Bill Press: If I Paid Palin's Speaking Fee 'I'd Want My Money Back'

The predictable media attacks on Sarah Palin were all over the television dial after her keynote speech to the National Tea Party convention Saturday, and talk radio host Bill Press more than lived down to what one would expect from such a liberal shill.

Appearing with Ed Schultz on MSNBC, Press said that if he paid her $100,000 speaking fee, "I'd want my money back."

Much as the AP did Sunday, Press accused Palin of not offering one idea.

After giving what appeared to be a campaign speech for President Obama, Press then said of Palin, "I don't think she even knows what's going on in Washington" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript, h/t MoxNews):

BILL PRESS: First of all, Ed, you and I were talking yesterday, we were interested in what you get for $100,000. Not much, is I'd have to say, you know. If I paid her that, I'd want my money back, Ed...You know what struck me, Ed, most of all is, there was a string of platitudes, but there was a lot of cheap shots. But she didn't offer one idea, and the only ideas she talked about, as you mentioned, well she's talked about energy. Who has put out there new money for energy projects? Who's talked about nuclear power? Who's talked about offshore drilling? Barack Obama. She talked about tax cuts. Who's put tax cuts out for small business? Barack Obama. I don't think she even knows what's going on in Washington.  

Doesn't seem like Press knows what went on in Nashville Saturday, does it? 

Surprised?
