I did. I was flipping back and forth between that and my favorite show ever, American Idol. While I wasn’t really impressed with the talent on Idol, nor was I impressed with the shadow that Victoria Beckham’s jutting cheekbones cast over the other judges, I was rather impressed with the way that Palin conducted herself on the popular news show.
Palin was interviewed by O’Reilly on his show last night, welcoming her to the network. O’Reilly also took the natural initiative to inquire about her outlook on current government, including Sen. Henry Reid’s comments regarding race and “dialect” and current political events around the world. Despite previous botched media appearances, she appeared to be a natural on the show. She was articulate, witty and relatively fair — even someone who utterly deplores the woman can’t deny these base facts, even if shedid use the word ‘uncomfortableness.’
Palin reinforced her opinions on such topics as the possible sanctions regarding Iranian finances and businesses and the possibility of being more aggressive in protecting the American public and in my opinion, came across very well-spoken.
Was she coached? I’m assuming so. Obama himself is coached and probably 99.9% of politicians worldwide are mere subjects of what footsteps the public is to follow — this is natural and all part of the political machine, but you know what? On the whole, I think she killed it. You know … in a good way. I may not agree with many of her ideas and solutions to various socio-economic issues but I do think she did a fantastic job and deserves all of the positive praise that goes along with it.
What do you guys think, dissenters and all?
