(2nd) Palinism of the Day: Supreme Court Decisions? Um, Er, Um. Pause. Um…

After Sarah Palin said she opposes Roe v. Wade but supports the idea of the right to privacy in the constitution (which is the basis for the Roe v. Wade decision), Katie Couric asked Palin a simple question:

Katie Couric: What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?

Sarah Palin: Mmmmm…

[Pause]

Well, let’s see. There’s…

[Pause, sigh]

Of course in the great history of America there have been rulings, that, um, there’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but …

[Pause]

Couric: Can you think of any?

Palin: Well, I could think of, of, any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level, maybe I would take issue with? But, you know, um, as, as a mayor, and then as a governor and even as a vice president, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as, as it reads today.

If an elderly President dies or is incapacitated, the Vice President becomes the one person who is most in a position to “change those things.”

    She couldn’t even remember the Supreme Court decision (lowering the amount of damage Exxon has to pay for its Valdez accident WAY back when) that was decided in June of this year and which she commented “disappointed” her at the time!
