Fluffy - Sarah Palin's Best Wishes for Katie Couric

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/2011/04/28/2011-04-28_sarah_palin_takes_swipe_at_departing_cbs_news_anchor_katie_couric_i_read_that_in.html

It's a safe bet that Sarah Palin won't be attending Katie Couric's going away party.
The former Alaska governor sent some sarcasm-drenched best wishes to the departing CBS News anchor, who famously grilled Palin in a 2008 interview. The sitdown was widely interpreted as a devastating blow for the Republican vice presidential candidate, who came off as confused and ill-informed on foreign policy and the media

After five years at the helm of the ratings-challenged CBS Evening News, Couric is stepping down. Fox News host Greta Van Susteren asked Palin about Couric's exit on Tuesday.

"Yeah, I think I read that in a newspaper, one of the many newspapers that I read online," said Palin, apparently referencing the 2008 interview, in which she seemed unable to name a single publication she reads regularly.

Palin later blasted the liberal media for its "gotcha journalism."

She then mocked Couric, who recently told People Magazine that she's looking to do more "multi-dimensional storytelling."

"Yes, and I hear that she wants to now engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling, versus, I guess, just the straight-on read into that teleprompter screen storytelling," Palin said. "So, more power to her. I wish her well with her multi-dimensional storytelling."

What do we think of Sarah Palin's comments?

Classy? Deserved? Well played from a political standpoint (if she even has a political standpoint these days)?

I don't know if Sarah Palin has any political aspirations these days, but if she does, I think this was a poor move on her part. I had kind of forgotten about the Katie Couric interview, until this. I think it also paints her (SP) as petty - she's definitely not choosing to take the high road.

But I called it fluffy because I'm not sure how relevant SP even is anymore. Unless she is planning on running for something, who really cares what she has to say.

I hold certain people at the expectation level of 0. She's one of them.
