The News & Observer scored an “interview” with Sarah Palin, but if they’re printing the whole thing, it sure doesn’t amount to much. It reads as if she was leaning out of a moving car. The whole thing is 579 words (including the questions).

Highlight #1-

Q: Would you have supported the $11 billion federal tobacco buyout that passed Congress in 2005?

PALIN: “I don’t know enough about it to be able to answer that question.”

Highlight #2 –

Q: Are you prepared to be president of the United States?

PALIN: “I am. If we are so blessed to be elected in November and sworn in on Jan. 20, John McCain and I both are ready to serve Americans in the positions that we are running for, he as president, me as vice president. Heaven forbid if anything were to happen to him. But yes, my readiness it is there.”

Readiness indeed.
