Sarah Palin tells Billo that she has the common sense of most Americans. I think she may actually be correct this time!
That’s because most Americans are complete dumbfucks

From Bill O’ Reilly’s November 20 interview on The O’ Reilly Factor, Billo asks Sarah Palin if she is intelligent enough to handle being the President of the United States. Palin responds by saying that maybe Americans are not looking for candidates who have experience and education but rather common sense instead.
Here’s a portion of the transcript:
O’REILLY: Let me be very bold and fresh again. Do you believe that you are smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world?
PALIN: I believe that I am because I have common sense, and I have, I believe, the values that are reflective of so many other American values. And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the the kind of spineless… a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite Ivy League education and a fat resume that’s based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. I’m not saying that has to be me.
Here’s the clip [around the 7:45 mark]
Palin tells O’ Reilly that she’s qualified because she has the “values that are reflective of so many other Americans”, whatever the hell that means. If that means that most Americans are complete and utter dumbasses who do not even know what the Vice President’s only two jobs are [as Palin herself did not know in July 2008 and STILL didn’t know in August 2008 after the story had been headline news---and STILL didn’t know in October 2008 during the VP debate!], then she is exactly right. After all, are we forgetting so quickly what the common sense of most Americans got us the past 8 years?
