Come on. Did you really think Miss Sarah was going to go gently into that cold, snowy Alaska night? Did you truly believe her 15 minutes wouldn't be strategically extended? Recently, Mrs. Palin sat down with documentary filmmaker John Ziegler, to discuss everything from Tina Fey to Bristol and Levi to Katie Couric. And as it turns out, Mrs. P. is mad. Real mad.

My favorite part of this entire piece is this quote from Miss Sarah:
"What is it that drives people to believe the worst and perpetuate the worst, in terms of gossip and lies?"
In the classic cartoon sense, a lightbulb went off in my head. I remembered how Mrs. Palin used one of her campaign stump speeches to badmouth Barack Obama, and to exaggerate his relationship with individuals she referred to as "domestic terrorists." In case you missed it, here's a reminder:

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. The issues that confront us in America are what Americans care about. We are not interested in how mad you are at everybody. We care about credit card finance charges of up to 30 percent. We care about mortgage companies that refuse to exhaust any other alternatives before foreclosures. We really care about not having health insurance simply because many of us have to choose between food on the table and a possible medical emergency. It is important to us that more than 4,000 Americans are dead because of an administration that could not wait to get all the facts before invading a country that did not merit our aggression. We are scared of a national unemployment rate that appears to be approaching eight percent, the highest level since 1945. Perhaps the next time you feel like pontificating, it could be about something....anything other than how mean and nasty the media are, and how unfairly you were portrayed to the public. Perhaps this could be your last meaningless exchange with an interviewer:
