Clips From Last Interview

She's obviously comfortable here.

But as Allah notes, the no-exceptions-for-rape-and-incest thing will spook some people. Yes, it's a principled position, and she has the courage of her convictions, but a lot of people who are sort of in the middle on the issue are going to balk at the idea of forcing a raped woman to carry her rapist's child to term.

Yes, the baby is innocent. But so is the woman.

I don't think this is going to damage her much. But it is going to turn off some independentish women.

Some of the Other Questions... 70% of the country favors a ban on "semiautomatic assault weapons," Charlie?

Well, if I didn't know anything about guns and heard that phrase I might be for a ban too. It sounds scary.

It's a made-up term, Charlie. Invented to scare people. There has never been a gun called "semiautomatic assault weapon" until liberal Democrats focus-grouped what words they could make up to sound scary. It has no meaning, except in its strange definition in the actual Assault Weapons Bill.

Compare: For those who think Sarah Palin's answers often sound canned -- as I do, actually -- a bit of perspective.

Canned, evasive answers from Barack Obama, including endless tap-dancing on whether or not the surge succeeded.

Does Obama sound more comfortable? He should. He's been mouthing this gibberish for months, with lots of different chances to try out new ways to avoid saying the obvious. He has the memory of twenty or thirty variations on this balderdash to play with, mix and match 'em, make it sound fresh.

Hey, give Palin time. I'm sure she'll prove as capable of mouthing smooth nonsense as The One, if she needs to.
