He could have told her that the Bush Doctrine was regarding alphabetizing the country's enemies list and she would have known no difference.

So, seems to me, both Krauthammer and Jayhawk failed to miss the big point. Krauthammer tries to obfuscate the problem with a cloud of definition of what "is" is and leaves himself open to the fact that she had no clue to ANY OF THE FOUR definitions he so conveniently laid out.

The gaffe was with Krauthammer.
You, trying to criticize Charles Krauthammer is like an ant crawling up an elephant's leg w/ rape on his mind...

If the dude starts trying to crawl up my leg, I will remember the warning.

Gibson was out to embarrass Palin and expose her presumed ignorance from the word go. By contrast, when Obama referred to his "Muslim faith" on Sunday and did not correct himself, Stephanopoulos rushed in at once to help him and emphasize that the senator had really meant to say his Christian faith.

By contrast, Gibson tried to embarrass Palin by referring to her Christian faith in asking people to pray for U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Palin countered by pointing out she was following the precedent set by Abraham Lincoln....

ABC's Gibson grilled Palin hard, but it may backfire - UPI.com
was't he hand picked by her/his people? hmmm now you cry foul?

yeah, he sure is splitting hairs.

she had no clue and totally bs'd her way through. i think this is the same issue that i have with her "boss". both seem clueless. how is alaska even close to 'in touch' with mainstream america? it just shows exactly what's in the den. gw may have a run for his idiocy title.
