OK (and I think I am fairly representative of other Europeans who are scratching their heads on this issue) forgive me for asking, but who is Ms Palin? The ex-governor of Alaska, who resigned so that she cound be one of the worst running-mates for a presidential hopeful since some disgruntled wag, scribbled off VP hopeful Richard M. Nixon’s name on a ballot form and replaced it with “Daffy M. Duck”? Why are you even checking the veracity of what comes of of the “Jane Q. Citizens’s” mouth? The ONLY WAY it could be mildly interesting is if the GOP has a collective TIA (transcient ischaemic attack) and begs Dan Quayle to run for President with her as his eminently-suitable partner. Otherwise, treat her as any other citizen who doesn’t know some basic facts about their State or country, with disdain, and just ignore her!
I HAVE to quote Jane Lynch (from GLEE) here: “....the stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered, and that’s saying something: I coached a young Sarah Palin.”
Enough said! Ignore her, and PRAY (if you are so inclined) that she disappears, for the good of the USA! She is a bad advertisement for your country, so it does the media NO favours to be re-hashing this silly woman’s (VOLUMINOUS) lamentable faux-pas.
