Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

ABC will interview Sarah Palin later this week ABC News' Gibson lands first Palin interview

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis complained that the media has focused too much on 44-year-old Palin's personal life. Many of those stories came after McCain's campaign announced that Palin's unwed 17-year-old daughter was pregnant. News reports also have questioned her record as a reformer in Alaska.

"She's not scared to answer questions," Davis said on "Fox News Sunday." ''But you know what? We run our campaign, not the news media. And we'll do things on our timetable."

I think what the Republicans are trying to avoid is having Sarah "Potatoed."  If you remember the media never let Dan Quayle live down his mistake over the spelling of potato in a spelling bee. The mainstream liberal media can forgive Obama his mistakes and misspeaks, but has little tolerance for a conservative making a minor error.
