Lisa Murkowski Points Out The Obvious: Sarah Palin Lacks The Intellectual Curiosity To Be President

Lisa Murkowski is not very fond of Sarah Palin. While her comments might be partially motivated by Palin’s support for a Tea Party candidate who beat her for the Republican nomination, that doesn’t change the fact that they are correct:

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowki told CBS News’ Katie Couric today that she would not support Sarah Palin for president because Palin lacks the “leadership qualities” and “intellectual curiosity” to craft great policy.

“You know, she was my governor for two years, for just about two years there, and I don’t think that she enjoyed governing,” Murkowski said. “I don’t think she liked to get down into the policy.” The Alaska senator added that she prefers a candidate who “goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning thinking about how we’re going to deal with” important issues.
