Nope. No snobbery here.

While watching the Sarah Palin interview with Charlie Gibson Thursday night, and the coverage of the Palin phenomenon in general, I’ve gotten the scary feeling, for the first time in my life, that dimwittedness is not just on the march in the U.S., but that it might actually prevail.

In the same piece, he claims that Palin doesn’t even understand the Bush Doctrine because she asked Charlie Gibson to explain which part of the Bush Doctrine he was talking about. A-ha! Well, not quite.

Herbert also expresses shock that Palin was proud of her son for going to Iraq to fight “the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.” Herbert asks, “Was she deliberately falsifying history, or does she still not know that Iraq and Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the Sept. 11 attacks?” Turns out, she accurately described the facts.

And he’s questioning Palin’s readiness?
