Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst has spoken out against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her potential bid for presidency.

Oberst made the comments in a discussion about his strong political views, having taken part in the 'Vote To Change' tour alongside Bruce Springsteen and REM before the last election.

When asked whether he thought Palin could win an election if she stood in 2012, Oberst admitted that it would be "unbelievably terrible" for the country if that happened.

"That's a very slim possibility," Oberst told Metro. "I don't think she could ever win nationwide."

"She's so incompetent in every way," the singer added.

Bright Eyes released their seventh studio album The People's Key last week.
