Think Moosolini Will Be Handed Softballs She Can Hit Out Of The Park?

Since the corporate media is allowing itself to be played like a cheap violin by the repugs, I'd ask, does a bear crap in the woods? And since Charles Gibson was hand picked to do the sit down it would be instructive to remember his stench from the Obama/Clinton debate last April:

"In perhaps the most embarrassing performance by the media in a major presidential debate in years, ABC News hosts Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos focused mainly on trivial issues as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama faced off in Philadelphia. They, and their network, should hang their collective heads in shame.
Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the health care and mortgage crises, the overall state of the economy and dozens of other pressing issues had to wait for their few moments in the sun as Obama was pressed to explain his recent "bitter" gaffe and relationship with Rev. Wright (seemingly a dead issue) and not wearing a flag pin -- while Clinton had to answer again for her Bosnia trip exaggerations.
Then it was back to Obama to defend his slim association with a former '60s radical -- a question that came out of right-wing talk radio and Sean Hannity on TV, but was delivered by former Bill Clinton aide Stephanopoulos. This approach led to a claim that Clinton's husband pardoned two other '60s radicals. And so on. The travesty continued.

The crowd booed Gibson near the end."

Here are a few questions for this woman that will keep you from being booed this time, Chuck.

* Gov. Palin, did you realize you were breaking the law when you came out against the Clean Water Initiative, when the governor cannot advocate on ballot measures?
* By the way, how can you square your environmental image with the fact that you voted against clean water when the initiative would keep arsenic from being dumped into rivers and streams?
* Did Pebble Mine, which does said dumping, slip any donations to you?
*Do you really think "national leaders send soldiers on tasks from god"?
*How can you dismiss alternative energies as being at least "a decade away" when you want ANWR drilled and oil from it would be at least a decade away?
*Why doesn't the hospital have any record of you delivering "your" son?
*Do you agree with your running mate that we could be in Iraq for 100 years?

We're waiting, Chuck.

My prediction for Chuck's first question of the governor: "You have become something of a sex symbol in the conservative blogosphere. How do you feel about that, and how does that square with your christian beliefs?", followed by mild guffaws among the candidates and other moderators, and a smug look of "oh, I'm so cheeky and clever" on Gibson's face.

I watched a little of the Q&A and am very interested in it's impact. ABC is milking it for what it's worth.
