When Laura Ingraham put the question forward to Palin, she seemed to demure more than just a little bit. But you know who's fault it really was that she was reluctant to say yes:
Oh my goodness. You know, it depends on what the venue would be, what the forum. Because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I’ll get clobbered because, you know, they don’t want to listen to the facts. They don’t want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.
Isn't this woman something, she can quit before something even happens. Such leadership qualities are precisely what conservatives are looking for.
I'm reminded of the Vice Presidential debate last year when Joe Biden really didn't perform all that spectacularly and simply let Palin just prattler her way into infamy. I'm sure that the speculative Gore v Palin debate would be no greater achievement for her. After all, there's only so much "winky-doncha-know" rhetoric that will support her unscientific thesis that climate change isn't such a problem.
