Palin/Couric Interview Bombshell

Posted: Updated:

In what may be the most damaging of the slow but sure dissemination of the CBS News Katie Couric interview with Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice Presidential nominee was unable to name all of her kids' names.

Transcript follows:

Katie Couric: And when it comes to establishing your family view, I was curious: What are the names you use when you want to speak to your children?
Sarah Palin: I've spoke with most of them, again with a great appreciation for my children, my family, for the younger people who live with me.
Katie Couric: But, like, what ones specifically? I'm curious.
Sarah Palin: All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years.
Katie Couric: Can you name a few?
Sarah Palin: I have a vast variety of children and of course, they all have names. My family isn't a foreigner's family, where, it's kind of suggested and it seems like, 'Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of what children in Washington, D.C. may be named when you live up there in Alaska?' Believe me, my Alaskan family is like a microcosm of most American's families. Did I mention, Katie, that I can see many of my children from my house?

In other VP debate updates, Democratic VP nominee, Joe Biden, offered kinescope evidence of President Franklin Roosevelt calming American's fears at the start of the depression. Also, before the debate tonight, watch as world champion limbo dancer, Ben Dover, attempts to get under the bar set for Palin.
