  • It’s Official: Palin Ignores Sunday Talk Shows

    This Sunday, November 2, is the final Sunday before Tuesday’s highly anticipated presidential election. Gov. Sarah Palin has thus far opted not to participate in what has become a campaign ritual: Interviews on the various Sunday talk show programs.

    Well, all of the major Sunday talk shows — NBC’s “Meet the Press,” CNN’s “Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer,” Fox’s “Fox News Sunday,” ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and CBS’s “Face the Nation” — have now announced their weekend lineups and none were able to land an interview with the Alaska governor, just days before the election.

    It should be noted: The last vice presidential candidate to avoid NBC’s “Meet the Press” — long a ratings and gravitas champ among its competitors — was…

    Dan Quayle.
