Psssssst. Hey, Wake Up

Please please someone ask Hobbs or Gill or ANYONE supporting this woman’s selection as VP candidate how they can still think shes qualified.  Good Lord, people, Couric LOBBED the ball in slow motion, and Palin blew it.  C’mon, guys, seriously, what gives?

EDITED TO ADD:  Over at Ezra’s house, i saw the following comment regarding this interview and Sarah Palin:

It turns out that it’s a lot easier to be a superstar in local politics in a small state. Easier if you build up undeserved cred for integrity by bashing the non-moving targets in your own party, and easier still if you’re promoted from within so quickly that no one has time to seriously assess your performance.

Palin would have done a slow fade over a few years in Alaska had she had a chance (and she probably will yet). Were it not for the desperation of the McCain campaign and her suitability in two key areas that needed to be addressed, the national party would have watched, waited, and eventually concluded that she’s not really cut out for a high national profile.

But there was no time for all that, and so they had to discover along with the rest of us that she’s not even moderately conversant on the important topics of the day–and worse, that her political skills aren’t as formidable as they appeared on a smaller stage with weaker opponents. She’s no more prepared for the stress of campaigning than she is for the job itself, and it’s making her answers even more vacuous and confused than they might have been. It’s no wonder they’re terrified of letting her speak.

  1. She lobbed it so slow and delicate it was almost patronizing… and she still blew it.

    In covering this slow motion trainwreck in just the past two weeks, I’ve had the hardest time even finding any Nashville area conservative blogs mentioning anything about McCain or Palin. I try to link to a good split of liberal and conservative commentary, but it’s overwhelmingly been from liberal blogs. It’s clear to me they are at a loss for words.

  2. I’ve edited this post, because I found a comment that precisely sums her up.
