Before Kamala Harris gave her acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention, Sarah Palin appeared on a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson, waxing wingnut word salad about the media, the 2008 campaign, and Kamala Harris.

“Looking back, is there anything you could have done to get the kind of coverage that Kamala Harris is getting now?” Carlson asked. “Like you care about equality deep within your soul, that you’re a rockstar, a celebrity, you’re the Dalai Lama reincarnated. Could you have done anything to get that kind of coverage?”

Palin’s reply?

“I would not have prostituted myself in terms of changing any of my positions in order to garner better press.” She went on to suggest that she would “gotten a lot better coverage” had she “compromised my convictions.” 

Later in the interview she also spoke unkindly of Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt, who since working with Palin have turned away from the Republican Party.

“There was a lot of sabotaging going on, especially at the end of the game there,” she said, calling them “wolves in sheep’s clothing.”
