The ignorance of Sarah

This from FOX News: [Yes, that FOX News!]

"There was great concern in the McCain campaign that Sarah Palin lack[ed] the degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, and a heartbeat away from the presidency. We're told by folks that she didn't know what countries that were in NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, that being the Canada (sic), the US, and Mexico. We're told she didn't understand that Africa was a continent rather than a country just in itself ... a whole host of questions that caused serious problems about her knowledgeability. She got very angry at staff, thought that she was mishandled....was particularly angry about the way the Katie Couric interview went. She didn't accept preparation for that interview when the aides say that that was part of the problem. And that there were times that she was hard to control emotionally there's talk of temper trantrums at bad news clippings....."

She will implode eventually. There must be Republicans, conservatives, etc with knowledge around. If the Republican Party is to survive, it needs more knowledgeable people with a broader outlook than the usual narrow, single issues people that seem to have taken over. Perhaps there should be a separate religious party so that the wider issues can be taken up by a united opposition party. It used to work well, until Newt Gingrich and Tom DeLay came along and made party more important than country. Too bad. Maybe it will change now. I hope so. We need two parties to explore all issues and find ways to work out differences for he good of all.
