Palin Not Down With ‘O-P-M’

Fox News has released some excerpts from Sean Hannity’s interview with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin scheduled to air this evening on “Hannity & Colmes.” If the excerpts are a representative sample of the overall interview, it doesn’t appear Hannity was nearly as interested in Palin’s views on foreign policy as ABC’s Charles Gibson. The only topic that comes close in the excerpts is energy independence. Still, there is some interesting material, such as this gem, on who bears responsibility for the current financial crisis:

“I think the corruption on Wall Street. That’s to blame. And that violation of the public trust. And that contract that should be inherent in corporations who are spending, investing other people’s money, the abuse of that is what has got to stop.

“And it’s a matter, too, of some of these CEOs and top management people, and shareholders too not holding that management accountable, being addicted to, we call it, OPM, O-P-M, “other people’s money.”

“Spending that, investing that, not using the prudence that we expect of them. But here again, government has got to play an appropriate role in the stringent oversight, making sure that those abuses stop.”

O-P-M?!? Is that a Naughty By Nature reference?

For those who don’t remember, or who weren’t teenagers like I was in the early to mid-90s, here’s a refresher:

We know they’ve been playing dirty, but is this an indication that the McCain campaign intends to go straight gangsta?

UPDATE: Never mind. When I wrote this, I had only read the transcript. After hearing Palin actually say it, it clearly wasn’t an old-school hip-hop reference. It was a nice, wholesome illegal drug reference. “Addicted to O-P-M.” Opium. Get it?

She took out a pencil and notebook during the now-famous blizzard and started writing down one of those stories. It was there that I began my professional life. Her first book was written after several rejections and manuscripts. She is a member of many writers' organizations and has received several accolades from her peers and the publishing industry. The New Yorker recently dubbed her "America's favorite novelist".
