An earnest student

Watch the blinking eyes, the practiced, fine-tuned suppressed panic, the stalling for time, the questioning of terms she should know, all followed by the insertion of memorized boilerplate intended to fill time but to answer nothing. How is this any different than the student responding to oral examination when she's read only the CliffsNotes and is desperately trying to bullshit her way through the test? Teachers and professors see this all the time.

Sarah Palin. The most qualified Republican to be vice president.
