All's Quiet On The Palin Front

First, the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz slips this sentence into an article mostly discussing the media's political coverage:

And the worst may be yet to come for Palin; sources say CBS has two more responses on tape that will likely prove embarrassing.

Needless to say, this led to speculation in some corners, wondering exactly what could be more damning than the CBS footage already released. It turned out that the comments weren't in relation to last week's interview with Katie Couric; that the responses being discussed came during the Vice Presidential Questions segment CBS will be airing in the build up to Thursday's VP Debate.

The Politico's Jonathan Martin was able to discern what one of these gaffes were:

...[A Palin aide] 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.

On the other hand, have you heard that she's a quick study, and has a nice butt to boot?

I heard about this on Olbermann tonight. I mean, come on. Who can't come up with at least Brown v. Board of Education? The Dred Scott case? Shit, not even Bush v. Gore?

She is a frightening aberration. She makes Quayle look polished.

p.s. Anderson Cooper on his 360 blog has an entry which confirms her idiotic foreign policy credential that we can actually see Russia from Alaska.
