    Default Sarah Palin unable to name Supreme Court case other than Roe v. Wade

    I'm so not surprised about this.

    Latest Palin Gaffe: Can't Name Supreme Court Case Other Than Roe V. Wade



    Today, the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reported on potentially embarrassing clips of Sarah Palin being interviewed by Katie Couric that haven't yet been aired. The Politico has more information on one in particular:
    Of concern to McCain's campaign, however, is a remaining and still-undisclosed clip from Palin's interview with Couric last week that has the political world buzzing.
    The Palin aide, after first noting how "infuriating" it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions.
    After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.
    There was no verbal fumbling with this particular question as there was with some others, the aide said, but rather silence.

    She should read a fucking newspaper.. maybe then she'll kind of get the hint that she isn't fooling anyone. Well, ok, she is fooling some, but that's not really relevant.

    Brown vs Board of Education

    I hope those clips are released at some point. I just saw a new clip of Palin being interviewed by Couric again with McCain on CNN. Must be airing tonight. She reaffirmed that she's ready, willing and able.

    Jesus that's scary. Anyone really can be president now.

    She really couldn't name or discuss Brown vs Board of Ed? Plessy v Ferguson? U.S. v Nixon? Seriously?

    Holy crap - they ought to impeach her from Alaska. It is an actual state and some basic knowledge of the country's history and laws should be a prerequisite to office. I renew my offer to let the rest of the world take this election for the US - there is NO WAY this race should be this close after the last 8 years.

    This is how our coutry works...

    Legislature enacts the laws
    Judicial Branch interprets the laws and the

    Executive Branch ENFORCES the laws...how in the hell can she be the executive of anything if she doesn't even know what the law are?

    Someone pulleaze return this redneck back from whence she came.

    I think she is just a PTA mom who got in waaay over her hear. She knows what she thinks she needs to know. Roe Vs.Wade, birth control, gun rights, and Russia. I shouldn't laugh because it is scary.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    A good start would be 'see spot. see spot run.' No one really knows how literate she is and maybe that is the problem. It's making me think that perhaps she's been propped up for a while, particularly as governer. Maybe it's Todd or the Abramoff linked group that supported her campaign, or something, but this level of incompetency is bizarre. I am pretty sure most mayors could have done better with Couric, and certainly most if not all governors could.
