If you really believe that any Joe off the street can be pumped full of facts and figures then put in the White House as leader of the US and the Western World, then you'll be quite comfortable with Sarah Palin's performance in the VP debate last night.
In a debate to help decide who becomes the next president, we hear again and again about having been mayor of a sub-10,000 population town. Give me a break.
The president of the US could find her or himself across the table from world leaders who have enough firepower to destroy all life on earth. My God, how laughable to believe that anything learned as mayor of a town not much larger than a Canadian village could be relevant in such a confrontation.
