Jack Cafferty: Palin Interview With Couric "Scary" And "Pathetic"



Contrary to Campbell Brown's assertion that the McCain camp is shielding Sarah Palin from the press due to sexism, Jack Cafferty of CNN let us know that it was due to realism on the campaign's part.

Cafferty proceeded to play another incoherent Palin response to Katie Couric, in an interview that is now assuming legendary status.

Don't expect me to disentangle the threads of Palin's response to a question about the bailout package. I'd burn too many brain cells in the attempt. You'll have to listen to her response above to believe it.

After the video, Cafferty paused and asked, "Did you get that?"

Cafferty then said, "If John McCain wins, this woman will be one 72-year-old's heartbeat away from being President of the United States. And if that doesn't scare the hell out of you, it should." He invited viewers to post a comment on whether Palin is qualified to be vice president. To read some of the overwhelmingly negative responses, click here.

Cafferty concluded, "I'm 65 and have been covering politics...for a long time. That is one of the most pathetic pieces of tape I've ever seen from someone aspiring to one of the highest offices in this country." Wolf Blitzer made a weaselly attempt to soft-pedal Palin's nonsensical response, but Cafferty was having none of it. He told Blitzer not to "make excuses."

Anyone who isn't frightened by the prospect of a Palin presidency by now is as clueless as she is.

Thanks! Cafferty really spoke for all of us who are appalled at the prospect of a Palin vice presidency...or, perish the thought, presidency.
