Palin's explanation about economy is clear as mud

Tonight, Sean Hannity, the freakishly conservative commentator, begins his love-fest interview with Sarah Palin on Fox News. Hannity was originally supposed to interview Palin on Tuesday's show but she didn't appear. At the end of the show, he cryptically said they couldn't do the interview due to weather issues. Huh? If you can interview a guy in the mountains of Afghanistan via satellite, I'm pretty sure you can reach Palin for an interview despite inclement weather. It's likely Palin was a no show because she wasn't deemed ready for Prime Time by her handlers.

Here's a sneak preview from tonight's interview. Hannity tosses a softball question about the economy to Palin...

HANNITY: Senator Barack Obama yesterday was attacking Senator McCain for saying that the fundamentals of the economy are strong. Do you believe that the fundamentals of our economy are strong?

PALIN: Well, it was an unfair attack on the verbiage that Senator McCain chose to use. The fundamentals that he was having to explain afterwards, he means the work force, he means ingenuity of the American people. And of course, that is strong, that is the foundation of our economy. So that was an unfair attack based on verbiage that John McCain used. Certainly, it is a mess, though.

It's unfair to use McCain's own words to describe what he said? No one on earth thought McCain's statement ,"the economy is fundamentally strong," was about American workers. Palin's stumbling response makes it even more obvious that they're backtracking. She goes on to say "it is a mess though" - I assume she's referring to the economy here. So Sarah, any ideas about fixing it?
