Sarah Palin's Debut As TV Commentator
A fiesty Sarah Palin makes her debut as a TV comentator on the Fox News channel. Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor Tuesday night, she didn't waste any time going after her detractors.
"The rest of America doesn't care about that kind of crap," said Palin.
The main target of her ire was former McCain-Palin campaign manager Steve Schmidt, who told 60 Minutes that Palin thought Saddam Hussein was behind the 9/11 attacks, didn't know the difference between North and South Korea, and didn't know who her son would be fighting in Iraq.
Pailn said, "I hadn't seen the 60 Minutes thing. I had been warned, you know, don't watch. It's a bunch of bs from Schmidt."
Palin also denied Schmidt's claim that she was "overwhelmed" and "ill prepared" for the debate with Senator Joe Biden during the 2008 Presidential campaign.
Schmidt said on 60 Minutes, "The debate was going to be a debacle of historic and epic proportions."
O'Reilly said to Palin, "He's obviously saying that you were in chaos preparing for the debate. Is that true?"
Palin replied, "That is not true. And Steve Schmidt told us how overjoyed he was after the debate."
