Oh. My. God.

This has to be seen to be believed (and yes, this is the THIRD decent Shep Smith interview on here):
She didn’t know what countries are in NAFTA? She thought AFRICA WAS A COUNTRY? Are you FUCKING SHITTING ME??! And they KEPT HER ON THE TICKET??!! And people in this country were SUPPORTING HER FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES???!!!! I seriously think I’m going to be sick. It’s like the realization that you just barely avoided a car crash.
Andrew Sullivan (a conservative!) says it all:
“Now all I want to say here, ahem, is that they realized all this about this person within a few days of picking her and yet they went ahead for two months bullshitting us … and risking the live possibility that she could be president of the United States at a moment’s notice after next January.
You know: I took a lot of grief for my pretty instant realization back in August that the Palin candidacy was a total farce. But when you cop to the fact that the McCain peeps knew most of that too very early on after their world-historical screw-up, you’ve got to respect and be terrified by their cynicism. I mean: country first?
And they only lost by a few points?”
