Lieberman thinks everybody should listen to Sarah Palin

I get that Palin has power because she has a lot of fans on the far right. But she’s brain dead. She’s not presidential material. She’s not particularly smart or informed. And yes, I get that a lot of the Republican base is the same. But that’s hardly a justification for making her president, that she’s as ill-informed as the masses she represents. As Jon Stewart once said, I want to vote for a president who’s smarter than me. Here’s Lieberman:

“I do disagree with her on some of the specifics that she has said, but I think anybody who underestimates Sarah Palin as a political force in America does so at some peril, because she is speaking for a lot of people out there,” he said. “I don’t know what her future is, but I’m just saying everybody should listen.”

So does Sarah Palin deserve the attention she’s getting?
