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.
