These days even hard-core Republicans are questioning veep candidate Nimrhoda the Huntresses's qualifications for the job, or lack of them. Here's a little excerpt from Katie Couric's recent interview with this towel-mouthed loser:
Couric: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
Sarah Palin: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land-boundary that we have with Canada. It's funny that a comment like that was kinda made to … I don't know, you know … reporters.
Palin: Yeah, mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah.
Couric: Well, explain to me why that enhances your foreign-policy credentials.
Palin: Well, it certainly does, because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of. And there…
Couric: Have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
Palin: We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.
Aargh. Britney Spears visits the Brookings Institute for Foreign Policy Studies.
Besides exhibiting some confusion about how many heads Vladimir Putin has, this is a shocking display of ineptitude. It's embarrassing. Do we really want this braying jackass meeting with foreign heads of state?
Elsewhere, people are discussing whether Nimrhoda the Huntress is attractive. I find her to be singularly unattractive, in a way that's peculiar to loud, ignorant fanatics.
The question isn't whether anybody, even a primitive humanoid, can sit grunting in the Oval Office. Dubya proves that such a thing can indeed happen. What we need to ask instead is whether allowing that to happen is a good idea
