Palin

Harsh but probably accurate

This pretty much sums up Governor Palin: “She has an incredibly thin résumé, a serious lack of gravitas, no coherent philosophy and the people around her are amateurs,” another top Republican pol argued. “She’s finished.” via Alaska’s governor Sarah Palin to resign, dooming her presidential pipe dream.
