Tonight brings the much-anticipated debate between Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her Democratic opponent Joe Biden. And, once again, in an interview with CBS' Katie Couric, Palin has stumbled.
In precursor interviews with both candidates, Couric ask each to cite one decision the U.S. Supreme Court has made, other than Roe v. Wade, that they disagreed with.
Biden immediately cited the Violence Against Women's Act, which he introduced, which would allow women who were victimized by crimes to sue their attackers. The Supreme Court overturned portions of that law.
Palin couldn't think of one solitary high court decision, other than Roe v. Wade, that she disagreed with. Not a single one in the history of the United States.
As she has prepared for tonight's debate, Palin has been calling conservative radio talk shows to attack the mainstream media. Saying that she's looking forward to addressing the American people tonight without being "filtered" by the mainstream news media.
But if her past performances in interviews with Couric are any indication, Palin won't then have an excuse for not knowing the issues. She has to ace this debate. Or she will be a heavy rock around John McCain's neck. Pulling him under the political waters. Sinking his run for the presidency.
The upcoming vice-presidential debate will be one of the issues discussed at 5 PM New York time today on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com. CLICK HERE to join in the conversation.
