THE DYNAMIC EARTH: A BLOG ABOUT GEOLOGY AND THE EARTH SCIENCES

One MORE Palin thing, and then it's back to geology, I PROMISE!

Oh man oh man oh man! Look at this! Look at this, from FOX NEWS:



So, to sum up, Sarah Palin:

1) thought Africa was a country

2) refused to prepare for the Couric interview

3) and threw "tantrums"

Finally, the pettiness inherent in the republicans is working FOR US! I can't wait...you know that for the next week or so, there is going to be a biblical-scale flood of hilarious anecdotes about Sarah Palin being a complete screw-up.

Oh man, when FOX NEWS is calling a Republican kinda dumb, you know that it is over. Seriously, I bet the Fox News people have all sorts of things posted for sale up on Craigslist; furniture at fire-sale prices, pallets of Ann Coulter books, jingoistic screaming heads for sale by the dozens. Stay tuned! Things are going to get hilarious!

I particularly liked the news ticker at the bottom explaining "there is no set number for a landslide victory" and then stating a landslide is between 300 and 320 electoral votes.

I can't tell if they are confirming it was a landslide or trying to downplay that it was a landslide.

They're trying to do both. While they can't actually deny it was a landslide (in terms of the electoral college), they don't want to make a big deal about it. They are essentially saying "La la la la...what landslide? I can't hear you...la la la la la".

In terms of Palin's ridiculous ignorance (e.g., thinking Africa is a country), Bill O'Reilly actually tried to defend this. He said (I'm paraphrasing) Sarah Palin is smart. Facts like this can be learned with coaching.

I'm sorry, I don't care how quick-witted she might be. Any adult who doesn't know Africa is a continent is either poorly educated, or willfully ignorant. Either way, that makes them unqualified to be a governor, let alone VP.
