CNN via AOL: Palin Goes After Media at GOP Dinner (Update Polls Galore With This One)

Palin Goes After Media at GOP Dinner

In a little-noticed speech to a GOP dinner in Alaska last week, Palin riffed for nearly an hour on a variety of topics — including her relationship with former McCain staffers, the Bush administration's anti-terror efforts, and actress Ashley Judd.

But the Alaska governor returned multiple times to the "unprecedented level of media slant" that she witnessed during her two-months on the Republican ticket with John McCain.

Later in the speech, she told a story about praying for strength before last October's Vice Presidential debate with Joe Biden in St. Louis.

"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," she said. "And the McCain campaign, love 'em, you know, they're a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray." As the crowd laughed, Palin grinned and said she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign. She said she ultimately prayed with her daughter Piper.



Overall the article wasn't too bad for CNN.

Update:

Interesting take here:

How has your impression of Palin changed since the election?
It has gotten worse 38%
It has gotten better 33%
It has stayed the same 29%

I am going to have to call Jason to see if he has pictures of the event.
