What’s clear is that the results of the vice presidential experiment are already in. Palin, the “regular citizen,” is running a flawless campaign. Biden, the man of “prudence” and “experience,” is making a fool of himself two or three times a week.
I expect that this is before he watched the Couric interview.
One of his commenters makes a nice observation, pulling separate quotes from the article.
“As far as I am aware, she has committed not a single gaffe.”
” ‘A gaffe,’ as Michael Kinsley once noted, ‘is when a politician tells the truth.’ “
UPDATE: In a gaffe of my own, I screwed up the link. It was in Forbes. Not WSJ.
UPDATE2: He had not seen the interview. In a post at NRO, the author – quoting a reader – said:
I desperately want Sarah Palin to continue to be an asset to the ticket.Â Having said that, I don’t see how you can possibly publish the statement ” In just under a week, she had mastered the interview format” with a date of September 26th.Â Â Did you not see the Couric interview?Â Â Â I would suggest that she has not only not mastered the format but is, in fact, regressing.
No, to be honest, I didn’t see the Couric interviewâ€”I had to file the column before the interview aired.Â Do the emails in my inbox make me eager to watch the interview on YouTube?Â No they do not.
