After showing a particularly weak answer from Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric regarding the bailout, CNN’s Jack Cafferty said, “If John McCain wins this woman will be one 72-year-old’s heartbeat away from being President of the United States. And if that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, it should.” Wolf Blitzer tries to play devil’s advocate and suggests that Palin’s incoherence might be the result of too much cramming. “Don’t make excuses for her,” counters a clearly upset Cafferty, who sums up Palin’s performance in one word–pathetic.”
