This is the clip of the video he posted, watch and listen:
After her introduction to public life thanks to the McCain’s movers and shakers, she does have a legitimate concern when it comes to run for President. After all the trashing she went through, she was quite uptight with the media (with good reason) and very apprehensive because as a VP candidate, she could not control her message. The message was fed, tweaked and many times, tucked under the carpet and was controlled to the point where she didn’t feel free-she had to be on script. Hence, the word “shackled” during this interview.
It is a life changing decision, but the best way she will feel comfortable is to have some reassurance that she controls the message.
Governor Palin is determined to deliver her message to the people on how she would handle the current events in the Oval Office; Sarah knows that she cannot control the media, but she will make sure that her message will be strong enough to resonate with what I call the “30-second audience”.
The “30-second audience” could care less about politics but don’t want Obama in the White House or are undecided, and another portion of that “30-second audience” should spend those seconds (and more) to see Governor Palin for what she really is, and what she’s accomplished throughout her life.The complete interview about this topic with Greta is at HotAir.

This is poll-worthy. I have never conducted a poll before, but is interesting that I haven’t seen one around in the blogosphere that I know of. So here it goes. Someone (or some organization) has fed the media with some bait; they’re fishing for anything that could damage Sarah Palin.
There’s two things I want to throw out there. One: If Sarah Palin does the media rounds, what are they gonna ask her? I mean, they got all the answers already!Two: Will the final GOP official candidate (if it’s not Sarah) get the same
This is not a bunch of frantic people in Florida trying to get into the room where the trial for murder of Caylee Anthony is taking place. This is a bunch of journalists, photographers are trying to get into an elevator in Juneau to cover the release of Sarah Palin‘s emails.

About 30 journalists, along with three TV camera crews, had been crammed into a small space in a state administrative building in Juneau on Friday, waiting for the release of boxes filled with 25,000 printed emails stemming from Palin’s tenure as governor.
Nearby, the boxes were stacked up and waiting for representatives of approximately 20 news organizations to grab them and take them from the building in a scene that promised to be fairly chaotic. Each organization was to be given six boxes
“It could be fun,” said the Los Angeles Times‘ Ken Schwenke, who was part of the scrum waiting to rush the room where the boxes were stacked. The state of Alaska is releasing the emails in paper form; several news organizations are scanning them to turn them into electronic, searchable documents.

It reminds me of the same media, landing by droves in 2008 to find out more about Sarah Palin and figure out who she was, where she came from and anything and everything about her life. Commenters in The Guardian, Washington Times and Los Angeles Times are getting angrier at this waste of time, to uncover anything that may compromise Sarah Palin and attempt to damage her character and reputation (as if!).
This is enough, America. The same time of scrutiny and vetting is not of interest of any of Republican official candidates for the GOP primaries, nor of Senator Obama‘s emails and his background. Media’s unprecedented addiction and obsession rivals Twilight fans.
Twilight fans drive and fly wherever the movie stars travel, duck and use binoculars to catch any scenes of any movies they make (asides from the saga) and the frustration when there’s extreme lockup and secrecy with their location. Fans tweet and post in Facebook any pictures of their stars, tired from the airport.
Where’s the GOP? Oh mum. Establishment is relaxed waiting for the media to do the dirty deed for them. Keep it up, media! Keep it up, GOP!
This just keeps getting better and better:
About 30 journalists, along with three camera crews, had been crammed into a small space in a state administrative building in Juneau, Alaska Friday, waiting for the release of boxes filled with 25,000 printed emails stemming from Sarah Palin‘s tenure as governor.
The boxes were stacked up and waiting for the 20 or so news organizations to grab them and take them from the building in a scene that promised to be fairly chaotic.
“It could be fun,” said the Los Angeles Times‘ Ken Schwenke, who was part of the scrum waiting to rush the room where boxes upon boxes were stacked. The state of Alaska is releasing the emails in paper form, which means that news organizations will have to scan them to turn them into electronic, searchable documents. Each organization was to be given six boxes.
There’s an actual timeline on their work, how hard they’re working on the stack of emails; they’re scanning all of them and then release some of them. Still complaining that they believe the juiciest ones are kept under wraps.
