    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.
    I agree she was/is intellectually lazy. I also don't think the Katie Couric thing was as big as people make it out to be. In the grand scheme of things, anyway. Besides, I blame the McCain staffers for plucking her out of obscurity and setting her in that role. I like Palin, but she wasn't the right person for the VP nod in any way. I was looking for a Marsha Blackburn type if they were hell bent on picking a woman.

    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.
    Of course it doesn't matter, because YOU CAN'T DO IT!

    This is another of those cases where you think Palin is stupid because someone told you she's stupid.

    Her communications skills seem subpar.

    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.
    True enough.
    But at least you can name two writers you have read.
    I wonder what Sarah's response would have been if Couric had asked her what books she's read?

    while i am critical of palin, she lacks some essential element to be found credible, she seemed to have an excellent (maybe intuitive) sense about how to motivate an audience. reminded me quite a bit of Ann Richards
    before she was added to the ticket, mccain literally could not draw a crowd in a grocery store
    his campaign was flat, and headed nowhere until palin became the semi-official spokesmodel for republican values
    she was a net plus to that ticket
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Too bad for both of them.
    You can be a good soldier and think too. If she was thinking, she could have left that mushroom cloud stuff out.
    Poor Colin Powell. He really made a fool out of himself. What's far out about it was that he argued against going into Iraq, but they sent him in front of the world to spout all that BS!!!
    Goes to show you, black folks always get the short end of the stick!!!

    Obama himself wouldn't want to debate Condi.....let alone Hillary wanting to take her on.
    Condi was a big mouthpiece for the false info leading to the Iraq War. After she said "mushroom cloud" about 100 times I lost all trust in her. Hillary would tear her to pieces and she knows it. That's why she won't run.

    This is true.
    Sarah's got charisma and definitely has a cadre of loyal supporters.
    Just enough to support her PAC, but not enough to win an election.

    I wonder what Sarah's response would have been if Couric had asked her what books she's read?
    Actually, if someone asked me to name 2 books I'm reading now, I would stutter and drool. And the last book I read was Shirley Jones' autobiography which I downloaded on my son's Kindle about 4 months ago. So while people would expect that someone who read all the Classics in college (I graduated with high honors and had to do a long thesis on Chaucer) is a rabid reader of anything, I simply don't read anymore. No time, interest. I could name authors I read in the past, yes.

    I don't ever read newspapers anymore. I scan our local paper here to see who got arrested for soliciting prostitutes but that's about it.

    Sarah would have made a great weather bunny actually. I've seen her up close. Very close, in fact, when she & Todd were in Salem NH back in 2012 doing a rally and I worked at it. She's actually quite lovely - she has skin I would kill for.

    By the way, I'm still scarred from Shirley's tales of threesomes with her and Jack Cassidy and young Vegas showgirls. Who knew Mrs. Partridge was so wild?
