    What complete nonsense. Anyone who uses the term dog whistle should never be taken seriously in a political discussion.

    You are right... the word "credible" would be more apt than "formidable". She has the credentials for the job, but her role/association in the advocacy of the Iraq war makes her electability as POTUS practically nil.

    notice that like Elizabeth Warren, another who insists that she is not running, condi is becoming more active - and vocal - on the speaking circuit

    Instead she was woefully unprepared. But no, that couldn't be it. That wouldn't be a liberal's fault. Personal Responsibility - in your world it means blame someone else.
    what makes her inability to respond to such a gimme question is that palin was a ****ing journalism major ... and was still stymied by a question about what media she reads

    and the pathetic thing is, palin probably would have nailed the answer to THAT question

    I never knew anyone whose job performance was based on what newspapers they read. She was governor of a state, had 5 kids (one special needs), and seemed to have a pretty active life. I know when my kids were young I barely had time to take a shower, forget sit with a cup of coffee and read the newspaper. That didn't mean I wasn't in tune with what was going on in the world, and it certainly didn't make me stupid.
    former governor of a state. former journalism major. responding to 'what newspapers do you read' should have been beyond easy

    She was the governor of a state with more grizzly bears than people (and fewer people than most large cities). She was a glorified park ranger... and even in the role she could not complete her term. She is miserable excuse for a "leader."

    I agree she is not stupid, but she is remarkably under-educated and intellectually lazy, which makes her ignorant, which is often confused with being stupid.

    Yeah, I had forgotten about that mushroom cloud stuff. To me that means she was just programmed by Cheney and not thinking. There were people jumping up and down saying the evidence for that was flimsy. But she went ahead and repeated it anyway, like a robot. Just like this incident, she was ok until she started opening her mouth.

    A journalism major decades before. She probably thought she was going to be a reporterette like Ashleigh Banfield.

    I was an English major. That doesn't mean I read Shakespeare and Thomas Hardy anymore, nor does that mean I'm supposed to read them anymore.

    I'm not sure about the not thinking part.
    I think she was just repeating that administration's talking points.
    Like a good soldier.
    Colin Powell also touted the WMD line and ended up losing a lot of credibility.
    Too bad for both of them.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
