But is She Ready for the ’24’ Scenario?
by

While I’ve raised questions about Sarah Palin’s readiness myself, I think Conor Friedersdorf gets a bit carried away:

To put a finer point on this, I ask the following of everyone who watched tonight’s debate — were John McCain assassinated at his inauguration by terrorists, even as two American cities saw buildings partially blown up by truck bombs, and Vladimir Putin used the opportunity to move troops into a former Soviet Repulic, would you trust that Governor Palin would have the knowledge, credibility, bearing and calming influence on the country to handle the situation? Or would having her in the Oval Office freak you out in a deep way? I’d be frightened, and I expect a lot of people now supporting Governor Palin would think, “Oh God, what have I done.”

This is getting pretty absurd. Would Conor somehow feel safe if Barack Obama were president under those circumstances? What if the Silver Surfer came to Earth and said Galactus was going to consume the planet? Who would make him feel safe then?
