Sans-a-Blink Sarah blinked

She sucked eggs. Big ‘ole moose eggs (Do moose have eggs?).

What?

You want me to give her credit for what? For not melting on stage? For not being able to answer a question? For thinking the sub-prime mess has something to do with energy? For wanting to expand the powers of the vice-presidency even though she has, by her own admission, no idea what the vice-president does?

I said before her convention speech that if she got her name right it would be considered a success. That’s how low the bar was then.

And she managed to lower it even more in the month since that time. Hell, the bar was so low that even Bristol’s supposed unborn child could have crawled over it. It was so low even a drunk George Bush could have bellied up to it.

So by those standards she did what she needed to do. But I would like anyone who thought it was a success to consider one thing.

Sarah Palin has said that she admires both Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro. Imagine if either of those women were on stage last night and turned in the performance that Sarah Palin did. They would have been laughed off the stage before it was even over.

Just because she made it through means nothing. She had a stack of three-by-fives she was reading from. And she could barely read those.

She’s a failure. Get over it. And Republicans need to get in the business of finding a woman with brains to represent their brand. Sarah Palin proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that simply having breasts and a vagina is not enough. She is an insult to women everywhere and it was the most blatantly sexist pick John McCain could have made.
