Ignorant as the dirt, that is.
Of concern to McCain's campaign, however, is a remaining and still-undisclosed clip from Palin's interview with Couric last week that has the political world buzzing.
The Palin aide, after first noting how "infuriating" it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions. After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.
There was no verbal fumbling with this particular question as there was with some others, the aide said, but rather silence.
She wants to be VP, and quite possibly President, where she'll be responsible for appointing Supreme Court justices, and that's the only court case she even knows.
Well, why would she know any others? Taking away the right of women to own their own bodies -- that's the only important fight on the table! Screw Brown v Board of Education, or Miranda v Arizona, or Hustler v Falwell (I like that one), or Lawrence v Texas....but you'd think she'd know, say, Boumediene v Bush? Given it's her party with its policy on the line?
Unless, of course, she really is fucking stupid?
