Yes, she actually said this - !!

Katie Couric: Why isn't it better, Gov. Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries; allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

Gov. Sarah Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the -- it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

I swear I Am not making this up. This was Sarah Palin's actual press statement. Sept. 2008

This has to be a setup for the debate. There is no way in earth she is that dumb.

I thought this too, but regardless on how she does on the debate, there are too many clips like this out there that can be made into ads.
I mean, sure if she doesn't stumble during the debate, the Reds will herald her as the Second Coming, but Bidesn isn't that stupid. The Obama camp will not let themselves get overconfident.

Apparently during the interview she was asked to name Supreme Court cases with which she was familiar, and the only one she could list was Roe v. Wade.  I guess that that segment will be aired later this week.

Re: Yes, she actually said this - !!

I saw her say this during the Couric interview. There is a great piece coming out where she talks about the constituion and Roe v. Wade. She stares blankly at Couric when asked what other cases she knows about. She's an interesting counterpoint to McCain. He just flat out lies like a cornered bully, blaming everything on someone else. Well, he actually acting more like a cornered animal despite his demonstration of resolving the fiscal crisis once and for all. It's unfair to just call Palin, uh, not especially smart. That is absolutely no reason for McCain to drop her from the ticket. I mean, this was a brilliant pick for someone to be President should anything happen to him.

I've said this many times

but Sarah Palin was the primary reason why I switched from McCain to Obama.  She is a complete embarrassment to the political process and is damn scary.
