stupid comment of the day at national review

Sarah Palin and the ‘Forbidden Boyfriend’ - Interview - National Review Online:
"Palin may not be the most qualified person for the Presidency, but to say that she is unqualified is close to saying that the average American is unqualified. And if the average American is inherently unqualified to be President (not just 'less than' qualified, which can be corrected), then we no longer live in a democracy."
Just as the average american cannot reasonably aspire to be a neurosurgeon or an Olympic athlete it is profoundly stupid to suppose that the average american can reasonably aspire to be president. I don't even know what to make of this idea that somehow being president is an easy job that anyone can learn to do if they just apply themselves.
