Rational? I am not familiar with her, but if she is an intelligent design supporter, my assumption is 'perceived rational'.
That was a swipe at Joe Biden on my part.
I disagree with her on some things (gay marriage, religion), but when I hear the three stooges (McCain, Obama, and Biden) speak, all I hear is the same old political spin and grandstanding... mostly nonsense. If you examine her record and listen to her speeches, Palin comes across as more of a true statesman.
