There she goes again

Well I know I feel better. Sarah Palin says she's ready to be president.

Of course she says she would consider putting us into a third war -- this one with Russia, which has nukes. And like the man she hopes to replace, she says that Saddam Hussein had a connection to the 9-11 attacks.

The McCain camp is apparently so confident in her abilities that it plans to keep campaigning with her, limiting her direct exposure to celebrity situations and away from tough questions.

Palin apparently didn't screw up too badly after being prepped and rehearsed for a week -- although anyone who wants to lead the United States should have at least a passing understanding of the Bush doctrine, the term that is at the foundation of the mess this country finds itself in today.

If the success measurement is "she didn't make a fool of herself" McCain and Palin will be trumpeting today.

But I'd like to see her without the training wheels -- the way she would be if that phone rang at 3 a.m.

Her performance with Gibson scared the hell out of me, knowing she as a real shot of being president within the next 4 years. She reminded me of a high school kid who didn't do her homework and was trying to bluff her way through the teacher's questions. Not just on the Bush Doctrine thing (which was painful to watch) but other questions as well * like trying to claim national security credentials because her state produces oil and gee you can even SEE Russia from parts of Alaska.
