Sarah Palin Is a Moron

800px-Palin_Nowhere_99901Apparently Sarah Palin wrote an op-ed piece in  The Washington Post, and the response it has received is overwhelming. It’s been attacked by mainstream figures and like Keith Olbermann and John Kerry, and it’s been lambasted by policy wonks and environmentalists. Her article attacks Obama’s energy policy and the Waxman-Markey bill. I won’t bore you with the details. I just have one point to make: If Sarah Palin has decided to leave political life, she should stop flaunting her ignorance of complex issues and shut up. Since her argument seems to ignore global climate change altogether, it reads like a sad attempt to justify the Republican “drill, baby, drill!” stance. Even worse, if this is Palin’s attempt to dive into policy issues and position herself for the 2012 presidential election, then she’s going about it the wrong way. In fact, based on her argumentation skills, silence on her part would be more convincing. I can’t figure out her strategy at this point, and it looks like she can’t either.
