The long knives

If you believe the latest stories about Sarah Palin, coming from Republican sources, then it's a pretty amazing thing to have a vice-presidential candidate who doesn't know which countries participate in NAFTA, confuses Africa for a country rather than a continent, and who stumbles as badly as Palin did in her one-on-one interviews with ABC, CBS, and Fox.

But these are Republican sources! They knew who they were dealing with at the same time they were marketing her to the country. They waited until after the election to start dishing on her as a dangerously ignorant, unqualified candidate. And their campaign motto was, "Country First."

Really? Really??

After eight years of this nonsense, the biggest relief will be to be rid of these faux patriots for once or for all.
