Open thread: Palin on “Hannity & Colmes”

posted at 8:40 pm on September 17, 2008 by Allahpundit

You’ll all be watching so let’s open a thread. Here’s the extended excerpt from the interview, thick with populist laments about “corruption” on Wall Street, in case you missed it in Headlines. Some commenters were grumbling that it’s too vague and boilerplate, but most people will be studying her less for flashes of insight than for reassurance that she has some basic sense of what she’s talking about. Grade on the curve for now; the debate with Biden is the final exam.

If the public at large is cooling to her, the crowds most assuredly are not.

I think McCain and Palin are holding their fire until the debates. They know that will be the decider. Why give away their game plan now?

PattyJ on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

I wonder if Colmes sleeps in a nightdress…

It won’t save you, we manage to kill even a few blaze-orange, two legged deer every year. Trust to luck and be sure to bob and weave. Or zig zag.

Bishop on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

OH NO THE FUCK SHE DIDN’T ACCUSE MCCAIN OF BEING IN FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC’S POCKETS.

God**m.

fiatboomer on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

Is this typical? Do they usually follow a high-profile interview with opposition surrogates playing rebuttal?

capitalist piglet on September 17, 2008 at 9:31 PM

Pretty much.

highhopes on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

LIAR! Bush and McCain both proposed tighter oversight on FM/FM pre 2006

common sensineer on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

Okay-

this Demotroll gal needs slapped down-

Hannity go!

FiveWays on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

Someone get her some Nasonex.

Oops! I mean the one on now…not our Sarah.

Why is Obama’s campaign getting a rebuttal?

My question as well. This isn’t a SOTU.

Missy on September 17, 2008 at 9:34 PM

I think McCain and Palin are holding their fire until the debates. They know that will be the decider. Why give away their game plan now?

I somewhat agree, but there is a tactical case to be made for dropping some lines in advance of the debates.

Pianobuff on September 17, 2008 at 9:34 PM

Hannity reads hot air!

Star20 on September 17, 2008 at 9:35 PM

highhopes, FYI Carolyn Parrish (idiot with the doll) lost her seat and is now a nothing city politico… but I take your point.

You keep Palin, go beat Obama with her and do what you do best, make the world a better place. We’ll just muddle on up here ;)

dailybayonet on September 17, 2008 at 9:35 PM

What a Democratic lie… NY Times article on 9/11/2003 discusses how the Bush administration proposed tighter controls on FM and FM, but Rengel and other democrats opposed it.

Here’s the link.

Pianobuff on September 17, 2008 at 9:37 PM

I like Palin, but this is a little too populist for me…

Which part? How she obviously wants the government to work FOR THE PEOPLE? How she claims that the country’s natural resources BELONG TO THE PEOPLE? The way she trashes the government process in Washington as NOT BEING RESPONSIVE TO THE PEOPLE? Her statement that Wall Street has a lot of corruption and doesn’t SERVE THE PEOPLE?

Which part of this is too populist for you meathead?

JonPrichard on September 17, 2008 at 9:37 PM

Alan needed a reason to show up to the studio today. Hence the rebuttal from the obabimbo.

Sean completely smashed her with facts…Obama and his supporters are suck liars. What legislation did Obama introduce 2 yr ago? These people are such liars…wow.

I guess Obama is now claiming to be McCain.

Obama has cronies at Fannie and Freddie and His slumlord friend has cronies at Lehman Brothers that financed him and the slumlord financed Obama!

Corrupt from top to bottom..

The corruption does trickle down! LMAO!!!

I think the Obama campaign is fining it’s surrogates $1,000 each time they use the words “Palin”

CanadianGuy on September 17, 2008 at 9:33 PM

Just a political tactic. Sticking with terminology like “the VP nominee” dehumanizes Sarah Palin from the moose hunting hockey mom into some generic Republican nominee.

cannonball on September 17, 2008 at 9:40 PM

Which part of this is too populist for you meathead?

Well, meathead, blaming all the corruption on Wall Street… and NOT Barney Frank and all the Dems that stood in the way of reform of Fann and Fred. Considering how hip-deep Obama and the Dems are with GSEs, she could’ve knocked it out of the part, RIGHTFULLY putting blame on them. Instead she went with populist bunting.

I still love her, but frustrating when only Wall Street gets the blame for Democrat economic/social engineering. Also, Dems laws demanded wall street give mortages to people who couldn’t afford them. She could’ve said that.

Pasalubong on September 17, 2008 at 9:40 PM

I kept expecting Colmes’ creepy eyes to peer out from that vase of flowers behind her.

Jim Treacher on September 17, 2008 at 9:40 PM

Chudi on September 17, 2008 at 9:38 PM

I was curious about that too. What legistlation.

Her inability to answer shows how powerful those points are.

McCain needs to hammer those home.

That congresswoman was a piece of work. Apparently the new strategy is to make up shit. “Barack Obama introduced new legislation…” Please. Yeah, and I jumped out the window this morning and flew to my office instead of taking the subway…

D2Boston on September 17, 2008 at 9:43 PM

Hannity’s 1st 2 segments on radio this afternoon were on Fannie/Freddie, and it may have been the best 20 minutes of radio he’s done in the past 4 years. He has a surprisingly deep understanding of the politics surround the subject.

fiatboomer on September 17, 2008 at 9:43 PM

1. If I understand this right, the Alaskan government takes money from oil company profits and gives it to the people at large? I guess that works out well unless you have stock in oil companies or if you’re the oil derrick worker, geologist, or mechanical engineer working for the oil companies.
2. So, what can she do as the vice president to make us more “energy independent”, “more prosperous”, “safer”, etc.? Under the Constitution, her roles would be:
“The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.”
“If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President.”
“In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.”
