Sarah Palin did not know the countries in NAFTA, nor that Africa is a continent, not a country.
I’m with Andrew Sullivan on this one:
Now all I want to say here, ahem, is that they realized all this about this person within a few days of picking her and yet they went ahead for two months bullshitting us … and risking the live possibility that she could be president of the United States at a moment’s notice after next January.
You know: I took a lot of grief for my pretty instant realization back in August that the Palin candidacy was a total farce. But when you cop to the fact that the McCain peeps knew most of that too very early on after their world-historical screw-up, you’ve got to respect and be terrified by their cynicism. I mean: country first?
And they only lost by a few points?
What I find incredible is that people are talking about Sarah Palin as a new leader within the Republican party. Why?
