Newspapers a carrier she's been a journalist for twenty years and probably never.
Have gotten the storm you've been getting for the last week here's our right -- -- yet it.
That would discredit the perfect storm has been pretty wild and an -- and teach quite different.
-- I guess a good way to put it you -- you wrote this piece for I guess national review online has.
Let me correct that that is the misconception easily understood that I am syndicated by the Washington Post writers group international -- -- -- -- I -- that's.
What that's one -- -- venues but I guess it's so widespread online because of them so so let's thank you for correcting me on that.
What did you say that caused the -- -- Well I just said that after giving -- -- of the benefit of doubt and by the way writing five columns that were.
But he's been -- -- out -- -- that's actually.
I decided that that she's not up to up to the task and and urged her to step down and I realized that.
But nonetheless that I need to be said.
Did you expect the push that as a conservative did you expect the kind of push back you've got sent.
And I get fat and I eat because I just simply apple it competent I see it and that was just one more column in a series of balance a couple thousand Britain in the last twenty years that's.
Now I was shocked.
Get now looking back I shouldn't be because this is a very important election obviously and people are are passionate.
But -- I think people reacted in the way they have talking about.
Vicious and threatening.
Email to let you know that all -- -- -- are are expecting.
Really sure I know I get some of -- -- -- -- with him.
And I think it because one I think that what everybody really been thinking.
A lot of folks on the Republican side of the genocide -- hurt it's very personal way.
-- -- likely to criticize her they take that as a personal attack on them tactic that that explains that the -- emotional content.
It seems that Katie Couric asked a question directly related to what you wrote when -- she said that.
Her -- since our last interview he'd gotten a lot of -- some Republicans have said you're not prepared you're not ready for prime time.
People have questioned your readiness since that in -- -- and I'm curious.
To -- -- react not only am I ready.
But willing and able to serve as the vice presidents with Senator McCain if Americans so bless us and privilege us with the opportunity of serving them ready with my executive experience as a sitting -- -- manager as a governor as a commissioner -- regulator of oil and gas.
Seems like you spurred on that question where would you -- Well I think it it's been widely disseminated in fact I can tell you that much from my mail -- Possibly not the only person he's come out.
-- late Bernie Goldberg didn't disagree with you David from quoted -- -- -- opposes the chorus.
Says I think she's pretty thoroughly and probably irretrievably proven that she's -- up to the job.
For -- Florida Republican chairman Jim Greer Mike Murphy former McCain advisor.
These are all people on the right now the left pretty much echoing although -- not -- maybe specifically as hitters step down but not disagreeing with him.
Right -- I think that think people and taking it for awhile and primarily opened the floodgates abide by keeping it out loud I know that behind the campaign am.
Republicans are very worried about that.
But -- -- say it you know because they are first of all of the party members and I'm you know I'm not that the GOP it's.
My job to say to express an opinion and -- I just did.
What what did jump the shark field.
What what was -- the -- you to finally.
Did the interview was cut at -- I have watched all of her interview them mind you.
The McCain campaign is not allowed us access to her.
Phillies had to rely on these very high profile MP.
And he elation was just an issue you know it's not like -- can critique the content of her -- because they were not typical.
She was not able to to speak coherently so I'm not that much considering.
Whether she has I -- she's lacks experience in foreign policy economics but I mean it's you know apparently didn't read newspapers.
I got another TI Arab Katie Couric will have that clip later asked -- what papers she read she couldn't name.
-- mean for heaven's sake how -- is that just like it online parenting.
Apparently there's another piece coming up tomorrow night or Thursday night when Katie Couric asked her to name a Supreme Court decision other than Roe vs.
Wade she gets a blank stare.
Right right I have I heard about that and and it's not -- -- to come up with a couple of others.
They're -- people are pretty familiar with.
So what's gonna happen do you think -- The growing chorus of those saying what you're saying.
-- -- the guts to say at first is the second result than anything.
Well I think it resulted in the McCain campaign getting very very serious about preparing her for -- tomorrow night which now.
Amateur they say cylinder with them one liners and some strategies for for bridging to.
The two comments that direct attention away from her.
And we don't have that works.
I -- -- -- you know we remain to be seen whether he can actually pull that -- You know I'm I'm just.
You know as as an American I'm just very disappointed.
As as as -- -- probably.
-- you probably support John McCain I'm guessing.
Well I I don't endorse candidates but I have admitted in public and I paid for him in 2000.
I I really hope to what I want is -- that he -- to get into.
When you say -- only you know only McCain only Palin can save McCain.
Only chic she developed for personal reasons -- would criticize a mother -- put her family first do it for your country but if she were to -- out people would see that for what it is.
But what -- it would be a tacit admission -- John McCain made a bad choice would net doom his campaign.
Well it may be that the conventional wisdom certain certainly and they pointed to Eagles and the -- Campaign when when McGovern let -- tango.
They think that that was the end of that it may be other reasons not to -- from McGovern Alba.
You know what the government do.
My first election I've read that the world number of them my -- to me for two years.
Not G now I've got hope that you voted for George McGovern.
Maybe a comeback.
Former liberal America every liberal.

I'm told to was joking to that friend on the Republican side of it like inside I can't expect to be invited to the McCain White House if he should win issues that no.
