The frightening and absurd coming candidacy of Sarah Palin, is the very reason that the founding fathers created the buffer of the electoral college between the office of the presidency and the misleadable and highly dupable public. Though they couldn't have foreseen the power of modern mass communications, they understood fully the real possibilty of the fickleness of an electorate driven by baser emotions, and an utter lack of reasoning and understanding.
Six months ago I predicted to family and friends that Obama would be a one-termer and that Sarah Palin would be the next president--mainly because a total lack of political sophistication and dullness are not weaknesses in our system but assets.
