Watch the video McCain is mentally unbalanced as Sarah Palin Paling pailing gone!
McCain is mentally imbalanced, this is unbelievable!
OMG Palin actually defends living next to Russia and Canada is foreign policy experience. She is a brain dead ditz! No way in hell she s/b in the White House!
She is an insult to all experienced women in politics let alone the rest of us. I am glad to see questions finally being raised. Send her back to Alaska to grow up! Palin's been majorly controlled but one time being interviewed and red flags are out! The country is understandably focused on the financial crisis. But there is another serious issue in front of us that is not getting nearly enough attention, and that’s whether Sarah Palin is qualified to be vice president — or, if the situation were to arise, president of the United States. History has shown again and again that a vice president must be ready to assume command of the ship of state on a moment’s notice. But Ms. Palin has given no indication yet that she is capable of handling the monumental responsibilities of the presidency if she were called upon to do so. In fact, the opposite is the case. We know that there are some parts of Alaska from which, if the day is clear and your eyesight is good, you can actually see Russia. But the infantile repetition of this bit of trivia as some kind of foreign policy bona fide for a vice presidential candidate should give us pause.
The McCain campaign has done its bizarre best to shield Ms. Palin from any sustained media examination of her readiness for the highest offices in the land, and no wonder. She has been an embarrassment in interviews. But the idea that the voters of the United States might install someone in the vice president’s office who is too unprepared or too intellectually insecure to appear on, say, “Meet the Press” or “Face the Nation” is mind-boggling. The alarm bells should be clanging and warning lights flashing. You wouldn’t put an unqualified pilot in the cockpit of a jetliner. The potential for catastrophe is far, far greater with an unqualified president. The United States has been lucky in terms of the qualifications of the vice presidents who have had to step in over the last several decades for presidents who either died or, in Richard Nixon’s case, were forced to leave office. Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson became extraordinary presidents in their own right. Gerald Ford successfully guided the nation through the immediate aftermath of one of the most traumatic political crises in its history.
For those who think Sarah Palin is in that league, there is no problem. But her unscripted public appearances would lead most honest observers to think otherwise. When asked again this week about her puerile linkage of foreign policy proficiency and Alaska’s proximity to Russia, this time by Katie Couric of CBS News, here is what Ms. Palin said she meant: “That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land — boundary that we have with — Canada.” She went on, but lost her way midsentence: “It’s funny that a comment like that was kind of made to — cari — I don’t know, you know? Reporters ...” Ms. Couric said, “Mocked?” “Yeah, mocked,” said Ms. Palin. “I guess that’s the word. Yeah.” It is not just painful, but frightening to watch someone who could become the vice president of the United States stumbling around like this in an interview. Ms. Couric asked Ms. Palin to explain how Alaska’s proximity to Russia “enhances your foreign policy credentials.” “Well, it certainly does,” Ms. Palin replied, “because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of. And there—” Palin is a bad joke we can't let happen!
* Even my wife who hates politics and I piss off at least once a day discussing this mess before she yells at me to shut up is stupefied by the stupidity and unqualification of Palin to be representing us. It is an insult to see her defended as being qualified to represent us and run the country if need be! There is no way in hell. What a friggen nightmare! I was insulted even having her at the UN meeting. I don't remember which country it was but when the dignitary shook her hand he said she was gorgeous and he wanted to hug her. WTF? What the hell was that? What the hell are we supposed to think? She is no Hillary, she is an insult to the many qualified women we have. There is no way in hell she can deal with the mess Bush has made of America and the world! Who the hell would be pulling the strings if Palin God forbid was stolen in with McCain and he died in office? Rove? Cheney? Bush? Who? I am really glad to see MSM wake up and start to question this. They better do it loudly before it is too late though Romney would be no improvement!
