"Gotcha" Journalism Returns... Except it Doesn't

Over the weekend, Sarah Palin was asked a question regarding Pakistan by a voter in Philadelphia, and she responded that she believes the United States has the right to launch an attack within Pakistan's borders if it's clear they are harboring terrorists...... which happens to be the same position Barack Obama supports, a position that John McCain mocked and derided in Friday night's debate.

McCain was forced to do damage control with George Stephanapoulos on Sunday, and both McCain and Palin told Katie Couric last night that the incident was an example of modern-day "gotcha" journalism.... except that the incident was with a voter, not with a journalist.

If anyone comes across a scenario in which Palin actually does speak to a journalist, let me know.  It will be a first.
