Sarah Palin made her first appearance as a contributor to Fox News on Bill O'Reilly's show. The whole transcript is here, and it is as you might expect.
But one particular section jumped out at me for some reason:
O'REILLY: Do you know Nancy Pelosi? Have you ever met her?
PALIN: I met her once in the Capitol building, yes.
O'REILLY: Yes? Did you have…
PALIN: She wouldn't remember me, but…
O'REILLY: She wouldn't — I think she'd remember you, Governor.
PALIN: No, no, no.
O'REILLY: But did you chat with her? Do you have any idea?
PALIN: Chatted with her a little bit, yes. She was leading a group of school children through on a tour. And I thought, well, that's nice that she has that time on her hands that she could do that.
O'REILLY: Yes, but the school children need to be led. You know that.
PALIN: Yes, that's what I'm saying. It was nice.
O'REILLY: Now, do you think that she's a kook?
PALIN: I think that she, too, is quite disconnected from what her constituents are telling her — and constituents all over the country.
O'REILLY: But she's a San Francisco liberal. But — but do you think she's actually crazy?
So Palin – a woman who quits her job as governor before her first term is out and takes a lucrative job at Fox – is mocking Speaker Pelosi who took the time to escort schoolchildren around the Capital Building. How nice.
And of course, all O'Reilly wants to know is whether that make Pelosi a crazy woman, or a kook.
