The economy: How does that work, again?

Do not ask Sarah Palin.
As reported by the good people at Huffington Post:

Speaking before voters in Colorado Springs, the Republican vice presidential nominee claimed that lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had “gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers.” The companies, as McClatchy reported, “aren’t taxpayer funded but operate as private companies. The takeover may result in a taxpayer bailout during reorganization.”

People tell me they are voting for Palin not because of the policies she supports but because they share the same beliefs. Well, what Sarah Palin believes is wrong; her nonsensical statements, made without prompt or assistance, prove it.

    Is there anyone willing to defend this joke of a candidate? Brendan? SILive posters?

    I am serious. McCain’s first meaningful decision to show us how excellent his judgment is involved picking her- a total rookie. And not just a political rookie. A rookie from a state closer to Russia than the rest of the 49 states, a rookie who went to something like 5 colleges in six years (all-star)…etc

    She doesn’t even know what Fannie Mae DOES- how can she have a nuanced policy stance on it?

    The only silver lining of the Palin pick is that, following the W’s footsteps, it gave me confidence that I can be president. If Bush can be president, and she can be a serious VP pick, then I can be president. So can all of you.
