Sarah Palin to Katie Couric “Well, you’re absolutely wrong, again, on the facts.”


Listen to the way that Sarah Palin refers to one of her best friends who happens to be a lesbian. This is a very good woman.


Couric: Your church sponsored a conference that claimed to be able to convert gays into heterosexuals through prayer. Do you think that gays can be converted, governor?

Palin: Well, you’re absolutely wrong, again, on the facts. My church, I don’t have a church, I’m not a member of any church. I get to visit a couple of churches in Alaska when I’m home, including one, Wasilla Bible Church, and that’s the one that you’re talking about.

Couric: Right. I think James Dobson’s group … had a convention or a meeting there. And your church…

Palin: No, I think they …

Couric: …supported it.

Palin: The Wasilla Bible Church had a flyer that was part of a bulletin or something …

Couric: But you know what? That doesn’t even matter. Let me just ask you the question.

Palin: Well, it matters, though, because, Katie, when the media gets it wrong, it frustrates Americans who are just trying to get the facts and be able to make up their mind on, about a person’s values. So it does matter …

Couric: …you’re correcting us.

Palin: But you are talking about, I think, a value here, what my position is on homosexuality and can you pray it away ’cause I think that was the title that was listed in that bulletin. And, you know, I don’t know what prayers are worthy of being prayed. And I don’t know what prayers are gonna be answered or not answered. But as for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships.

I have, one of my absolute best friends for the last 30 years who happens to be gay. And I love her dearly. And she is not my “gay friend.” She is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn’t a choice that I have made. But I am not gonna judge people. And I love America where we are more tolerant than other countries are. And are more accepting of some of these choices that sometimes people want to believe reflects solely on an individual’s values or not. Homosexuality, I am not gonna judge people.

Couric: You know, one thing that the press, and I appreciate your correcting that. And I’m gonna have to go back and see the (unintelligible) for that, that your church was …

Palin: I wish I had …

Couric: …sponsored it.

Palin: …time and the consistency to be a more regular attendee of a church but, no, have not.

    This is just an observation on my part.

    But I am struck by the number of times that Couric attempts to put words in Palin’s mouth.

    It’s almost as if Couric is not really listening to what Palin has to say, but interjecting her own world view, trying to steer the conversation.

    But Palin holds her own.

    This has to be very disconcerting for the interviewee.
