Like most Americans, last week I watched the excerpt from Sarah Palin's interview with Charles Gibson, in which Palin all but admits that she has no fucking clue what the Bush Doctrine is:



And like many Americans (I'd like to also say "most" there, but I'm too cynical to believe that to be true), I find it pretty alarming that the person who, if her doddering old running mate is elected, could literally be one heartbeat away from the presidency, is someone who a) has no idea what the Bush Doctrine is, b) doesn't seem to have any clue that the U.S. government has, of late, literally been overstepping its bounds in Pakistan, c) appears physically incapable of giving a direct answer.

But upon reflection, that is not the only thing about this clip that disturbs me. I also find the way Palin calls Charles Gibson "Charlie" every three seconds really creepy. Not only is it obvious filler, but it strikes me as an attempt at excessive friendliness as a means of deflecting from the issues. It's as if Palin honestly believes that if she successfully turns on that ol' charm that landed her the Miss Congeniality title so many years ago, nobody will ever realize that she has no idea what she's talking about, or that she's a big, scary, neofascist right-winger theocrat who literally believes that most of this country is going to hell in her lifetime.

Besides, the more I watch this clip, the more it reminds me of yet another YouTube classic:



OMG SARAH PALIN IS GOING TO STEAL MY KIDNEYS
