Prep School

After her logical train wreck with Katie Couric last week, rumor has it that Sarah Palin will be spending the next two days cramming in Arizona for Thursday’s debate whereby her handlers will be trying a new strategy of giving her broader liberty to be herself.

Not a bad idea.

But there’s a problem: if Palin comes across as too slick and cocky in debate (as she did in St. Paul; remember, she won’t be preaching exclusively to the choir here), I suspect many voters will see her as the equivalent of Saran Wrap: thin, transparent, and disposable.

In order to do her boss any good, Palin must have a detailed knowledge of domestic and international issues.

And so far, she has demonstrated no signs of doing so – as shown in an unaired portion of the Couric interview wherein Palin reportedly blanked when asked to cite a Supreme Court case other than Roe v. Wade.
