Much was made the last several days of Joe Miller's response to the question of whether Governor Palin is qualified to be president. The lamestream media blew the whole thing up because that's what they do. They love the thought of someone suggesting she can't deliver the goods. They took extra delight in this particular nontroversy because Miller is from her own state, a friend of Todd Palin, and she has bent over backwards to support him against Lisa Murkowski. So they exploited Miller's comments and thought they had something to run with. They were wrong, as usual, and their premature giddiness has been exposed once again. As Governor Palin said herself:
There's no "there, there" but the lamestream media will keep on tryin'. See: http://is.gd/fOc4X
Joe Miller cut the legs off of this in an interview with conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham when he answered that Governor Palin is obviously qualified to be president--not just constitutionally qualified either. He leaves no question that he believes no one--and that means no one--is doing for this country what she is doing right now.
And while you likely heard Joe Miller's earlier comments, chances are greater that you have not heard his recent comments in the lamestream media. And why is that? Josh Painter sums it up quite succinctly:
... but don't look for the lamestream media to give these remarks by Miller the same coverage they did his earlier comments, because what he says here doesn't fit their anti-Palin narrative.Surely you're not surprised at this selective reporting, are you?
