Actually, I don't think she exceeded expectations at all. I think she met the absolute bare minimum that would prevent her from getting raked over
the coals every day until the election.
I think she jumped off topic too much.
"I'd like to say something about Afghanistan."
"Ummm...OK, we're not talking about Afghanistan, but knock yourself out."
She is foreign policy illiterate. Being governor of a state that's kinda-sorta close to Russia does not make her a foreign policy guru.
"I can see Russia from my back yard."
"No, Gov. Palin. That's just *snip*."
She's a pretty face and has done nothing but reinforce the false belief that pretty girls have no brains.
She is not some spitfire with witty, down-home rhetoric. She is a tool being used by the Republicans to grab the Hillary voters who feel betrayed.
What they don't realize is that no matter how betrayed they may feel, come Election Day those votes aren't going anywhere (at least, not the
majority of them). They're staying home with the Democratic Party.
Lastly, she talks to me as if I'm some sort of idiot for doubting her credentials. Say what you want about Obama's inexperience, but at least he's
got SOME national and foreign policy experience (not much, but SOME). She's the governor of Alaska - a state so cold that the Sun can only tolerate
it for six months.
Hello, Sarah Palin. Goodbye, Sarah Palin. Geraldine Ferraro will now escort you into obscurity. Thanks for playing.
