A thing I've noticed:
Sarah Palin has now, in several interviews, used the following phrasing. In reference to which newspapers she reads, which constitutional rulings she disagrees with, and other completely non-essential issues:
Name me a specific case of X.
I can name you specific cases of X. You know, I think it's important in terms of X bla bla bla. So, you know, X.
And what specific case of X are you thinking about?
[At which point she says basically more of the same, and you scream in agony and close the window you were looking at.]
So she specifically says that she can name specific cases of whatever it is (newspapers, constitutional law cases. Y'know: elitist things), and then reveals that she can't. Anyway, watch for it. As Michael Bérubé says, it's like watching a student try to fake a term paper in real time. Which, btw, is exactly the feeling I got watching that "all under the umbrella of job creation"-answer, which Tina Fey repeated verbatim in the Saturday Night Live sketch.
