Fast Times at Wasilla High

Sarah Palin played the slacker with her non response to Katie Couric's question on Supreme Court decisions. Her freezing on the question continued her campaign of gaffes. Politico cited the latest:

The Palin aide, after first noting how "infuriating" it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions.

After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.

Here’s what’s odd. Just seven months ago, Governor Palin was on CSPAN’s Washington Journal. At the 3:30 mark, Steve displayed that morning’s lead article in the Washington Post, titled “Exxon Oil Spill Case May Get Closure.” The byline was “Almost 20 Years after Valdez Wreck, Justices to Weigh In.” Sarah’s reply included:

“Finally 19 years later, in front of the Supreme Court asking for justice. And the frustration that we have in Alaska after so many years of waiting for this damages to be paid by Exxon, of course at fault for the spill with a drunken captain that ran the Exxon Valdez ship into Bligh Reef and spilled 11,000 gallons of fuel…..I’m thankful that finally on Wednesday we’re in front of the Supreme Court to argue our side.”

So the energy expert, Governor of Alaska doesn’t remember her involvement in that key Supreme Court decision on punitive damages. Also, she missed the size of the spill by 10.79 million gallons of crude. Does anyone else see a pattern?
