A Bridge To Nowhere Part 2

I am not sure what McCain actually knows about his VP pick, Sarah Palin. He seems to be trying to tell the voters that she is the most qualified person in America to be VPOTUS.

During an interview he was asked about Palin's national security qualifications. His response was is just embarrassingly incoherent.

"Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America. She's a governor of a state where 20% of America's energy supply comes from there. And we all know that energy is a critical and vital national security issue. We've got to stop sending $700 billion of American money to countries that don't like us very much. She's very well versed on that issue."And, uh, she also happens to represent, be governor of a state that's right next to Russia. She understands Russia."

First, the notion that Palin's proximity to Russia counts as national security experience continues to be unusually stupid, even for McCain.

Second, "Energy" is not a response to the question, "What experience does she have in the field of national security?"

Maybe the next time the Republican handlers prep Palin on how to answer questions, McCain should sit in and take a few notes.
