Reeding iz hard werk.

Not the person you want with their finger on the big red button:

Palin: 'I'm A Lover Of Books And Magazines And Newspapers,' And I Was Annoyed With Katie Couric

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Palin explained her infamous gaffe from the 2008 campaign, when Katie Couric asked what newspapers and magazines she reads, and Palin responded that she reads "all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years." And Palin said that she was annoyed at someone asking about what people in Alaska read.

"Now obviously, you've read books and magazines," said Winfrey. "Why didn't you just name some books or magazines?"

"Well, and obviously [sic] I have of course all my life read. I'm a lover of books and magazines and newspapers," said Palin. "By the time she asked me that question, even though it was kind of early on in the interview, I was already so annoyed, and it was very unprofessional of me to wear that annoyance on my sleeve."

I'm imagining a Palin presidency right now:

"So, Mrs. President, out of curiosity, what do you like to read?"

"What do I like to read? What do I like to read? You're asking me if I know how to fucking read?! Of course I can read, books and magazines, and books also, too! You don't think I can fucking read!?!? Well, let me show you what I think of that. There! I just nuked Bangkok. You want some more of that!? Fucking read, you betcha! Also, too."

Yeah, that's pretty much how it would play out.
