JOHN ZIEGLER: So you didn’t buy into the Obama moderation myth?
KATHLEEN PARKER: I did.
ZIEGLER: You were duped by the media –
PARKER: I was one of those people who thought this is a guy who is talking about not a red, not a blue America, and who’s going to bring the country together.
ZIEGLER: So you were duped.
PARKER: I was at that 2004 Democratic convention.
ZIEGER: Were you duped?
PARKER: No, I’m not going to say I was duped, I’m saying –
ZIEGLER: So you stand by that.
PARKER: Listen to you: I’m the interviewer here. [Nervous laughter] This is fun; this is fun. But I wrote critical things of him, and I still write critical things of him.
ZIEGLER: You endorsed him. You endorsed him before the election. And you took pride –
PARKER: I did not endorse. I did not endorse.
ZIEGLER: You took part in the targeting of Sarah Palin. You essentially took part in the assassination of Sarah Palin 1.0. That person is dead; she doesn’t exist any more.
PARKER: No, no, no. Actually, I did not take part in it: I led it. Let’s be clear. Let’s get our facts straight.
