I agree with this. She's not dumb, she's simply out of her depth but trying not to sound like it.
Those with a different mindset (like LFG-ers), however, see something else: they see someone being bullied.
What Obama is counting on is the near total media monopoly by the Democrats will stop the public from learning that Frank and Raines and Obama are behind the problem and tied to Acorn. The public does not understand what Acorn and Answer are and the ties between them and Obama and Kos and Soros and Marxist operatives going back 50 years or more and as far away as North Korea. The very outrageousness of it is what they are counting on. They intend to brazen it out and drag themselves over the finish line any way they can.
"So again, I believe that a surge in Afghanistan also will lead us to victory there, as it has proven to have done in Iraq."
Painful as this is, she really isn't that much worse than the dude we just elected, twice.
"John McCain and Sarah Palin’s meeting with Bono was canceled Wednesday due to scheduling reasons, according to the campaign.
Instead, McCain and Palin will chat with Bono by phone this afternoon about the ONE Campaign, the U2 front man’s initiative to raise awareness of AIDS and global poverty.
Unlike McCain and Palin’s other meetings with dignitaries in New York this week, most of which had been open to reporters and photographers, the Bono meeting was listed as closed to the press, at the rock star’s request."
"The woman the world has come to know as the hockey mom from Alaska yesterday failed to receive the coveted celebrity endorsement she was chasing.
Bono, it would seem, has not yet been convinced of her suitability for the job of second most powerful political leader in the world, following a brief phone conversation.
...Yesterday, Bono ducked and dodged questions about Ms Palin's suitability and was at pains to stress that he had a habit of meeting all presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
Asked if he was impressed, he pointedly replied: 'I'm just getting to know her.'
Asked if she seemed knowledgeable on Third World issues; if she was clued in; if she was a suitable choice for vice president, he again replied: 'I don't know. I actually haven't a clue.'"
SARAH PALIN (mumblingly): Aww gee… don’t’cha know… alrighty… ooh you betcha!

SARAH PALIN (angrily): Now that’s mine Vlad! You give it back right now! Ooh you make me so mad you’re, you’re – what’s the word?
PUTIN (wryly): Insufferable? Maddening… hot?

SARAH PALIN (apologetically): Well I thought you were mad at me because of that business with the bombs. It was s’posed ta be a joke, don’tcha know?

PUTIN: I don’t give a dang about Sarkozy. Now you are mine again. I am going to bomb Paris though.
SARAH PALIN (dumbly): That’s in Texas, ain’t it?
PUTIN: Damn you have a fine ass.
Joe just reaped a ton of Joe Sixpack cred simply by being sincere.
this stuff -- this talking to reporters and taking interviews -- is hard, especially when you don't have much experience in having to speak intelligently in public on a national level.
"The YouTube poster promises more, writing:'The 100% legit footage of the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant featuring Sarah Palin. If you think this clip is good, wait until you see her play her flute in the talent competition... ;)'"*

"Sen. Edward Kennedy, who has been in treatment for brain cancer, was taken to a hospital near his Cape Cod, Mass. vacation home after complaining of feeling ill.
Barnstable, Mass. police Sgt. Ben Baxter said the 911 call from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port came at about 5:10 p.m. on Friday.
Baxter said Kennedy was then taken by ambulance to Cape Cod Hospital. Baxter said Kennedy was 'alert and responsive' during the trip.
Representatives of Kennedy and the hospital did not immediately return calls for comment."
From her interviews and appearances, it's obvious she wasn't cramming for those - she's cramming for this debate.
"I've never been on the fence like this. I never really thought about it before -- I'd vote Republican because that's what I've always done. But the economy is screwed, and all McCain seems to care about is how it affects rich people and his own poll numbers. War hero or not, he doesn't seem to give a fuck about the middle class. Dude, I think I'm voting for Obama!"
"The marriage of the vice-presidential candidate’s pregnant teenage daughter could lift a flagging campaign"
If this is true the USA deserves to drown.

“Sen. John McCain retracted Sarah Palin's stance on Pakistan Sunday morning, after the Alaska governor appeared to back Sen. Barack Obama's support for unilateral strikes inside Pakistan against terrorists
‘She would not…she understands and has stated repeatedly that we're not going to do anything except in America's national security interest,’ McCain told ABC's George Stephanopoulos of Palin. ‘In all due respect, people going around and… sticking a microphone while conversations are being held, and then all of a sudden that's—that's a person's position… This is a free country, but I don't think most Americans think that that's a definitive policy statement made by Governor Palin.’
Saturday night, while on a stop for cheesesteaks in South Philadelphia, Palin was questioned by a Temple graduate student about whether the U.S. should cross the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan.
‘If that's what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should,’ Palin said.
During Friday night's presidential debate in Mississippi, Obama took a similar stance and condemned the Bush administration for failing to act on the possibility terrorists are in Pakistan”
It's, uh, Opposite Day. Starting ... now!
Palin and McCain interview with Katie Couric. I guess Tina Fey wasn't kidding about a lifeline.
You don’t announce that you’re going to attack another country.
