So Palin’s interview was this evening. I haven’t watched it and only read a partial transcript form Huffington (I need to read more of it — R says there are some really choice quotes in it).
The best part is from the warm-up to this interview by McCain. The reporter asks…well, here is a transcript:
Q: Well, you say you’re sure that she has the experience, but again, I’m just asking for an example. What experience does she have in the field of national security?
McCAIN: Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America. …. And we all know that energy is a critical and vital national security issue.
Check out the entire article/video clip. This short piece doesn’t do it justice. Also: National security and energy are not the same thing. Nor a subset, nor an answer to the question. Also: I sincerely have to call bullshit on the notion that Palin knows more about energy than “probably anyone else in the United States.”
I hurt. But I can’t help to laugh a little — where I was worried previously, this just highlights how insubstantial their campaign really is.
On the flip side, here is video of Matt Damon talking about the actual logical reasons the McCain/Palin ticket is a bad idea:
This is without touching the lies nor the issues. This is based on nothing but the reality that there a staggering lack of data about what these people believe or what makes them remotely qualified to run the country. Worth your minute and a half to watch.
Oh, and lest you thought the surge was working and victory was achieved and we were all coming home: While Bush Announces 8,000 Troop Withdrawal, Leaked Draft Agreement Calls for Indefinite Occupation. Fantastic.
