Alaska’s GOP State Senate President on Palin: “She’s not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president?”

Did the McCain campaign do any research on Sarah Palin? Talk to anyone in the state? Even do a google search?

Apparently not. Check out this hometown smack down:

State Senate President Lyda Green said she thought it was a joke when someone called her at 6 a.m. to give her the news.

“She’s not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president?” said Green, a Republican from Palin’s hometown of Wasilla. “Look at what she’s done to this state. What would she do to the nation?”

All politics is local. Palin doesn’t like State Senate President Lyda Green. Palin laughed out loud when a radio talk show host called Green a “bitch” — and a “cancer” (Green is a cancer survivor):

Now, if Palin had been vetted by the McCain campaign, some of this stuff might have come up. But, McCain is erratic and impulsive. It was more important for McCain to “win” the news cycle than pick a v.p. who was qualified.
