That’s right, Governor Palin joins us to talk about her book “America by Heart.” We’ve all been looking forward to this and I’m thrilled to have her back on the show.
I’ve received lots of emails about her comments on Hannity and yes, I will ask her about that as well.
As you all know, normally I tape the Wednesday show in the morning for air during its regular time, but today’s show will be live. So here’s the deal–I will be taping the interview with Palin at 10am PT, and will play it twice in the live show, 11am-1pm PT, once in both hours.
So don’t miss the live show and TAMs–jump into the TAM Chat! See you then.
UPDATE: The interview was great, and below is a public podcast for all. Here is also a transcript of her comments addressing the Hannity interview and what would affect a decision to run for the presidency:
“What I’m saying is if, within the hierarchy, again those self-proclaimed movers and shakers and the pickers of the winners and losers in a political primary especially – if they keep making it so difficult on good, average Americans with some commonsense solutions, if they make it so difficult, virtually impossible to run for office, then that’s going to be the death of the GOP and they need to wake up and realize that. It’s going to keep good people from running for office. If a candidate maybe isn’t equipped in terms of being able to handle the darts and the arrows that they, within the GOP itself, will start aiming at these candidates they’re going to keep good people from running for office. Now I’m thankful that I’ve had 20 years of growing some thick skin and having taken on the good old boys from a local level on up to big oil company industry players on up to a Governor’s office and now on a national stage where, you know, they’re not going to get me to sit down and shut up if I believe it’s the right thing to do in running for President I am going to do so. But these GOPers who think that they have their thumb on the pulse of America, and they’re going to tell us, instead of allowing competition that can breed success, if they’re going to tell us who it is that can surface as an ideal candidate through a primary without letting the process work, then they’re going to keep some really good people from running for office.”
