The Toothless Barracuda?
So Sarah Palin is supposedly tough. But she won't subject herself to direct questions from the press. No, she's only available to interviewers like Oprah -- people who won't or can't challenge her.
Until Palin sits down for real interviews with real journalists, people should stop marveling at how "tough" she is. Anyone can stand on a stage making false claims about John McCain being a maverick. Let's see if this nobody who thinks she can be president can actually hold her own in a real, public discussion about foreign policy. Or domestic policy. Tough people aren't afraid of a little conversation.
