Palin in Car Crash TV with O'Reilly.

Bill O'Reilly puts Palin on the spot and exposes the fact that she really has no idea what she is talking about.

First, [O'Reilly] challenged Palin by saying, “49% of Americans still want BP to run the show and only 45% want the government to run the show.”

If you stop the video at about the 3:00 point, you can see the look of dismay on Palin’s face, followed by nervousness, moments after he said that, as she must have realized this was not going to be the kind of cakewalk she has probably come to expect on Fox News.

O’Reilly went on to ask, “What is your solution, here, Governor? What would you do tonight – tell the nation tonight, what you would have said, the main point in that speech. Go.”

Palin obviously had no idea. “Stopping the gusher,” she said. “That’s the number one priority of the nation.”

“But nobody knows how to do it,” O’Reilly countered.

“Well, we haven’t had the assurance by the president that that has been his top priority.” Her voice rose with more condescension, as she continued to evade the question and, instead, went on to accuse the president of making “cap and tax” his greater priority and “using this crisis… to increase the cost of energy.”

“Are you telling me that you don’t think the president’s top priority is stopping that leak? Is that what you’re telling me?” O’Reilly asked, not bothering to hide his incredulity.
He then asks her what she would do if she was in charge and it is clear within seconds that she has absolutely no idea what she is talking about.

As O’Reilly continued to press her to name whom Obama should turn to, she said, “The Dutch, they are known and the Norwegians. They are known for dikes and for cleaning up water.”

Poor Palin. All that money and backing and she still keeps making a fool of herself.

I have no idea whether O'Reilly set out to skewer her in this way, but he did manage to reveal her as nothing other than an ignorant partisan little hack. It's glaringly obvious that she can only talk in utterly meaningless sound bites.
