Part I of Part I of the Palin Interview

September 11, 2008

So, on top of splitting the interview up into three parts over two days, they are also splitting tonight’s segment in half, part at the beginning of the show, part at the end, hoping we’ll watch the whole thing. I have it on mute.

The main thing to take away from this first segment is that Gibson isn’t being anywhere near as much of a shill as everyone predicted he would be. He made a point of repeating the questions she wouldn’t answer over and over again, which was good. Let’s hope he keeps it up.

Other than that, I think Palin didn’t look so great refusing to give direct answers. This is something everyone does, of course, but she wasn’t that smooth about it, and looked pretty rattled at being called on it.

Finally, while Kossites will no doubt be gloating over the fact that she didn’t know what ‘the Bush Doctrine’ referred to, I doubt this little gotcha moment will matter at all.
