    Besides the Gibson interview, has she had any interaction with the press? I know she hasn't held any press confrences, but has anyone else had any chance to ask her anything?

    I love, love, LOVE how the media is calling her out on this! CNN is reporting that the media got to observe for 29 seconds before being escorted out of the room. How stupid is she anyway?

    This is actually frightening. Bush III indeed.

    She's totally inept at what being president will entail. But everyone already knows that.

    What's even worse is their rejection of the free press (staged photo shoots and pre-approved questions are not free press) is the LAST thing the US needs. The government is supposed to serve the people, and it should be transparent. It's not a secret society. That's just scary.

    Call me a cynic, but I'm starting to think this is what's going on---McCain &Co. WANT everyone to be talking about how unprepared and unqualified she is, and to get all worked up about this. Get those expectations of her down to absolute rock-bottom for the VP debate. Then, if she doesn't vomit out of fear or flick boogers on Joe Biden in the debate, then holy hell! See! She's prepared after all! Everyone was wrong! She's great! Essentially, the same thing happened at the Convention.

    They are counting on the grace of low expectations.....just wait.

    I think you are totally right about this and for many people, expectations have been lowered by 8 years of George's inability to string words together coherently.

    BUT, I don't think she's going to get away with it. There has been too much backlash against her for totally valid reasons.

    She and John were here yesterday and had a rally in Media. The crowd was not that large. I had friends who went so they could hold up Obama signs. They were kept far from the press view. One had a sign that said "Michelle Obama is a real woman. Try it Pitbull!"

    Keep in mind that she also had foreign policy advisers standing behind her in the room. This woman is hopeless. Why are the Repubs keeping up this sham? It's not too late for them to admit they made a mistake in choosing her and I would have a lot more respect for McCain if he did that. Sheesh.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Gwen Ifill, who is moderating the VP debate, will ask Palin a question about the news media and the executive branch. If Palin keeps avoiding the press, perhaps Gwen will do just that since it is something everyone will want to know the answer to.

    So MCtard let the press in for exctly 20 seconds, and then kicked them out again.

    When is the press gonna fucking wise up and say "You don't wanna answer any questions? Fine, no publicity for you."

    Every time McCain/Palin does this, I find it harder and harder to understand why people are not supposed to like Obama.
