That clip of her book signing...that exemplifies why she has any support at all. When Sarah Palin says that she'll, "get right back to you on that", she's telling all of these idiots that it's okay for them to talk about things that they clearly aren't familiar with, like Socialism and cap and trade, with feigned authority. And that it's alright for them not to know about these things because they're real Americans and not the snooty, educated, liberal elite, as though knowing what the fuck the words that come out of your mouth mean is a bad thing. Most all, she tells her supporters that if their ignorance is exposed, it's not their fault. She's a banner for morons to rally behind, which I guess is fine because everyone needs a support system of some kind.
I'm not saying anything we don't already know, I'm aware of that. But watching that clip really drove all those truths home for me.
I do take consolation in the knowledge that if Palin is the GOP's candidate for the 2012 election, Obama will continue on to his second term without having to break a sweat.
