Sarah Palin in debate, could moderator Gwen Ifill be a factor?

Posted on: October 2, 2008

Here is a clip of Sarah Palin in  debate for Governor of Alaska

She is a natural. She is smooth, straightforward, unfazed and direct and impressive.

Don’t be fooled, this 2006 debate is not to be dismissed because it’s only a small job or low profile debate. The gubernatorial debate carried as much significane in the political career of Sarah then, as tonight’s debate is significant now.  

Let Sarah be herself!

Now the question of tonight’s debate. Gwen Ifill of PBS and author of an admiring forthcoming book on Obama and New Black Politicians in the Age of Obama  becoming a fixture as moderator of the VP debates.

Obviously, Ifill would like to not be the topic of debate herself. She would like to come out as an even-handed moderator, and a fair journalist, in a season that has had few of either. She begins with a handicap as the author and yes, financial and perhaps emotional investor in one presidential candidate over the other:

There is plenty of youtube material out there to give fodder to doubters of her objectivity, such as this tough questioning of GOP surrogates just a month ago:

Regardless, it comes down to how Sarah Palin handles herself. So what exactly is Sarah Palin capable of in a debate?   Will it be a spontaneous, organic, ‘being herself’ type of Sarah Palin, instinctive and true? Or, will she be an over-managed, over-coached, over-restricted student-candidate, that will be boxed into talking points. (I suspect this latter person was seen on the Couric show). Also, the latter route was apparently followed by Edwards and did not help him.

The VP debates don’t count much for votes, they just confirm the views voters already formed about the ticket. The idea that Sarah Palin situation is somehow dramatically more critical because of McCain’s age is pure canard. It not only overlooks his good health, and the Reagan example, it also sets up a meme to re-attack McCain via soft money groups on the issue of McCain’s skin cancer (which in modern world is probably the cancer least likely to kill, being visible and curable). The left and the media will spare no effort in spinning the debate performance, so why not let us have a good show of the real Sarah?

So, I say, let Sarah Palin be Sarah Palin. She is a natural, instinctive politician. You heard that straight from the master himself a few weeks ago, Bill Clinton.

Regardless of the controversy, Sarah Palin is going to crush Joe Biden tonight because she is a Master Debater. Just check it out for yourself. The pic on this site says it all (scroll down once you get there):

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]

    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington.

    Pope Francis says gay couples cannot be considered a family. The media know he said this but, with few exceptions, they refused to run this story. The blackout, it is easy to prove, was intentional.

  • Atheist Richard Dawkins Slams Pope Equating Abortion to Nazi Eugenics June 18, 2018
    Pope Francis is wrong, according to one famed atheist and media-beloved figure. Abortion is about avoiding “human suffering,” not eugenics. Over the weekend, CNN and The Associated Press reported that Pope Francis condemned the abortion of those with birth defects or disorders as the “white glove” equivalent to Nazi eugenics. Hours later, on Monday, author a […]

    A 10-year-old boy dresses in drag and walks down a runway while adults watch. You would think that this was a headline for a story about child abuse. Instead the media uses a confused little boy to help push an agenda.

    CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King was absolutely unhinged on Monday, putting aside any pretense of objectivity as she blasted the Trump administration’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants: King excoriated it as a form of “child abuse,” an indication of “zero humanity” and lectured viewers at the start of the show that the “Statue of Li […]
