Oh, how wrong I was.
Whatever Palin's shortcomings, stupidity is certainly not among them. She wouldn't have been chosen if McCain didn't believe she could stand up against Joe Biden in a debate.
I have a good feeling she'll surprise everyone . . .
But apparently I'm not the only one who regrets giving Palin the benefit of the doubt, particularly after her embarrassingly awful resignation speech:
I liked Sarah Palin and supported her inclusion on the GOP ticket last fall. I thought she had more toughness than this. It’s a big disappointment, and it’s the end of any hope of Palin getting taken seriously as a politician on the national level in the future.
