Are people for real about Sarah Palin?

So Palin resigns from being governor, and there are all of these stories asking about her viability for future political office, particularly presidency. The conservative pundits are even talking about her in the context of leadership for the Republican party. For real? Am I missing something? She single-handedly propped up the McCain campaign, and subsequently brought it down. McCain had a shot in virtually every poll prior to her appointment as his running mate.

I'm not hating on her for being a Republican, I'm hating on her because she doesn't have a fucking clue about anything. Despite my general distaste for Republicans over the last decade (which does not, my one-dimensional thinking friends, imply that I love Democrats), I'd hate to see the party completely melt down, as there has to be some healthy debate in government to keep it from going off either deep end. But shit, this woman is not a leader, not a thinker, and seems completely unaware of the world around her. She's not qualified to be a governor, let alone hold national office.

I just find it hard to believe that there isn't someone in the party who can show some leadership.

EDIT: OK, so even someone on Fox Snooze gets what I'm saying...
