Leave Britney Sarah Aloooone!

UPDATE & bump: Thanks to darkblack we now have video:

Apparently asking questions about the un-vetted GOP VP pick is just out of bounds. At least according to John McCain's team:
"The McCain campaign will have no further comment about our long and thorough process," Schmidt wrote. "This nonsense is over."
Oh, and that "long and thorough process"? Yeah, not so much:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not subjected to a lengthy in-person background interview with the head of Sen. John McCain's vice presidential vetting team until last Wednesday in Arizona, the day before McCain asked her to be his running mate, and she did not disclose the fact that her 17-year-old daughter was pregnant until that meeting, two knowledgeable McCain officials acknowledged Tuesday.
Well, no wonder the McSame camp is so defensive, they gambled on a wild card and have to scramble to explain why their completely unqualified pick is qualified to be a "a heartbeat away" from the presidency.

And the best they could come up with about her 'executive experience' is:
1) She's the Governor of the largest state in the union!
OK, but there are 670,000 people in Alaska, the whole state doesn't even rank, population wise, in the top 15 cities of the US.
Not to mention she's only had the job for less than 2 years.

She was Mayor of Wasilla! Alaska!
OK, but Wasilla's population is less than 2/3rds the size of the folks who showed up to see Ron Paul's convention.

And if you asked "who is Ron Paul?" My answer would be 'exactly my point.' If you know who Ron Paul is my answer would be "who is Sarah Palin?"

She is the Commander of Alaska's National Guard!
Do they really think that is something to brag about!?
Take your pick:
Alaska National Guard faces personnel crisis
Palin hasn't ordered Alaska National Guard to do anything
But wait, if you call now you'll receive actual science about why Sarah Falin' is fit to lead!
It's by osmosis!
