Washington, Oct 7 : Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has declared that her less than successful recent TV interviews were just her attempt to keep Saturday Night Live show in business.
One of her more glaring flubs last week was her inability to name any publications she reads. This morning, she tried to turn that to her advantage at a campaign rally on Monday in Florida.
"Evidently, there's some interest in what I've been reading lately," she told a crowd in Clearwater.
"I think that this comes from - it's a result of a probably less than successful interview that I had recently with, kind of, mainstream media" - a quip that drew loud boos from the crowd, the Daily News reported.
"Yet, you know what? In response to critics after that interview what I should have told them was I was just trying to keep Tina Fey in business, just giving her more information," Palin said to loud applause. "Job security for SNL characters."
In one-on-one interview with CBS News Katie Couric, Palin also was unable to come up with any major Supreme Court verdicts she disagreed with, other that Roe vs. Wade. But she insisted today she just was annoyed by the trivial questions.
