Born at the Crest of the Empire

Frightening ignorance.

I don't even know how to launch into the unbelievable self admission by Sarah Palin on FoxNews that, before her debate prep, she didn't know where the 9/11 attackers came from. She thought 9/11 came from Iraq.... in mid-2008!

No one in the McCain campaign asked her about Iraq, 9/11, or terrorism, or foreign policy during her interview and vetting? What the hell did they talk about, because it certainly wasn't qualifications.

When she made her speech at the RNC convention, she still believed Iraq was where 9/11 came from.

The McCain people put her up to be vice president (one McCain heartbeat away from being able to launch nukes,) and they didn't even bother to ask her about the very most basic and core foreign policy challenge America faced?

I'm appalled.

This isn't about Sarah Palin. This is about John McCain and the inside Republicans who ran his campaign.

Can we finally abandon the notion that John McCain cares about national security when he really only cares about the way the press genuflect towards him?

Please, somebody ask him about this on his next Sunday show.

    Bwaa haaa haaa! Ahh... You crack me up sometimes Mike. Somebody asking McCain probing questions... That's rich.

  • Surely the whole idea of putting Palin on the ticket was to bring in the voters who think like her.

  • EPM, yeah, I know. But it still would be nice to see.


    Anon, I think she was brought in with mulitple intent. 1) to try and reach the very angry Hillary voters through a cynical identity play./ (A very bad estimation it turned out.) and, 2) an effort to fire up the base (which worked much better.)
