It’s hard to keep up with the insane remarks coming out of the mouths of both McCain and Palin at this point, so I figured that I would share some that popped up today. The latest – Palin on her belief that homosexuality is a choice.

As for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships. I have…one of my best friends for the last 30 years happens to be gay and I love her dearly. She’s not my gay friend, she is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn’t a choice that I have made. But I’m not going to judge people.”

Huh? Is she saying she chose to be heterosexual? You have to wonder what her dear friend thought of her opposition to partner benefits (that she ended up signing because of a court order). Oh, btw, Dan Savage offered to be Bible Spice’s gay friend.

Couric asks Palin to name some newspapers and magazines she reads. The Thrilla from Wasilla can’t think of any.

COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media—
COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.
PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.
COURIC: Can you name any of them?
PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.

This clip is just batsh*t insane. Palin is asked a question at a town hall about energy and oil, purportedly her strong suit. Try to make sense of this:

Oil and coal…it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag the molecules where it’s going and where it’s not. In the sense of the Congress today they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first. So that I believe that what Congress is going to do also is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans who get stuck holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here…it’s got to flow into the domestic markets first. “

More below the fold. They keep on coming…

Bible Spice on Joe Biden to Katie Couric: “I’ve never met him before, but I’ve been hearing about his Senate speeches since I was in, like, second grade.” “When you have a 72-year-old running mate,” Couric asked, “is that kind of a risky thing to say, insinuating that Joe Biden’s been around a while?” Biden, Palin told Couric, has the “years of experience” in the Senate, while she is the “new energy; the new face; the new ideas.” And in the land of lame GOP messaging, the RNC released this anti-bailout ad, even as John McCain has been bleating all over the MSM about how the package should be referred as a “rescue.”

TNR: “You know things are getting dicey when the RNC goes on the air with an ad attacking the very bailout plan that, 24 hours ago, was the centerpiece of John McCain’s claim of economic leadership.”

A couple of weeks after he thought Spain was in Latin America, now Grampy’s map places Venezuela over in the Middle East. Watch it. We all know the bar for success for Palin is way low; Mitt Romney talks about Sarah Palin’s immense political prowess and debating skilz.
