One in a series that takes a look at some of the zany and madcap things said by Sarah Palin.
Here's Palin on the state of the economy and and why the unemployment numbers aren't turning around:
There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become a lot more efficient with fewer workers. You see it when you go to the bank and you use an ATM - you don't go to a bank teller or you go to the airport and you're using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.
What's that, you say? That wasn't Sarah Palin but rather the President on the Today show?
Knock us over with a feather. But then again, maybe not. The man has done absolutely nothing to dissuade us from thinking that perhaps he really does believe techological innovation is a cause for unemployment.
If it wasn't for that damn automobile, for instance, perhaps half of all of us could be gainfully employed in the buggy whip sector for the carriages and the other half as farmers for the hay for the horsies.
The more he talks about the economy, the more it's painfully obvious he doesn't have a clue about the economy.
