Palin supports legal abortion:
Couric: But ideally, you think it should be illegal for a girl who was raped or the victim of incest to get an abortion?
Palin: I'm saying that, personally, I would counsel the person to choose life, despite horrific, horrific circumstances that this person would find themselves in. And, um, if you're asking, though, kind of foundationally here, should anyone end up in jail for having an … abortion, absolutely not. That's nothing I would ever support.
Palin says homosexuality is a bad "choice":
But as for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships. I have one of my absolute best friends for the last 30 years happens to be gay, and I love her dearly. And she is not my "gay friend," she is one of my best friends, who happens to have made a choice that isn't a choice that I have made. But I am not going to judge people.
Palin reads "all" news sources, but doesn't know the names of any of them:
Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?
Palin: I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.
Couric: What, specifically?
Palin: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.
Couric: Can you name a few?
Palin: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, "Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?" Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.
The comments on that page are a hoot, with all the Palin fans attacking Couric for "hounding" poor Sarah with endless "questions." "So what if she's not very informed? You media elites just don't like average people!"
Because when I step into that voting booth, it's vitally important that I know the candidate I vote for is more ignorant than I am. That way, I'm not an "elite."
I'll bet any amount of money that the idiots attacking the media for making an issue of Palin's ignorance and "hating ordinary Americans" are the same idiots who said Obama wasn't experienced enough to be President and attacked the media for not focusing enough on it.
