Here is the full Barbara Walters interview with Sarah Palin.



Palin does not hesitate to pimp her personal mythology during this interview.  She makes sure while describing what she reads that she includes a book about running marathons, C.S. Lewis books for Christian credibility, NewsMax as a nod to her Right Wing supporters, and the Wall Street Journal and a couple of newspapers just to show that Katie Couric bitch that she was wrong. She also refers to herself as "Sarah Palin, the hockey mom from Wasilla" in an attempt to redirect potential supporters away from the reality that she is now a multi-millionaire, with a television studio in her home, and the power to unleash thousands of flying monkeys to attack anybody who dares criticize or stand up to her, back to the more simple identity that worked so well for her during the 2008 campaign.

I found it very humorous that one part of the interview Palin makes light of the idea that she is "polarizing" and then only a handful of minutes later starts referring to the Republicans who suggest that she may have cost the GOP the Senate as "impotent," "limp," and "weak," and that they are "hiding behind somebody's skirts."

Yeah nothing polarizing about that! (I kind of thought it was interesting that immediately after Palin refers to her detractors as impotent and hiding behind somebody's skirts, that Walters asks that Todd join them on the set.  Is THAT a little shot there Barbara?)

Another thing that I found very telling is that Palin felt the need to respond, not only rumors of her and Todd's marital troubles, but to the babygate rumor, as well as the rumors about why Track really went into the military.  It is obvious that Sister Sarah STILL reads the blogs, and that she is STILL worried that information will be revealed which will change those rumors into undeniable facts. (Stay tuned Sarah, I am working on that!)

How is it that the guy that has barely said three words on camera in the last two years now can't stop talking when asked JUST for three words?

    Todd had his lines prepared for him in advance and he worked hard at rattling them off reasonably well. What a puppet! But he sure does look ill.

    Sarah's fear of exposure has begun to override even her sense of self-preservation. She's no longer building her base or even retaining it, she's just desparately seeking the comfort of past glory before she's relegated to the shadows of religious ministry TV shows (or jail).

    I don't know, Babs had a skeptical look when Mrs. Palin mentioned rumors that Track went to Eye-raq to avoid "jell." Maybe it's because she was trying to interpret her words, or maybe she was thinking, hmmm, I think I smell a fish, and I should follow up on that rumor.

    I noticed some really fast breathing around the Katie Couric part. That does NOT seem normal.

    Also, the impotent and limp comments are COMPLETELY inappropriate in a sit-down interview. She is SO tacky!!

    Look how much she tries to use her femininity when she calls the boys silly. This is obviously her chance to say the good ol' boys are against poor little Sarah. She smiles the entire time she is putting them down, as if saying it pleasantly doesn't count as a dagger. And I don't think every detractor is anonymous, or male.

    Did it really take two years to think up a couple of books that Sarah could remember (without notes on her hand)? Sarah and Franklin are all set to fly off to Haiti, and Sarah forgot to mention any or all of the books written by Billy Graham. Go over to Amazon and enter Graham's name in the book search, and his books fill a page.

    Again the references to male sexual dysfunction. From "limp, impotent, weak" republican men to all of the other men who supposedly want to molest or spy on her children you have to wonder, what on earth went on in the Heath household. I find it sad yet hilarious that the tough-talking republican men who do not hesitate to say the most offensive things imaginable to and about President Obama cannot find the c-c-c-courage to stand up to her. I thought the one, single thing that you could never get away with mocking in a man is his "functionality". When does the backlash begin? I'm waiting...

    sarah brought her cutesy, giggl persona with her for this interview. as snl had katie couric say, why is it that when cornered you become increasingly adorable? i don't find it adorable, though. shouldn't have watched it with breakfast. she is trying to show us the softer, more delicate side to the women who constantle screeches, "don't retreat, reload." it ain't workin'.
    barbara made some funny faces at her, and i noticed too that she called todd in after sarah did her usual emasculation of the press and the good ol' boys. he looks like hell on wheels. for his sake, i hope it's not serious or drug related. i would take drugs if i had to live that close to sarah though. but who says todd has to?

    Early in the interview, when Barbara Walters ask what her critics are afraid of and Palin changes the question to the fact that she is polarizing, so she can whip out the answer she already had written on her hand during interview practice...

    Also, she can't understand why "one episode would turn an issue into what it's become in the last few years"...which is such an inartful phrase, but more importantly is exactly what she and the right wing republicans have done to President Obama...this hypocritical woman is too much for me to take...she is so clearly uncomfortable in her own skin and her husband is afraid to be sitting next to her...and she was in the grocery check-out aisle???

    sometimes it can be so funny to watch palin's "act." the entire interview she's got her cutesy schtick going on. and when the viewer knows it's fake, it sticks out like a sore thumb - one that is not impotent and limp. man I can't believe she said that AGAIN. serious f-ing mental issues going on there.

    blaming the media for the "misperceptions" about her is also hilarious. and baba wawa lets her get away with it. there are no misperceptions. people have based their opinions of sarah on what comes out of her mouth and on her facebook screeds. no one needs the media to see that sarah is an insane, spiteful, vindictive dreg of society.

    watch the interview and imagine it's not sarah palin. what impression do you get? that it's a teenager who is being interviewed. her speech, her demeanor, and her body language make her come off as a teenager. no surprise, but just noted. not presidential by a long shot.

    and wow todd really shows he's a genius with that "3 words" thing. really? is the vocabulary so freaking limited that he can't think of 3 descriptive words?

    Where is the headline that Sarah Palin is calling her Republican males comrades "impotent, limp and weak" ??? THAT IS NEWS. Since when is name calling polarizing in Sarah's book?

    Palin is an expert on "impotent, limp, weak" Republican men who may not live up to he-man hunter Chuck in her view of the world. One of the positives about her reality show is seeing Track. They couldn't conceal his loser vibe for even half a second.

    Walters stinks to be part of this. She will not redeem herself for this horrible career move.

    Palin's handlers were right. She really needs damage control, pimping in Haiti will move her base, send money suckers.

    I am convinced that much of what we see with these two clowns does come from some type of drug abuse. There is something wrong with Sarah's mouth. Perhaps part of the reason she has the weird pronunciations is due to dry mouth and conditions of drug use. She may not want to chew gum or suck on a Jolly Rancher during a Barbara Walters interview. There are older video when she did not speak so weird. Aging does not cause one to talk like she does. She also goes into the rapid fire talk at times.

    Drugs, legal or not, can either enhance or kill off libido. This couple is a mess whatever it is they have gone through to keep their show on the road. Todd does look like a not so old but rapid aging speed freak. He may have contacted something. He is visibly deteriorating and it is not only from stress or practicing for Iron Dog. BW could have asked them if he still doesn't sleep. Sarah use to brag about that. Todd does not go to sleep, if he does it is for an hour or two. That may be what Levi referenced about the lounger. Typical addict behavior. A few brewskies and a short crash wherever.

    I will be shocked if we learn they both do not have a serious drug problem. There are far too many indicators. Ask an old speed freak that has survived for an opinion.

    "Palin holds no political office, and in fact, quit her job as governor when her incompetence became well-known and she became the target of investigations for malfeasance. The question is; what does Sarah Palin do? She weighs in on every subject as if her opinion carries any weight outside of her moronic Facebook followers. It doesn’t matter that every time Palin opens her filthy mouth, she gives her detractors reason to belittle and demean her.

    It is also curious that the main stream media gives Palin coverage when she is a big nothing in American government. Does the media give Palin attention because they think she has any prescient insight Americans can learn from, or do they publish her remarks so intelligent people can deride her? In a non-scientific poll, 70% of men said they like Palin because they want to have sexual intercourse with her. The remaining 30% said that regardless of her attraction, they wouldn’t have sexual intercourse with her because she is too stupid. Outside of the ignorant Christians and gun fanatics who worship her, Palin’s reputation is little more than a joke.

    Palin is a clown and a curiosity for most Americans, and few think she is qualified to lead the country. Her reality show on The Learning Channel is one big advertisement for guns and Sarah Palin. Does the network believe that Palin beating fish and shooting majestic animals is a teachable moment? Palin’s show is a mutual benefit for the network and her, but it sends a message to Americans that she is little more than an idiotic killer. Even Karl Rove has commented that Palin or her show do not represent leadership necessary to be president. Karl Rove is not a politician either, but he at least has experience in government; although why he continues to wield power is a mystery; unless one follows the money."

  52. It's extremely painful to watch Sarah interviewed and spouting nonsense without challenge.

    The 'BOYS' are 'impotent, limp, and weak'. How could Sarah govern at any level of government when she doesn't respect anyone?

    Who is Dean KARZO? And why doesn't she say the the title of the book? Was she talking about, 'Ultramarathon Man: Confession of An All-Night Runner' by Dean Karnazes. Is that it?

    Not that it matters. My beef with Sarah isn't that she doesn't read and isn't informed. Heck, she gets daily briefings on international and national affairs. The problem is that she's dumb and is incapable of comprehension.

    Why does Barbara Walters think it's such a big dill that Sarah said she could beat Pres. Obama? Was there any other other possible answer coming from a hopeful candidate?

    So here's what really happened when Sarah kept missing the Caribou. The first rifle was just fine but Sarah flinched so bad that she kept missing. Even after they gave her a rest to shoot from. Then they filmed her shooting a different rifle and they showed the caribou being hit. What really happened is that the guide took the rifle and shot the caribou for Sarah. A little mouse that was there watching the whole scene saw it and asked me to tell you people.

    Something wrong with the other rifle? Blahhhhhh, get serious! The only thing that went wrong was the shooter.

    Man, you can tell she had to stop herself when the topic of Couric came up. What a bitter, bitter woman. She can't even hide it. Sorry Sarah, but you endured not a single challenging interview in the very limited opportunity that the country had to get to know you in 2008, and the very few that you did do revealed a grossly pathetic, even insulting candidate. Now you think we should adore you for no reason and accuse us of having false perceptions if we don't? For someone who allegedly believes in the raw values of hard work and so on, don't you know that you have to prove yourself first? When running for a national office, don't expect that you can just give a few soft speeches, wink at the audience, and then expect everyone to cheer. While you wish it were all just some kind of popularity contest, the rest of us do not. Do you think you're going to get your way on the world stage just because you think you made a great outfit selection, even though you can't demonstrate that you know anything about the topics at hand? You're as self-obsessed as they come, but the rest of us don't see the universe as the "World of Sarah Palin."

    The "limp" etc comments just come across as downright petty. She truly has the maturity level of a 4 year old.

    I hate watching TV b/c every other ad is about Viagra. Republicans vote for Viagra and shortchange women. All the Republican Sarah talk about limp and weak and impotent just proves how disgusting, hypocritical and sexist they all are. The Republican enablers that tolerate the pharmacy crap and talk like Sarah are just as much the problem. When are people going to organize and stop putting up with this? Put children first, before Viagra. It's time for the pitch forks.

    Don't forget how Bristol is used for breeder causes. They are messing with our, all children. All they want is to cover up their lies, crimes and perversions and feed old men Viagra or steroids or something to build up the unreal and unnatural. They do not care about girls, children or women at all, except for their service. Warren Jeffs loves the ladies, too, don't persecute him for his religion. If Wikileaks does nothing else but expose the Vatican, it has done a good job. I am sick of children getting such raw deals. And now we will have to watch the Palins and Graham exploiting Haitian children so they can collect more wealth and finally show Palin as charitable. GAG.

    Flipping through stations and happened upon CNN as they reported Palin & family in Haiti with Graham and will be delivering holiday gifts to children at a cholera clinic. WTF??

    You might think that delivery of medicine is the highest priority & a better idea in that the kids may not survive to play with any holiday gifts.

    Fucking stupid bitch.

    Raises the question too - when did these morons have shots to go to Haiti? Or did they?

    This should be an issue that Levi should march his ass into a competent lawyer's office (not the idiot Rex) and into Court with, as Bristol or anyone of them coming back could carry a number of infections to pass on to Tripp as I doubt Levi was aware Bristol was planning on attending. That Tripp is living at the compound now as advised in one of the DWTS interviews that Bristol had moved back home - Tripp is exposed. As to the rest in the family, not Levi's responsibility but Tripp is. Anyone of them could contact diseases as I doubt they prepped for it.

    you would think she would not sound so heavily scripted to the point where she keeps repeating the same soundbites over and over and over and over.

    hmm, like every other politician out there. They all sound like robots. There is not one genuine sounding leader who's attained national prominence today

    My bet is that she's frigid. The sexy act is a cover.

    It doesn't seem like anything about her is real. When asked to debunk the marriage problem rumor, she uses distancing to avoid giving an answer. How could the rumor possibly be true when there are other rumors about her family? How can it be true when she can poke Todd and tell a funny story? Holy Cheesus!

    Yes, she looks like she may be pregnant but that picture doesn't show a definitive pregnant belly. It could be fat. And, yes, some women and teens wear scarves when it's hot.

    For friends of the Palins: Please tell Sarah that she will NOT be able to say that Bristol hid her pregnancy under scarves and layers just like Sarah did. Bristol has looked pregnant for months. Sarah NEVER did and we have photos to prove it.

This is not a style a young person wears who normally wears tight fittings T's and sweats.

    You can see that the scarf does not fall straight down from the bust but in fact pushes further out due to stomach expansion.

    Another way of noticing the stomach expansion is to look at the arm positions of Sarah and Bristol.

    Notice Sarah - Shoulder to elbow straight down. Definite bend in elbow. Elbow to wrist - stomach appears to be about mid arm between elbow/wrist.

    Bristol - Shoulder to elbow - elbow forward. No definite bend in elbow. Elbow to wrist - stomach appears to be about 2/3 along arm between elbow/wrist. If shoulder to elbow had been straight down - stomach would have been at wrist.

    I'd say scarf is covering the bust growth. White top appears tight to side of scarf. Think back of picture at RNC Convention - large bust and dress was extremely tight.

    When someone becomes a major celebrity and takes America by storm like everybodies Sweetheart (Palinbots claim) their fashion sense and style becomes an instant fad. Are teens and young women rushing out to buy scarves now?

    That would be a true indication that the Palinbots claims are authentic and not just more BS.

    How many times have we seen this 20 year old celebrity (with a mother who only wore scarves when she said she was pregnant) wearing a scarf? It is more and more a frequent occurance with Bristol. Did she ever wear scarves before? It certainly brings up some questions. This scarf outfit in Haiti is about the strangest yet. No one else from Wasilla or elsewhere are following her lead and wearing such an odd fashion statement. If nothing else this is the nuttiest Bristol happening yet. Who wears a scarf with a tee and casual pants (Wasilla group uniform)? Now if Bristol is so popular with the masses it will be a trend and the fashion houses will not lag to bring it on. Nothing about a scarf like that in Haiti on a warm day makes sense unless you consider the psychological and other reasons a 20 year old Bristol would dress that way. To me this is a far worse wardtrobe malfunction than any thing before. It is crazy beyond discription or words. She will now have to do an Angelina Jolie photo. This is next.

    Media Insider, I always thought you probably knew what you were talking about, though as we all realize, gossip is gossip and may not always be reliable. I never thought you were a troll at all. I have appreciated your willingness to come on here and share what you have heard.

    I agree that other blogs and their "regulars" can be rather capricious in their desire for transparency and ultimately, control. It's not very hospitable, actually. Whenever you drive commenters away it is a bad thing, I believe. We might miss the opportunity to learn something.

    I don't need to know anyone's identity for this to be a constructive endeavor. I don't need to see a consistent screen name to feel good about carrying on our efforts. This isn't a social club, though we all share a similar outlook on this topic and we all feel good about trying to unravel Sarah Palin's political career - ASAP. The rest is irrelevant. I think some really derive a great deal of self-esteem from these threads, and it means a lot that they are a "known" quantity, with varying degrees of status depending on the dynamic. There is also camaraderie, which is nice, but again not a requirement, for me.

    As Gryphen says, we must keep our critical faculties going at all times, and this also means we mustn't discount anything written here. Obvious troll abuse is easy to identify and respond to or ignore as one sees fit. The rest of it we can just take with a grain of salt and see what happens next...

    You never know, right? Sarah herself may surprise us with a visit. Wouldn't that be something?!

    Sarah, we know you or one of your posse read this blog. How's about one of you identifying yourselves so we can have a good conversation?

    Good luck, Media Insider~

    yes it most certainly is. can you imagine what all the non-haitian people there were thinking when they saw her? they seriously had to be wondering wtf was going on. out of all the things bristol could wear, she chose that? she had the vest on in the pic that looks like her exiting the helicopter. then in greta's pic, no vest - but a scarf? a white short sleeved t-shirt with a scarf? I mean really, wtf? you can bet it didn't get past greta, but she will keep her mouth shut for more palin face time.

    I've thought for months that they paid levi off (why hasn't anyone heard from levi? he doesn't have a job - hows he paying the child support?). I think they agreed to drop the child support and pay him a nice sum to say that this kid is his. I guess we'll find out in a few months.

    then there's also the possibility that only crossed my mind today - that maybe they will put the kid up for adoption and be done with him. given that bristol has spanxed herself within an inch of her life, maybe she doesn't care about the kid and if he comes out all deformed and fucked up from being choked for months.

    Palin visits Haiti under tight guard (Who pays for security?)
    Palin, who traveled in part by helicopter, provided access on her tour solely to the U.S. cable network Fox News. (Are there any media or photographers in Haiti that could use some work? Perhaps a photo opportunity that could also bring some big attention to the plight of Haitians and big money to their economy. Graham and Fox only want donations and attention as they see fit.)
    Though Port-au-Prince was calm for most of the day, Palin avoided the capital, heading north to visit a Samaritan's Purse project in the small town of Bercy.
    "It would be good if she came, because we could tell her that we need medicine and jobs," said Roseline Frederique, a 21-year-old resident of the capital's Cite Soleil slum who is being treated for cholera symptoms
    .

    I watched just the part with Todd and kept the sound off because I cannot tolerate listening to her screeching. It's very obvious from the way they are sitting that they're very uncomfortable, either with each other or with the situation.

    Their bodies are tilted away from each other and he's holding his right arm so that it has little contact with her. Her left arm is resting on her leg but is pulled as far away as possible from him. He even leans away from her for most of the interview and, when she jabs him in the side with her elbow, he tilts even further away.

    In that situation, when a spouse sits on the arm of a chair, the natural instinct (and most comfortable position) would be to put your right arm along the back of the chair behind the spouse sitting down. By holding his arm across his body, he is clearly protecting his own 'space'.

    Thinking about a trip to Haiti?

    To 'help' or make some commercials?
    Here is what the Centers for Disease Control has to say about it.
    Guidance for Relief Workers and Others Traveling to Haiti for Earthquake Response. This information is current as of today, December 11, 2010 at 20:53 EST


    http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/content/news-announcements/relief-workers-haiti.aspx

    "This notice is to advise relief workers and other personnel traveling to Haiti to assist with the humanitarian response following the January 12th earthquake near Port-au-Prince. Conditions in the area remain hazardous, including extensive damage to buildings, roads, and other infrastructure.

    Other details as to recommended vaccinations, various disease and other health risks present, and preventative measures that some people might take may be viewed there.


    Let's look at what the CDC has to say about visiting Haiti and Malaria.

    "Insect-borne Diseases
    Malaria


    Malaria occurs in all parts of Haiti. Ways to prevent malaria include the following:

    * Taking a prescription antimalarial drug
    * Using insect repellent and wearing long pants and sleeves to prevent mosquito bites (Remember those pictures posted today? )
    * Sleeping in air-conditioned or well-screened rooms or using bed nets

    No antimalarial drug is 100% protective, so it is important to use all three ways to prevent malaria."


    There is more information on antimalarial drugs at a link there.

    http://www.cdc.gov/malaria/travelers/drugs.html

    Of the five choices, three are not to be used by pregnant women, and the remaining two must be taken prior to the trip. From the CDC site- some info on the choices for pregnant women:

    Chloroquine:

    * For trips of short duration, some people would rather not take medication for 4 weeks after travel
    * Not a good choice for last-minute travelers because drug needs to be started 1-2 weeks prior to travel.


    Mefloquine
    (Lariam):



    * Can be used in second and third trimester of pregnancy and in first trimester if there is no other option (i.e., postpone travel)

    * Cannot be used in patients with certain psychiatric conditions

    * Not a good choice for last-minute travelers because drug needs to be started at least 2 weeks prior to travel
    * For trips of short duration, some people would rather not take medication for 4 weeks after travel"


    The summary by the CDC on Malaria is:
    "Malaria is always a serious disease and may be a deadly illness. If you become ill with a fever or flu-like illness either while in Haiti or after you return home (for up to 1 year), you should seek immediate medical attention and should tell the doctor that you have recently been in Haiti."

    Still planning to go to Haiti?
    There is Dengue Fever too.

    "Dengue is a common infection in Haiti. Dengue is a disease caused by a virus transmitted to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Some important information to know about dengue as you travel to Haiti:

    * No vaccine or medications are available to prevent dengue.
    * The best way to reduce your risk of dengue is to protect yourself from mosquito bites (see Insects below for more information).
    * The mosquitoes that spread dengue usually bite at dusk and dawn but may bite at any time during the day. (Remember those short sleeve pictures today?)
    There are no specific medicines to treat dengue, so treatment is supportive with fever-reducing medicines and fluids.

    They will only be there for 2 days. Just time enough to pose. The only work they are doing is to fill their own portfolio with more myths on how brave and humanitarian they are. Some one else is doing most of that, taking pictures and writing the lies. Next it may be the UK and helping the elderly. What a pity if they carry the malaria.

    Little Miss trend setter, hard at work in her Carolina Herrera scarf ensemble. I hadn't noticed Todd's beer expansion before. How old is he? He needs to get to work on a few things.

  128. Why oh why were Sarah's eyes so dilated? What was she on?? Neither Barbara's nor Todd's eyes were similarly dilated . . .

    OK, I watched it and you guys are right on. Todd looks really ill and Sarah behaved like a teenager prom queen being interviewed before the homecoming game. She is so far gone and is truly deluded if she believes this interview is in anyway pre-presidential. The bizarre recap of past stories regarding their marriage was over the top weird. And the creepy allusion to the Trig story was equally nutty. She really thinks she might get some traction on that one. Sorry Sarah, I do believe you gave birth to Trig and I and others are totally convinced you were hoping for a fundy abortion the entire time you carried him. You show no qualities of a caring loving mother. You seem only concerned about money and fame.

    This is what I think. I also think Bristol had a baby
    before Tripp.
