James Fallows nails it about why Sarah Palin’s response to Charlie Gibson’s Bush Doctrine question is so jaw-dropping:

What Sarah Palin revealed is that she has not been interested enough in world affairs to become minimally conversant with the issues.

But not to recognize the name, as obviously was the case for Palin, indicates not a failure of last-minute cramming but a lack of attention to any foreign-policy discussion whatsoever in the last seven years.
