Palin on Economics: Worse Than C+ Augustus

Forget the nuclear football — how would Palin be as a steward of the economy

Palin herself may not be the most authoritative spokesperson on such issues. In the past, when she was running for Alaska governor, she freely admitted to a reporter that she got a "D" in macroeconomics in college.

One wonders how she will hold up under intense grilling from the press over the current financial meltdown:

What precise reforms would Palin like to make, to better protect US investors? Unfortunately there’s no way of knowing for sure. The candidate is not taking questions from the press.

I know he’s kind of desperate, impulsive and willing to do anything to get elected, but McCain quite literally saddled the campaign with someone who is worse than Bush.

Superb timing.
