The idea that Sarah Palin could one day soon be a heartbeat away from being President of the United States is a sobering thought. The US Republican Party Vice-presidential candidate is way out of her depth. That she was chosen at all indicates to me that more credible people were not willing to go down in a hail of electoral bullets with John McCain in the November election.
If McCain were in serious contention for the job, you would think that more serious and credible people would have been chosen. Ok, McCain did the choosing and if Sarah Palin is evidence of the quality of his powers of judgment, then McCain himself is not up to the job he's campaigning for. But then we already know that as he thought invading Iraq was a good idea....and says he still does. Whether he really thinks that or not hardly matters. His judgment is trash either way.
I withheld judgment until I had seen enough of her own words to get a feel for what she knows and who she might be in office. This week, I've seen enough to know that she isn't up to the job.
Her own words make that more than clear. Even stitched together and out of context.
...and on climate change....
