Dahlia Lithwick, who normally makes a great deal of sense, is advocating that Sarah Palin be a Supreme Court justice.
Sarah has a 6 year degree – a BA in broadcast journalism. Someone who has not even studied law is going to be a good Supreme Court judge? Does this mean that someone with an AA would do well in a lesser position, serving on a State Supreme Court for instance? (Why are we so enamored of inexperience and a lack of education in the arena of politics? How much bumbling incompetence do we need before it begins to lose its charm and appeal to the average American voter? Apparently more than 8 years, he says,to himself.) I guess as long as a person is confident, it really doesn't matter how unprepared they are.
Some days I wonder if I’m the only person in the U.S. who doesn’t know where to find hallucinogenics on short notice.
