When you have to cram a test, you’re not ready

Remember when you were in college and you hadn’t really paid much attention in class, had done the bare minimum of studying and had to cram to get a C on the final? You may have passed the course.

from the NY Times:

Ms. Palin has traveled with a briefing team since Sept. 10. Two people close to the campaign, addressing her difficulties, said she had been stuffed with facts as if preparing for an oral exam and had become nervous and unnatural in the few interviews.

Advisers said she was a diligent worker and was frequently up until the small hours of the morning in her hotel room trying to cram as much information as possible before the debate.

If you have to cram for the test, you don’t actually have a grasp on the content. And Sarah Palin doesn’t have a clue about anything of national significance.

To quote CNN’s Cafferty: “She’s a friggin joke.”
