Palin on Reading: Ummmmm...

Sarah Palin was asked what newspapers she reads on a regular basis to stay informed. The Journalist cum Governor cum VP Candidate got involved in the following verbal version of Chevy Chase playing President Ford:
COURIC: And when it comes to establishing, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and understand the world?

PALIN: I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.

COURIC: Like what ones specifically?

PALIN: Umm… all of them. Any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news… Alaska isn’t a foreign country where it’s kind of suggested it seems like, wow how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, DC may be thinking and doing, when you live up there in Alaska. Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.
I believe she should be in the cast of Heroes for season 3; every time Palin speaks, the basic lack of coherence causes short-circuits in the analytical parts of thinking peoples' brains with the apparent, intentional goal of turning the country into a bunch of drooling goons who will finally accept the still lingering bullshit fear that Obama is a Muslim. In other words, her super power is the ability to make the world like West Virginia and guarantee a McCain landslide.

McCain's gonna make Palin get a restraining order against Couric any minute now. The biggest indicator of Palin's lack of intelligence is her continued willingness to answer Couric's questions.

My rightwinger coworkers HATE Katie Couric and her meanie ways. How dare she try to make darling Sarah look foolish!

I heard she was related to Dan(potatoe)Quail. What's ironic is although she's a nubie, she has the uncanny ability to fill in her blanks with speech, instead of dead silence (Couric: "Can you name any other Supreme Court cases...?") She may sound silly now, but she'll probably perfect the technique, and sound just like all the other politicians.
