CBS News has an extended version of the Sarah Palin interview on their website. This interview is truly a trainwreck. She attempts to talk about bipartisanship and the Wall Street bailout.

I had a really difficult time following what she was saying in most of the interview. It seems to me that she is really an Eliza program. An Eliza program is a computer program that provides responses to questions by rephrasing the question. The answers are nonresponsive, but just enough to make it seem like there may be artificial intelligence there. If you ever took  a Lisp programming course in college, you probably have written an Eliza program. Usually the programmer will give the Eliza program a personality. For example, you could write an Eliza program to be an annoying room mate, or you could write an Eliza program to behave like an unprepared vice presidential candidate.

Sarah Palin is a vice presidential candidate Eliza program. It is not surprising that the McCain campaign is trying to keep her away from the press.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
