    she made it public knowledge that she did not find global warming real
    why should she not have been asked about that topic

    Its one of those 'do you believe in God' questions where the belief, and the positive response, is really the important part.
    I realize that the debate, at least to some, has taken on theological characteristics. However, she could easily have addressed the question using some of the arguments AGW opponents have used. One can find those in numerous threads here in the climate change section. For example, she could have argued that the warming has not been as great as the models had forecast. She could simply have argued that natural variability might explain much of the warming. That her positions would not be supported by most climate scientists would be irrelevant for her purposes. She would simply be explaining why she felt as she did.

    Are you seriously trying to suggest that asking a candidate about their positions is " gotcha politics".

    I would have probably walked out too, not before saying; "It doesn't matter where he was born considering his mother was a US citizen."

    All to frequently these progressive Journalists love to do noting but mock the non-democrat/progressive candidates in an intimidating manner,while when they interview progressives they give them nothing but "fluff questions" with a laughingly content smile.
    You know, that is probably true and if any of those people were in the least intelligent they could stand up such brutal attacks, but like Palin they fold like cheap umbrellas in the slightest breeze. That you would do like they says a lot.

    So, all she had to do is lie? If she did that then she'd have to run as a democrat.

    You mean lie 'I can see Russia from my back yard' or other similarly eloquent drivel?
    By the way, when did anyone look like an idiot other than Palin over that remark?

    How about this:

    Global Warming is not an issue I will vote to act on and because of that I will not be answering any questions regarding it.
