Bob McDonnell: Sarah Palin “Qualified” To Be President


    There are actually two absurdly false comments by Bob McDonnell in this interview. First, McDonnell claimed that Republicans performed well on election day because they “had the better message on actually getting stuff done and fixing problems.”  I see. And what would that message be exactly? Also, how is it that the “party of no” – which just spent 8 years screwing up the country, followed by 2 years of obstructing everything Democrats tried to do – is now focused on actually “getting stuff done?”  Can we get PolitiFact on this one, please?!?

    Second, McDonnell claims that Sarah Palin is “qualified” to be President of the United States. That statement is so idiotic it requires no elaboration. I’ll just add that if Palin’s qualified to be President, then she’s also qualified to be a brain surgeon or astrophysicist. More likely, she’s not qualified to do any of those jobs, after having failed miserably as Mayor of tiny Wasilla and after having quit her job as governor of Alaska, where she read “all of” the newspapers and almost could see Russia from her house. Heh.
