Palin: “Not only am I ready…”

Updated

Palinmccain2Katie Couric continues her interviews with Sarah Palin tonight — this is like an endless miniseries — where Palin answers criticism of her interview from last week. The full interview with Palin and John McCain on the campaign trail airs tonight on “CBS Evening News.”

It’s McCain, not Palin, who is contentious with Couric.

The transcript:

Couric: Gov. Palin, since our last interview, you’ve gotten a lot of flak. Some Republicans have said you’re not prepared; you’re not ready for prime-time. People have questioned your readiness since that interview.  And I’m curious …

Palin: Yeah. 

Couric: … to hear your reaction. 

Palin: Well, not only am I ready but willing and able to serve as Vice President with Sen. McCain if Americans so bless us and privilege us with the opportunity of serving them, ready with my executive experience as a city mayor and manager, as a governor, as a commissioner, a regulator of oil and gas.

The full transcript, in which McCain takes aim at “gotcha journalism” after Couric questions Palin for making a statement over the weekend in which she appears to be agreeing with Barack Obama:
