How dumb does this woman think we are? No “lover of books” would ever go on TV and try to prove to everyone that they are indeed lovers of books. Although it is a cool expression, I’m a lover of books myself:
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 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.”
Also I would like to know how to wear my annoyance on my sleeve, I think it would really suit me.
