Thinking Is Overrated, Continued

Here's Palin on the bailout:

This is pathetic:

COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families 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?

PALIN: That’s why I say, I like ever American I’m speaking with were ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bailout.

But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Helping the — Oh, it’s got to be 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 Americas.

And trade we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive scary thing. But 1 in 5 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.
The bailout is about healthcare reform. Really? You're serious? That's your answer?

It is painful to watch, painful to read, and painful to think about the possibility she could be the leader of the free world.

She had to check her notes midway through an answer about the bailout to talk about job creation? What the crap is she talking about? Some question she imagined in her head?
I get this feeling about her like I'm watching the movie "Seven" for the first time, and I realize right before the end what is in the box at Kevin Spacey's feet. It's like some warped, butterflies-type feeling that makes you feel like some imaginery line has been crossed and you're a character in a surreal Escher sketch, and you are suffering from vertigo.

Is this for real?
