"And what do you think of the Bush Doctrine, Sarah?"
And she hedged and hemmed and hawed a bit. Then smartly, but with obvious nervousness, said, "What aspects?" or some such question.
Sarah, next time, even in the upcoming debate, say, "What's the Bush Doctrine, Charlie? I'm not familiar with the term. You define it and I'll tell you what I think of it, if I can."
99 per cent of the viewers didn't know what it was. I've not heard much about it. Since then, I've looked it up and I know it's the media's interpretation of Bush's foreign policy--leading to "pre-emption" in Iraq. And the source I found in Google said there are at least 4 definitions of the term so she rightly asked Gibson to clarify what he wanted.
Well, we know what he wanted --to trip her up.
They did this sort of thing to Dan Quayle as Geo Bush, Sr's. running mate. The media elite who couldn't run a government if they had to, love to expose the midwesterner for his naivete, his lack of worldly knowledge and sophistication. Especially if he's a republican.
Sarah, you just relax and be your lovely self. Promise to research anything that's important to know when you draw a blank.
Don't let McCain's handlers wear you out. Follow your own instincts. They've served you pretty well thus far.
And relax in your chair. You looked a little tense and lost your model's posture, I thought --and like you didn't get a good night's sleep
We aren't behind you because you know everything there is to know: we are behind you because you share our values and ideals and we think that's important in national leaders who get our vote. And we think you've shown that you can rise to any challenge.
Don't let the Big Bad Boys of Elite Media scare you. They get no votes from us. Don't let anyone re-make you. You are just fine as you are.
