Katie Couric, Sarah Palin, and Camile Paglia

If you haven't seen it yet, here's America's (former) Sweetheart, Katie Couric, mocking Sarah Palin just moments after she was announced as John McCain's running mate. It didn't matter that Couric didn't know jacksh*t about Palin, all that mattered was that she was a Republican woman and a threat to the liberal hierarchy.

Anyway, for the uninitiated...roll tape:

But let's remember that this was not the last time Couric took potshots at Palin. Never one to learn a lesson - really, the media arm of the Democratic party is nothing if not intellectually flawless - she took some snark shots while speaking to students in
Princeton last year:

- "Coming here was a real no brainer! After all, I can see New Jersey from my house!"

Oh, how witty you are , Katie C.! Well, maybe in your own mind. But not in the minds of most Americans, who avoid you at 630P EST
like the plague:

Numbers for the week of July 26:
NBC - 7,440,000
ABC - 6,750,000
CBS - 4,980,000

But really, is there anything I can say about Katie that sharp-tounge feminist Camile Paglia has not
already said?

...let me take this opportunity to say that of all the innumerable print and broadcast journalists who have interviewed me in the U.S. and abroad since I arrived on the scene nearly 20 years ago, Katie Couric was definitively the stupidest. As a guest on NBC’s ‘Today’ show during my 1992 book tour, I was astounded by Couric’s small, humorless, agenda-ridden mind, still registered in that pinched, tinny monotone that makes me rush across the room to change stations whenever her banal mini-editorials blare out at 5 p.m. on the CBS radio network . And of course I would never spoil my dinner by tuning into Couric’s TV evening news show. That sallow, wizened, drum-tight, cosmetic mummification look is not an appetite enhancer outside of Manhattan or L.A. There’s many a moose in Alaska with greater charm and pizazz.”

Bottom line: Let's not fret about our little teleprompter monkey, Katie Couric. Nobody watches her, nobody respects her, and even those own her own side find her revolting.

Should've stuck with puff-pieces about colon exams, Katie....
