Palin Jokes about Biden’s Age

On the campaign trail, Gov. Sarah Palin jokes about listening to Sen. Joe Biden’s speeches since she was in second grade. In a just-released CBS News segment, Katie Couric asks if that isn’t an odd thing to say given her own running mate’s age.

Said Palin: “Oh no, it’s nothing negative at all. He’s got a lot of experience and just stating the fact there, that we’ve been hearing his speeches for all these years. So he’s got a tremendous amount of experience and, you know, I’m the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he’s got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.”

Palin: ‘What The Bailout Does Is Help Those Who Are Concerned About Health Care Reform’

This is simply amazing! There is no better reason as to why the Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates need to go on as scheduled then the following exchange between Katie Curic and Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin on this mornings CBS Early Show.

During the interview, Couric asked Palin why she believes the Wall Street bailout is needed.

Palin responded incoherently by claiming that the bailout would “help those who are concerned about health care reform.” Palin then appeared to look down at her notes and says, “Oh, it’s got to be all about job creation”:

COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.
