I’m glad we have a hockey mom to teach us civics. Not only didn’t I know that the Vice President runs the Senate, I didn’t even know that the First Amendment is there to protect officials from criticism by reporters.
Of course, I don’t feel too bad about my ignorance, since Jefferson (who said that he’d rather have newspaper but no government than government with no newspapers) seems to have shared it.
How do you think Sara Palin feels about her ignorance? More important, how do educated independent and Republican voters feel about it?
Clearly, Larry Eagleburger had it right the first time: not only is Palin not ready to be President now, she never will be ready. But, consistent with his political principles, Eagleburger decided to retract the truth and replace it with the politically correct lie.
