Sarah Palin

Too much good stuff not to quote. Most of this is coming from DailyKos.
This from Politico
In an interview just a month ago, she dissed the job, saying it didn’t seem “productive.”

In fact, she said she doesn’t know what the vice president does.

Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.” asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain ticket mate.
Palin replied: “[A]s for that V.P. talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the V.P. does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that V.P .slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”
Umm, I hope she figures out what exactly the Veep is supposed to do before she takes office. Actually, I hope that isn't a problem.

Here are what the conservatives on MSNBC had to say.
Pat Buchanan:
Biggest political gamble I believe just about in American political history...that is not hyberbole. I can think of no choice of VP that approaches this.

Joe Scarborough:
I can't imagine a woman that's been a governor for a year and a half, but to debate Joe Biden on Georgia, a remerging Russia, an emerging China and India, on the Middle East, my God, how does she do that?


Update: I meant to mention this and just plain forgot but she is currently facing an ethics investigation over some weird scandal involving a bitter divorce and pressuring someone to fire her ex-brother-in-law from his state trooper job. She'll fit right in.
