Palin's "Gibberish"

More

Like any other rational person concerned about the state of the world and the enormous dangers ahead, Fareed Zakaria has one word to describe Sarah Palin's attempts to say anything coherent about the country and world she is asking to be president of (if McCain were to expire). Bottom line:

Can we now admit the obvious? Sarah Palin is utterly unqualified to be vice president. She is a feisty, charismatic politician who has done some good things in Alaska. But she has never spent a day thinking about any important national or international issue, and this is a hell of a time to start...

In these times, for John McCain to have chosen this person to be his running mate is fundamentally irresponsible. McCain says that he always puts country first. In this important case, it is simply not true.

Until he drops Palin from the ticket, McCain is simply not a serious candidate for president.
