Palin Courts Talk Radio

It makes some sense in theory. In practice, she's so incoherent and devoid of any knowledge of any issues, including energy, that she could barely sustain interest past a few minutes. Say what you like about the rabble-rousers of the radio right, like Medved, Levin or Limbaugh. But they're nowhere near as uneducated and as inarticulate as Palin. Her job is as a hood ornament for neocon manipulation of Christianist voters. She can't actually argue. As Kerry Golds points out:

[I]f radio becomes a reality for Palin, it seems likely that any calls she takes from listeners will be screened heavily.
