Maybe if the Sen. John "F--- You" presidential campaign had let the American public see this Gov. Sarah Palin instead of her weak performance up against CBS' news "anchor" Katie Couric, at least she would have been given a real chance. And maybe, just maybe the McCain/Palin ticket could have pulled off enough close states to win the election.
In the interview with John Ziegler, one point Gov. Palin rightfully brings up is that when President-elect Barack Obama said that his wife, Michelle, and family were off limits to media scrutiny. The Dinosaur, Drive-By, Mainstream, Obama-Worshiping Media dutifully complied. But, damn if the American public did not know sordid details about the Palin family including the pregnancy of her oldest daughter, Bristol.
Watch the whole thing.
I know that it will not change the minds of the Palin haters and that is fine. They are haters anyway and will never be open to any possibilities. But the majority of the American people love second acts. And, when Gov. Palin runs for reelection for governor in 2010 and I hope for president if not in 2012, but 2016, they will be willing to look at her record and judge accordingly.
