Not ready for primetime

You want a hint how unprepared Sarah Palin is for the the national stage?
Rick Davis, campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., just told Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace that McCain running mate Gov. Sarah Palin won't subject herself to any tough questions from reporters "until the point in time when she'll be treated with respect and deference."
What happened to Sarah Barracuda, the pit bull in lipstick?

Can someone tell me the last time the national media treated a politician with respect and deference? Maybe Hillary Clinton can answer that one.

The thinness of this excuse reflects just how unprepared Palin is for an outing where she can't rely on a script.

Would this be the same standard she would employ, if elected, before dealing with Mahmud Ahmadinejad and Vladimir Putin?
