FNC’s Napolitano: Palin Lacks the Mental Capacity to be President

On Fox News Radio’s Brian and The Judge show, Judge Andrew Napolitano unloaded with both barrels on Sarah Palin. Napolitano said, “I just don’t think she possess the mental capacity to be the President of the United States. She’s a goofball.”

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

After playing a clip from Palin on Oprah complaining about Katie Couric asking her what she read, Napolitano said, “I rolled my eyes and I was annoyed with the question, so I sounded like a goofball, I read most of them. I read all of them. I read any of them. It reinforced the notion that John McCain chose her for reasons having nothing to do with her competence to replace him should he become president, and unfortunately not be able to serve his full term.”

Later Napolitano told his listeners how he really felt about Palin, “I agree with her on many of the issues, but I just don’t think she possesses the mental capacity to be the president of the United States. She’s a goofball.”

When even those hard core conservatives like Napolitano think Palin lacks the mental capacity to be president that is not a good omen. I think that the Judge’s comments about her highlight just how ineffective she has been in changing the perception that she is a flaky intellectual lightweight who isn’t up to the job of being president.

Her book is generating a ton of publicity for her, but her position on the political landscape remains the same. Sarah Palin is still a deeply polarizing figure who a majority of Americans do not feel is qualified to be president. I don’t know if I would call her a goofball, but the notion that she lacks the intellect to be president will be virtually impossible for her to overcome.

  1. I get it!! only the most intellectual elite are qualified to be leader of America like GW or BIG “O” or JImmy or BIlly Jeff – please – we need a real person not some politicised image of affluent, privileged, specially selected icon deemed suitable by the powers that be to continue the “WE/THEY” mentality that is crushing the free spirit in America – Judge Napo needs to go back to the courtroom and recognize that America is made up of real everyday folks that want to be represented by the same. To Hades with who is smart enough to lead America – it takes courage and insight, not I.Q. to be pres. ot the U.S. – a little ‘womans intuition would go along way and the courage of conviction to preserve our country is all she needs.

  2. ANOTHER ELITIST MENTALITY WHICH ABOUNDS IN WASHINGTON AND THE MEDIA. IT MUST BE NICE TO ALWAYS BE THE ONLY SMART ONE IN THE ROOM. LEGENDS IN THEIR OWN MINDS.
