Quote of the day on Sarah Palin

Jimmy Kimmel:

"John McCain showed up (for the Washington DC meeting to discuss the financial rescue package) without running mate Sarah Palin, which is a shame because she actually has a lot of experience with financial matters. You know, she lives right next to a bank."

Kimmel obviously is doing his job as a comedian. People will however continue to poke fun at Palin's questionable qualifications as McCain's vice presidential nominee as long as she continues to outrageously claim that one of her main foreign policy credentials is the fact that she can see Russia from Alaska.

I am really getting tired of the anti-Palin stuff I'm hearing everywhere. I'm so tired of it in fact that once I hear an anti-Palin crack from someone, I've noticed that I'm tuning out EVERYTHING they subsequently say, no mater what the subject.

This is Sarah Palin's response when Katie Couric asked her how living in the state closest to Russia gave her foreign-policy experience:

"It's very important when you consider even national-security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America. Where—where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to—to our state."

Case closed. Palin should do America/world a favor and get out of the race.
