Governor Palin's interview with Charlie Gibson

Like many Americans, I tuned in to ABC on Thursday and Friday to see Charlie Gibson's interview with Governor Sarah Palin. To say I was shocked and appalled would be the understatement of the year.

First of all, it was evident that the interview had been edited to make Governor Palin look bad. The editing job was horrible!! I commented to Joel that it seemed like our son had been cutting the tape and pasting it back together. When Governor Palin is OBVIOUSLY stopped mid-sentence you know something was left out. How convenient for ABC and the left-winged camp.

I want to call your attention to a couple of things. First of all, check out this comparison of Gibson's interview of Senator Obama and his interview with Governor Palin. The italicised text below is from the Chesler Chronicles website. There is more info there, but I wanted to post this here:
Obama interview:
How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?

How does it feel to “win”?
How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling?
Who will be your VP?
Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
Will you accept public finance?
What issues is your campaign about?
Will you visit Iraq?
Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

Palin interview:
Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking?

Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
Questions about foreign policy
-territorial integrity of Georgia
-allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
-NATO treaty
-Iranian nuclear threat
-what to do if Israel attacks Iran
-Al Qaeda motivations
-the Bush Doctrine
-attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
Is America fighting a holy war? [misquoted Palin]

There’s no doubt the Charles Gibson interviews showed extreme prejudice against Palin and extreme favoritism towards Obama…He constantly questioned her ability to lead but never questioned Obama’s ability to lead..

Unreal. Conceited for seeking this high level job?? Are you kidding me? I'm not a feminist, but give me a break! These questions are similar in the same way that a Geometry test and a vocabulary quiz are similar.

The liberals are afraid of Palin so they have to ask difficult and highly complex worded questions, in hopes to "trip" her up. They are afraid of her because she embodies everything they have told themselves a woman in the 21st century cannot be and be successful at.
