My god. I can’t wait to see this video. As Amanda said, Palin couldn’t even recall Brown v. Board of Ed. Seriously, is there anything going on upstairs in her noggin — she’s running for VP, and if she became president, she’d be in position to nominate someone to the Supreme Court! At this point, it’s frightening.

Of concern to McCain’s campaign, however, is a remaining and still-undisclosed clip from Palin’s interview with Couric last week that has the political world buzzing.

The Palin aide, after first noting how “infuriating” it was for CBS to purportedly leak word about the gaffe, revealed that it came in response to a question about Supreme Court decisions.

After noting Roe vs. Wade, Palin was apparently unable to discuss any major court cases.

There was no verbal fumbling with this particular question as there was with some others, the aide said, but rather silence.

Also, there’s apparently a frustrated, aggressive reaction from the Bible Bubblehead Spice when she’s asked about her former church’s pray-away-the-gay teachings. This was during the co-interview with Grandpappy Chaperone McCain.

Sitting with McCain for their first joint interview a week after the widely panned sit-down with Couric, Palin interjected when the CBS anchor brought up a report about the Wasilla Assembly of God, the governor’s childhood church and one she still attends at times, seeking to pray gays away from homosexuality.

“Sarah Barracuda showed up today,” the aide said, reprising the feisty former point guard’s high school basketball nickname and one that has been largely forgotten since her post-convention cosseting.

“We’re encouraging CBS to run entire thing,” the aide said of today’s session. “Run it end to end online.”

Please, do. Pretty please.
