Um…No…

It was not a “gotcha” question.  It was a simple question about American history, and you blew it, Mrs. Palin.  Be a Mama Grizzly and just admit you got it wrong.

Of course, this is Sarah Palin- for whom “Do you like pizza” would be claimed to be a gotcha question.

  1. This was so classic. Firstly, she began spouting off, obviously having NO clue what she was talking about. Then she refused to admit that she didn’t know what she was talking about and accused everyone ELSE of not knowing their history. Then she became the victim, because other people were mean to her…expecting her to know stuff like history!

    It also wasn’t a “gotcha” at all. She was the one who started babbling all of this, without any prompting.

    Sarah Palin has a certain innate shrewdness, and a low cunning…but she hasn’t even the tiniest bit of intellectualism.

  2. Well, she had a prompting. It was “What have you seen so far today and what are you going to take away from your visit?”

    So, in Palin’s world (and her defenders) *everything* is a gotcha question. Although, I loved John Stewart’s point that something isn’t a “gotcha question” just because it… “got…ya”.
