Palin debate answers scripted on cue cards!

If you watched the debate last night, and found yourself wondering why Sarah kept offering non-specific answers at times only tangentially connected to the question at hand then you're like many Americans. And, it turns out, there is a reason she seemed less than fully engaged in the topics last night. Her performance, largely, was scripted so it didn't matter what the question was because many of her answered were provided on note cards.

In this video you can clearly, and repeatedly, observe Palin reading her answers from prepared note cards, often failing to competently deliver the lines that have been prepared.

The first test of a Vice-President candidate is whether or not they're strong enough to lead on his/her own. If Palin can't stand on her own in a debate, how will she lead in a time crisis?

Update, 12:50pm. Just came across humorous image, consider it your Friday Funny.
