In a campaign speech in Florida, Sarah Palin said that her recent gaffes such as being unable to recall which publications she reads or any of the non-Roe vs Wade Supreme Court verdicts she disagrees with, were a ploy to keep Saturday Night Live going.
Palin said that her inability to answer the questions were due to frustration at their triviality. Referring to the CBS Katie Couric interview she asserts that she was impatient with not being asked about the important issues.
She said "I should have told them was I was just trying to keep Tina Fey in business, just giving her more information. Job security for SNL characters."
