Say What?

Earlier this week, John McCain suggested that Sarah Palin "knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States." He added that "we all know that energy is a critical and vital national security issue."

Finally, we have that important foreign policy link we have been looking for. She can see Russia from somewhere in Alaska, but it's her energy knowledge that makes her national security ready.

I do have this question though, is there a person in the country....anyone at all, who actually thinks Sarah Palin knows more about energy than anyone else in the United States?" Should a presidential candidate be able to say crap like this? There should be some sort of law.

Is there any evidence at all that she knows anything about energy or energy policy? She lives in Alaska and there is oil in Alaska. So maybe, just maybe, she has some thoughts and opinions on energy. But the most knowledgeable person in the country?

Well, judge for yourself. Here is what she said in an interview this week about oil, energy, and drilling. If you can figure out this gibberish, let me know.

Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and where it’s not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first,” Palin said. “So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first.

What she said!

I hate to admit it but Palin makes W sound almost intelligent.
