Little Old Sarah

by digby

She's laying it on a little bit thick these days, I'm afraid:

INGRAHAM:Would you agree to a debate with Al Gore on this issue?

PALIN: Oh my goodness. You know, it depends on what the venue would be, what the forum. Because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I’ll get clobbered because, you know, they don’t want to listen to the facts. They don’t want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.

INGRAHAM: But what if it’s an Oxford-style, proper debate format. I mean, he’s going to chicken out. I mean, if you challenge him to a debate, do you actually think he would accept it?

PALIN: I don’t know, I don’t know. Oh, he wouldn’t want to lower himself, I think, to, you know, my level to debate little old Sarah Palin from Wasilla.

I would bet you a million dollars that she had no idea what an Oxford-style, proper debate format was.

I'm sure her whining victimization and nasty tone are big sellers to the wingnuts, but she's going to have to get over that if she wants to run for office (which I'm increasingly sure she doesn't.) People don't feel comfortable with leaders who sound simultaneously weak and mean.
