THE Woman Speaks & Speaks & Speaks!

For those who were under the impression that Gov. Sarah Palin was to scared, timid, or air headed to speak...well think again! Palin is no Barbie Doll! Charles Gibson of ABC will conduct THREE separate interviews with the Republican vice presidential candidate.

The 3 interviews will form the basis of a special prime-time edition of "20/20" Friday.

Gibson's interviews with Palin will be spread around other ABC news programs.

"World News" Thursday, (& Friday?) will have excerpts of the talks.

"Nightline" and "Good Morning America." also.

"The prime-time special, at 10 p.m. EDT, will also include a bio of Palin by ABC's Kate Snow and a round-table discussion on the presidential race moderated by George Stephanopoulos.

The Alaska Republican has proven to be a ratings-grabber during her short time on the national political scene. Her speech to the GOP national convention last week was seen by more than 40 million people, according to Nielsen Media Research.

A Fox News Channel documentary, "Governor Palin: An American Woman" last Saturday was the highest-rated prime-time documentary in the network's history, with 2.7 million viewers."

CNN is also planning a Palin special this weekend.

"The first interview with the Republican ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin went to People Magazine, which on (Aug 29) published its interview just hours after the surprise announcement was made."

I know that's a lot of information, and T.V. programing to get straight. That is why I highlighted it. Today I went out, and bought a new VHS tape for my combo VCR/DVD. Now comes the task of programing it. Shot! I should have picked up a People Magazine while I was at the store. Hm, I wounder if people will now start complaining that she's giving to many interviews?

Added Later - She is also on Entertainment Tonight Thursday & Friday.

And, based on the preview I just heard, she totally skips right over her understanding of national defense or the Bush Doctrine.

As I heard from a objective analyst about the Bush Doctrine: "It was like asking someone to 'use it in a sentence' at a spelling bee."

Hi Hahn at Home,

"Based on the preview I just heard." So you haven't seen it yet? Maybe your in a different time zone. I forgot the state that your in. Anyway, I suggest that you watch it, and get back to me. She does not skip over it, and has a very interesting reply. I have a feeling that you will have a lot more to say about it.

Hi Hahn at Home,

Concerning the "Bush Doctrine" that you mentioned. I hope that you will see that segment and comment on it. What she said scared me. I have a feeling we would be on the same page.

Palin has a bad record. Public debt, redecorating her office, legal problems... she's really not fit for the VP spot. She was a bad mayor, and the only reason she won the governor's election was because the incumbent was so corrupt and unpopular.

But she's against abortion even in cases of rape and incest. That will win her strong support from the Republican base.

Hi shrimplate,


I'm not really a fan of Palin, but it sounds like your exaggerating. Gov. Palins approval rating is in the 80s, so she must be doing something right. I think her Public debt is a mixed bag, I have to look into that more. She said in a very recent interview that her town wanted some kind of stadium, and voted on it. That's why the town is in debt. I have not gone to factcheck dot org yet, to see how truthful she was. Legal problems? Yes, with her bully ex-brother-in-law. He made threats against her family. Maybe she got over protective. I don't know. That is for the courts to decide, and not for us to prejudge. Remember "innocent until proven guilty." Redecorating her office is bad? Oh come on! She can come over to my home and redecorate her little heart out.
