There’s obvious some covering of backs and blame-shfiting going on here. But if these stories turn out to be true, then my predictions that she had the talent to be a contender the next time around are plainly wrong.
Read the post by AB and watch the clip. If true, then I agree. Not so much because she didn't know Africa was a continent (it's separated from the Eurasian land mass by the four lane Suez Canal), but her purported demeanour under pressure and refusal to be prepped. If true, very bad. Begs the question, if true, why did McCain pick her?
I have to say though, the left may have got lucky. There was no pre-election evidence for any of this. After howling for eight years that Bush was a bumbling buffoon that liked crack and booze, at least part of their dump on Palin MAY be right.
