Weekly Standard Interview with Sarah Palin

By on 7.10.09 | 12:23PM

The Weekly Standard website has up a piece by Matthew Continetti that includes parts of an interview with Sarah Palin. She discusses some of the issues that prompted her to resign and her plans for the future. The explanations she gives are the same ones that she cited in her now-famous resignation speech. It's an interesting interview, but it seems a bit too much like PR -- Continetti doesn't ask tough questions, and includes a lengthy survey of Palin's meteoric career that's mostly apologetics. The takeway from the article is that there are no other factors that led Palin's resignation that are not already on the record.

We'll see. Somehow I don't feel fully reassured.
