Sarah Palin is clearly out of her depth, and that’s scary.
And the fact that McCain exercised such poor judgment is scary.
But if the Republican ticket wins anyway, that will really say something scary about America—that the majority of Americans are okay with a person out of her intellectual and experiential depth a health crisis away from the American presidency.
It is grossly wreckless, and a sign of real cultural decadence, that the polls leading up to this election are even close.
I fear for the future of my country.
