ABC's morning anchorperson took on Governor Sarah for her first Most Excellent TV Interview Adventure.
She had her weak moments. But at the end of the day, the imperious, supercilious, self-important Professor Gibson just made himself look...small.
It has come to me recently that I have one very, very big fear about the 2008 U.S. election:
I fear that at some point, Sarah Palin's mountain man husband, Todd
is just gonna HAVE to CLOCK somebody!!!And I would SO want to be there when it happens! Please, somebody, have the camera rolling!
But I sure hope it doesn't turn out to be former-conservative-turned-alien-life-form Andrew Sullivan, cuz Andrew's, er, "husband" is a REALLY big dude too,
and he might decide that, like Mr. Palin, he has to step in and..., um,... defend his woman.... as 'twere.
Among Sullivan's early reactions to the Palin pick [even before he became an irresponsible smear-monger in the National Enquirer mode]:
And later, after flogging every scandal he could scrape off the bottom of his shoe [about Bristol being Trig's mother, about an affair with a business partner, you name it, he disseminated it]:

Now I understand: she's a pro-life mother of a Down Syndrome child. And she's not from the South.
She is a long-time member of the Assemblies Of God. That's all you need to know.Sully, we hardly know ye..... Well, yeah -- we do now.
Hurricane Ike -- bearing down on my little niece's house! STOP THAT!
