Sarah Not "Pale-In" Comparison. . .But. . .

October 3, 2008 - Joselyn King
After Thursday night's debate, you have to wonder how Republican vice presidential candidate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is going to handle those "filters of the main stream media" through the election -- and after if she wins.

The pundits talked about her after the debate,and they'll continue to discuss her in the coming days, months and years probably.

She's just going to have to learn to deal with it like a grown up politician.

When I fill out my tax return, I don't change the questions asked on the form. Iinstead of reporting gross income, I don't instead list the price of the dream house I inspire to down the road.

I don't substitute for the question the words, "It's my American dream. I hope to achieve it."

Is it really too much to ask elected leaders in government to answer a few pointed questions and be responsive to a public that pays taxes?

Palin wants to take her message directly to the people. Didn't she do that last week in two interviews? People heard her directly answer the questions. There were no filters.

And her responses became fodder on Saturday Night Live.

Jumping back to Thursday night's debate, she suggested that the role of the vice president be expanded. I wonder if as the potential president of the Senate, if she might not want to unplug those pesky C-SPAN cameras?
