(Newser) – Sarah Palin's flubbed interviews were all part of her plan to safeguard America's Palin-lampooning industry, the candidate quipped at a Florida rally yesterday. Palin told supporters that the rocky moments in the Katie Couric interviews—including a failure to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with—came from annoyance with the "trivial" questions, reports the New York Daily News.

"I should have told them was I was just trying to keep Tina Fey in business—giving her more information," Palin told the cheering crowd. "Job security for SNL characters."
