…but I told you so:
From Steve Benen at Washington Monthly this morning (Bold Emphasis added):
First, Palin was qualified for national office because she opposed the infamous “bridge to nowhere.” That turned out to be false. Second, Palin was qualified because she lives in a state near Russia. That turned out to be dumb. Third, Palin was qualified because she supported the president’s “surge” policy in Iraq. That turned out to be false.
Yesterday, the new top-of-the-list talking point is that Palin is the “commander in chief” of the Alaska National Guard. This was popular with the some conservatives on Friday, but by yesterday, “It was hard to keep track of how many Republicans on Sunday morning referred to Gov. Sarah Palin as ‘commander in chief’ of the Alaska National Guard.”
I can see these guys coming a mile away.
