All the Feel-Good Photo-Ops with Firemen in the World Can't Stop Sarah Palin's Descent into Total Incoherence

If you thought things couldn't get any worse than Palin's awful performance with Katie Couric last night, hoo, boy, were you wrong! So far CBS has posted two snippets: in one, idiotic Sarah gets her talking points all mixed up and says that the Wall Street bailout will be good news for people concerned with health care reform (???), and then hilariously realizes that she looked at the wrong answer on her cheat sheet. In the other, she tries a freshly concocted variation on her "I can see Russia from my house" theme:

“It’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska.”

Lady, what the hell are you talking about? They better construct a lifelike, Disneytronic Palinbot pretty soon (by next Thursday, actually) unless they want these blatantly imbecilic non sequiturs to continue.

We must bailout Wall Street because we can never forget what happened on 9/11 because victory is important in Iraq because I can see Russia from my house and you can't socialize healthcare.

I think that covers it.

She's Marge Gunderson without the probity.

This leaves McCain with only one viable distraction left - douse himself with gasoline and set himself on fire to protest the bailout deals slowness and high gas prices at the same time.
That should grab the headlines, no?

I love when Ygelsias says that NY is closer to Moscow than Alaska, but that Paterson does not claim extensive foreign policy experience.

And if for example, he did - he would be roundly mocked and derided.

It was also kind of funny when Sarah went all disassociated because she was like so, so so - mocked.

I had lunch with a Repub friend today. We avoid politics at all costs, but especially lately.

Today she did have a go at me by pushing on the fact that "what do we know, what do we really know about Barack Obama? He hasn't been around that long."

I kept my mouth shut because it was not worth me calling this 70 year old woman a fucktard in a restaurant, but I would love to show her this video and ask about what we know regarding Sarah.

What is that book Painful's holding? I can't quite make it out. Perhaps "Forun Polsee for Dummies"? "Complete Sentences Are Your Friends"? "How Not to Make a Complete Ass of Yourself"? These are books she could benefit from.

And Fran, you're way too kind. I know enough about Obama to vote for him over Satan's bride. Isn't that enough?

"...Putin rears his head..."
I guess that's when he puts his ass-hat on. Sarah's got her's on full time.

Sarah Palin replies:

"Jeeze, ya know I try to forgive homersexuals for being perverted n' all, but it's all this sarcastic stuff like this that makes me sorry I didn't make a law in Alaska to keep the rude gays out.
"My verbiage may not be up to your big city standards, but by stopping the terroristic terrorists by taking the fight to them, in order to create jobs and grow the economy which you may know is robust but could be even robuster.
"Because American workers are the bestest, the smartest and the strongest in the whole country. And presiding as the chief executive of Alaska, which I happen to do, I have explicit dealings with the Russians and also too the Canada people- which are our friends, not the Russians, I mean the Canada people are.
"And Russia, which I can see from my door, is the gateway to communist- which is just the word 'terrorist' in Russian.
"And so instead of making fun of me I think the homsexuals such as yourselfs should kneel down and pray instead of that other disgusting kneeling down instead of praying for Jesus to cure you.
Because we can't let the terrorists win and with Jesus's Help and Love, we won't."
