Why press the issue

Seriously. Surely the “she’s a good teleprompter reader” line is something some VRWC agent has somehow implanted into the subconscious of lefty Obamaphiles trying to belittle Palin’s speech.

Because, just like the attacks on her experience, the discussion of teleprompters actually puts the issue in terms where Obama has some serious problems.

So, we suppose we shouldn't be surprised to find some preemptive attacks, the subject of which apply to Obama.

Rich Lowry on the Corner points us to this from Jonathan Alter of Newsweek:

I'd imagine that Palin will dodge press conferences in favor of interviews with people like Sean Hannity, Larry King and Ellen DeGeneres. Then, when the media complain that she is being kept away, the McCain campaign will cite the half dozen or so interviews she has granted as proof that the campaign press is just bellyaching. Brief press "avails" on the plane will be useless, unless reporters ask open-ended queries designed to elicit proof of real knowledge.

Well, let’s just get this out in the open:

“Why can’t I just eat my waffle?”

…and…

“Come on, I already answered like eight questions.”

…are defenses Sarah Palin will not use to avoid questions from the media.

If Palin doesn’t want to talk to the press, she’ll just pull a gun on them.

“Dance, press boy, dance”
