Sarah Palin's interview on Oprah started off newsy, with lots of talk about her McCain campaign handlers and how they restricted her, the Katie Couric interview, etc. There are a few headlines flying around this evening after it finally aired...so here are a few of them. You can pick the scooplet you think is most newsworthy. In no particular order:
1. Asked about 2012, Palin said, "It's not on my radar screen."
2. She dismissed the idea of having a talk show of her own: "Oprah, you're the queen of talk shows. there's nothing to ever worry about."
3. She said she didn't get a say in how Bristol's pregnancy was announced. The McCain campaign came to her with a press release that conveyed what, Palin suggested to Oprah, was an inappropriate level of glee with her daugher's teenage pregnancy--then she rewrote it with the aide who brought it to her...and then the campaign sent out the original version instead.
"I did not want the message to be sent out that we were giddy happy to be grandparents," Palin said.
"We see it scroll across the screen, and there it is, what I didn't want sent"
4. After all the post-campaign stories about her alleged shopping spree and how much it cost the Republican National Committee, she said that when she realized the campaign would be picking her wardrobe, she thought, "I don't like to shop, and that's one less think I'm going to have to worry about."
