Henry Paulson on Palin rubbing him the wrong way

VAN SUSTEREN: In the book, you write that you got a phone call with candidate for vice president Sarah Palin and you said, these are your words, that she "rubbed you the wrong way." What happened?

PAULSON: Well, again, this was early on. It was the first conversation, and it was with candidate John McCain and Sarah Palin. And as I think back on it now, she was really right on the -- all of the hot button issues.

So she immediately focused on -- because we were talking about the need to come in and stabilize, put Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into conservatorship, these two huge financial institutions. And Sarah Palin immediately got to the point and asked what was going to happen to the CEOs. Were we going to replace them? Were they going to get golden parachutes? What was going to happen with the compensation?

So the only thing, the comment that I made really had to do with, she started calling me Hank right away. People know me, I'm the most informal person there is, so everyone at the treasury called me Hank. But I never met her before. I just assumed that that's what happens on the campaign trail as you're campaigning, it's a very nice style.

But it just struck me as being a little bit odd at the moment. But again, as I look back on it right now, she sure had a grasp of where the American public was and what the hot button issues were.

I just find it funny that so much time is spent by libs trying to label her as a retard. Hell there was a thread right at the top of DC today. I have never seen anyone in my life flogged by the media like she has been or seen so many people with a vested interest in making sure that stigma remains in tact.

I am no fan of the fed and it is easy to see that Paulson was simply not comfortable being asked about the real issues at that time. The answers were not going to be good.

Sarah Palin can rub me the right way.

More to the topic, though, where are the liberal feminists defending Palin from these attacks? The same women who shriek with faux outrage that the Tim Tebow Superbowl commercial advocated violence against women (never mind the fact that it was literally the commercial following Betty White getting hammered in a game of tackle football and nobody said a word about that) are conspicuously silent while Palin is called horrible things for no reason.

Even if you hate her politics, she seems like a genuinely good person who has earned everything she has in life. On her worst day, she is the embodiment of the American Dream. On her best day, she may wind up as the leader of the free world. That's not bad for a hockey mom from Alaska.

I'm not going to defend Paulson, but that's just plain bullshit.
