Default Palin Is An Intellectual

Just ask her. She'll tell you.
From the authority on the intelligencia People magazine.
Quote:
Does vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin consider herself intellectual? You betcha!

“And you have to be up on not only current events, but you have to understand the foundation of the issues that you’re working on,” Palin said in an interview with People magazine. “You can’t just go on what is presented you.”

Although Palin didn’t name a single newspaper or magazine when CBS News anchor Katie Couric asked where she got her information, the Alaska governor told People that she has always been a “voracious reader” and named reading — anything from biographies to historical works — as her favorite thing along with her children and sports.
I have a feeling George Will spit up his coffee when he read the article.

So she reads to keep on on current affairs - I don't see where she claims to be an "intellectual".

Another case of people evaluating potential public servants based upon their speaking skills, charisma, and ability to deftly navigate hostile (and clearly heavily edited) interviews.

The same logic that gave us Bill "hey Freddie & Fannie - we gotta make mortgages more accessible" Clinton, the bill for whom has just started to come due...

Direct quote from People Magazine Interview with her and Todd.

Do you think you're intellectual?
SP: Yessss. And you have to be up on not only current events, but you have to understand the foundation of the issues that you're working on as a governor. I had to do the same thing as a mayor. So it is not just current events but it's much more in-depth than that to understand how, in the case of me being governor, how did our state get to the position that we are in order for a decision to have to be made. You can't just go on what is presented you. You have to know the background, you have to know the players involved before you make a policy call. So, um, it's uh, it's a good job, it's a tough job and it's a very, very serious job. And no. You don't get to be a governor by being
TP: going with the wind.
SP: Yeah definitely. You don't just go with the flow and take a political pulse on policy. You have to go with what the foundational knowledge is that you have on issues in front of you and you have to put the people you are serving, put them first. You put them before partisanship you put them before special interests. That's how you make decisions as governor.
