Simple, blunt and right

CNN’s Jack Cafferty delivers the brutal verdict on Sarah Palin’s candidacy:

Cafferty’s conclusion for those of you without video or audio: “If John McCain wins this woman will be one 72-year-old’s heartbeat away from being President of the United States. And if that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, it should.”

And you know what was the best part of SNL this weekend? When lampooning Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric, the SNL writers used parts of Palin’s actual answers and still got laughs:

Andrew Sullivan runs down the irrefutable and un-retracted lies of Sarah Palin:

Palin could not have asked her girls for permission to accept McCain’s veep offer if she also says she accepted the offer unblinkingly and right away. Palin did fire a police chief even as she insisted to a reporter she hadn’t. She did violate the confidential medical records of Mike Wooten. She hasn’t met with any trade missions from Russia. She does not have any gay friends that anyone can find. She did not oppose the Bridge to Nowhere. She did not sell that plane on eBay. Her Teleprompter did not fail in her convention speech. Alaska’s state scientists did not conclude that polar bears were in no danger. She did deny publicly that humans had anything to do with climate change.

Alaska does not provide “nearly 20 percent of the U.S. domestic supply of energy,” as she claimed. The gas pipeline she touts as her major “mission accomplished” has not broken ground and may never do so. She did not take a pay-cut as mayor of Wasilla. And on and on. Anyone with Google can check all of these out. Including reporters.

She’s pathological.

    oh and SNL was great. my favorite part was when she stumbled through a bunch of words that sounded OK but had no substance. kind of like when Fred Armisen does Nicholas Fehn the political comedian (probably my current favorite character)

    I’m sorry that my bank had to eat your bank. But I like my bank so all will be well.
