James Rainey Has Questions For Sarah Palin

d2c54ab8-7b69-11dd-b839-000077b07658.jpgJame Rainey tackles the call for ‘deference’ in interviewing Sarah Palin. ‘Deference’ that you would use while interviewing a monarch or a child star.

He’s come up with come questions to ask the Veep Nominee:

* You asked the librarian in your town about the policy for banning books. Are there books you think should be kept from the public?

* You have claimed credit for killing the “bridge to nowhere,” the $398-million link between Ketchikan and Gravina Island. Didn’t you support it until it was clear Congress was not willing to pay for the much-ridiculed project?

* You have said students should be allowed to “debate both sides” of evolution. Should creationism be taught alongside evolution in the public schools? Do you believe in evolution?

Charles Gibson scored the first interview that will air Thursday night. Which reminds us of that old H.L. Mencken quote, “The only way a reporter should look at a politician is down.”
