I think what scared me most about Sarah Palin is that she comes off so normal - and normal always scares me. But I think she really may be like Erin Brokovich - as others have already noted - and maybe she is not so normal after all.
So then I took another look at the Obama's and realized they are extremely "Stepford Wives" types - and they scare me more. Although Cindy McCain comes off pretty Stepford as well.
I don't know - American politics get's creepier every election cycle.
