Sarah "I'm a hockey mom so don't ask me 'bout no foreign policy crap" Palin hadn't a friggin' clue what Charlie Gibson meant when he asked her about the Bush doctrine in the ABC interview a few days ago, and Republican commenters here on Wizbang Blue have spent the afternoon trying to convince themselves that it doesn't matter blah blah... that none of the candidates could answer that question blah blah... and that "bush Doctrine" just a term the media uses and isn't in the political vernacular anyway blah blah blah...
Not a clue. Not a clue. Not a friggin' clue. It's foreign policy 101 and Sarah Palin, with her Moose in the headlights eyes wide open, tried to bullshit her way through an answer.
Sarah Palin was added to the Republican ticket by Karl Rove based on polls and demographics, not on qualifications -- and with aging, post-cancerous McCain in the role of President, Sarah Palin would be one heartbeat away. This hockey mom turned bulldog is plainly and simply not qualified for the job.
Update: John McCain -- on the Fox News Republican debate October, 2007 -- discounting Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney's qualifications for the office of President.
"I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training. I wasn't a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn't a governor for a short period of time."
- John McCain on Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney in Fox News Republican Debate on October 21, 2007
Guiliani was mayor of New York city for 8 years, and according to McCain wasn't qualified for the office of President.
Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts for four years and according to McCain would have needed 'on-the job' training.
Sarah Palin, moose hunter, small town mayor, and governor for two years is by John McCain's standards not qualified for the office of President.
But the polls told John McCain that he could pick up a few votes if he chose a conservative woman, so he reached for Palin -- putting politics above the country.
Sarah Palin is unqualified for the job.
