The buffoonish nature of Sarah Palin’s vice presidential candidacy has mostly been a disaster for the McCain-Palin campaign, but it is has delivered at least one benefit: her foibles have helped obscure the true nature of her right-wing extremism.
But now, Sarah Palin’s self-destructive behavior is threatening to expose even that. In an interview broadcast yesterday on NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams asked Palin whether she felt abortion clinic bombers were terrorists. Amazingly, she said that she didn’t know :
“I don’t know if you’re going to use the word ‘terrorist’ there,”
What makes it so incredible is that Sarah Palin was responding to one of the easiest questions that has been posed during this entire campaign. Her answer should have been simple: of course they are terrorists.
Instead, Palin balked, saying that while bombings were unacceptable, she didn’t know if they were acts of terrorism.
