What Would You Ask Palin?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Sarah Palin is back again. Now she's taking shots at Tina Fey, Katie Couric, John McCain and the media.

The former Vice Presidential candidate gave an exclusive interview to conservative John Ziegler for a documentary on how Barack Obama got elected.

What would you ask the governor?

In it, she lashes out at Tina Fey and Katie Couric for exploiting her during her 12-week odyssey as John McCain's running mate. She said a Saturday Night Live skit crossed the line when Fey, who parodied Palin, said marriage is a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers. It was a reference to Palin's then-pregnant and unmarried daughter.

Palin blamed the McCain campaign for the often referenced interview with CBS news anchor Katie Couric in which Palin couldn't name the newspapers she reads. She says it's all McCain's fault for granting additional access after the first interview with Couric went poorly. Poorly is an understatement. Palin came off as functionally illiterate.

Today Palin's office released a statement accusing the media of taking her statements out of context to, "create adversarial situations." She also says the media would have gone easier on her and her family if she'd been on the Democratic ticket. It should be noted that the conservative Ziegler went pretty easy on Palin, refusing to ask any difficult questions including, for example, what newspaper do you read, Governor?

Here’s my question to you: Is there anything you'd like to ask Sarah Palin?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?

Bill from Medford, New Jersey writes:
I'd like to ask her if, knowing what she knows now, she'd do it all over again for 50-50 odds of winning.

JD writes:
Actually, I have 2 questions for Governor Palin. #1 – When is your 15 minutes up? #2 – Where's a good place to buy fresh turkey?

Tom from Windsor, Wisconsin writes:
Nothing. She has already told us everything she knows.

Terry from Iowa writes:
Dear Mrs. Palin, would you please go away? You are an embarrassment to yourself and the great state of Alaska. You should be the poster child for the declining standards of our education system and the ignorance and arrogance of the greatest oxymoron, the Christian Right.

Karl from San Francisco, California writes:
During the campaign, you sounded dumb. Now, you sound even dumber. Which is the real Sarah Palin?

Gerry from Toronto, Canada writes:
I have only one question for Sarah Palin. What does it cost to get her to stay in Alaska and keep her mouth shut?

RM in Poland, New York writes:
Is stupidity something you practice or is it something that comes naturally to you?

Michael from Florida writes:
I'd like to know why she puts up with people like you.

    Absolutely nothing, Jack.
    She needs to stay in Alaska, quit the blame game (she has no one to blame but herself) and let the rest of us Americans alone.
    Another worthless question.

  7. Dave, Brooklyn, NY

    Yes. I’d like to ask her why she doesn’t just go back to Alaska and stay there where she might find a few people who like her and aren’t embarrassed by her inability to answer simple questions such as, “What periodicals do you read?” If she thinks that is a trick question, I’d hate to see how she would respond to something serious.

  19. Ray in Nashville

    Yes, I'd ask her why is she still talking? She botched her initial interviews with the press after being chosen as Senator McCains running mate and is still trying to blame Katie Couric. Now she is saying that Caroline Kennedy is not getting the same bad press that she got. Personally, I think Ms. Kennedy has been castigated in the press, most of it deservedly so, but I would point out that Governor Palin was a complete unknown and Americans wanted answers. Americans have known Ms. Kennedy since her childhood.

  24. Bizz, Quarryville, Pennsylvania

    I would ask her to please stop talking to the press and giving interviews. She is really not good at it. I am tired of hearing her high pitch voice using Alaska street talk making her sound like someone who just walked out of the woods. I was hoping I would not have to watch any more interviews from her or Joe the plumber after the election. I think she needs to learn how to talk in a manner that people can understand her better in the lower 48. That is also a true of Carolyn Kennedy who I also find annoying when she talks. I find it very hard to believe that she is a lawyer.

  29. Joe, Highland, IN

    I would ask Gov. Palin if she can answer any question about the campaign without blaming someone else. The simple truth is that she was ill-prepared for the national stage and like a kid who has been caught doing something, she blamed everyone around her. We've seen from the last eight years that these guys aren't good at owning up to their mistakes, so I guess she was just marching lockstep with the Bush-Cheney leadership. She forgets that she was the one tripping up on Katie Couric's softball questions, not the media that reported it - sometimes with transcripts because the quotes were closer to Portugese than English. (Please Portugal, don't take offense.)

    I would love to ask Palin as a so called Christian, why did she go so negative on Barack Obama, lie against him and did not stop her crowds from horrible horrible threats and statements against him? Is it some form of Christianity we don't know about?

    Sarah why do attack Katy Couric when she is not present? Ms. Couric was trying to help you along by asking you such an easy media question regarding what you read, I could see the pain on Ms. Couric's face as you struggled to answer such a simple question. She actually felt sorry for you. When you're playing the role of attack dog you have no problem with the media. You have no one to fault for your ineptness, but yourself.

    What made her drag her 17 year old pregnant daughter up on stage in front of millions of people along with her babies high school dropout father. I can't imagine doing something like that to one of my daughters. She really needs to stay in Alaska, make moose stew and with the mama grizzley coming out in her take care her cubs. She is a real joke and has no place in any politics. I'm just damn glad she is a republican.

  43. k_michael (Clodine, TX)

    During the election, I had researched Sarah Palin as thoroughly as was possible; I found nothing then, and have heard nothing since, that makes me interested in what she has to say. There are Republicans who are far more intelligent, far more knowledgeable, far more coherent and consistent, and have far better actual in-depth practical ideas, than does this media-created celebrity whose main appeal has been to those most susceptible to prejudice, superficial knowledge, and fear. Her main value has been to expose the difference between fiscal conservatives who wish to minimize government, and pseudo-conservative social reactionaries who wish to spend taxpayer money to apply their personal religion to the policing of people's private lives and to the restriction of individual liberties. So, no, there really is nothing I personally wish to ask her. In contrast, I *would* be interested in asking several questions of Aaron Schock and Bobby Jindal. I find it irritating that Palin is allowed to eclipse them, and other such interesting and intelligent poeple.

    Gov. Palin was outraged by the media and in part with her own party campaign. My question to Gov. Palin is: When you accepted the nomination for VP on the McCain ticket, did you ever watch or read about confirmation hearings for a national candidate? Did you think the nation and the world didn't want to know about your background. Everything, good, bad and ugly.

    I would like to ask Palin to go away-stop her talking get a life - she has no ideas -no help with what is going on- she is complaining about how she was treated --enough already. People are killing themselfs - loseing there homes- loseing there jobs –what is wrong with that self rigthous nut case. How can she say anything about Carline Kennedy - come up with some help for people who are suffering, or just go away.She is the one who couldn't answer questions –she needs to live with what she has done -she is not someone to look up to. Bringing her dauther out and her daugther boyfriend out and making a mockery of her family . She needs to take responsibilty for herself, not blame the reporters and Tina Fay. Go away !Palin just go away.! What you think happened to you is about as far away from what is happening as you can get.

    Where do you get your nerve? You insulted people who work to make their communities better. You said some of the nastiest and most divisive things on the campaign trail I have heard in a long time. You called others "elitist" while you spent $150,000 dressing you and your family. You owe the American people a big apology, not the other way around.

    By the way. When are you going to explain why the arrest of your daughter's mother in-law for selling drugs was held up until after the election?

    Jack–
    This is hard one for me. I'd like to ask her a lot of questions. Her rant yesterday told more about her than she would like. I guess I would ask her to name one problem in her life that she is willing to take personal accountability for and what she would do to make that situation better or right. She certainly seems to blame anybody and everybody else for anything that goes wrong for her or her family. I'd like to hear her admit responsibility for something–actually anything.
    And then be a little humble about being a human who makes mistakes.

    The only thing I would ask her is why she won't go away? I would, however, thank her for all she did to help Obama get elected

  93. HD Taylor - Arizona

    I'd ask her what her problem is regarding the media and the scrutiny she received during the 2008 Presidential campaign. She's just another hypocrite like Ann Coulter who somehow thinks that they are conservative and is somehow above the very same scrutiny and attacks that they personally throw at Democrats and liberals. The self righteousness of people like this is disgusting as they have no problem accusing liberals of playing the victim while they themselves play the victim and do all the very things they condemn. These are both the kind of people who have no problem with the swift boating the integrity of their opponents and other shady tactics only as long as they are the ones who are doing it. They both need to grow up and get a life.

    Why wont you just go away? No one cares to hear you blame the media coverage, or your class, or gender bias, or your party affiliation for why your ticket and specifically you didn't win the election. Most Americans are more intelligent than casting their valuable votes on media coverage or wedge issues. Why can't you just face it that slightly more Americans preferred a different approach to governing that what your ticket was offering?

    Dear Mrs Palin, would you please go away? You are an embarrassment to yourself and the great state of Alaska. You should be the poster child for the declining standards of our education system and the ignorance and arrogance of the greatest oxymoron, the Christian Right.

    January 9, 2009 at 3:06 pm |

    Oh my God yes Jack. Since you're way too chicken to ask her yourself, I would give anything to risk my life and reputation to utilize my innate capacity as Cupid to ask her, "Governor Palin, ma'am, could you see yourself riding off into the Aleutian sunset on the back of 'Yukon Jack' Cafferty's snow machine?" If she said yes, I would expect the exclusive rights to all the photos and videos so I could sell them to TMZ and YouTube...we're talking millions of hits here.

    why are you still in the political spolight after costing mccan the election?..if you have a beef with the media, say it to their face instead being pussycat..why you are hating on tina fey? oh yeah, she made fun of you really good...picking on keith olbermann isn't going to do good on you because he picks everybody and he will probably make it on his worst person lists everynight until you shut up..know you facts about any political figure and know your history before you shoot off your mouth...sara palin is just like george bush-too polarizing official..as long you stay out of the spolight, everybody will forget you..

  110. Amy from WI

    I would ask Gov. Palin why she had so much difficulty answering simple questions that were posed to her, and would also like to ask how rebel rousing a crowd against Pres. Elect Obama (to the point of threats from the crowd) on mere associations follows the conservative "stance" of ethics and values.

    January 9, 2009 at 3:14 pm |
  111. Julie in Topeka

    Yes.Ms. Palin, why do you insist on blaming sexism,class distinction or wrong political affiliation for all your problems? To paraphrase her own words"Sarah,you're not the center of the universe."Just go away already.

  113. Willow, Iowa

    I would ask Sarah Palin why she believes that she can be the moral spokesperson for the entire country, why only the people that believe the same as her have value. Of course, radical Fundamentalists of any ilk believe that they are the person who knows right from wrong and should decide what is good and bad.

    I went to a Catholic Church once that had a wonderful, moral, good Priest. and I remember that he would say "be wary of anyone who says that they alone know the truth."

  115. paulette b

    Mr. Cafferty,

    My question would really be a request. " Ms. Palin, please stay quiet until you learn to speak correct English; drop the also's and too's and broken sentences. Than AFTER you can speak correct English, you still cannot speak until you can do so with intelligence and coherence." Mr. Caffery it would really be great if you would interview Ms. Palin!!!

  117. Chris, New York City

    Sarah, what do you think the answer is, to the financial crisis we are now in? Do you agree w/ the President elect, in his notion that as of now only goverment can help? I doubt she can answer any of these w/ authority or clarity. Also, do you pal around w/ drug dealers?

    Not a thing. She's clueless in Alaska.

    January 9, 2009 at 3:21 pm |
  119. Lissa in Montreal

    I would ask her why she continues to speak out defensively. She seems to be on the news every other day, STILL defending her "media made image" when she is the one who fell short, via inept handling of interviews and woefully uninformed comments. No one told her that Russia's proximity to Alaska makes for foreign policy expertise, SHE said it. More than once. So I'd want to know, why does she continue to protest when everyone else has moved on? What is her ulterior motive here?

    January 9, 2009 at 3:21 pm |
  120. Susan/Bel Air, MD

    Here's what I'd ask her: When are you going to stop blaming everyone else (McCain's staff, the media, Katie Couric, Tina Fey, the Democrats, Caroline Kennedy, Jack Cafferty) for your own lack of preparedness in running for the second highest job in the land? Was it just ego? Didn't you feel like you were living that nightmare everyone has occasionally about finding out you had a final exam but you hadn't been to class all semester? And finally, when are you going to shut up?

    January 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm |
  121. sheila Scott

    I would like to ask her why in the world would she say that the media treated her any differently from Barack Obama? I personally thinks that she was treated as she should have been. Mrs. Palin was treated like a vice presidental canadiate that arrived on the campaign trail with little or nothing known about her and the media cover her every move which they should have done to satisfy the carvings of the American public. What is puzziling is that Mrs Palin seemed to enjoy the coverage up until the time of the Curic interview in which she showed us all that she was and is still not up to the task of running for the office of the vice president or the office of the president. If I could nt answer the simply questons that was posed to her how in the world would the American people trust her to run the country!!!! Mr. Palin now states that she reads all kinds of publication and tthe USA Today and the New York Times but I am still do not believe her. She is mad at the papers for stating a fact the her daugther Bristol and her boyfriend dropped out of school. While they may be taking courses online to complete their high school courses they are still high school dropouts and that is that. Don't blame everyone but yourself for what happened to you on the campaign trail the failure is on your shoulders and you should stop complaining about John McCain because if it were not for him we would never had known you and personally we would all had been better off!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good Bye forever

    Why are you comparing yourself as a former vice-presidential candidate (second in command of the entire country) to the scutiny ,or lack thereof, to a potential Senatorial Position of a single state? Normally, one is a stepping stone to another.

    January 9, 2009 at 3:27 pm |
  123. Michelle Long Beach, Ca

    Sarah,
    Have you ever read anything that Thomas Jefferson wrote? George Washington? Sam Adams? Thomas Jefferson based our once great nation on Separation of Church and State. George Washington wrote a letter stating "We are not a Christian nation". How dare you call some of us less American? When I can actually tell you what's in the constitution and why it's in there. I could sit through a Katie Couric interview. I guess to be more American I have to own a gun, leave the G's off the end of my words and wear sweaters with American Flags to church.

    January 9, 2009 at 3:32 pm |
  124. Terry in Hanover County

    I'd ask Sarah Palin if she understands the concept of the less said the better? Every time she opens her mouth she proves how uninformed she is. Ms. Palin should spend less time stroking her own ego and more time doing her current job as governor. She looks foolish because she is foolish and she makes the GOP look like a bunch of ignorant whiners. Perhaps, instead of giving interviews, she should kick back and read a good book. I highly recommend either "In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights in Action," co-written by Caroline Kennedy, or "It's Getting Ugly Out There," by that Dude that hangs with the Wolf Man, Jack.

    Nothing , she is not worthy of any questions from anyone in the

    Katie and Saturday Night exposed what an idiot she is.
    When she speaks of class and her family it portrays her inadequate
    and very unsecure.
    Lets hope we don' t hear from her again as she is not qualified
    for her present job. Stop keeping her in the News . She is a
    LOOSER!!!!!

    I would like to ask Palin what would it take for her to just go away. I just never want to hear her voice again. She irritates me to no end as I find her to be the most shallow person to hit the news in years. She is so clueless that she does not realize how clueless she is.

    If she thinks the mainstream media is her friend? For that matter if they are anyones friend? If she realizes they are not her friend, then maybe she would stop knocking them so much. The mainstream media runs with the good and bad information and if you do not what them to, then don't put yourself in the spotlight. You are fair game when you do that. She is old enough to know this and plus, she has a jouralism degree.

    What was the press supposed to ask you? Your name, rank, and serial number, you was running for the 2nd highest job in this country we had a right to know something about you other than lip stick on pit bulls. Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric did this nation a favor by exposing you.

    No. I wouldn't turn and ask her anything if she were sitting right next to me. A dummy like that isn't worth a second of my personal time. She doesn't GET IT, has never GOTTEN IT, and will NEVER get it. Just another dummy. She's probably perfectly suited for elective office.

    what would i ask sarah palin,thats a tough one because i don't believe she can answer a question intelligently,she just isn't qualified for any elective office

    January 9, 2009 at 4:20 pm |
  188. Eileen Peabody MA

    Yes Jack. I would ask Gov. Palin how she likes being a Grandma.

    I would ask her this question because after the recent remarks she made regarding the media, the mishandling by the McCain campaign, and how things could have been different if she had run with Barack Obama she certainly has given up her chances of running for any political office in the future!!!!

    If the Republican Party touts her in any way you would really have to question what the heck they are doing.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    Nothing.

    On the other hand, I’d like to TELL her something: “Shut up, stop whining that it is everyone else’s fault but your own, and go back to doing the job you actually were elected to do.”

    What I’d like to ask is a question to you and to CNN, Jack, not her. WHY DO YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT HER? There are certainly a large number of topics much more relevant that Palin to discuss!

    Governor Palin – With only a degree in Journalism and absolutely no national or foreign experience, what makes you feel you are qualified to run for the presidency? Many Americans saw you as the former mayor of a very small town and governor of a state removed from the main stream of American life plus a candidate without background, knowledge or understanding of national government and, with your interviews, a woman of limited intellect and a very sharp tongue. You never get a second chance for a first impression.

    I'd like to know if Sarah Palin thinks that by whining constantly about articles written about her or how she was or thinks she was treated makes her sound more mature... Not likely, just the opposite is true.. What does she think it would have been like if she had become VP..can you imagine the interviews then and what would have happened if she had constantly whined and blamed the media for everything....
    Once again she shows that she is no where ready to be in Washington......

    Jack: I would not ask her anything, because I do not want to hear her folksy accent. Palin does not know anything I would like to know. Her brain is like a big open space with nothing in it. No, not like Alaska, maybe the Mohave Desert.

  197. Donna Colorado Springs,Co

    I would ask Mrs. Palin just exactly why she thought she could be the veep for the republican party when she had NO EXPERIENCE with the exception of being mayor and now governor of a very small state. She has no world experience or common sense for that matter. She assumes that a smile and a wink would put her in good with the voters and now she's lashing out at the press because she lost. I would tell her to narrow her goals to take over the world to Alaska.

    When George W Bush was elected he occasionally talked about how often he "listened" to the voice of God.

    Not being facetious. Really.
    I have been a Christian all my life and God has NEVER spoken directly to me. I'de like to know how you go about it.

  202. Julie - Elizabethtown, Kentucky

    Sarah, do you ever talk about, have opinions about, or have any concerns or valuable input to offer your state or your country about important issues such as the economy? I was just wondering because you seem to be extremely interested and concerned only with yourself more than anything else. The American people have an economic crisis on their hands. We don't have time to raise your self-esteem and make you feel better about yourself.

    January 9, 2009 at 4:35 pm |
  203. Linda in Bisbee, AZ

    Yes, what is it with her and her ruthless persecution of endangered and threatened wildlife in her state? She has made it legal to trophy hunt endangered polar bears from the air, along with wolves, which she has put a bounty on. She is trying to remove protection for endangered whales. She is a murderous killer, and I would like to see a bear eat her effing head, preferably a polar bear, but any bear will do. She has so many Grizzly rugs and wall hangings, she and her backward bunch of relatives could go in the business. I want to see her return to powerless obscurity, and her political career ended for good.

    I'd like her to answer Charlie Gibson's question about the Bush Doctrine. After all that coaching she got from the neocons on John McCain's campaign, she should be able to answer the question, now.

  205. Buster in Poughkeepsie, NY

    Oh my God yes Jack. Since you’re way too chicken to ask her yourself, I would give anything to risk my life and reputation to utilize my innate capacity as Cupid to ask her, “Governor Palin, ma’am, could you see yourself riding off into the Aleutian sunset on the back of ‘Yukon Jack’ Cafferty’s snow machine?” If she said yes, I would expect the exclusive rights to all the photos and videos so I could sell them to TMZ and YouTube…we’re talking millions of hits here.

  209. Jerry - Toronto, Canada

    No. There are more intelligent people out there (like you Jack) I'd rather ask a question of. She couldn't even name a magazine she read, how is she going to answer anything difficult. If I want hunting tips, I'll ask Dick Cheney...oh, right forget that...I just look online.

    Governor Palin: Has there ever been any bad thing that has ever happened to you, any bad thing at all, that has not been someone else's fault? (ie: not the fault of the Liberal Media, Alaska State Troopers, Katie Couric, a wayward moose, Tina Fey, caribou loving environmentalists, GOP charge accounts, John McCain's staff, etc.)

    Yeah... What the heck were you thinking when you said yes to running as McCain's vice presidential running mate? Did you really think you were qualified to be a heartbeat away from the becoming the leader of the free world? Unfortunately, she'd probably just answer "you betcha!" And to me there's more scary than an ambitious politician who doesn't have the brains to know what he or she doesn't know.

  224. Paula in Albuquerque

    Nothing. However, I would advise her to "consider the source:, when people have unking things to say about her! She has to remember that most of her critics are "old maids", both male and female...sitting at their keyboards, with a gin bottle in one hand...and a mirror in the other! They have no other life than envying and hating...and disparaging those they can never be...for fun and profit! I saw a parody of her, which was shown on the TV show, "The View". After the stupid excerpt with a Sarah Palin look-alike...the hosts of "The View"...a table full of ugly women...laughed and guffawed..like the inrinsic "zeros" that they all are! It made Palin emotional, and I almost felt as badly as she. But, Palin's detractors, being Americans, are quick to HATE...quick to disparage...and have an instinctive affinity for destroying the happiness of people of achievement. These idiots hate her "freshness"...her slim hips...her pretty face...and, the fact that someone loves Sarah, and they cannot say the same! Most of them are lonely and abandoned, with othing else to do except to "Keep Hate Alive", through ridicule and meanness...

    I'd ask Sarah Palin how she was able to take the high road during (and even after the campaign) when the corrupt, agenda ridden liberal media went out of their way to attack her family. The network (AND cable news) is nothing but pure entertainment TV. Journalism as we once knew it is LONG, LONG gone. Pathetic state of affairs.

  234. Bryan Price in Jacksonville, Florida

    I would ask Mrs. Palin exactly what she expected to happen when she accepted the invitation to run as Vice President? Did she just assume that everything would go her way with nothing negative? Surely as governor of Alaska there have been editorial cartoons that have made fun of her. Why is she acting so thin skinned now about how she was treated when she was running? Has the experience tempered your desire and expectations of running for President in 2012?

During the election Hilary did not go around crying like a spoiled child. Don't you think that if you can't take the heat in the kitchen you should get out and ask the media to quit covering everything and anything about you? If you can't do politics like Hilary or any other politicans, then why are you still conplainting? Could you please quit complaining? Enough isd enough of you.

    My question is: When this special child of yours grows up, are you in favor of his entering the military and going to war? In other words, was this child brought into the world with the prospect of being sent into harm's way?

    Governor Palin, I agree that the media has given you a pretty rough time. But if you replay all of that negative spinning, you'll see that almost every single incident was precipitated by your own lack of adequate information.

    Will you please sew your lips shut so i dont have to hear your voice. If you, ms palin can name the last 10 vp candidates that DID NOT WIN the general election, you can take out the stiches and talk again. But u are stupid and we dont want to hear you speak, you were the losing vp candidnate. people cant remember the PRESIDENTS! let alone the losing candidate, the losing vp? go away already.

    (sigh)

    Jack, just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water...... If Palin thinks she's been exploited why does she keep putting her face in front of a camera? I'm tired of her.

    A little research by CNN would reveal that weeks after she won the governor's race she paid $30,000 to a PR person to "raise her national profile"! She's always had her sights on bigger things, ala HRC. Thank God that didn't work out so well for her. Can you imagine her and McCain trying to deal with this economy?

    I just hope the good folks of Alaska didn't pay for her publicist. (Wink, wink).

    Sarah, would you please Shut The Hell Up?

    January 9, 2009 at 5:30 pm |
  277. janette

    Why do you feel the need to keep your face in the media?
    You had your chance with McCain-you lost so get back to
    your job as governor instead of campaigning .It's over and
    the people have spoken.So please ddevote yourself to being
    the best gov. you can be and accept the defeat and stop playing
    the VICTIM.

    Yes, Sarah, there is a class issue regarding you and Caroline Kennedy–
    she has some and you don't.

    January 9, 2009 at 5:35 pm |
  279. Angela Tacoma Washington

    I would ask, why does she Sara think that she is on the same level, as Caroline Kennedy? Of Course the media will treat them differently, one is educated the other is not, a wink is not considered rocket science...

    January 9, 2009 at 5:36 pm |

    "Governor Palin?"

    "Who said that? Oh, the gray hair in the front row. Yes?"

    "What part of 'You lost!' are you not understanding?"

    *insert sputtering noises*
    "In the hearts and minds of real Americans in the real America I really won! They like me! They really, really like me! I'm just like them, you betcha! I can field dress a moose! I read every newspaper, front to back, including the ads! I can see Russia from my house! I believe in family values ... okay, none of the rest of my family does, but I do! God loves me! He hates liberals but he loves me! You haven't seen the last of me ... God wants me to run in 2012!"

    *Palin looks around, finally noticing that she has completely cleared the room*

    In a word, Jack: Nothing. I would ask Sarah Palin nothing. Now, can we please not discuss her anymore? That would be very nice.

    January 9, 2009 at 5:39 pm |
  282. C. J. Sculley from Bethlehem, Pa

    Jack, Where to start? I'd like to ask her if she really thinks that the 'MEDIA" is the reason that she and John "Bomb Iran" McCain lost the election. I'd also ask her if she has ever watched any of the many infamous clips of herself that she complains about. #1 What newspapers do you read? answer " Anything they put in front of me" Are you kidding? #2 What foreign policy qualifications do you have" answer: "There are parts of Alaska that you can see Russia from. And Alaska is between Canada and Russia" Or how about this, Have your $ 150,00 Hockey Mom outfits been given to charity yet, or are you still trying to find some needy people to donate them to? I'm sure if she tries hard enough she can find someone to give them to. And finally a comment ; If her daughter's future Mother-in Law is a drug dealer dos'nt that mean she hangs out with druggies

    January 9, 2009 at 5:39 pm |
  283. Paul Round Rock, Texas

    Jack, You Betcha I would. I would ask her what duzya think makes you keep gettin in the News and all that and thinkin you can run for President in 2012 and get those good ole guys in Washington in line?
    We had 8 years of a good ole guy and his guys and he kinda talked like you ya know? Happy Firday Jack.

  285. Chuck from Sheboygan, WI.

    I'd like to ask her face to face if she honestly thought she was qualified to be the vice-president of the United States. It would be fascinating to see that kind of self-delusion up close, but I'm sure the fractured English of her attempted answer would be painful as well.

    January 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm |
  286. Norman Hoffman

    Jack,

    Sarah Palin just doesn't get it. The election is over and she lost. It's time to move forward in a positive direction. If she was a worthwhile candidate she would understand that. Instead, she presents herself as the whiny wimpering witch of Wasila. Ms Palin, if you're not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

  288. Steve

    All throughout her campaign, she was bad-mouthing – in a VERY sarcastic manner – nearly everything she could against her opponents. It felt very much to me like bad manners and had nothing to do with politics except to win an election. There was nothing about what she and McCain wanted for the US. Now it’s all whining about poor poor me. I was one a Republican and I now cringe whenever I hear her voice. She is the poster child for the Republicans I will never be one of again. Shut up and go away!

  289. Randall Richards

    Jack,
    I thought Grizzly Bears hibernated when it gets really cold. Maybe it's not cold enough in Alaska yet. I think it was about -50 this morning. How cold will it have to get before Palin hibernates and forgets about being anything more than what she presently is. She is a fine example of the Peter Principle: She has risen to her level of incompetence and will disappear from the political landscape very soon. Good ridance!

  290. Rod, Council Grove,Kansas

    Dear SARA I wondered if you think should have hired a Kennedy publicist and then maybe you would have been busy on January 20th in Washington rather than seeking the same ol media attention in Alaska

  291. Krishna Koliwad

    Jack,

    I will ask her to snap out of the delusion of being a presidential material and go get a life! And to John McCaine I will ask him to take lessons about the required qualifications to be a vice-president/president.

    I have nothing to ask of Sarah..but I would like to ask Wolf and others who repeatedly say Sarah has a "high approval rating up in Alaska" to get real and knock it off. I would like to remind you idiots the total population of Alaska is about the same as Fresno County (not that many).

    January 9, 2009 at 5:53 pm |

    I'd also ask if she thinks her hate speeches were in direct conflict with her supposed Christian beliefs. Having had a strong religious upbringing, I found her hate frighteningly disturbing on every level.

    I would ask Sarah Palin to Please Please Please get over herself and 'Move-On'.

    After all the rest of the country already moved on.

    Besides, Part of the reason why McCain lost was due largely to Palin, so the finger of blame should be placed on her.

  302. Erik Weidenbach in Marburg

    I'm a teenager, I've got a few questions. Who was Vitus Bering and what country did he come from? What US Secretary of State negotiated the purchase of Alaska in 1867, but why did Alaska not gain territorial status until 1912? When and why did Juneau become capital of the territory and when did Alaska become a US State? Why do 1.5% of the population in Alaska speak Tagalog (Filipino)? Alaska has been identified as being the least religious of the States; only 39% are members of religious congregations and many are non-Christians (Jews, Muslims, Hindus, etc). The First Amendment to the US Constitution refers to the separation of church and state, as a state figure, why did you preach your personal religion? Why is wind & hydro-electric power (abundant) underutilized? And does one really have to kill seals for their oil to make akutag? Please answer quickly, my paper is due in school on Tuesday.

    I would ask her if the 3,500 sq. ft., multi-storied house she lives in, which her husband Todd claims that he and three friends built in their spare time, was paid for and built by the company that built the Wasilla Sports Complex three miles from her house. This is the same construction company that got Senator Ted Stevens in trouble.

    Palin is nothing but an air-head. Her future in national politics is dim as it is for the bulk of the repbulican party. The question I would ask Palin would be, "Who does your hair?"

    January 9, 2009 at 6:10 pm |
  334. james tilton

    Jack,
    As a lifelong Alaskan I would ask her to shut up and go away! If she can't take the heat get the heck out of the kitchen....she should get no more special treatment than anyone else. The more we learn about her Diva-ness the less we care about what she has to say.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:10 pm |
  335. Wendy in NC

    Yes! I'd like to ask her why she won't SHUT UP and go down to Juneau and do her work, instead of sitting in Wasilla collecting per diem and whining to the media about the media? What a complete narcissistic trainwreck this woman is!

    Why blame others. If you knew what you were talking about, those interviews with Couric would have gone better. And if you weren't giving out so much material, no one would have made fun of you. But with your mean spirited politics, you asked for it.

    Why does CNN keep talking about Sarah Palin? Stop posting stories about her, please. You just keep feeding her. Stop it. Stop giving her air time, stop giving her web space, stop giving her credibility. She is NOT NEWS. Get Palin out of the news, for the love of all things good.

  381. Brian Torwelle

    If you are so upset with Tina Fey, why on earth would you appear with her on Saturday Night Live? Maybe you're making these comments now because you haven't been mentioned in the news lately. Face it, Sarah, you were not remotely qualified to be VP. You were a joke and the McCain used you to appease his conservative base. Your 15 minutes are up! Get over it!

    Hi Jack,

    I'd love to ask Sarah Palin "When will you give us and the media a break and get out of politics for good?"

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  384. John

    I'd like to ask Ms. Palin whether or not the long Alaskan winters are caused by Putin rearing his head and comes into the airspace of the United States, thereby blocking the sun?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  385. Marissa

    After watching Gov. Palin raise the roof on SNL and Wolf Blitzer sway on "Ellen," I wonder she would consider joining him as a team on Dancing with the Stars? That would certainly land her a win!

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  386. Paul in Nevada

    Or better yet ... my question for the Governor should really be, "If you knew what you knew now about the process of running for national office, would you still stay yes to Sen. McCain without blinking or hesitating?"

    So, Sarah P. believes that the press would have treated her better if she had been a Democrat.

    Well, how would the regular Republican Attack Machine have treated her and her family, then? Think about it, Sarah!

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  394. Keri

    I would ask her to go away. She did SNL and made a complete fool of herself, she did the Katie Couric interviews and made a fool of herself.

  395. Happy in Arizona

    Sarah Palin, when are you going to grow up. I won't vote for you because I only vote for those people who are intelligent, who do their job, and care about the American people. Another reason why I didn't vote for you or John McCain and I have been Republican all my life. Give up already and move on. Oh, and if you decide to run in 2012, I guess I will definitely have to turn Democrat.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  396. Susan

    I'd like to ask her if she'd like a little cheese with that whine ... Honestly, the media, including Katie Couric didn't make Gov. Palin look dumb. She did that all by herself, and if she wanted to be in the public eye, she should have realized that it would leave her open to taking potshots from anyone who wanted to step up to the plate.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  397. Brian Griswold

    I would only ask her, very quietly: what would it take to get you to go away?

  408. Sage from Maryland

    How could you be so naive as to think that the prank call made to you right before the election was actually from Nicholas Sarkozy. Also, don't you think the News Media was very kind in not airing this very embarrassing telephone call which has been viewed on YouTube by millions? Had the news media aired this telephone call as much as they should have, John McCain's loss would have been by a much wider margin.

    Ms. Palin, in retrospect, don't you think the news media went relatively easy on you in light of your limited knowledge of National and World events?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  409. Vikrant

    My question to Sarah Palin:
    When will you shut up and go away? Anything that you say now doesnt matter (not that it mattered before). The Election's Over, so suck it up.

    Can you really think that you answered all those interview questions well during the campaign? Your were treated as unqualified by the media because you WERE unqualified for the job. Imagine that...the media doing their job for once.

    Josh

    January 9, 2009 at 6:11 pm |
  413. Deborah Miller

    Absolutely not! Perhaps she will stop talking if we stop asking questions. If she ever expects to run for national office again, she should just go away for a while. She obviously has never heard the saying, "How can we miss you when you won't go away!" If I never again hear her rambling, run on sentences that go nowhere, it will be too soon.

    I would ask Sarah Palin when she finds time to govern Alaska? Seems to me she spends all her time recently whining. If she wants people to respect her she should do her job and show people she is competant. Respect must be earned.

    Palin are you sure you are not on anything too strong for your brain. You keep coming back and blaming everyone but yourself, that is the problem with your household. Bristol blames everyone for getting pregnant except herself. Goodluck Grandma, you might need it.

  429. Jackson from Elizabethton, TN

    I would ask her if she really thinks trying to play the victim will help her chances in 2012. Does she not realize that John McCain alienated the press and paid the price, and that the same thing could very likely happen to her? Is the Republican party, who has taken a beating in public opinion, is going to band around someone who is branding herself a sore loser? Her answer; 'You 'betcha!'

    Jack:

    I'd like to ask Sarah Palin NOT to embarrass Republicans AGAIN and NOT run for any national office. Now that Bush is about to return home to Texas, maybe Republicans can repair their image.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  436. Mark

    Unless I'm mistaken – which I'm not – Sarah Palin actually did address the issue of what periodicals she reads in that interview. In fact she listed a fair number of them.

    But then saying that would have ruined your clincher.

    I feel sorry for you, destroying all your and Wolf's credibility by rattling off talking points that directly and obviously contradict facts.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |

    Jack,

    I would ask Governor Palin how she stayed so strong during the campaign. She had alot of negative publicity from the no talent staff at SNL, and even Katie Couric attempted to derail her spirit.
    Keep the focus Sarah, you the shizzy

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |

    I would like to ask Gov. Palin why she insists on mocking things about which she knows absolutely nothing! Examples are 1) fruit fly research where most developmental disorders were first seen; and 2) community organizers who teach disenfranchised people to work within the system for the benefit of their communities. Her ignorance is appalling! How about this: GOP ticket with Dan Quayle and Sarah Palin. As a Democrat, I really like that idea!!

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  443. Susan from Canada

    Hi Jack. I'd like to ask Sarah Palin if there's anything she IS responsible for. This woman needs to GO AWAY. She has her head buried in the sand if she thinks Americans didn't vote for her because of the media, Tina Fey, Katie Couric or John McCain. They didn't vote for her because she didn't understand the issues and wasn't able to communicate with them. Period.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  444. hebelman

    I would like asked her whether she is capable to 1) a straight answer to a straight question without waffling and 2) whether she is aware how disparaging, insulting and belittling she has been on the campaign trail. Sarah: any honest self assessment?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  445. Zachary

    I am a Republican supporter who did not vote for McCain in the most recent election because he selected Sarah Palin as his running mate. My question is: "When are you going to go away?" I sincerely hope that she is not the Republican Party's answer to a need for change.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  452. Kimberly Miller

    Why did it take you six years and and undetermined number of schools (was it 5 or 6 or 7??) to graduate from college? I never saw it addressed during the campaign. Perhaps these early choices contribute to her image of lacking intellectual curiousity – and a fear by many of a George II in the White House.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  453. Mike - Phoenix AZ

    Hey Sarah – answer this fluff question – what do you and Gov. of Ill. have in common? If you need help you can use a life line. Tick Tock, Tick Tock, Tick Tock.....time is wasting.

    Jack,

    Sarah Palin is a VERY accomplished person and was put in a VERY difficult situation. She would've been treated different if she was on the Democratic side by the media.
    If I had to ask her a question, it would be how she put up with all this mess that went against her in the campaign.

    Are there no concerns in Alaska for you to take care of? Why do you insist on insinuating yourself on a public, few of which are interested in what you're doing.
    Have you read any books lately?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  463. Mary

    Yes, I would like to ask why she didn't come out swinging against the liberal media a long time ago. I have personally quit watching most of the liberal networks and would never consider turning on good old Katy again. Katy wanted nothing but to assinate the character, honesty, diligence and genuine aspect of Governor Sarah Palin. For those who say go back to Alaska, I agree and we should take our oil with us.

  464. Charlie Harold

    Seriously, does being pretty, loving capitalism, hating the government, thinking you're "plain ol' folk," enjoying shooting animals, holding ultrafundamentalist religious views, not reading good books, and building strawmen every time you are on TV make you think you think you are qualified to be VP?

    I think the more suitable question would be "Gov. Palin, CAN you read a newspaper?" After all, "don't shoot the messenger"- I'm fairly certain most of her incompetent remarks in most of those weren't the media's fault. Nice try though, with this blame game.

    Jack, I'd like to ask Sarah Palin this question:

    Why do your and "your office" see that your name is in the news every day, and you've done nothing to warrant it? AND, why don't you just shut up and go away. I'm sick of your pictures, sound bites, and most of all your nasal voice.

    Bye bye (I hope).

  488. Jeff from Las Vegas

    I have a very serious question for Governor Palin. Why did she even accept the nomination for Vice President? Is she that selfish? Why didn't she have audacity to admit that she's not qualified, and does not have the knowledge or experience for the job, and that someone else would have been a much been candidate? Then what's worse, is why isn't she ever at fault for anything? It's always the media and John McCain and the Campaign advisor's fault. What's next? The moose made me say it? Grow up Governor.

    Governor Palin, would you please explain how Alicia Silverstone was chosen over you for the lead role in the movie "Clueless"?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:13 pm |
  490. Joey - Tucson AZ

    Jack,
    what I'd like to as is if you even watched the interview. You said she still couldn't name the papers she reads. She clearly stated that she reads the local paper, USA Today and the NY Times, not that they're worth anything. She was much better qualified than any of the other candidates running.

    When Johnny Carson was stiil around he asked his audience if they had any questions for him...Someone in the audience asked...What time is it? johnny and the whole audience kaughed it up.

    That's about all I would ever ask of Ms. Palin.

  500. Dealt, Lisbon

    A single question for her... "How long does she plan to try to keep in the limelight?" The lady is just too painful to watch, read or even think about. Besides she's a threat to the perception of women's IQ. Obviously she has no shame and no self-restraint so please, please, spare us the woman.

  507. Barb

    I would like to ask Mrs. Palin why she accepted the nomination in the first place. If she truly were putting the country first, she would have acknowledged that she was not yet ready for the vice-president position and graciously declined until she could properly prepare herself. She put herself out there, so whatever she got she deserved.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:13 pm |
  508. Bill

    Governor Palin, I was a lot happier when I had never seen nor heard of you.
    I don't mean any disrespect, but quite frankly, the election is over, you didn't win – please go do something else.

    From what I've seen, you don't do anything that's of advantage, and quite frankly, you seem to have done quite a few things that I object to.

    Although I wasn't expecting to see other similar remarks like mine, please go back to your past life and enjoy it. Enough is enough.

    Question to Sarah:
    Why does she put up withthe AH's in the media.
    I onlywish that the saying... "ignore them and they'll go away".
    There is nothing worse than an idiot the thinks he isn't ... (for those that don't undertand) I am referringt o the left-wingless media.

    my questions would be rather male contrived and childish.....other than that, I'd ask her if she looks in the mirror and says "thank god I'm good looking"! ....if it werent for them looks, she'd be flipping burgers or skinning deer..............

    I would ask Sarah a couple of things. Why do you keep making yourself look ignorant by giving interviews and do you think that if Obama"s daughter had gotten knocked up without a husband, he would be the President elect today?
    To quote another vice presidentual candidate, "you are no Caroline Kennedy!".

    My question isn't for her, it's for all the news media; why not just ignor her, and maybe she'll just go away. The only good she for is as a stand up comic taking our mind off the economy

  522. Chika

    Since, "What newspapers do you read?" is a complex question for Gov. Palin, let's try this: what is the distance in nautical miles between her window and Putin's at the Kremlin?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:13 pm |
  523. Beverly Ferris

    I would simply ask her – When are you going back into the annonimity from whenst you came?

    She is the reason I did not vote for McCain. Every time she opens her mouth, she shows us how ignorant and politically inexperienced she is. Remember the Miss America contestant that just rattled on and said nothing? Palin is her political counterpart.

    Why don't you show some class, and go away quietly? By constantly complaining and whinning, like a sore loser, you show your true colors. Maybe that is why you are percived as such a hick.

    I'd like to ask her how she keeps her cool dealing with sexist, biased news people like you. Just listen to your segment on her and you will see a complete demonstration on how you and everyone at CNN never gave her a chance. Another demonstation is that you still have people on your blog talking about the wardrobe and you inferring that she really doesn't know what she reads. How do you keep your job!!!!!!!

  546. Greg Brown

    In all seriousness, and in a spirit of cutting through all of the fakery and pretend concerns, I have the real question for Governor Palin that the world has always wanted answered.

    In fact, this is very likely THE ONLY thing anyone, Democrat or Republican, including McCain himself, has EVER wanted to know from Sarah Palin:

    QUESTION: When are you going to release a VERFIED photograph of your naked breasts?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:14 pm |

  548. Jenna Wade

    Is there anything you’d like to ask Sarah Palin?

    Sarah, you have a son that was offered prison or military service, a teenage daughter that got herself pregnant out of wedlock, and a special needs little guy. It is obvious that 3 out of your 5 children are just begging for your attention and you have failed them.

    So my question to you is: Why do you believe that your children should take a back seat to your political ambitions?

    I'd ask her if there was anything that she would take responsibility for in her failed VP run? She'd probably get away with, "oops, I goofed" but this whining (besides appearing to be flat out ignorant) is just the reason we don't want her in Washington.

    Just one question, Jack. I'm really impressed at how Sarah Palin has managed to avoid responsibility for just about everything that happened in that magic twelve weeks on the campaign trail. I would like her to explain how she did that. Imagine if each of us could simply assign the blame for all our problems on someone else. Then, like Sarah Palin, we could sit back and eat bonbons and wallow in our own self-pity.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:14 pm |
  556. Jeremy Coleman

    I would ask her does she really think a Democrat wit an unwed pregnant daughter would of been treated better. If it were Obamas teenage daughter Republicans would have been saying he's not fit to be President and it's because of Democratic policies that lead to his daughter's pregnancy and that this is the reason for the break down of the American family.

  568. CarolO

    Mrs Palin.....Why is it that you find it necessary to blame every person there is but yourself for your failures? The media always goes where there is a story. Had you not continued to give them one, they would have left you alone but let's face it, you didn't look very smart and look no smarter today for continuing this lame interviews.

    Your chances for 2012 are next to none and you can blame that one on yourself, as well.

  576. Caroline, Delaware

    Has she ever heard of taking responsibility for her own performance and responses during the campaign? Doesn't she realize that political parodies are part of the American culture? Why can't she just shut her mouth and do her job in Alaska? Doesn't she need to keep her eye on Russia so she can alert us if they start to storm our shores?

    If you can't take the heat, stay out of the game. She's an embarrassment to female politicians everywhere.

    To Sarah Palin: Even if by some twist of fate, the majority suddenly falls to your side and sees you as this misrepresented victim – what, if anything, do you hope to accomplish? Take off your flag pins and show some support to our new commander-in-chief if you want us to buy any of this "patriot act".

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  580. Ethan C, Maplewood, New Jersey

    I would ask Gov. Palin the following question:

    "In the campaign for Vice President, you spoke a lot about responsibility. Since losing the election, you seem to be speaking only about blame. Truly successful leaders understand the need to take responsibility for the choices they make. Your willingness to attribute any portion of your failures on Katie Couric or Tina Fey reveals a true lack of perspective. Had you run a better campaign and were you truly suited to the office of the Vice President, you would not have spoken or acted in ways that made you the butt of their joke or the object of ridicule you became. This was solely your doing and but not taking full responsibility for your own shortcomings you send a terrible message to young women and men everywhere."

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  581. Shurn L. Cooper

    Gov. Palin, it is not wise to point fingers at your shortcomings. Stop playing the victim and resolve situations with action. Number one: Reading is fundamental for all individuals. Number two: Explore the rest of the world by indulging in newspapers that offer a wide array of diversified stories. To name a few: US TODAY, NEWSWEEK AND THE WALLSTREET JOURNAL...ETC. I do think this will increase your knowledge and opportunity for advancement.

  584. Carmin Wharton

    Why did you agree to appear on Saturday Night Live if you felt you were being exploited and why did you agree to a SECOND interview with Katie Couric if you knew that the first interview did not go well. Where you willing to sell your soul to be Vice President? You certainly seemed to be willing to sell your family out. There is no way in the world that given the stress surrounding teen pregnancy that I would have paraded my unmarried, obviously pregnant teenage daughter and the child's father across a national stage. This is not an indictment against Bristol Palin or the young man (things happen) but this is an indictment against Sarah Palin as a mother (hockey mother or otherwise).

    Hey Jack, I'd like to ask Ms. Palin when she is going to be quiet already. I'm so sick of listening to this woman complain about her own shortcomings and blaming others for her downfall. When will she realize that she just wasn't qualified to be vice president? Her whining is only perpetuating her poor public image.

    P.S. Can we see some of your dance moves Jack?

    I'd like to ask Gov. Palin when will she take responsibility for her own actions and predicaments instead of forever making excuses and blaming others?

    Sarah, what can we do to make you just take your ignorance and go away?

    Tina Fey exploit her? She must not watch SNL, that's what they do, it's called comedy. Sarah, if you're so worried about Tina Fey, why do the show?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  592. Tony

    Gov Palin; I think everyone want to know if you understood the many complex comments in her press release and when is she going to go away.

  593. Mary Richmond, Kalamazoo, Michigan

    My question to Sarah Palin is if you had such an issue with Tina Fey and her skits why on earth did you ever go on SNL in the first place? Or does she have aspirations of getting into comedy? She certainly provided enough material for all comedians to work with.

    I'd like to ask Sarah Palin "What will it take for you to go away?"

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  595. Kevin

    Did you think running for vice president was going to be easy? Did you spend too much time working on answers to the hard questions? Are you still planning on running in 2010? PLEASE DON'T!!!!

    I would like to know if she objects to sex education for teenagers now that her daughter is an unwed teen and the father of the child is an unemployed high school drop out.

    I would like to ask her simply: what question specificaly should the media not have asked her?

    Yes, I'd like to ask Governor Palin to please sit down. Your 15 minutes are up.

    Ask Sarah that if she decides to run for President instead of vice-president will she have to change her Alaska citizenship for US citizenship?

  602. isabella

    I think her chance is as good as getting a glass of water in hell. Can someone make her just go away, take care of her children and plan her daughter's wedding...opps did she get married yet?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  603. Tracy

    If I had the chance to ask her a question it would be "When will you stop whining about the media picking on you and drift into the news graveyard until next election cycle?" I am sure tired of hearing about how she was not treated fairly. She made her own mistakes and now it is to own up to them and go away.

    January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm |
  604. Stephanie Anderson, MSM

    I would ask Sarah Palin, if she felt that she would have received the same soft treatment of her campaign considering her many "issues" if she were an African American candidate.

    i.e. pregnant teenaged daughter; investigaton of ethical issues and possible corruption, husband who proported to be a separitist at one time, etc, etc, etc.

    Instead of complaining about how badly she was taken advantage of by the media and trying to call out Caroline Kennedy , she should be thanking her lucky stars that they were not as hard as they should have been.

  605. Rick Rosenthal

    1) Whether anyone who did business with the town of Wasilla provided services or materials for use in the building of her house?

    2) Whether she knows the difference between the bailout and the stimulus package? (From her post-election interview with Wolf Blitzer it is evident that she thinks that they are the same thing).

    3) Is the state of Alaska asking for any federal bailout money and if so for what purpose?

    Lady Wisdom has built and furnished her home; leave your impoverished confusion confusion and live. Clearly this Governor just can't practice what she preaches. (She should take another look, an intense look at Proverbs.) Oh yeah, that's right, she does not read often.

    Jack,

    While I would love to rail her with rational questions to expose her ignorance and close mindedness; I believe that has already been done by Katie Courac.

    So on this one, I would like to leave the questioning to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson while I sit on my couch, drink my six pack and laugh.

    Do you smell what Obama is cooking?!?!? It's not moose meat!!

  611. Karen in Florida

    Ms. Palin, you have blamed everyone and everything, except yourself, for the loss by the Republicans. People in glass igloos shouldn't throw ice cubes. Besides, you gave your stamp of approval by appearing on Saturday Night Live. Stop whining and start trying to prove to the country exactly how you would change things for the better.

    Does she think that she's treated worse by the press than George Bush? And if not, then why don't we hear him whine as much as her?

    During the campaign, you talked about the "American" parts of the United States. What states would you deem to be less "American" or patriotic than the others?

    you are probably the most incompetent candidate for the vice presidency since Dan Quale. knowing this you took the job anyway. so why ,are you surprised when people poke fun. Saturday night live has always took pot shots at sitting administrations as well as candidates. did you think yourself above the fray? you took a few unfair shots yourself.

    Jack,

    I should like to as Ms. Sweetness and Light just what brand of lipstick she puts on her pigs.

    In all seriousness, her continuing to swing long after the bell only serves to further demonstrate what really dwells beneath her carefully constructed patina.

    Would she consider asking Blagoevich to be her running mate in 2012. They both make the same type of self serving/crybaby comments when things do not go the way they want and would both would be a disaster if they ever would become President/Vice President!

    I would love to know where Sarah Palin gets the gumption she proudly touts to the world. Is it inborn or taught? I can't imagine misstating facts continuously, being told that I'm wrong and not clarifying my answers or admitting I'm wrong. And her capability to blame everyone else other than herself is absolutely AMAZING. No credibility whatever. She lives in her own world; La-La Land. What a dope!

    Here's my question:

    Sarah, isn't there anythin else you could be doin for the people who pay your salary in Alaska?? Like runnin the Governors office, or shootin a Moose, or better yet, brushin up on what words get a "g" at the end of them? Sarah, your bid was unsuccessful...get back to your day job, and spend your "off time" enjoyijng your new Grandchild.

  631. Lori in Virginia

    Now lets see, Sarah Palin does not believe in global warming, birth control or any form of gun control. Her motto is drill baby drill. All that is plenty without the duh factor!!!! She needs to come out of the dark ages and don't ever call me baby!!!! The thoughts of a president that winks at people is truly frightening.

    Jack, I would ask Sarah Palin why she can't admit when she's wrong. It's one thing for a woman to show strength and confidence, but this woman only shows pigheaded stubbornness and lack of intellectual curiosity.

    Sarah Palin, why didn't you reject the offer to run as VP? If someone asked me to run for govenor (or vice-govenor) of a state....i would reject it because i am truthfully........not qualified. It is so obvious when one is not qualified for a position. Why didn't you reject the offer to run as VP??

  638. Keeping it real..

    I would love to ask Palin, What responsiblity does she take herself for losing the election? What could she herself, not the media, not the McCain campaign, not the bloggers, but what could she herself had done differently?

    January 9, 2009 at 6:16 pm |

    How do you think you compare with Hillary Clinton or Caroline Kennedy? Education- No- both are attorneys- you only have a bachelors.

    Role model- No- neither have a unwed teenage mother for a daughter, who is considered a high school drop out- since everyone in all the other 50 states who leaves high school and goes back to get their diploma by night school or correspondence is considered one until they graduate.

    In my opinion- you are trying to compared a sog's ear to a silk purse- and you are not the purse.

    I would ask Sarah Palin, don't you know that most people I meet feel the same way you do. You stood for the right things and the left an the liberals will do what ever it takes to stop the things that made this country great. CNN will only show liberal views to this question on Jack's commnets. I will email you after I write this commnet.

    When will you figure out that the only person interested in you is you? We don't care what you think (if you in fact think), we obviously did not think you qualified to be VP or (God forbid) President – thus, you were not elected. How much clearer does it need to be before you realize that the American people want an educated, caring, unselfish and forward thinking person to lead the nation? And, Sarah - that ain't you! It takes more than a tube of lipstick and an expensive wardrobe to turn a sow's ear into a purse. (I knew you would understand the fashion reference - probably nothing else though!)

  645. Shawn White Scaramento, Ca

    I would ask Gov. Sarah Palin would you elect someone with just a pretty face, without a political background and couldnt carry on a political conversation as the head of State(the highest position in the land?) Then blame others for your statements! If this is true then this country is as shallow as her answers to the questions given by her. Please just go moose hunting, they dont ask questions!
