Cafferty: Palin should "scare the hell out of you"

The fact that Palin’s studying to be Vice President through all-night cram sessions, as if the campaign were some undergrad final should, in Cafferty's words, "scare the hell out of [every American]".

Vice President of the United States is a position that requires someone who is already comfortable and familiar with the issues, not someone who’s stuffing facts and figures in her head at the last minute and hoping they all come out in the right order.

After showing an incoherent answer from Sarah Palin's interview with Katie Couric regarding the bailout, CNN's Jack Cafferty said,

"If John McCain wins this woman will be one 72-year-old's heartbeat away from being President of the United States. And if that doesn't scare the hell out of you, it should."

Wolf Blitzer then tries to play devil's advocate and suggests that Palin's incoherence might be the result of too much cramming. "Don't make excuses for her," counters a clearly upset Cafferty, who sums up Palin's performance in one word--pathetic."
