Sarah Palin Rides The “No Talk” Express to Visit Fellow Celebrity Britney Spears

Not to jump on the pummel Palin bandwagon, BUT…a very keen observation was made yesterday. What is the governor’s deal with not talking to the press?? And why is the press sitting back and taking it? Access to our leaders by the press is one of the oldest and most important facets of American politics and society. Heck, the First Amendment makes freedom of the press on even par with freedom of religion. Then again, the Second Amendment seems of far greater importance to Sarah Barracuda anyway. (Which also begs the question: why aren’t the animal rights groups all of her for those photos of her with dying caribou???? Shoot to kill, not let an animal suffer).

But, back to the topic at hand. What is she so scared of that she won’t speak to the press? At some point, she has to start answering the tough questions. And it is totally preposterous for McCain/Palin to balk when they aren’t lobbed softball questions (ie: bailing on Larry King after a CNN reporter respectfully pushes on a legitimate question).

Taking the issue a step further, all of this has reduced Sarah Palin to no better than the hollow claim that McCain made about Senator Obama. Sarah Palin is a celebrity. Dare I say the word??? The proof is in the People. Instead of granting an interview with a serious journalistic institution right off the bat to introduce herself to the nation on Day 1, Sarah Palin and family pose with Senator McCain in something of a portrait (that makes McCain in the back look like grandpa) for People Magazine. No offense to People, but that is not a periodical anyone in his right mind would consider a hotbed of politcal discussion, debate and analysis.

What’s Governor Palin got to hide? Besides Troopergate. The bridge to nowhere. Her fanatical church. Earmarks. Inexperience and animal cruelty. Oh, wait…we got the last two in spades. And maybe it’s also that she doesn’t want to admit that when Senator Obama was apparently doing nothing as a community organizer and helping some of the nation’s poorest people in one of the largest cities in the Union, she was working as a TV sportscaster for one of the smallest.

Think I’m being too “liberal” or harsh? Prove me wrong! Please! I want to feel good about our government, no matter who wins. And I’m having a hard time when this woman of the people won’t speak to the people unless it’s in People. Come on. Even Britney Spears blogs to her public, so why can’t Governor Palin?
