She scared YOU?
The possibility of her being elected veep with a physically frail president, scared the living beejesus out of me, and most of the civilised world, yes.
Her appalling ignorance of the world, of complexity in general, her simplistic and christian right slogan philosophy, the fact that even her Repub handlers knew her to be so naive and ignorant that they never allowed her actually to be exposed to proper media questioning (I don't mean the slime press, I mean proper examination and challenging of her views, knowledge and abilities) scared me, yes. The speeches (prepared though they were) ans her manner of delivering them in a person close to possible real power scared me, yes.
That the repub machine would put such a person up for election scared me, yes.
I know veeps hitorically are chosen to appeal to the parts of the electorate that the presidential candidate has trouble with and...except during the Cheney presidency...are not much taken seriously...but Palin and a frail oldish man, plus the US history of political assassinations, come on...you have to put up a candidate with some credibility.
And the people Palin has credibility with are kind of scary too.
