My head almost exploded listening to this and I will be excited to see Nate Silver's reaction to Zeigler new work, "Media Malpractice..".

"Quite absurb was my inteperatation of what was being said about me..."

during the election campaign.

My favorite quote "They (the media) would have loved me if I was Obama's VP candidate..."

Palin starts off by again blaming bloggers for spreading "things that are not true."

She continues to talk about Zeigler's documentary, and how she was attacked and lies, and implicitly blames that Obama. As she continues to re-write history like her republican predecessors on the campaign and her interviews.

She "never saw" the final Katie Couric interview. If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in Alaska...She attackes the "media elite" for not treating her "right". I wonder who does treat her right, the liar Ziegler?

I guess she also thinks she was running for senator not VP by comparing herself to Caroline Kennedy, and that she was running for national office, not being appointment for a Senate seat.

It's also apparent that she blames the media for her downfall...She probably forget it was the risen she rose in the first place, but who cares about that?

"I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope," Palin told conservative filmmaker John Ziegler during an interview Monday for his upcoming documentary film, "How Obama Got Elected." Excerpts from the interview were posted on YouTube Wednesday evening...

Looking back on the Couric interviews, Palin said she knew things were not going well after their first session and asked the McCain campaign to pull the plug on the remaining sit downs but insisted the campaign made her go through with the rest....

"I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that. And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more?" she said. "Because of however it works in that upper echelon of power brokering in the media and with spokespersons, it was told to me that, yeah, we are going to go back for more. And going back for more was not a wise decision either."

She also expressed frustration with Couric’s characterization of her since the interviews. After being shown a clip of Couric complaining to David Letterman that no post-election interviewer has asked Palin why she would not tell the CBS anchor what newspapers she reads, the Alaska governor responded: "Because, Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe."

The whole thing is amazing to watch. She lives in alternate reality. It's very funny, yet very scary. There is no doubt that she wants to be a national player and I personally can't wait. Another dandy is her saying her treatment shows a lot about "our society." Yes, it shows we are scared of people like you, thank god...

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.
