Can We Just Stop Asking Her Questions?

Most of you know where I fall out in this year’s presidential campaign but I still am interested in a good solid, issues-driven campaign on both sides. To that effect I ask everybody, “Please stop asking Sarah Palin questions!!!”

She has no experience, even the staunchest of Republicans have to agree on that and the only reason she’s in this thing is that she believes in Jebus, Guns, and is, frankly, a woman.

All that aside, she just should stop answering questions because she comes off like a complete ditz. Case in point, last night’s interview with Charlie Gibson on ABC. When asking about her foreign policy experience (something by the way the VP’s office has gotten much more involved with in the past 20 years), Palin said she has not traveled abroad much -- to Mexico and Canada, and since she became governor, to Kuwait and Germany to visit troops. And she said she has not met with a foreign head of state, but dismissed that experience held by Obama and his running mate Joe Biden, and McCain.

"We've got to remember what the desire is in this nation at this time," she said. "It is for no more politics as usual," she said, "and somebody's big fat resume, maybe that shows decades and decades in that Washington establishment, where, yeah, they have had opportunity to meet heads of state." (her quote)

Um...Ms. Palin, the McCain campaign is on the phone and they want you to shut the hell up! Are you aware that you just described your running mate? John McCain has served in the US House and Senate since 1982. By my count that’s 26 years, or in your words “decades and decades in that Washington establishment...” perhaps you should just stick to giving advice on how to be a “hockey-mom” and the proper way to clean your semi-automatic assault, err hunting, rifle.
