Palin has not chosen to be gay

Katie Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this, to stay informed and to understand the world.

Sarah Palin: I've read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media, coming ...

Couric: Like what ones specifically I'm curious that you ...

Palin: Um, all of 'em, any of 'em that um have, have been in front of me over all these years, um ...

Couric: Can you name a few?

Palin: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news. Alaska isn't a foreign country where it's kinda suggested it seems like, 'Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C. may be thinking and doing when you live up there in Alaska?' Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.
I don't get it. The prospective first in line to the U.S. presidency, with an undergraduate degree in journalism, can't — or won't — name a single publication that she reads, or has read?

And then rambles away about Washington, D.C. and Alaska, as if that has anything to do with the question.

If she can't, then that is simply astonishing. Nay, disturbing. And if she won't, then why not? "All of 'em ... most of 'em ... any of 'em ... [the ones that] have been in front of me ..."

What? Which? Who?

Aside from the John Birch Society's official organ, that is.

But she's chosen to be stupid.

That was an elitist question. Only elitists read the news.

I'm sure a lot of people have responded with that suggestion, and they were dead serious.

You got it, IT. His skirmishes with Bob Probert are legiondary.
Also, as a member of Canada, which borders the United States, he is something of an expert in foreign policy.

Probert especially, who is from Windsor, Ontario. You can see Detroit from there.

I saw Windsor from the Ambassador Bridge. Now I'm an expert on titty bars.
