“I think she has pretty thoroughly — and probably irretrievably — proven that she is not up to the job of being president of the United States,” David Frum, a former speechwriter for President Bush who is now a conservative columnist, said in an interview.Uh-oh. But wait, there's MORE:
Polling suggests that the number of Americans who think she is not fit to be president has increased since her introduction to the country last month. A number of conservative columnists and thinkers have publicly turned against her, or criticized Mr. McCain for choosing her, including George Will, David Brooks and Kathleen Parker, who wrote a column entitled “She’s Out of Her League” for the National Review Online.But this last part should send a chill down everyone's spine:
Mr. Frum noted the difficulty that Dan Quayle, who was elected vice president in 1988, had in recovering from an early set of mistakes that led him to be ridiculed as an intellectual lightweight. “The story of Dan Quayle is he did probably 1,000 smart things as vice president, but his image was locked in and it was very difficult to turn around,” he said. “And Dan Quayle never in his life has performed as badly as Sarah Palin in the last month.” [Emphasis added.]Some reminders.
Vice-President Potatoe on the environment:THAT Dan Quayle. According to David Frum, he never (NEVER) performed as badly as Sarah Palin.
It’s not pollution that is hurting the environment, it’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.On 9/11:
There were no Palestinians riding on planes on September 9th.And then the classic:
What a waste it is to lose one's mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is.
