A while ago, I wrote that, perhaps, a sitting senator ought to know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
Now, a 60 Minutes interview reveals that twice-failed presidential candidate John McWeirdsmile nearly brought into the White House a person who was even less informed a person than is John Boner.
In public, Palin looked like the game changer McCain had wanted, but in private, the authors say she was struggling to learn too much too fast.
“Her foreign policy tutors are literally taking her through, ‘This is World War I, this is World War II, this is the Korean War. This is the how the Cold War worked.’ Steve Schmidt had gone to them and said, ‘She knows nothing,'” Heilemann told Cooper. “A week later, after the convention was over, she still didn’t really understand why there was a North Korea and a South Korea. She was still regularly saying that Saddam Hussein had been behind 9/11. And, literally, the next day her son was about to ship off to Iraq. And when they asked her who her son was going to fight, she couldn’t explain that.”
Prudence Palin was born on February 11, 1964. Yet, she had to have the Cold War explained to her. She apparently could not keep the world wars straight and had trouble wrapping her gray matter around the 38th parallel. Apparently, she’s never seen a single episode of M*A*S*H.
Today, we learn that Palin is all set to become part of the great corporate “media filter.” On Fox “News,” of course.
I’m not sure if this confirms or disproves the Peter Principle.
Regardless, it is absolutely mortifying that John McWeirdsmile nearly placed this idiot in the OEOB. Just remember that. Remember that every time this jackass opens his mouth. He nearly put Prudence Palin, whose knowledge base probably only nearly approximates that of Sal the Stockbroker, into the White House.
He should be made to wear a “Palin 2012” t-shirt wherever he goes.
