So Stoopid It Burns: Palin says Obama's 'lack of experience' leaves him 'a bit over his head' on HCR.

It really doesn't get any more surreal than this. Greta Van Susteren laments the fact that the healthcare bill isn't more bipartisan - erm, the fact that the Republicans are the Party of No has had no bearing on this? - and Sarah Palin tells us it's not bipartisan because of Obama's "lack of experience".

Palin: It really reflects a lack of experience of President Obama's, which -- it was warned about during the campaign that Candidate Obama didn't have executive experience, he hasn't been an administrator or a manager of anything. So to jump into this huge -- hugely important responsible position as President of the United States without the experience to know how to work across party lines, and to know how to administer and to manage a team to get policy through that makes sense, that's supported by the people -- it's a bit, um, it's a bit over his head, if you will. And, uh, things aren't going well, and the public is really voicing their frustration.
When Sarah Palin was named John McCain's candidate for the Vice Presidency, the notion of her becoming president - should anything happen to McCain - was so horrendous that it almost instantly killed his candidacy. I said at the time that it deserved to, as he had made an utterly insane choice. And most Americans continue to think that she is completely unqualified for such a role.
There is a growing sense that the former Alaska governor is not qualified to serve as president, with more than seven in 10 Americans now saying she is unqualified, up from 60 percent in a November survey. Even among Republicans, a majority now say Palin lacks the qualifications necessary for the White House.
So, to now have Sarah Palin - of all bloody people - now tell us that Obama lacks the experience needed to be president, is to enter Alice in Wonderland territory.

Only on Fox could she make that statement without being laughed out of the studio.
