Sarah Palin on the Economy

Here's a transcript of her interview (via Atrios) on the economy with Katie Couric. It's hard to believe this is actually the vice-presidential nominee of a major political party. She can't even put together a half-coherent sentence about the economy, and that's after having been tutored by Doug Holtz-Eakin for weeks.

Stealing a bit from Yglesias, this is a pretty good approximation of Palin's answers:

Of course, as much as this is important information for citizens to know in making a momentous decision, you would have to be careful in deciding how -- or even if -- to release it. The Republican machine obviously would not be above shamelessly trying to make you look like you wished ill of McCain. It might help them in their goal of, as McCain's campaign manager admitted, getting voters to not vote on the issues, that is to not vote on what the candidates would actually do for their families and the country.
