The scariest thing I have heard is that despite everything that has happened and everything that has come out in the past few days,
ninety-one percent (91%) of Republicans have a favorable view of Palin, including 65% who say their view is Very Favorable. Only eight percent (8%) have an unfavorable view of her, including three percent (3%) Very Unfavorable.
When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin.
Now that it is over, we hear that she didn’t know that Africa is a continent not a country. Or which countries are in Nafta. Her ignorance expands rather than contracts the more we “know” her, and her behavior during this election was anything but presidential. Is this the best the GOP can come up with? I know that it is early for the prognostications but are they blind? Did Fox News actually succeed in making people believe Palin was the victim of slander and that she is really capable of leading this country? If so, they are brilliant. I suspect it is more that the public is really stupid. But then Fox News depends on that being true. Heaven help us all.
