okay. i generally try to keep politics out of this space because we all have our own opinions and i'm not one to force mine on others. but i had to post this video. i watched palin's speech at the rnc and thought she did a stellar job for her first time on the national stage. but while being a strong public speaker is admirable, the greater testament is when that strength and knowledge is innate and not trained or prompted via a script. hence the value of interviews like this one.

simply put - this short clip is appalling. i don't care if your pro-woman, pro-republican, or pro-hockey moms becoming vice president. i don't care that she supports causes i strongly disagree with or that she lacks the experience i think a vp should have. this video by itself is a testament to the fact that this human being has absolutely no place in the white house (nor leading the state of alaska for that matter). the fact that people are willing to overlook this rhetoric (or lack thereof) because of a competition or a desire to belong and defend their beliefs regardless the outcome is saddening...

You want to get more annoyed? Go to Google: http://www.google.com/trends

And compare the volume of results for "Sarah Palin foreign policy" and "Sarah Palin naked"...

Nice to know the voting public's priorities eh?

You know what came to mind as I was watching this clip? Remember that former Miss America contestnat's speech with that was peppered with "US Americans," "The Iraq," and "South Africa" references? Pretty close, isnt it?!?!
