In a Fox News interview, Sarah Palin actually criticized the media for turning the Republican presidential race into a reality TV show. She also accuses the media of not vetting the candidates well enough. She’s right, of course — that’s exactly what the major media does with campaigns and most journalists don’t do their job in truly vetting what is important about candidates.
But this being said by a woman who was put on a presidential ticket with almost no one, including McCain, knowing anything about her? By a woman who quit her job as governor to literally do a reality TV show? You can’t write a joke that funny. She also said this:
“I’m going to keep repeating though, Greta, through my process of decision-making with my family and with my close friends as to whether I should throw my name in the hat for the GOP nomination for 2012: Is a title worth it?
Does a title shackle a person? Are they — someone like me, maverick, you know, I do go rogue, and I call it like I see it, and I don’t mind stirring it up…. is a title and is a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out there, out of the box, not allowing handlers to shape me?”
And by being a “maverick” and “going rogue” she means that she has a tendency to say really stupid things on camera.
