Sarah Palin: What’s The Supreme Court?

For those of you feeling glum over the looming economic crisis, here’s a fun tidbit to perk you up.

Per Jonathan Martin:

In reintroduction, Palin to do more interviews and “tell her story”: Of concern to McCain’s campaign, however, is a remaining and still-undisclosed clip from Palin’s interview with Couric last week that has the political world buzzing.

The Palin aide, after first noting how “infuriating” it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions.

After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.

There was no verbal fumbling with this particular question as there was with some others, the aide said, but rather silence.

oh….that’s bad

Not even Planned Parenthood v Casey. Or, I don’t know, BROWN V BOARD OF EDUCATION?

Sounds like Sarah Palin needs to reintroduce herself to the concept of reading.

UPDATE: HERE’S THE TRANSCRIPT:

COURIC: What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?

PALIN: Well, let’s see. There’s –of course –in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are–those issues, again, like Roe v Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know–going through the history of America, there would be others but–

COURIC: Can you think of any?

PALIN: Well, I could think of–of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a Vice President, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.

One thought on “Sarah Palin: What’s The Supreme Court?

  1. I know what the Supreme Court is but, what is reading? Can’t she just get the Cliff’s notes on the Supreme Court? Or maybe they have some audio version explaining the judicial branch of the government with James Earl Jones narrating. After Obama wins the election, Palin can take a ride home on the “swift kick in the ass” back to nowhere, since they never made the bridge.
