Presidential Scrabble Strategy

Tyler Cowen  notes Sarah Palin's Scrabble strategy:
"Everybody in the family played Scrabble and took great pride in hoarding Ks and Qs and slapping them down in long, fancy words on triple-letter scores." -- Going Rogue, p. 12.
"this is bad Scrabble strategy....If this is her game of Scrabble, you can only imagine what her foreign policy would be like."
Tyler's tongue might be in his cheek; surely Palin's adult life provides far more reason to fear her foreign policy than her childhood Scrabble strategy.
The whole idea of Scrabble seems a bit quaint, despite the game's continued popularity.
Coming Soon: candidates who spent childhood playing "Grand Theft Auto".
