Because I'm part of the gotcha-journalism-loving, no-ethics having media elite

Watching Sarah Palin's performance with katie couric (not being able to name a newspaper or magazine or cite a supreme court case that she disagrees with) I am coining this phrase ... Sarah Palin doesn't blink, she blanks!

Btw, Howard Kurtz points out in the Washington Post today that ...

In an exchange last night that was replayed on several networks, Couric, after a question about Roe v. Wade, asked Palin what other Supreme Court decisions she disagreed with.

"Well, let's see," Palin said, smiling and stalling for time. "There's -- of course -- in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, that's never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are -- those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know -- going through the history of America, there would be others but --"

Asked again, Palin answered without naming a ruling. Surprisingly, she failed to mention the court's June decision to slash the punitive damages awarded to those whose livelihoods were affected by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in
Prince William Sound, which Palin denounced at the time.
