Lying On Leno

More

by Chris Bodenner

Sarah Palin talks to Jay Leno about the "Family Guy" controversy:

"I commented and then that gets out there in the blogosphere, it gets out there in the different forms of the mediums that we have today. And then it’s left there, not an opportunity for me to follow up and kind of elaborate on what I really meant and what I really thought of the thing.” Before Mr. Leno went to a commercial break, Ms. Palin said that a fuller opportunity to discuss the incident would have led to a “much healthier dialogue.” After the commercial, she did not expand on her remarks.

The New York Times had previously sought comment from Ms. Palin about the “Family Guy” episode and Ms. Friedman’s response to her, but neither her press representative nor her political action committee replied to requests.

And for the record: After Palin Facebook'd her comments on a Tuesday morning, "The O'Reilly Factor" - the highest-rated cable news show on television - gave her 5 minutes to elaborate that evening.
