I've watched part of the Sarah Palin interview, and I think it's very hard to argue that she isn't woefully unprepared; she clearly had no idea what the Bush Doctrine was. She is, to be sure, very good at tap-dancing around questions she doesn't know the answer to. But either other people didn't pick this up, or InTrade investors don't care; McCain is still marching steadily upward.
