Blogger Jason Tolbert says it’s time for Sarah Palin to be more like Mike Huckabee and engage with the press at book appearances. She’ll be signing books at the Little Rock Sam’s Club this afternoon. Her publicist has told Tolbert she’ll only sign books and take no questions. No press will be allowed inside the building. (How they’ll stop an intrepid reporter seeking to enter Sam’s Club under the guise of buying an industrial-size supply of cheese doodles we’ll just have to see.) Writes Tolbert:
If Palin is serious about running for President, she needs to stop hiding from the media and only going on shows that are friendly to her point of view. This practice only fuels the perspective that she is not capable of answering tough questions. I understand the media can be tough but that is part of it.
