First of all, I have serious issues with a woman her age being "Katie" - which is an appellation for a juvenile. Secondly, she is no journalist but rather a leftwing shill who is paid an inordinate amount of money for basically displaying her utter lack of talent! That gummy smirk wore thin the first time I was forced to look at her and her deeply rooted shallowness is unmistakeable.
Now we hear the tape in circulation which shows the brainless twit named Couric mocking the names of Sarah Palin's children.
There is also another tape in circulation that shows her mocking her predecessor - Dan Rather. Say what you will about Dan Rather (and I've been as critical and dismissive as anyone - of his journalistic behavior in recent years), but on his WORST day he is twice the pure newsman than Ms. Couric will ever be.
The 2008 video, taken from a raw satellite feed, shows Couric, wearing reading glasses, rehearsing some intros at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.
"Where the hell do they get these names?" she says while reading some copy about Palin's son, Track Palin. Just before that, Couric had mentioned then-four-month-old Trig Palin, the youngest of Palin's five children who was born with Down Syndrome.
Later in the video, Couric has some trouble with the correct pronunciation of Wasilla, Palin's hometown in
The video was shot a few weeks before Couric's often-testy sitdown with Sarah Palin, in which the Vice Presidential hopeful couldn't name a publication she read regularly.
