Sarah Palin Claims She Did Couric Interview out of Pity for Couric’s Low Self Esteem

November 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)— Well, a few days before Sarah Palin’s much hyped book, Going Rogue hits the bookstores on Nov. 17, bits and pieces of her efforts to rewrite history and her attacks on members of the McCain campaign are starting to leak out. And one of the more laughable claims made in her book, is that Palin supposedly agreed to the now infamous Katie Couric interview, out of pity for the widely respected CBS anchor earning $15 million per year.

The interview with Katie Couric exposed Palin as an intellectual lightweight, who was definitely not ready for prime time and was alarmingly unqualified to be a heart beat away from the presidency. Palin’s performance during the interview was mocked and widely panned, when she became flustered and was unable to answer a simple question posed by Couric, asking Palin what magazines and newspapers she read.

In her book, Palin claims senior McCain adviser Nicolle Wallace told her that Couric suffered from low self-esteem problems. After hearing that, Palin claims she felt sorry for Couric and agreed to the interview out of pity.

The McCain camp denies Palin’s claims and laughed out loud at the notion of Palin taking pity on Couric. Greg Sargent of The Plum Line contacted a McCain advisor who flatly denied Palin’s claims.

It’s not true,” said the advisor. “It’s ridiculous,” the advisor added as he laughed. The advisor then went on to note that Palin refused to prepare for the Couric interview, and the entire nation saw the result. “The truth is, she refused to prepare for the Katie Couric interview. She refused to engage in any preparation. And it was a disaster,” said the McCain advisor.

The Associated Press obtained an advance copy of the book entitled, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” and just published an extensive fact checking piece debunking many of Palin’s self-serving claims made in the book.

Tina Fey plans to bring back her hilarious parody of Sarah Palin to Saturday Night Live in the wake of the book’s release, and it appears Fey will have lots of material to work with.
