Palin didn't know Africa was a continent

Seriously. Can't make this stuff up.

  • she didn't know what countries were in NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement - that North American part is a pretty good hint)
  • she didn't know that Africa was a continent, she apparently thought it was a country in and of itself
  • she didn't accept coaching for the Katie Couric interview and got mad when that went badly
  • she was hard to control emotionally, throwing temper tantrums (great qualities for a potential president)
And is it just me, or did the reporters step up the verbosity of their own conversation after finding out that Caribou Barbie was a moron? "Vetting process...truncated...vernacular...hail mary" Whaaaaa?

Oh yeah, and conservatives want her as their candidate in 2012. It certainly brings to mind the saying, "Who's the more foolish - the fool, or the fool who follows him?"

There's another video with a lot more juicy news on her foibles (not knowing basic civics, complaining about being mishandled, threw paperwork at her handlers, answered the door in a bathrobe, a bit of a shopaholic, backbiting in the campaign, etc) but the downside is you have to watch Bill O'Reilly flail around trying to explain it all away as not really her fault.

And by the way, Elizabeth Dole lost. Whooo hoo!
