Rambling non stop unrelated information to try to hide the fact that you have no clue about what someone just asked you.
COURIC:Why isn't it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy? Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: That's why I say, I like... ever American I'm speaking with were ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bailout.

But ultimately, what the bailout does... is... help... those... who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy ... Helping the ... Oh, it's got to be about job creation too. Shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform... and reducing taxes... and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions... and tax relief for Americas... And trade... we've got to see trade... mmm... as opportunity... mmm... not as a competitive scary thing. But 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity... All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

COURIC: Are you pulling a Palin?

PALIN: Yes.

Using terms like "blood libel" and creating other controversy in a never ending cycle to keep oneself in the spotlight long after their 15 minutes of fame has expired. Also creating drama to make it look like they're the victim after saying something stupid also applies.
