Wind up the talking Palin doll, pull the “global warming” cord, and the doll will say:

“I'm not one to attribute every man -- activity of man to the changes in the climate. There is something to be said also for man's activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet.”

This statement is nonsense!  The doll has tried to memorize a statement and obviously got it backward!

Actually, we all agree, don’t we, that we do not attribute every activity of man to changes in the climate.  I eat because I am hungry, I go to the bathroom because – well, you know why.  I do my best to support and vote for intelligent political candidates partly because of “changes in the climate” and because I believe that fact-based intelligent decisions are the only hope we have to save us from calamity.

Isn’t it clear that there was an intent to have the doll memorize a statement like:  “I’m not one to attribute all changes in climate to man’s activities.”

But it keeps coming out backwards!  The Palin doll obviously does not comprehend the words she has been fed, and her handlers have not been able to fix the problem.  I have heard the doll spout this weird nonsense three times now – twice during the Couric interviews and once during the Vice Presidential debate.  The quote above is taken from a transcript of the debate.

I am forced to conclude that the Republicans are desperately feeding stock talking points to a candidate who can’t even understand them or memorize them correctly!  Is this the caliber of person we want one 72 year old heartbeat away from the presidency?
