Lipstick Grants Interview

ABC's Charlie Gibson got the first crack at interviewing Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin. When asked about national security, as President George W. Bush made the world more dangerous, Palin deflected. She substituted her energy experience.

Charlie missed the follow up. "So energy is the reason for our security policy? Does that mean we invaded Iraq for oil?"

I'm sure Sarah would've diverted that question as well. "We have lots of oil in Alaska. Sometimes, we spill a wee bit. Did you know the Exxon Valdez spilled 11,000 gallons of fuel?"

Gibson would botch his second opportunity for follow up, failing to cite the 10.8 million gallons of crude oil spilled by the Valdez.

"But you're an energy expert and capable of keeping the nation safe?" noted Charlie.

"Yes, I am," said Sarah between snorts.
