The McCain Campaign Sputters on

Here's something scary to imagine: Sarah Palin having any sort of role in the White House. This is from her interview with Katie Couric (by way of the LA Times) -

"That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in . . . where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh -- it's got to be all about job creation too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, um, scary thing, but 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that."

What the hell is she talking about? She's sitting there with the chick from Good Morning America, y'know? This is the slow and easy pitch if ever there is one. How can anyone have faith in the leadership decisions of someone that would choose her as a running mate?
