If you watched Charlie Gibson's interview with Sarah Palin, your heart probably stopped, just as mine did, when he asked her if she agreed with the Bush Doctrine.
She had no idea what he was talking about.
In fact throughout the interview, Palin's body language said it all. She was slouched, bending forward. She had a lost look in her eyes, and it was almost as if you could see her brain grasping around for answers. Like a typical student who feels that they're going to fail a college oral examination, she prevaricated every time she was asked a question she didn't fully understand; you could see the panicked "gulp" in her throat. She looked embarrassed ... nervous ... almost apologetic.
And this woman could be a heartbeat away from becoming the "leader of the free world."
And not just that. But she pretty much turned Russia into an American enemy. Crikey.
The Russian government, whom I'm sure was watching, should come out with a statement about that.
In her ignorance, she's a loose cannon. Geez, for all we know, she could get the Cold War started again with her careless remarks.
