Did She Stand on the Shore and Wave?

My intelligence continues to be insulted.

I don't know which is worse...... the idea that disaffected female Hillary Clinton supporters are squealing in delight over James Dobson's favorite hottie, Sarah Palin, or the suggestion that geography alone provides foreign policy experience.

The events temporarily overshadowed a more traditionally political pre-convention debate over McCain's decision to name Palin to his ticket. She was mayor of small-town Wasilla, Alaska, for six years before she became governor in December 2006.

McCain's wife, Cindy, joined the ranks of the defenders. "The experience that she comes from is with what she's done in the government. And also, remember: Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia. So, it's not as if she doesn't understand what's at stake here," she said on ABC's "This Week."

I can't wait to hear what Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert do with this line of reasoning.
