In a dangerous world
It was bad enough that Sarah's performance in the first televised interviews she has done since she joined the Republican ticket was so visibly scripted and lacking in awareness.
What made it so much worse is the strategy for which the Republicans have made Palin the frontwoman: win the White House not on ideas, not on clarity of the conservative message but by denigrating experience, sound judgment and qualifications.
The idea that Americans want leaders who have none of those things — who are so blindly certain of what Sarah Palin without even knowing her record. You're so excited to follow her as she calls “the mission”, most of you don't know what the mission is. Sarah's abuses and unethical behavior made none of so-called conservatives blink, they won’t even pause for reflection, reason or prayer — shows a contempt for voters and raises frightening questions about how Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin plan to run this country.
In a dangerous world, Americans need a presidential team who knows that real strength requires serious thought, preparation and proper decision making skills.
