Charlie Gibsons interview with Gov. Sarah Palin should be put in a time capsule and saved for future generations to understand why Democrats in veering far-left during the first eight years of the 21st century became the extinct dinosaurs of American politics by once again losing their bid for the presidency.
There was ABC-TVs Gibson, looking clinically depressed and speaking in that faux-soft voice people use when trying to suppress their rage, questioning the vice-presidential candidate in all of her youthful, can-do American optimism. What a picture!
Gibson embodied the media elites and other leftover leftists from the 60s whose entire raison dêtre since 2000 has been to demonize the president, our war efforts, and our country, to tear down and excoriate them, to side with our enemies, and to undermine every attempt to achieve victory in Iraq, create energy independence, and maintain intelligence secrecy all in the service of electing a Commander in Chief whose Marxist/socialist worldview reflected their own.
In glaring contrast, Palin embodied all those who love our country, appreciate the need to defend it at all costs, pray daily for our victory over a determined enemy and for our troops themselves, revere the importance of family and the sanctity of life, appreciate that energy independence is a national security issue, and believe that whats wrong with Washington including a Democrat Congress with the lowest poll ratings in history (Gallup had it at 6% in June) can and will be reformed by people with proven track records in doing just that.

I hadn't seen this one before but it's by the same author, Joan Swirsky and I thought some of you might find it as interesting as I did.
Gibson, the Biased ABC Media Bully [looking down his nose from up on high]:
"Please take off your American flag pin. The American flag is an abomination now prohibited by ABC News."
"The Times got it wrong. And Charlie Gibson got it wrong.
There is no single meaning of the Bush doctrine. In fact, there have been four distinct meanings,
each one succeeding another over the eight years of this administration--
and the one Charlie Gibson cited is not the one in common usage today.
...... I know something about the subject because, as the Wikipedia entry
on the Bush doctrine notes, I was the first to use the term."
Obama's Puff-piece interview:
How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?
How does it feel to win?
How does your family feel about your winning breaking a glass ceiling?
Who will be your VP?
Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
Will you accept public finance?
What issues is your campaign about?
Will you visit Iraq?
Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
What did you think of your competitors [Clinton] speech?
Palin's 'kangaroo court' interview:
Do you have enough qualifications for the job youre seeking?
Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
Arent you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
Questions about foreign policy

Is America fighting a holy war? [misquoted Palin]
"Charles Gibson of ABC News was out for blood and inherently applied
a double-standard compared with the kid gloves George Stephanopoulos
used on Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois on Sunday night.
Gibson was out to embarrass Palin and expose her presumed ignorance from the word go. "
"While it's true that Governor Palin is of less stature than Mr. Gibson,
the deliberate choice of the camera's height, framing and the use of
telephoto lenses all serve to make Mr. Gibson look overpowering
and Governor Palin the weak prey. This is common shooting technique
we use to make a villain appear more ominous."
"Interesting choice of ties for Charlie.

Salesmanship 102 - When you face an adversary, and you seek to control them, wear red.

It should also be noted that Gibson was wrong when he was asking Gov. Palin about stem cell research. Although SP didn’t know the exact term, she was aware that great advances were being made using skin cells. Gibson wrongly told SP that all the researchers thought that only embryonic stem cells held any promise. The scientific news out of Canada recently proves that SP was right.
