Katie Couric mocks Sarah Palinís children
The Hill- Pundits Blog ^ | 8/4/2010 | Bernie Quigley

Katie Couric, whose real name is Katherine Anne Couric, mocked the names of Sarah Palin’s children during a rehearsal in her studio. Her comments, made during the 2008 presidential campaign, are being discussed in the blogosphere today after being leaked.

“Where the hell do they get these names from?” she asked, referring to Palin children Trig and Track, sending her crew into peals of laughter.

I have some new names for CBS. In a tragedy in Louisiana this Monday, six young teenagers drowned.

Their names were: Takeitha, JaMarcus, JaTavious, Litrelle, LaDairus and Latevin.

These, like the names of Palin’s children, are American names.

Times have changed since Jews newly arrived from Europe named their boys either Marty or Bernie and black people in the South named their kids either Bessy or Washington. You don’t really want to go into things like where the hell a name like Katherine got a K on the front of it instead of a C, as it was spelled in the tradition. The neurosis could drag all the way back to Prague, say, in the 1600s.

The singular feature of America that persists west of 57th Street, where “Katie” and CBS live in paralysis, acting out an early-’60s fantasy equal to that of “Mad Men,” is that we Americans are born free and find and take that freedom in every generation.

In terms anthropologists like Mircea Eliade and Sir James George Fraser would use, you could say we chop down the father’s tree in every generation; an archetypal reenactment of George Washington chopping down the cherry tree to free us from our pasts — European, personal and otherwise — and their anchors to the prisons of orthodoxy and tradition.

In this regard we plant our own tree and we take our own names. It is sacred and symbolic. And in this sacred act we name our kids any damn thing we please.

...One might say that Barack Hussein Obama, or Barack Hussein Obama (Saebarkah), or Barack Hussein (Saebarkah) Soetoro, or Barry Obama, or whatever that guy's name is, is a weird name as well. But I digress.

That video was posted on FR earlier this morning. It’s much to do about nothing.

She mocked their names, which are, in fact, highly mockworthy.

Couric is an airhead but this is a waste of time. We’ve all made fun of Obama and everything else under the sun, and I’m a huge Palin fan but have asked myself the same question. (Now I know the answer!)

Well, I don’t mock the names of Sarah’s kids but they are strange...but then there are a ton of strange names.

Where is it written that your kid has to be named Elizabeth or John?

Gee thanks Katherine, for reminding me why I hate you liberals so much!

Couric couldn’t run a lemonade stand.

One of the great things about liberalism is that their quality is so low that Couric actually is thought of as one of their “intellects”.

I’ll take Palin over the Katie-bimbo anyday... and will happily match my intellectual and work success credentials with ANY liberal ANY time since they love to think they actually have any discernible talent.

What a dishonest article title. Well this is about the fifth or sixth story about this. More pity party for poor Sarah. Man and you all think she is ready for President when she cries every day about how mean people are to her. She needs to grow up or at least stop being so emotional. I will give her a Pity Party. That is what I give my children when they complain.

"...One might say that Barack Hussein Obama, or Barack Hussein Obama (Saebarkah), or Barack Hussein (Saebarkah) Soetoro, or Barry Obama, or whatever that guy's name is, is a weird name as well."

But he sings all the right hymns to the choir from the Leftist hymnal.

That's all that determines who's accepted and who's savaged.

Katie is oblivious to the fact that she owes her "success" entirely to being a loyal tool.

As the name is of Greek origin, I'd say the K version is the original

One of the non-est non-stories in weeks.

Party on, Katie.

I suspect that had Katie Couric been around during the days of the Salem Witch Hunts, she would have been the hunted, rather than the hunter.

George-I got a great name for our kid. You wanna hear it? *whistles*
Susan- What is that? Sign language?
George- Seven.
Susan- Seven? That’s not a name. It’s a number.
G- It’s Micky Mantel’s number... (edit)

G- Well, that’s the name!
Susan- Oh no, it is not! No child of mine is ever going to be called Seven.
G- Let’s not get into panic mode here!

LOL. It’s NOT Sarah doing the complaining, so please throw yourself the pity party, since you’re the one crying.

I'll bet she knows all too well which side her bread is buttered on.
