Not good...

Is anyone else watching the Sarah Palin interview? Wow...She sounds like she has no clue. 

UPDATE: Let me be clear. This isn't simply liberal crowing--in fact, I think any liberal crowing about this is missing the point. This is not about strong disagreements on policy--this is about listening to someone who has no handle on the facts, and thus can't even really disagree. This woman could be president. She seemed to have utterly no idea what the Bush Doctrine even was. Amazing.

UPDATE #2
Wow what a mangling of Lincoln. That's not even close to what she said. I'm off the fence on Palin, if I ever was. That was an incredibly ignorant interview. She is way scarier than Dick Cheney. She seems to have at best a pedestrian understanding of foreign policy. Incredible.
