Sarah Palin on Katie Couric's CBS exit: 'I read that in a newspaper'

Palin Katie Couric, you can rest assured: Sarah Palin is still reading newspapers!

The former vice presidential candidate, and Fox News contributor, appeared Wednesday in a segment of "On the Record With Greta Van Susteren" and mockingly sent well wishes to the retiring evening news anchor. Couric announced Tuesday she was leaving "CBS Evening News" to focus on more "multidimensional storytelling."

"I think I read that in a newspaper, one of many newspapers that I read online," Palin said. "Yes, and I hear that she wants to now engage in more multidimensional storytelling versus, I guess, just the straight-on read into that teleprompter screen storytelling. So more power to her. I wish her well with her multidimensional storytelling."

You'll recall, prior to the 2008 presidential election, Couric conducted a series of interviews with Palin, including one notorious question about which specific newspapers she read daily.

Show Trackers, what do you think of Palin's adieu to Couric?

That's wicked. Wild, winsome, wonderful Barracuda gives a nip to wan, woeful. washed-up Perky as Perk circles the drain. Priceless!

Blah, blah, blah. Does anyone truly care what a failed, half-term governor thinks?

Sadly, too many.

Somebody's still upset that she's not Vice President, which I'm sure she figures is pretty much everyone in the world's fault except for her own.

Pathetic and utterly without class.

C'mon! Seriously? Is this Palin woman retarded? Do people actually WATCH this garbage? Okay, I'm remembering the old saying "if you can't say something nice ..." - Sarah DOES have nice skin. And Greta's face looks less grotesquely crooked than usual!

Is it her hair? Is it her eyebrows? Not her brain. Not her thought process. Why do we care about what she has to say? Sure this story was in a newspaper. And probably on Fox.com, or whatever their website is. She is a unread and was uncaring of the issues until she was thrust into the spotlight. Katie will always do much better than Ms. Sarah. No matter what Sarah reads.

Couric asked a perfectly legitimate question, which Sarah was unable to answer. Rather than take personal responsibility for her shortcomings, Sarah has been castigating Couric. For her part, Katie has been classy in response to Palin's diatribes. By her comments now, Sarah continues to show us that she is a bitter, mean-spirited loser. Katie, I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

Sarah Palin can READ??!!?!

Yeah - that's right - one can tend to forget. She and her buddies still maintain Palin's looking stupid when she couldn't even INcompetently answer basic questions was all Couric's fault.

I'm willing to bet $10 she's even lying here, and she DIDN'T read it in the paper. May have seen it in a tweet, or had one of her sycophants tell her, or she got an email, or she heard about it on TV. But I'll wager cash she didn't actually learn about it in a newspaper.

The most shrill and petty woman on the planet.

Go away, Sarah. And who's taking care of those kids anyway?

Who is that Greta dude?

she makes me ill and bores all of us to tears....by us, I mean the people in america with a brain. Her comments mean nothing about anything.

Did she ever get back to KC with that list of publications? If she did I must have missed it.

Everyone knows Sara can't read. Ever notice how she criticizes people that use teleprompters. It's a defense mechanism to throw people off. Think about it, have you ever seen her read anything? Bet she uses I can't find my glasses a lot!!!

And why the statement "I think I read that in a newspaper, one of the many newspapers I read online". Is she trying to impress someone? Only Sara can read a newspaper online. Most other people read the news online. What an idiot! In an attempt to appear sophisticated she she unknowingly buffoned it yet again.

And the magazine would be "My Weekly Reader", no doubt.

Once an idiot...

she probably had one of her kids read it to her....we all know she hates to read anything.....unless it's about her.....

sounds like she's running...

Who cares what Sarah Palin has to say? She does not speak for me or for the USA. She quit her government job as she could make more money as a "celebrity" of reality shows. She is a grifter and a con woman. I do not listen to quitters and the president does not have to tell her what he is doing. She is not on any list to be informed by the president about anything this government does. She is a motormouth full of sound and fury signfying nothing.

I think Palin's comments are reflective of her in general. She is a little person, with no intelligence, who speaks only to amuse herself and her brainless followers. I wonder if they bothered to ask her which newspaper she read it in? She probably couldn't answer that question either.

anyone notice when she held up her hand there were cheat notes written on her palm?
