Sarah Palin vs. Miss Teen South Carolina: Presidential Qualifications Edition

Posted: Updated:

Watching Sarah Palin in a recent interview attempting to explain to Bill O'Reilly why she possesses the intelligence to be president, I got an eerie sense of deja vu. I'd heard this kind of answer mangling before. So I went on YouTube, found some video, and put this together.

Other than the utter ridiculousness of Palin's answer, there's something important to keep in mind. This interview was recorded on November 20, 2009. Palin's lack of qualifications to be president of the United States was the most important concern about Palin from the first moment she was announced as John McCain's vice-presidential pick on August 29, 2008. The thought of Palin being president and the lack of judgment McCain showed in choosing her as his running mate may have been the deciding factor in the 2008 election. Palin has had over a year to think about the answer to this question, which will decide her political future and possibly the future of America and the world.

And this is what she's come up with.
