When John McCain selected Sarah Palin the country was stunned. Who was she? I have purposely avoided posting anything about her until I had the chance to give her a fair evaluation. After all, JUDGMENT is a very important component of being a President and this selection is a direct reflection of John McCain's decision-making abilities. It is well known that he wanted his close friend, Democratic turncoat Joe Lieberman, as his running mate but Republicans would not accept that choice.
Sarah Palin was his "protest" selection. Did he exercise good judgment?
Here is Sarah Palin responding to a Katie Couric question regarding her foreign policy experience.
For comparison, I am posting a response to a similar foreign policy question by another former beauty queen, Miss Teen South Carolina.
America, WAKE UP! John McCain has lost it entirely. To be polite, Sarah Palin is dumb as a doorknob. Obviously the rumors are true that her husband is the politician and Sarah is the pretty face that fronts for him. This selection of Ms. Palin as the one who will be a literal hearbeat from the Presidency should strike fear in the hearts of every American who cares about this country and it's national security. My 9 year old granddaughter could have answered that question more intelligently.
She is linking 9/11 to Iraq, making fun of Barack Obama for criticizing the torture of prisoners, defying lawful subpoenas for the investigation into her abuse of power as Governor of Alaska, etc. In my opinion, she is a tool of Karl Rove and the Bush cabal. What was John McCain thinking? Does he REALLY believe that the American public is that stupid? SARAH PALIN IS NOT QUALIFIED TO BE VICE PRESIDENT.
Just how close to the Presidency is this totally unqualified "candidate"?
It's time for CHANGE, but not like that! Get out and debate Mr. McCain. You made a commitment to the American people to debate. Keep your commitment.
