One should actually be all the more concerned about Jim Antle’s use of the word, “tutor.” The idea that the potential head of state will be receiving… tutoring? She will be the president of the Senate! Grammatically speaking, this interview reeks of disaster, the consequence, unfortunately, of nervousness. She sounds very similar to the Miss Teen USA from South Carolina. This doesn’t mean she’s stupid — it just means that she’s fantastically nervous. Wlady just pointed out that she prefers to just take the points from advisers and to work on them on her own. That’s a mistake. She needs to spend time with her journalism-school trained journalists and have them ribbing her. She needs to get used to this. There need to be cameras. Lights. Uncomfortable chairs. I agree with Philip’s concern about her inexperience on foreign policy, and further her lack of knowledge on national security. If McCain’s supposed to be the foreign policy the-world-is-a-dangerous-place candidate, Palin needs to convey a better sense of what’s going on, not simply the first principles.
