Wilfully Ignorant

More Palin Interviews

COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?

PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —

COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.

PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news

and I have been told by Palin supporters that she holds a Journalism degree.

She is not stupid, not dumb, but uninformed by choice.

She can only name one supreme court decision, she returns other questions with out of context talking points or blank stares.

Palin can be charming, witty and engaging, but you can't claim she is well informed or even interested in being well informed.

no no is usually a blank stare followed by an out of context talking point.

She soooo reminds me of how beauty contestants reply to the simplest of questions. Just smile and look pretty, hopefully you will win the tiara. Only she could possibly win the seat of the President of the United States. This is unfreakinbelievable!
