Sarah Palin on Fox: Trashes '60 Minutes' Show on Her She Hasn't Seen
Palin shot back at Schmidt, though she hadn't actually seen the interview. "I hadn't seen the 60 Minutes thing," she said. "I had been warned, you know, don't watch. It's a bunch of B.S. from Schmidt and from some of those guys."
Was it a lie, asked O'Reilly, if she hadn't known the difference between North and South Korea? "Yeah, that is a lie," Palin said, suggesting that the authors of the book Game Change, who made the claim, were "the same people who come up with the conspiracy theories... with the tin foil hats and all that."
Asked to comment on a variety of recent news clips, Palin used her trademark circular reasoning, occasionally peppered with confusing personal details. Regarding recent statements from U.S. Sen Majority Leader Harry Reid, for instance, called racist by most political analysts, Palin began to talk about her own background.
"I come from a diverse state," Palin said. "And I married a native Alaskan." She said Democrats were letting Reid's comments "slide" while they had no problem "crucifying" Trent Lott for his own racist statements. "I don't believe that he's a racist. But I don't believe that Trent Lott was a racist, either," she said.
But in the end, what does she think about all the criticism directed at her? "The rest of America doesn't care about that crap." Tuesday night proved that Palin's "straight" talk will fit nicely into the FOX News puzzle.
