Palin: I should have talked to the press more.

As she accepted her award as Conservative of the Year, no seriously that's what they have just awarded her, Sarah Palin mused on what was the biggest mistake of the 2008 election.

GIZZI: What was the biggest mistake made in the ’08 campaign?

The biggest mistake made was that I could have called more shots on this: the opportunities that were not seized to speak to more Americans via media. I was not allowed to do very many interviews, and the interviews that I did were not necessarily those I would have chosen.

But I was so thankful to have the opportunity to run with John McCain that I was not going to argue with the strategy decisions that some of his people were making regarding the media contacts.

But if I would have been in charge, I would have wanted to speak to more reporters because that’s how you get your message out to the electorate.
So, the woman who participated in some of the worst car crash TV interviews of the entire electoral cycle thinks things would have worked out better if she had done more interviews?

The ignorance she displayed during the interviews she did was breathtaking, indeed, it was enough to turn her into a national joke. And she thinks she should have done more of them?

I really hope conservatives keep her front and centre of any future Republican campaigns. Nothing will do more to ensure Obama's re-election than that.
