McCain Allies Struggle to Defend Palin

Gov. Sarah Palin has a big political problem. John McCain has selected her as his vice presidential running mate, but she doesn't know anything about national or international affairs.

Here's how one blogger summed up the problem defending Palin's ignorance:

There is, it seems, a dearth of effective talking points on Sarah Palin's lack of foreign policy experience. On Monday, McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds went on CNN to defend the vice presidential pick, only to come up blank when asked to name one specific decision Palin has made as commander of Alaska's national guard.

On Tuesday, Sen. Jon Kyl, another McCain confidante, was given his turn. And the results were equally problematic for the presumptive Republican nominee. Asked by Fox News' Chris Wallace whether Palin was "ready to be president" Kyl's response was, basically, "in time."
