Palin Out of Water

The much awaited interview by ABC's Charles Gibson of Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was decidedly underwhelming. If there was any serious question about her readiness for the position, Gov. Palin erased all doubt. Her responses to Gibson's questions, particularly the segment on foreign policy and national security, demonstrated that she is clearly out of her element. Little wonder then, why the McCain campaign kept under wraps before finally granting the Gibson interview. Without a doubt, Palin has established her proficiency in two areas: (1) the ability to deliver a speech crafted by someone else; and (2) the ability to regurgitate talking points written by others in anticipation of certain questions.

I totally agree. I came away from the interview "confused" and wondering about my own "comprehension" of questions delivered by Gibson. I kept wanting him to say...."IS THAT YOUR FINAL ANSWER!"

I guess all that "tough" talk is only on the "teleprompter!" Oh....lest I forget....broke down convention night and she had to wing it?????
