Can We Please Just Move On?

The comment the other day by Faux News' Steve Doocy that Sarah Palin has plenty of national security experience due to her being Governor of a state in close proximity to Russia was bad enough when he said it. So why exactly is Cindy McCain continuing to put forward that same argument and more importantly, does she think that we are that stupid?
Asked about Palin's national security experience, Cindy McCain could not come up with anything beyond the fact that, after all, her state is right next to Russia -- so she surely knows a lot about that country. She added that Palin has "more experience than...." but  Stephanopoulos cut her off before she could say, for example, "Barack Obama" or maybe "others give her credit for."

And while we are discussing ridiculous talking points, could we please stop mentioning Palin's time in the PTA when trying to cite reasons for her having the necessary experience to be Commander in Chief?
Earlier, she actually said that Palin was "heavily experienced" in general, citing her going from the PTA to mayor to governor

Believe it or not, while I was born during the day, it wasn't yesterday.

UPDATE: Further highlighting the ridiculousness of Doocy and McCain's comments, Gov Palin didn't even have a passport until 2007 when she got one to travel to see Alaska National Guard troops in Kuwait. So we have a national security guru with a 1 year old passport?
