Too close for comfort

My man and I watched this SNL skit from last night. He hadn't seen any of the real interview. Watch it here

[Editorial note: I tried to embed it but its wide screen is too big! Hulu, get a blog friendly embeddable player please]

After we watched that one, I had him watch the real thing:

He said..."wow". I think that just about sums it up. Shock and awe...ike a watching a train wreck.

And in case you didn't quite catch's a read:

Couric: Why isn't it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more, and put more money into the economy, instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.
