Sarah Palin: Voracious Reader

Seriously, folks. Even Tina Fey doesn't make Sarah Palin look this daffy. Katie Couric asks "What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?" Straightforward enough, right? Still, Couric really had to press to make headway with this one.

Palin's eventual answer? "Alaska isn't a foreign country where it's kind of suggested it seems like, 'Wow,how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington DC may be thinking and doing when you live up there in Alaska?' Believe me: Alaska is like a microcosm of America."

And no, she never mentioned a single title.
