Grown ups, to the GOP tent. Grown ups, please report to the GOP tent.
An excellent piece by Fred Kaplan at Slate asks where all the grown ups have gone in the Republican party:
Palin is someone who has clearly never seriously thought through any issue of national importance on her own. She’s excellent at reciting a raucous speech, but she can’t improvise a coherent sentence, which usually reflects an inability to form a coherent idea. (At Nashville, she even had to scribble her five-word legislative agenda on her palm, and glanced down at it during the Q&A.) She is deluded enough to believe (or at least to say Sunday morning on Fox News) that her brief, aborted stint as Alaska’s governor gave her more executive experience than President Obama has even now. She believes that the country should elect leaders, including presumably herself, who seek solutions in “divine intervention.”
This is the way people think the country should governed?
