And now, a Sarah Palin Project Thread!
Frustrated by the whole no-interview thing, I put together this website. The idea is to post questions that clearly Sarah Palin will answer, since they're from normal folks and not the media. I'd like to get some feedback on it (the idea, the viability, and the crappy execution). If it seems viable, I'll put work into improving it and linking to it all over the internet. Being pressed for time this week, though, I'd like to get a sense of whether or not it's worth it.

Feedback: too much writing and explanation on your front page. Start asking questions.

Now that she has an interview scheduled with the Supreme Softballer Charlie Gibson, your project is moot. There are enough ass-kissers in the Media who will "question" her between now and Election Day to "satisfy" any "reasonable" critics. And the assumption that she'd accept questions from non-pre-selected "normal folks" works only as satire. Sorry.

Quiet, wendell. I think this is a good idea. But you need a very concise explanation at the top (with a contact button).

Thanks for the feedback.

Seems that one needs to do a lot of clicking around empty categories to see what's been asked. This suggests that the site is a ghost town.

Perhaps you should seed the categories with questions that you would ask- get the ball rolling.

Also provide the numbers of questions against each category to stop people from visiting empty pages.

as per...

(4) Accountability
(1) Campaign
(12) Church and State
(133) Civil Rights
(1) Competitive America
(433) Constitution and Bill of Rights

Also, the entry page is a wee bit stark. Can I suggest that you maybe add a graphic and/or a list of the latest questions/blog on how you are going posing the questions to Ms Palin
