Miss Informed 2008
From part two of Katie Couric's interview with Sarah Palin: Specifically watch 1:51-2:55 of this -- Palin's incomprehensible answer to a question about the bailout, complete with several glances at her notes -- then once again watch the video below.
(Update: And then there's this: Palin once again trying to justify at length her belief that Alaska's proximity to Russia makes her well versed in foreign policy. I swear this will make your fucking brain implode it's so unbelievably stupid. As my friend Jacki Schechner implies, this idiot makes the girls on The Hills look like Rhodes Scholars.

(Update II: Love this quote: "Three weeks after the 2008 Republican convention, on the cusp (maybe) of the first presidential debate, it is time to confront an awkward but profound question: whether in picking Sarah Palin as his running mate, John McCain has committed -- by his own professed standards of duty and honor -- a singularly unpatriotic act. 'I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war,' he has said throughout this campaign. Yet, in choosing Palin, he has demonstrated -- whatever his words -- it may be permissible to imperil the country, conceivably even to 'lose' it, in order to win the presidency. That would seem the deeper meaning of his choice of Palin. Indeed, no presidential nominee of either party in the last century has seemed so willing to endanger the country's security as McCain in his reckless choice of a running mate." -- Carl Bernstein)
