Game Change

In this month's edition of the Black River News, a publication preventing the extinction of outhouses in some parts of Appalachia, a local GOP operative pays homage to Sara Palin by declaring “she is more qualified to be president than Barack Obama.”

Perhaps this operative should take a look at page 397 of the bestselling book, GAME CHANGE, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

 Here is an excerpt:

"Then there was the matter of Palin's substantive deficiencies. On September 10 (2008), she was preparing to fly back to Alaska to see her son Track ship off to Iraq and to tape her first network interview with ABC News' Charlie Gibson. Before the flight to Anchorage, Schmidt, Wallace, and other members of her traveling party met Palin at the Ritz-Carlton near Reagan airport, in Pentagon City, Virginia - and found that, although she's made some progress with her memorization and studies, her grasp of rudimentary facts and concepts was minimal. Palin couldn't explain why North and South Korea were separate nations. She didn't know what the Fed did. Asked who attacked America on 9/11, she suggested several times that it was Saddam Hussein. Asked to identify the enemy that her son would be fighting in Iraq, she drew a blank."

I am quite sure our current President could answer these questions in his sleep.
