Please help keep this person away from power

A new bipartisan cause, I hope.

The Times:

Today the authors reveal that the failures affected Mrs Palin’s nerves. “Palin flew to Philadelphia to spend the next week concentrating on debate prep. The next two days were a total train wreck. Never before had Palin’s team seen her so profoundly out of sorts for such a sustained period. She wasn’t eating (a few small bites of steak a day, no more). She wasn’t drinking (maybe half a can of Dr Pepper; no water, ever). She wasn’t sleeping (not much more than a couple of hours a night, max).

“The index cards were piling up by the hundreds, but Palin wasn’t absorbing the material written on them. When her aides tried to quiz her, she would routinely shut down – chin on her chest, arms folded, eyes cast to the floor, speechless and motionless, lost in what those around her described as a kind of catatonic stupor.”

Asked if the preparations weren’t worth it for the prospect of power, Mrs Palin is said to have replied darkly: “No. If I’d known everything I know now, I would not have done this.”

One of her advisers sent an urgent SOS to McCain headquarters, the authors continue. “They began discussing a new and threatening possibility: that Palin was mentally unstable.”
