The Panama Canal is a busy ditch.
I know it’s un-PC and a cheap laugh even if you’re the last person on the planet to have heard that joke, but as I mentioned to someone this past weekend, if you can’t be un-PC and have a cheap laugh on the Internet, where else can you?
So even though by now in news-cycle time it’s archival material, I just have to get this off my chest before recovering from writing a bit about the Germany Expat Blogger meetup in Bremen.
Because this interview with Sarah Palin by Katie Couric took place not long before the 30 of us were converging on Bremen, where the entire weekend we were all trying NOT to talk about Sarah Palin. Holding our breath, changing the subject, inventing goofy, nonsense adjectives, anything, ANYTHING but talk of Sarah Palin.
As Jack Cafferty’s intro says, there’s a reason the McCain camp has been keeping Palin away from the press.
Is there any better way to illustrate the fact that this woman is out of her league? Grossly underqualified?
A high school debating team third-stringer would have come to the interview better prepared to answer that question. And Wolf Blitzer tries to come to her rescue? He should be pulled off the desk for defending such a trash performance.
I came across this thanks to a blogger you all should get to know: Deus ex Malcontent.
Also known as Chez Pazienza, the former CNN sluggo and award-winning producer turned autobiographical author turned Huffington Post poster turned full-time Dad is great at telling it straight, with links that are always worth going to.
And I just love this line: If bullshit were currency, Sarah Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.
