The Odd Lies Of Sarah Palin XXIII: Recalling Couric

More

Another little gem. Palin complained to Matt Lauer that Katie Couric had crossed a line of condescension in interviewing her:

Palin said she was annoyed by "questions about, well, you know, 'What do you read up there in Alaska?' … Because I'm like, what do you mean, what do I read in Alaska? I read the same things that you guys read in New York."

Here's the question Couric actually asked:

"When it comes to establishing your world view, 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?"

The truth is that Palin has never read anything of any seriousness, and is trying to deflect from her massive ignorance by playing culture war games. She heard about the surge "on the news," remember?
