Palin and McCain; Pinky and the Brain?

They're Palin and McCain;
Yes, Palin and McCain.
He might be a terrorist. She's definitely insane.
Vote red not twice, but thrice;
And we'll surely pay the price.
They're Palin...They're Palin and McCain, 'Cain, 'Cain, 'Cain.

In McCain's quest to take over America, Palin most faithfully continues goofing up. McCain endeavours to rescue both Palin and the Republican candidacy and, quite possibly, slaps Palin upside the head off-camera. For the past week, these two elephants have been up to so many adorable antics. I make reference to Palin's interviews with news anchor, Katie Couric, on the CBS Evening News. Judge for yourself:
Interview #1
Couric asks Palin which newspapers and magazines she reads.
Couric: "What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for [Vice-Presidency] to stay informed and to understand the world?"
Palin: "I've read most of them; again, with a great appreciation for the press for the media for--"
Couric: "But like, what ones specifically. I'm curious--"
Palin: "Umm. All of them. Any of them that, umm, have been in front of me over all these years--"
Couric: "Can you name a few?"
Palin: "I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news."
Interview #2
After Palin states that McCain has a track record of regulating Wall Street, Couric asks Palin to provide specific examples of McCain's past efforts to regulate.
Couric: "I'm just going to ask you one more time; not to belabor the point: specific examples in his [McCain's] 26 years of pushing for more regulation." Palin: "Uhhh-I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to ya'."
Interview #3
Couric: "You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?"
Palin: "That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side the land boundary that we have with, uh, Canada-- It's funny that a comment like that was kinda' made to charact-- I don't know..."
Couric: "Mocked?"
Palin: "Yeah, mocked. I guess that's the word, yeah. Umm--"
Couric: "Well explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials."
Palin: "Well it certainly does because our next-door neighbours are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And, there in Russia--"
Couric: "Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?"
Palin: "We have trade missions back and forth. We, we-- It's very important when you consider even national security with Russia as, Putin [President of Russia] 'where's his head?' and...and comes into the airspace of the United States of America. Where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to, umm, to our state."

lol @ anon... what evidence has she given you that shes qualified to be the vice president, and even president if McCain were to die? the woman is just beginning her political career, she has no real experience that qualifies her to lead this country, and there's absolutely no way to argue otherwise. its a cold hard fact.
