itty bitty talking point thingy

from:  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/26/us/politics/26watch.html?em

Ms. Couric asked her questions firmly but gently, careful not to
seem flippant or condescending. But she ended on a “gotcha” moment.
After Ms. Palin attacked Senator Barack Obama
for saying he would meet with leaders of Syria and Iran without
preconditions, Ms. Couric reminded the governor that she recently met
with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger,
who supports direct diplomacy with both countries. “Are you saying
Henry Kissinger is naïve?” Ms. Couric asked. Ms. Palin replied, “I’ve
never heard Henry Kissinger say, ‘Yeah, I’ll meet with these leaders
without preconditions being met.’ ”

After the interview, Ms.
Couric faced the camera and added a postscript. “Incidentally, we
confirmed Henry Kissinger’s position following our interview,” she
said, explaining that Mr. Kissinger supports talks “without
preconditions.”

  2. Oh, the things Gov. Sarah Palin hasn't ever heard! Doesn't mean they aren't true or didn't happen, though. How she is anything but a liability to the campaign in anything but still photographs is a mystery. Is it any wonder the Republicans want to hide — er, i mean "shield" — her from the press.
