Where’s the Jihad?
Here’s the link to ABC’s video:
Palin clarifies ‘God’ and War Remarks- Charlie Gibson asks Sarah Palin if the Iraq War is a holy war.
Can you give me a break! Just that title alone from ABC should tell you where the interview went. It’s clear Charlie does not give Palin much respect.
Charlie says to Palin, “But, but then are you sending your son on a task that is from God?”
If this would have been Obama, Charlie would have asked a feel-good question like, “so how does it feel to have a son going off to war?” Something emotive and mushy.
Michell Malkin has the “task from God” dust up.
I saw this coming from the AP story a few days ago.
Here’s my other post with the all of the Palin videos.
Here’s specific video. Her comments on “God’s plan” are from 3:30 to 4:00.
Palin’s exact quote:
And Track-pray for our military. He’s [Track] going to be deployed in September to Iraq. Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right also for this country; that our leaders, our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure we are praying for- that there is a plan and it’s God’s plan. So bless them with your prayers -your prayers of protection for our soldiers.
I’m sorry, I really must have missed the holy war reference in that quote.
Again, where’s the jihad?
The Gibson interview was what I expected. Palin was “darned if you do, darned if you don’t” the way Gibson backed her into corners. He was looking for ‘gotcha’ moments, no doubt.
If she said “invade Pakistan,” she’s a warmonger. If she said “I’d never invade Pakistan,” she’s soft on terrorism. Charlie could have asked her, “so when did you stop beating your husband?” Palin would have been in the same logical trap.
She has to interview. One down, many to go.
Look at this fluff piece on Biden done by Gibson. Thanks Gunservatively.
Hey Charlie, you want that with or without whip?
Gibson ABC family movie of the week – Joe Biden (sponsored by Dunkin Donuts).
This is very sad.
Hot Air has more commentary here.
As you watch the video, listen to Gibson’s constant sighing, moving around, and other gestures. Proof you can say smug without uttering a word.
Palin answers the Bush Doctrine question just fine- but not the way Charlie would like- and then he becomes the journalist from on high dispensing his wisdom. Nice, Charlie, nice.
