Tucker Bounds has nothing to say to Campbell Brown

It was wonderful. Last night, CNN's Campbell Brown ripped Tucker Bounds, McCain's mouthpiece, up one side and down the other. All he could do is look embarrassed, flick his eyes and sputter.

Brown talked about how McCain's is always blathering as to the importance of national security and she asked Tucker about that: How does Sarah Palin fit into McCain's national security concern? What about Palin's foreign policy experience?

Bounds had nothing to say except that she was wonderful and the right choice, blah, blah, blah. But Ms. Brown wouldn't let go! "You're not answering my question...you set a different standard..."

Bounds, with nowhere to go, settled on her experience as commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard.

So Brown said, "...tell me one decision that she made in her capacity as commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard."

Bounds mumbled about how she decides how to equip and how to command and deploy the national guard.

Brown just about laughed in his face. No governor makes those kinds of decisions!

Brown kept pushing. Just one decision. Tell me ONE decision!

But Bounds couldn't. And finally, when there was nothing more to say, when Bounds could not name even so much as one little, bitty decision that Palin made as commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard, Brown cut him off...which, in reality, was an act of kindness.

So much for Palin's foreign policy experience!

what is the deal with journalists today?

Any question that begin with, "Can you name one..." I can't take it...

Palin is the Command in Chief of the Alaskan National Guard. That is the answer to her question. Did she really expect him to name an instance in which she called them into action? Why? What does it prove? Nothing, it is gotcha journalism and it is sickening.

It is getting silly! McCain shot from the hip and made his choice for VP. Now he and we have to live with it. There will be more to be uncovered and more excuses to be made. McCain will still get lots of votes just as Bush did, in spite of all logic.
We had better start praying faster and louder and vote!!!!
