Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Will Palin Use An Earpiece or Both Hands and Feet?

I am assuming that Sarah Palin has been given the questions in advance (far in advance) so that she can google the answers.  She can always dance around the question and not answer it like she did in the debate with Joe Biden during the 2008 elections. 

I would check for earpieces as that is a big possibility.  I'm also sure that the media will treat her with kid gloves as they always have (unless Katie Couric is there) and we can expect her right-wing followers to be amazed by her as they always are.

Palin to Answer Questions From NY Business Group

Former Alaska governor expected in New York to answer questions from business group leader

By FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press

Forget Twitter and Facebook, Sarah Palin is answering questions in front of the mainstream media.

The Arizona shooting, President Obama's performance, a possible presidential run and other topics will be on the agenda Thursday when the former Republican vice presidential candidate appears at a luncheon of the Long Island Association, the region's largest business group.

Palin has agreed to answer questions posed by the president of the organization for about an hour with cameras rolling, LIA President Kevin Law said. "It will be interesting to see and hear what direction she thinks this country ought to be heading in," he said.

"Maybe this is the start of a presidential campaign," said Republican strategist Ed Rollins. "She has been beaten up by the media for doing nothing but her Tweets. This may be the first foray. Of course when you stand up in front of the cameras, you have to be on guard and make sure your answers are precise."

The Long Island Association has previously welcomed former presidents and other national leaders to speak at its meetings, but the meetings are usually closed to the media at the request of the speaker, Law said. Palin, however, who has been criticized for limiting access to her by the mainstream media, has agreed to allow cameras and reporters record the conversation.

Law won't say how much Palin is getting paid, but newsmakers of her stature have been known to cash six-figure checks for such appearances.  (Seriously? Who is more ignorant? Sarah Palin or those who keep paying big money to hear her when all they have to do is read her twitters or FB.  It's free folks!-Mem)

A spokeswoman for the Washington Speakers Bureau, which is representing Palin for the speech, did not return a telephone call or e-mail seeking comment.

Law said the Arizona shooting last month, which provoked criticism of Palin for using metaphors and imagery of gun use during last fall's midterm campaign, would certainly be discussed. "Nobody's out to sandbag anybody, but we'd like to hear what she has to say," he said.

Ruth B. Mandel, director of the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University doesn't see Palin's appearance as anything more than another avenue for her to generate income.

Mandel sees nothing risky for Palin in appearing before a bank of television cameras.

"At this point, she's been around. The headlines about her lack of experience answering media questions, that was over two years ago," Mandel said. "She's been before innumerable microphones since then. She's somebody who has honed her message and gained a tremendous amount of experience in public give and take."

Update:  So what happened?

Sarah hints at WH run, slams Obamas -No new "news" here so lets move on! 

 “I don’t have a name to give you right now, but what I would look for in character is someone who’s been on the front lines understanding how to administer and how to lead a team. ...(and I still need more time to milk money out of all those poor saps that think I'm smart, wink-Mem) Gosh, nobody’s more qualified [for the] multitaksing than a woman, a mom… who’s administered locally, state, with energy isues, so maybe a mayor, (who built a recreation center at the same time using funds and workers to build her house?-Mem) a governor (who quit half way -Mem) maybe.("Ya know me and my white trash family would look good  in that big old white house!"-Mem)
