If you find yourself leaning towards McCain, you owe it to yourself (and your country) to spend 1:28 with the video clip below. There you’ll see Sarah “one-beat-away” Palin stumble her way through Katie Couric’s very reasonable question, “why does Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives you foreign policy experience”?
A truly cringe-inspiring moment, as the Huff Post’s Nico Pitney puts it. It’ll put some shudder in your step, let me tell you.
I’m not trying to pile on Sarah Palin here, but claiming her role as Alaskan Governor gives her “international experience” – as if only Sarah Palin has been able to keep the Red Army from blasting through the Bering Straight – is ridiculous.
But the real issue continues to be McCain’s disturbingly bad choice of Palin for VP, an indication of the kind of knee-jerk, short-sighted, politically motivated decisions he would make as a president.
