A DUMB PRO-PALIN TALKING POINT is that she is the commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard. All governors are in charge of their states’ National Guard units, and their actual responsibilities in this regard are generally pretty light. It’s true she visited the troops in Kuwait, but I don’t think this experience is really a very strong argument in terms of military competence.
UPDATE: On the other hand, claims that Palin faked her pregnancy would have to count as dumber . . . .
