38 percent of Americans are idiots

According to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, 52 percent of Americans would "definitely not" vote for Sarah Palin for president in 2012.

But drilling deeper in the above-cited article, I discovered that nearly 4 in 10 of those surveyed believe her to be qualified for the presidency.

There are certain things worth fighting and arguing over. The Democrats' asinine health care bill, the bloated, laughable stimulus, taxes, abortion, judicial philosophies, and the role of the federal government. But it is not worth trying to argue to normal, clear-thinking Americans that Sarah Palin is qualified to be president.

I've written here before that Sarah Palin appeals to the lowest common denominator in the Republican Party. There exists nothing -- absolutely nothing -- about Sarah Palin's character, her record, her experience or her way of viewing the world -- that should indicate to you that she is even remotely qualified for the presidency. Culminating with her abrupt resignation from the Alaska governorship in July, she has demonstrated herself to be so sorely unfit for that office that it is beyond laughable.

For the love of all things good and holy, according to a recent Fox News report, she apparently made the discovery that I did at age 7, when I learned that Africa was actually a continent.

A Palin administration would give us a third Bush administration, with even greater levels of corruption, arrogance and incompetence. I didn't think it was possible for a Republican president to perform any more poorly than George W. Bush, but that was before Sarah Palin began considering herself presidential timber.

I'm baffled. Thirty-eight percent of you really believe that Sarah Palin is qualified to be president?

You're out of your minds.
