Let's all feel bad for poor Sarah Palin

She who wants to help the run the country is apparently being inappropriately maligned by  ... wait for it .... an internet MEME! OH NOEZ!!!!!!!

Because you know, accuracy of internet memes determine the course of this country. *nod*

But back to ppppooooooooooorrrrrrrr Sarah *sniffle*

Couric didn't ask her to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe versus Wade, but to name one that she disagreed with. That was left off of the internet meme. Bad internet meme, bad!

So to be fair here to smart and spunky Sarah, let's give her the benefit of the doubt and know that as someone with the extensive executive experience she claims, she can answer the question Couric posed in a poised and thoughtful manner even if she doesn't carry a list in her back pocket of SCOTUS decisions she disagrees with.

Well - you decide. Following is the text of her answer:

PALIN: Well, let's see. There's --of course --in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are -- those issues, again, like Roe v Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know -- going through the history of America, there would be others but--"

COURIC: Can you think of any?

PALIN: Well, I could think of -- of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a Vice President, if I'm so privileged to serve, wouldn't be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.

Gee. Now, I feel SO BAD I picked on her. I feel even worse that Biden was able to answer quickly and directly. What does he think he is running for anyway - the Vice Presidency??
