Palin on Couric (Disparagingly): ‘There’s the perky one, with the mircrophone, with the questions.’ Like a bullet Oprah shot back, ‘You’re pretty perky, too.’ After Much Anticipation, It Aired Today: Oprah’s Interview with Sarah Palin

Besides that exchange about Palin’s now infamous interview with CBS’s Katie Couric during the 2008 campaign, Palin also told Oprah that  a run for the White House is not currently on Palin’s  radar screen, Reuters reports.

But Palin clearly left the door open for a presidential bid by also saying that "I don’t know what I’m going to be doing in 2012."

Back to the subject of Katie Couric,  according to the report, "Palin said Couric’s questions during their series of interviews during the campaign — which critics said exposed Palin’s lack of intellectual depth — had "annoyed" her and therefore left the perception she was ‘unqualified.’

‘I thought she was asking about this Neanderthal tribe up there in Alaska,’ Palin said of Couric’s questions about which newspapers and magazines she regularly read." In the Couric interview Palin never said specifically which ones she did read.

  1. “The Perky One”–classic Palin–petty, vindictive, always personalizing everything!–wanted Oprah to ask her “after all this, do you at long last, know job description of VP?”
