Sarah Palin's 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant Video, Swimsuit Competition

On Friday I posted in this space a link to a YouTube file of Sarah Palin's Miss Alaska swimsuit competition. YouTube quickly removed the link, but investigative blogger nonpareil Andy Baio saved the footage and posted it on his own server. Take a look: this woman could be next in line for the presidency come November. (Andy is also the one who unearthed the YouTube post.)

I have no problem with her pageant/sportscaster past. I have no problem with the fact that Bill Clinton smoked pot. I do, however, care very much about who the international representatives of our country are TODAY. And TODAY--view points aside--she does not have the knowledge nor even the poise under pressure to be Vice President.
