Campaign insiders, now freed from the constraints of "off the record" were bursting to reveal just how deficient Sarah Palin truly is, suggesting she wouldn't score well on the test, "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?"
We heard her announce that she has foreign policy experience because of Alaska's proximity to Russia before saying that the Vice-President is in control of the Senate and a policy-maker. More recently we were treated to a phone call with her naively buying into the outlandish prank Sarkozy call.
Given this background, it doesn't seem preposterous that she believes Africa is a country, rather than a continent, and feels the appropriate way for a vice-presidential candidate to answer her hotel room door for a meeting is not in one of the many, absurdly expensive, designer outfits she bought with campaign funds, but wrapped in a towel.
We can laugh...but only because she's out of the picture. For picking her, McCain should be tried for treason.
