Sarah Palin -- Hick on a high wire, as she was described during the 2008 campaign. Granted, McCain did not finish vetting and interviewing her until 36 hours before he chose her as the VP candidate, so she was dropped all of a sudden into the Big Time and took a while to adjust. In fact during the adjustment period her Republican handler's judged her mentally unstable and almost catatonic because she refused to communicate. She was (still is?) almost totally ignorant of the world outside Wasilla -- she did not even know why North and South Korea are separate countries. The one thing she seems to be very good at is memorizing lines and spouting them back. During the campaign the Democrats held focus groups to probe "undecided" voters. One lady began ranting about Obama being a Muslim, secret terrorist, not even born in the USA, etc. etc. When they asked her, if Obama is that bad, how can you still be undecided who to vote for? She said, I can't vote for McCain because if he dies Palin would be president.
Seriously, the woman is a whack job. She obviously has some good handlers right now who are filling her mouth with words, because I can't believe she has filled her brain with any useful knowledge in just the last year. No matter how much someone dislikes Obama, it's scary to think Palin could be president. There are a dozen members of this forum I would vote for before Sarah -- including some of you lib haters!
