredible.




Obama/Biden 2008!



  1. For some reason, I can’t follow her train of thought. Brushing up on her knowledge and use of the English language could be beneficial to her.

  2. Cats, when Palin rambles on after a while I forget what the question is – that must be a deliberate trick of hers.

    What else could it be? Dumbness?

Is a dunce gal dat!!!

  4. Couric is sexist? Because she challenged Palin. The media is liberal? Because Palin is attention grabbing. The moderator is biased? Because of course there is no such thing as professionalism.

    If this is too difficult for Palin, what is she going to do as VP in D.C.? It isn’t a kindergarten class. She either has to show some moxy or go back to the PTA. And she is liable to pull it off.

    I read on Vanity Fair’s web that she complimented her opponent for Gov. in Alaska for his grasp of the facts and his ability to talk about details, but then asked or said, “but does it matter?” He went on to say she was the queen of vagueness and sidestepping, with the ability to reconnect with her supporters with rhetoric.

    There are different types of intelligence, and her ability to connect with a certain body of voters is what matters.

    Seems that if politcians are certain types of “smart,” then those politicians distances themselves from the voters.

    Flip side, being perceived as being a certain type of ignorant is beneficial–as it is equated with a type of innocence and nonthreat.
