Palinpalooza: Live Mic Left On, Reporters Call Palin "Dumb"

Another day, another fiasco for Sarah Palin. Technicians and reporters give a critique of her speech which is caught live. Sarah Jones at Politicsususa gives her take:

OK, people. I tweeted Palin’s CSU Stanislaus speech tonight so you wouldn’t have to listen. I thought it was going well (sliding scale), and breathed a sigh of relief for her when it ended…only to be SHOCKED by hearing reporters discussing her performance in a brutally frank manner, reminiscent of Peggy Noonan’s open mic debacle regarding Palin. Of course, Peggy’s open mic moment left us wondering why the pundits were not being honest with us about Palin. Clearly they knew she wasn’t up to the task of Vice President. But I digress….

As we know, where ever Sarah goes, drama follows.

During the live mic drama at the end, the reporters said now they know that her “dumbness doesn’t come from soundbites” and wondered if she had finished ONE statement, but decided, no she had not. They laughed derisively and made jokes about having to text their conservative friends about this. Other various comments:

“I feel like I just got off a rollercoaster.”
“She didn’t finish a statement.”
“I don’t know how you’re gonna make a story out of that.” “Well, that’s the story.”
“Did she even make a point?”
“Lots of Reagan.”
“Just put as many random quotes in as you can.”

Naturally hearing what amounted to the god's honest truth infuriated the Palinites, forcing Fox40 to issue an apology.

Palingates has covered the drama surrounding the Drama Queen in some detail, including the controversy over exorbitant fees Palin commands, her contract only discovered in a dumpster by CSU students.
