@Alex, Billions care
"Who cares that Palin is an idiot"
Billions care and should care about who is the vice president of the US, and possible the president.
Palin is hardly an idiot, but having absolutely no education, no knowledge of history, or the world to day (or any day), could provoke idiotic decisions if she had any "power".
The real idiots are those within the GOB and that "Mc who ever" who accepted her as a candidate.
I do believe Obama won on his own, but I do hope the voters in the US did understand the complete lack of qualification Palin had, and has, for the position she was aiming at.
Those who, sort of, defend this student, I think, put this into a larger picture where there is a huge crime against logic, a huge crime against decency compared with a petty thing.
And the possible 20 years of prison is Nazi, it is the old Soviet Union, North Korea you name it.
And YEAS, there are billions of people who should care.
