Sarah Palin at the Long Island Association

On Thursday, February 17, 2011, Sarah Palin sat down for a one-hour Q&A at the monthly meeting of the Long Island Association. Her questioner was Kevin Law, a Democrat. Watch -- and judge for yourself.

(Note: After she’s announced until she sits down, there is no sound. The sound comes back on as soon as the Q&A begins. It was probably a matter of switching on the microphones. Other than the applause when she sits down, there is nothing missing.)
