We dodged a (Palin) bullet

If McCain has won, We could have had a VP that made Dan Quayle look like a Rhodes Scholar. I don’t want to be jumping on the “America you did the right thing” bandwagon, since all we did was vote for a president, but I’m soooo relieved Palin is nowhere near the White House. I hope this puts a fork in the Republicans party pandering to Social Conservative extremists, although I seriously doubt it.

Palin Didn’t Know Africa Is A Continent, Says Fox News Reporter (VIDEO)

According to Fox News Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron, there was great concern within the McCain campaign that Palin lacked “a degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, a heartbeat away from the presidency,” in part because she didn’t know which countries were in NAFTA, and she “didn’t understand that Africa was a continent, rather than a series, a country just in itself.”

BTW, yes I’m glad Obama won but as I told Sandy yesterday, “I’m a bit disappointed that Nicholas did not poop gold the following morning.” Expectations for his presidency are either naive or delusional.
