The Politico's Jonathan Martin
has this latest gob-smacking tidbit about the ignorance of McCain's VP nomination:
The Palin aide, after first noting how "infuriating" it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions.
After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.
There was no verbal fumbling with this particular question as there was with some others, the aide said, but rather silence.
We should have the footage soon
. We'll see. Egad. I could come up with a few off the top of my head: the Kelo case on eminent domain, the Leadbetter case about when you can sue for pay discrimination, Hamdan about the rights of detainees, Bush vs. Gore. And those are just recent ones. If I get to dig in the history books, Marbury vs. Madison (judicial review, IIRC), Griswald vs. Connecticut (legalizing birth control), Brown vs Board of Education (segregation illegal). How did this woman get elected governor of anything? Aren't Alaskans embarrassed?
