Palin on Krauthammer
Via Real Clear Politics: Sarah Palin Knocks Krauthammer: "Sorry That I’m Not Hoity-Toity" (video at link).
I have to agree with Jonathan S. Tobin at Commentary:
Her response was vintage Palin, combining a sort of schoolyard banter with bristling resentment. “Oooh. Sorry that I’m not so hoity-toity,” was the best she could come up with as a retort while gesturing that she was not someone who had to put her finger in the air to determine what to think, as if the intellectual yet down-to-earth conservative sage Krauthammer was some liberal media consultant. Just as disturbing as the obnoxiousness of her response was the vague thought that perhaps she’s not quite sure who exactly Krauthammer is.
In fairness to Palin, the “hoity-toity” line was not directly aimed at Krauthammer, even though the question O’Reilly asked did have a linkage to the thesis of the Krauthammer column he reference at the beginning of the segment.
Upon watching the beginning twice, I have to agree with Tobin (who, btw, describes himself as someone who is “inclined to judge her more favorably than much of the chattering class”) that she does come across as perhaps unclear as to whom Krauthammer is.
