Here are some thoughts from Republican VP pick Gov. Sarah Palin on Iraq. She makes George W. Bush sound coherent.
Further, her energy policy seems to consist mainly of further oil drilling. We cannot free ourselves from foreign oil by domestic drilling—there is not enough of it. And continuing to rely on oil will certainly do nothing to help global warming.
I also find it troubling that McCain met her only once or twice before picking her. Is that Putting America First? Don't get me wrong, I would love to see a qualified woman (like Hillary Clinton) elected to the US Presidency, but we can't just omit the "qualified" part.
