Palin's Fox Debut on O'Reilly: Just Another Worn-Out Campaign Speech
- Last night (1/12/09) was the debut of Sarah Palin's Fox News gig on The O'Reilly Factor - and . . . wait, what the hell happened to the cutesy Palin we saw on the campaign trail, the one with the winks, and the snappy (scripted) comebacks, and the ($35,000) make-up and flirty manner? All I saw last night was a woman with pursed lips, tense as a coiled wire, nervous as a cat, stumbling all over herself and, well, not any smarter, that's for sure. But O'Reilly wasn't about to treat her like a star - he's the king of Fox, and aims to stay that way. Her lack of confidence and uncertainty was glaring from get, but it didn't get any better when she figured out that O'Reilly was actually going to conduct a (gasp) interview, and, whatever his motives, hold her feet to the fire from time to time. Where, oh where, are Palin-love-festers Sean Hannity and Greta van Susteren when she needs 'em? With video.
