You know it's bad when Kathleen Parker is dropping the ax.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, Iíve been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. Iíve also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

This sums things up perfectly:

Palinís recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

Sounds like calls for her to quit the race are really amplifying. Here is Fareed Zakaria - one of the most reasonable guys out there- laying the smack down.

I agree with what Maher said about Palin this week: she's a bimbo. Harsh but tell me it's not true.

Biden isn't exactly immune to sticking his foot in his mouth. Or haven't you seen the clip of him telling the Senator in the wheelchair to stand up and take a bow? Plus, I'm not voting for VP anyway. I think, if elected, McCain/Palin will be similar to Bush/Quayle where the VP is essentially there to appeal to those far-righters but once in office will play a very, very small role.

The potential for Palin becoming President in the event something happens to McCain, small chance as it may be, doesn't concern you at all?

There's a big difference between sticking your foot in your mouth and being completely clueless about the issues.

Biden might be a firecracker who shoots his mouth off, but at least he's knowledgeable about what's going on. Palin looks as if she hasn't even picked up a newspaper in the last five years.

She wouldn't have been my choice for VP. But I don't think she's nearly as clueless as the past month may have indicated. I think she will do a very strong job on Thursday in her debate. But she'll probably make one minor mistake midway through, maybe she'll end a sentence in a proposition, and that'll be all over YT and this board.

I don't think Palin is going to get an invite to Mensa any time soon, but she's hardly the idiot she's made out to be.

It's worth reading the full transcript of the Charlie Gibson interview. Frankly Gibson himself apparently doesn't fully understand what the Bush doctrine is. The camera work was very artfully done to portray Gibson as an imposing character and her in a far more diminutive posture (nothing wrong with that, but something to be aware of), and they cut out quite a bit of material form the interview that's very informative.

Gibson-Palin Interview Transcript (or find it anywhere else, I'm not fan of Mark Levin either, just happened to be tops in the Google search for a transcript)

It concerns me just as much as Biden becoming president, or Cheney becoming president or Al Gore becoming president. There aren't a lot of VPs in recent memory that I would say, "Yeah, NOW we've got someone to really fill in here!"

You're assuming the viewing public knows what a preposition is and where it should be placed.

I get it mixed up too. Sometimes I just don't know where to put it at.

Based on what exactly?

Everytime she opens her mouth she sounds like an idiot. It's beyond the point where anyone can say she was just having an off day.

Maybe she'll prove the haters wrong on Thurs., personally I highly doubt it. I think she'll give plenty of classic YT moments.

Is she really on the same level of the people you mentioned?
