Smile (and then weep) over this joke

More of the same. This invented exchange neatly puts the Palin absurdity on display.

"Governor Palin, are you ready at this moment to perform surgery on this child's brain?"

"Of course, Charlie. I have several boys of my own, and I'm an avid hunter."

"But governor, this is neurosurgery, and you have no training as a surgeon of any kind."

"That's just the point, Charlie. The American people want change in how we make medical decisions in this country. And when faced with a challenge, you cannot blink."

Sam Harris on Sarah Palin and Elitism.

I can also recommend Harris's sometimes dry but always highly intelligent book on religion The End of Faith.
