Video: Palin’s pre-debate pub party

posted at 12:55 pm on September 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

The videos are too short to be useful but someone tipped us to them so we might as well share. The can’t-miss here is the pool report from her appearance. Is Palin really wearing “Sarahcuda” t-shirts now or did the reporter make that up to flavor his dispatch with a little sprinkle of awesome?

I do believe we have partial confirmation.

Note to the ‘Cuda: Blitzer was asking for you last night.

It may honestly be that she isn’t ready for this, though I really, REALLY hope not. (And, please don’t counter fallaciously with a Biden gaffe.)

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 3:03 PM

Is there a test one has to pass to be a good VP candidate? Is it administered by the media? Is it scored based on the media’s “vetting?” Scored on he curve or percentage? Was Lyndon Johnson a good VP candidate? After the assassination, he gave us the Great Society,..but he sure had plenty of experience going in.

a capella on September 27, 2008 at 4:14 PM

I believe O’Reilly Ted Baxter would conduct a straight-up grossly antagonistic interview, with no political a pandering-to-the prevailing-opinion agenda, and needless to say the ratings would be huge.

And maybe he can scream shrilly about Alaskan moose or something to top it all off.

Nichevo on September 27, 2008 at 4:29 PM

Right and I didn’t do that. What I did was notice your subtle surrender-esque way of moaning about our VP candidate.

Well, no… I would suggest that those who are “surrendering” are the ones who have decided that they are content with her performance thus far. I think she can do better, and I don’t think it helps anyone to pretend that what we have seen is anything approaching acceptable.

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 4:30 PM

Puritan1648 on September 27, 2008 at 3:56 PM

Amen.

DaveS needs to speak for himself. I think she is a normal person and not a polished politician. Thats why we like her.

Mercy4Me on September 27, 2008 at 4:47 PM

If Gov. Palin can arouse such ire from the libtards, then we’ve got the right VP candidate.

A side benefit from a McCain/Palin victory: four years of watching the libtards tie themselves in knots trying to blame every adverse occurrence on Sarahcuda!

Mallard T. Drake on September 27, 2008 at 4:50 PM

I think she can do better, and I don’t think it helps anyone to pretend that what we have seen is anything approaching acceptable.

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 4:30 PM

I Think she could do better as well, but I think she will. I hold my breath every time she aproaches a microphone. But, If you fully watch each one on her debates and interviews in the past, then you would have to conclude that we may have a very young Reagan in the makings. We cant ask McCain to drop her, that is unrealistic and silly. We have what we have, Its time to be supportive and cooperative. Palin’s handlers are just as much to blame for her unpreparedness.
A great example is to have a studied Answer that plays well for instances that are known to occure. ie. Everyone knew she would be asked for specifics regarding Bridge to no where. Why didn’t a speach writer have a perfect and polished answer that she could use?
well thats my 2 cents, now i’m broke.

Mercy4Me on September 27, 2008 at 4:47 PM

I think she is a normal person and not a polished politician. Thats why we like her.

Agreed, her “normalcy” is the root of her appeal. That said, Hotair’s comments–to cite just one venue–are full of “normal people” giving much better answers to questions that the ones given by Palin. You can normal and not sound incompetant. I’m not saying she isn’t competant–she clearly is–but she is doing nothing to inspire confidence in people outside of conservative blogs. In fact, she is giving comedians tons of ammo with really, REALLY bad answers.

Again, hopefully “letting her loose” will help, and maybe McCain will actually do that–a big maybe.

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 5:15 PM

DaveS

You pay way to much attention to the MSM and you don’t give enough credit to us normal folks. I see our choices, and I choose McCain/ Palin!

Vince on September 27, 2008 at 5:21 PM

Again, hopefully “letting her loose” will help, and maybe McCain will actually do that–a big maybe.

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 5:15 PM

I would agree, But I think he will, after the vp debate.
There is no way to continue to virginalize her after that debate, she will have to spread her wings and fly or fall!

Amadeus on September 27, 2008 at 5:21 PM

I know I risk getting my head ripped off if I suggest this, but:

What if Sarah bowed out and went back to Alaska, and at the debates, surprise, Mike Huckabee shows up?

“Hi Joe. Ready to tango?”

I like Sarah and frankly, she’s too good for America. Let Alaska keep their beloved governor. Washington will just ruin her.

Let the feedback attacks begin.

By the way, I’m being sincere. I think I love the woman, and its probably because I have a chivalrous streak and don’t like to see her receive such viciousness and disgusting attacks.

Sapwolf on September 27, 2008 at 5:38 PM

I think she can do better, and I don’t think it helps anyone to pretend that what we have seen is anything approaching acceptable.

So anybody who agrees with you is just pretending. How humble of you.

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 5:43 PM

You can normal and not sound incompetant.

I just thought this was worth highlighting.

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 5:44 PM

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 5:44 P

I just thought this was worth highlighting.

Yeah, this crappy laptop has a bad power supply, and it will freeze (and, thus, stop accepting input)for a fraction of a second with regularity. If my comments today haven’t been littered with ommitted words and spaces, or incomplete words, I would be shocked. So yeah… GOT ME!

That said, its also worth noting that your response noting the missing word was, itself, pure fallacy and does nothing to discredit the notion that Palin has seriously, SERIOUSLY hurt herself recently with horrible performances in interviews. I think that this is empirically founded to the extent that it is hardly worth debating.

The real question is how McCain should handle her… will letting her loose to be herself help, or does he know something that we don’t when he has chosen to keep her away from the media. There are realities to deal with, folks.

(It seems a bit “echo-y” in here, no?)

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 5:55 PM

Guys, we need to face reality here. Palin is turning into a source of major embarrassment, and they need to fix that really quickly. Hopefully, letting her “loose” to be herself rather than a talking point machine will fix the problem, but to be honest I’m not so sure of that anymore.

It may honestly be that she isn’t ready for this, though I really, REALLY hope not. (And, please don’t counter fallaciously with a Biden gaffe.)
DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 3:03 PM

You forgot to add “As a lifelong christian conservative republican…blah blah.”
She is more ready than anyone else in the race and you know it. Also more experienced. If you are really not trolling then you need to quit watching whatever it is you’re watching and your sanity will return. Anyone who says she is not ready without bringing up the fact that O has done 0 is just plain silly.

kahall on September 27, 2008 at 6:00 PM

Oh for crying out loud, Sarah Palin is as good as almost any VP and VP candidate I’ve seen in 40 years of voting. Now she’s not perfect. But she is Conservative. She does have some executive experience. She doesn’t totally stammer and fumble. So far she hasn’t outright lied. She has a persona that people feel comfortable with. I could go on, but I think you all are forgetting the likes of Algore, Dan Quayle, Walter Mondale…would you have wanted any of them to be President? And I won’t even get into previous candidates. That said, I think we are putting too much into the media’s view of her. They would have made fun of any Repub candidate…can you imagine how they would have ripped Huckabee to shreds? Their hatred knows no bounds and they jump on every little gaffe while ignoring the enormous lies and fumbles by both Obama and Biden. Even Mitt or Rudy would be found wanting and ridiculed.

Deanna on September 27, 2008 at 6:01 PM

It’s kind of a shame Palin can’t debate Obama. He’d probably sound more erudite than she, but he’d also treat her so disdainfully that she’d come out looking great, and he’d lose big time. It will be interesting to see whether Joe Biden can restrain himself from sneering, but he has a better chance at it than Obama would.

I really wish McCain & Co would get over worrying that Palin will sound ignorant of some major topic. Of course she’s ignorant; she’s been governing Alaska for two years, and the town of Wasilla before that. There’s no shame in that, and no shame in saying so. She knows how to get things done, and she can get that across talking about what she knows.

philwynk on September 27, 2008 at 6:06 PM

You forgot to add “As a lifelong christian conservative republican…blah blah.”

And don’t forget the “and one of the first registered commenters at HotAir”. Yeah, we trolls are just crawling out of the woodwork, eh?

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 6:07 PM

I am now repeating myself and I am sorry but why does she need to be any “better” than the rest of us, when we are the ones being asked to pull our “betters” ass out of the fire. I am sick of it. If you are going to treat me like at unlimited ATM, then darn it put someone with some common sense in D.C. Alaska isn’t going bankrupt.

Cindy Munford on September 27, 2008 at 6:07 PM

Oh for crying out loud, Sarah Palin is as good as almost any VP and VP candidate I’ve seen in 40 years of voting.

There’s a difference between a “potential VP” and “a VP candidate”. I think she is perfectly fine and even exciting as the former, but thus far has been pretty bad as the latter. She definitely brought the base around, which may alone be worth any other downsides in the end. But after the initial surge in enthusiasm for McCain, she has been bleeding support from everyone outside of the base.

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 6:10 PM

I think that all of the attacks on Palin as being inexperienced in national politics are off the mark. Since the democrats are running a one term senator for president its really hard to criticize a one term governor for running for vice. The reason why I think she’s a poor pick is that we have very little evidence of her views and thoughts on foreign policy before being picked for VP. She has written zero position papers on foreign policy. It seems she just hasn’t given much thought to foreign affairs. McCain is 72, and according to actuarial tables there is a 14.2 to 15.1 chance he won’t live through his first term. So its even more urgent that he would pick a VP who’s ready to govern now just in case the unthinkable happens. Palin is a great communicator and able politician and I admire the fact that she is a self made women. But let me be frank, she is NOT qualified right now to be president, and there is small but very real chance that could happen if McCain is elected. Say what you will about Obama being too inexperienced, but he has given tremendous thought to the great issues of the day, and has a coherent worldview as outlined in the first debate, I can’t say the same about Palin.

Ric on September 27, 2008 at 6:10 PM

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 6:10 PM

At the risk of being rube Dave, it’s a done deal. So are all these posts so you can give yourself “I told you so” props if McCain doesn’t win. Because we all know that in the history of our great nation we missed out on some fine presidents because of bad V.P picks.

Cindy Munford on September 27, 2008 at 6:14 PM

And don’t forget the “and one of the first registered commenters at HotAir”. Yeah, we trolls are just crawling out of the woodwork, eh?

DaveS on September 27, 2008 at 6:07 PM

If that is true I stand corrected. I have been here a while as well and have seen your posts before but you are not making any sense to me at all today.

kahall on September 27, 2008 at 6:15 PM

The whole campaign may hinge on the VP debate. McCain and BO have been roughly even in support up to now, and were roughly equal in the debate. Nothing has caused this deadlock to break. If she summons that ‘Cuda style we know exists and gets her message out free of editing and selective coverage of a biased media, then it could reassure the fence sitters and bring back those post-RNC polling numbers.

If she doesn’t, it will still be a hard campaign.

Either way, our responsibility is to do everything we can to turn out our side. Despite the polling, it is still close enough that a strong turnout by our side and overconfidence on their side can bring this home for us.

And to all fellow Californians, we all have to bring up those popular vote numbers as high as we can despite where our electoral votes may go.

Nosferightu on September 27, 2008 at 6:17 PM

Geez Ric! Obama has a coherent worldview!? There is nothing “coherent” about Obama’s worldview. He wants other countries to like us! While that may be nice if it happens, I’m not willing to give up my “worldview” to make that happen!

Ok, but his “coherent worldview” is still wrong even after all the “tremendous thought.” Got it?

Amadeus on September 27, 2008 at 6:41 PM

Obama’s coherent worldview is blame America first, and grovel in shame for the rest of the world’s approval, while taxing us to spread 800 billion MORE dollars in “foreign aid” via the UN.

It’s coherent, but it’s 100% wrong.

I am not sure, for some reason we always seem to be looking for the approval of the MSM when it isn’t going to be given. The fact that a totally inexperienced first time senator is not only getting a free pass but is down right glorified is beyond belief. I think the double standard is more glaring than ever but still we seem surprised. Human nature I guess.

Cindy Munford on September 27, 2008 at 6:49 PM

UNLEASH THE PALIN!

I’m still delighted with McCain’s choice. Now put her out on the front line and quit all this obsessing about her.

Holding her back merely encourages the liberal media to fabricate smears from whole cloth to try to discredit this brave and principled American. Putting her up front encourages the left to lose self-control, increasing the probability of a backlash against them. Look at how she single handedly turned the Obama Campaign into a circus for a week!

She’s had two interviews from liberals that were smarmy and did their best to corner and trap her and other than appearing too programmed she did fine. Now take off the straight jacket, point her in the right direction, and let’s win this election.

DaMav on September 27, 2008 at 6:54 PM

You pick a ticket because you believe they have good character and their beliefs come close to yours. To disqualify the McCain/Palin ticket on her inexperience is completely absurd when you consider the experience of the alternative ticket. Palin can learn. Joe Biden has been in DC for 30 years and look at what Bozo comments he makes. He demonstrates he is unable to learn. Would you really want Biden, with all of his “experience”, representing you? Give me a break. The advantage of not having experience is knowing that you don’t know enough. Biden is sure he knows enough. Who is going to say or do something stupid (with authority, I might add) and who is going to check with experts?

I want people in office who are of good character and that I believe will govern in a manner that comes closer to my ideological preferences as opposed to further from it. I am to the right of McCain/Palin… well to their right. However, if I get a ladder and binoculars and look to my left, Obama/Biden aren’t even in sight.

Amadeus on September 27, 2008 at 6:27 PM

I’m actually a Obama supporter who compulsively reads Hotair for insight into what conservatives are thinking and to have my liberal viewpoint challenged. I guess I should start out each post with a disclaimer as to not mislead people. So yes I do support Obama’s foreign policy. The point I’m trying to make is that it’s unprecedented for any modern VP pick to not have an establish paper trail outlining his or her viewpoints on foreign policy. This is what in my mind definitely disqualifies her, not her lack of experience. Reasonable people can disagree on foreign policy, but I don’t think it’s unreasonable that a candidate a heartbeat away from the presidency at least have a record on foreign policy on which to disagree?

Ric on September 27, 2008 at 7:08 PM

I think i have seen everything “known” about Sarah Palin, Maybe i’m smitten but I think she will do well against Biden. MSM will say she did O.K. but the audience and spot polls will show approval and media will reluctantly give her a passing grade. Dont forget, the media has everyone’s expectations so low that If she just show’s up, she might actually beat the expectations anyway…

Amadeus on September 27, 2008 at 7:13 PM

The point I’m trying to make is that it’s unprecedented for any modern VP pick to not have an establish paper trail outlining his or her viewpoints on foreign policy.

So apparently you were born sometime after Nov. 2, 2004. Otherwise you’d have heard of John Edwards.

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 7:15 PM

Ric,
“So yes I do support Obama’s foreign policy.”

So you approve of meeting with Iran, and attacking in western Pakistan?

exhelodrvr on September 27, 2008 at 7:21 PM

But the real question is : how will the Jooos and blacks be treated by Palin? If racist, I think you will answer one way; if you are not racist, you will not answer.

Fuquay Steve on September 27, 2008 at 7:28 PM

Ric,

I see you have covered your patooty by saying “modern VP pick”. Palin has an opinion on foreign policy and if the MSM would ask her pertinent questions regarding foreign policy when they have the oppotunity instead of “gotcha” questions, her views would be brought out.

As a matter of fact, could you explain Obama’s foreign policy?

Vince on September 27, 2008 at 7:30 PM

I’m sorry Ric, would you explain Obama’s foreign policy?

Vince on September 27, 2008 at 7:31 PM

So apparently you were born sometime after Nov. 2, 2004. Otherwise you’d have heard of John Edwards.

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 7:15 PM

In his time in the Senate, Edwards co-sponsored 203 bills.[17] Among them was Lieberman’s 2002 Iraq War Resolution (S.J.Res.46), which he co-sponsored along with 15 other senators, but which did not go to a vote;…

I think that qualifies as a paper trail.

So you approve of meeting with Iran, and attacking in western Pakistan?

exhelodrvr on September 27, 2008 at 7:21 PM

Yes, I agree with Obama’s positions as laid out in the debate.

And who asked him about it?

Jim Treacher on September 27, 2008 at 8:00 PM

From Larry Sinclair’s blog:

Obama and Campaign Advisers Smoking Pot on the Campaign Trail?
When is it appropriate to drug screen a Presidential candidate? Weed stays in the system for more than 30 days, would Barack Obama and his campaign advisers agree to submit to drug testing immediately? If you have nothing to hide, why wouldn’t you pee in the cup?

Below is information that I know to be from credible sources and it raises the same issues, Barack Obama continues to lie about the extent and time line of his illegal drug use!

“…a spouse of a very high ranking Barack Obama campaign adviser, has expressed publicly her anger with her husband’s on going actions. She found out her husband, along with Barack Obama and two other advisers, one female, have/still are smoking pot on several occasions after campaigning events.”

What a baby-jerk BO is….

gracie on September 27, 2008 at 8:16 PM

Don’t see Biden as winning any blue ribbons. He just plays the “hail fellow well met” inter-laced with dumb remarks. At this point, I’m so ticked with the left that I’d vote for anyone they don’t like.

jeanie on September 27, 2008 at 8:17 PM

And if you liked that putz BO’s stress busting drug use, how’s ’bout his brownshirt activities in MO…even sickens the Governor from a posting on this blog moments ago:

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts – not a free society.”

gracie on September 27, 2008 at 8:26 PM

Sarah Palin is getting beat up from both the Left AND the Right because she’s a libertarian.

The Left hates her cause she’s cool, and culturally hip. And she’s got an ‘R’ by her name. That’s not supposed to happen.

Conservatives are uncomfortable with her cause she doesn’t fit the traditional Republican mold. Thus, some like George Will, criticize her and say she’s “not ready for prime time.”

Hey both you all Liberals and Conservatives. Libertarians are here to stay. Besides Sarah, we have Idaho Governor Butch Otter, SC Gov. Mark Sanford, Arizona Cong. Jeff Flake, and California’s Tom McClintock.

We’re up and coming. Better get used to it.

ericdondero on September 27, 2008 at 8:43 PM

I thank God for Sarah Palin, and I have a feeling that history
will become herstory; she may someday be commander in chief, and I have a feeling that, if that happens she will be our of our best and brightest Presidents. She’s good, folks, which is why the Left and the far Left attack her so much. If she were a weakling, a nobody Republican (Denny Hastert comes to mind) they would be cheering her dragging the McCain ticket down to oblivion. But the truth is Palin is the sparkplug that has gotten the Republicans engine going.
Dems WISH they had a Sarah Palin instead of Joe Biden.

Doug on September 27, 2008 at 9:51 PM

It’s reached the point where I would simply love McCain and Palin to win for nothing more than the sheer joy of watching these leftoid ass clowns spontainously combust in anger.

mylegsareswollen on September 28, 2008 at 2:52 AM

So are we giving ourselves an excuse to lose, is that it? Between the elitists (she’s too common, she’s not ready, she’s an embarrassment) and the McCain Derangement Syndrome sufferers, it looks like everybody’s just drooling to hand the White House to Obama on a silver platter.

rightwingprof on September 28, 2008 at 10:01 AM

Is there a test one has to pass to be a good VP candidate? Is it administered by the media? Is it scored based on the media’s “vetting?” Scored on he curve or percentage? Was Lyndon Johnson a good VP candidate? After the assassination, he gave us the Great Society,..but he sure had plenty of experience going in.

a capella on September 27, 2008 at 4:14 PM

I heard one of the drive-bys on O’Reilly once say that McCain should have run his pick through the media for thier approval – I kid you not. I could not believe the arrogance of that person. BTW, Check out the credentials of Teddy Roosevelt when he was selected VP. Looks almost identical to Sarah Palin.

Fuquay Steve on September 27, 2008 at 7:28 PM

I’ll take the bait.

My suspicion is, she won’t think too much about them as groups, but rather more as individual people. You see, Fuqer, people have rights not because they are members of a group or class, not even a “traditionally oppressed” one, but rather because they are people. (Socialism demands that this truth be discarded in favor of using “traditionally oppressed” groups to forward their agenda.)

As VP, I believe she will uphold this principle.

Check out the credentials of Teddy Roosevelt when he was selected VP. Looks almost identical to Sarah Palin.

In the interest of accuracy and heading off incoming, I must correct this:

Roosevelt had been Assistant Secretary of the Navy and was well-versed in international affairs. He led troops into battle.

“Whore go home”

Is that what they’re chanting? Classy.
