Oh. My. God. She is In. Over. Her. Head.

Just watch. If you dare. Here she talks about the economic bailout and even looking at her notes, she has no understanding of the economy. Rod Dreher (I will find the link later) compared her to a college student who tries to take an exam after not preparing. I think she is like the college student who tried to cram two years of information in a couple hours. Either way, she only knows vague talking points.

It is really sad to watch. But she isn't getting better. And I am not the only one who thinks so. H/t to one of my yoga friends for this story noting that conservative commentator Kathleen Parker has called on Palin to step down. Silly Kathleen. Sarah doesn't "blink" and I am pretty sure stepping down would qualify.

But if you are losing the Parkers and the Drehers, you are losing the Conservative enthusiasm you were brought in for.

Kinda reminds me of this lovely speech . . . .
Ok, not quite that bad. But really bad. Really very bad.

This pundit take on that speech is also pretty good.

I totally agree with that, like, such as.

Palin is like, such as, sort of a human fillibuster, like the unprepared freshman taking US history survey (History of US Americans) trying to write an essay question. her responses would have been posted on the bullpen wall for all to enjoy.

Like, you know, you guys are being, like, so unfair to Sarah. And you know, at the end of the day, when Americans are looking around wondering what in the world she just said, and thinking that John McCain was tortured and has a proven track record and she can like, see Russia from her kitchen window.

And the fundamentals of our economy are strong.

Streak said...

Tony, you meant the US Americans, right? And that McCain was tortured in The Vietnam and the South Africa?

You can teach a parrot to give a speech, but that doesn't mean it knows what it's talking about.

And I think Tina Fey is going to get her old job back on SNL!
