When John McCain picked Sarah Palin to be his VP choice, I thought it was a smart one. I didn’t like her views, but politically, it was brilliant, and I was not surprised that it gave Republicans a huge bump. Her speech at the RNC was a knockout, and I started to think that she might pull this thing out for McCain with her charm and grace. But this interview with Katie Couric is just absolutely startling. Her incoherence is unbelievable. Her mind just wanders on every conceivable topic. It is breathtaking to see how ill-prepared this woman was to speak to the media. I’m willing to bet she says almost nothing to the press before her debate. She is just too big of a liability. Anyone who sees the Couric interview and thinks that this woman is fit to lead the United States of America is completely out of their f***** minds. Just read this quote from the interview: “That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in, where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh — it’s got to be all about job creation too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade, we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, um, scary thing, but 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.”
Here’s the LA Times write up about what a shipwreck the interview was. Sarah Palin: She’s like George Bush, except she’s not as smart.
