Sarah Palin: North Korea-Loving, Communist-American!

Yes, I know it is a misleading title, and I know that the ex-Governor of Alaska has no clue which Korea is democratic or Communist.  But after all, according to her apologists, I am the next Stalin for believing that sick and dying people deserve health care as a right of citizenship (on par with voting and freedom of speech).  I thought today we should give our erstwhile right-wing friends a taste of their own medicine, and credit must be given to the refudiator: she makes it remarkably easy.  Without further ado, the future Presidential nominee for the stupid party.


Palin's Korea Mixup: "We Gotta Stand With Our North Korean Allies"

Palin was asked during an interview with how she would handle the current situation between North and South Korea.

NEW YORK -- Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accidentally mixed up North and South Korea during a radio interview Wednesday.

Palin was asked during an interview with Glenn Beck how she would handle the current situation between North and South Korea.

"Obviously we gotta stand with our North Korean allies," she said. "We are bound to treaties."

A few moments earlier Palin had correctly identified North Korea as an adversary, not an ally.

"We aren't having a lot of faith that the White House is gonna come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is gonna do."

Debate about the nation's policy in Korea has been fueled by North Korea's recent barrage on the island of Yeonpyeong that killed two South Korean civilians, two marines and wounded 18 others in what U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called one of the "gravest incidents" since the Korean War.

I believe this is what Clarence Darrow meant when he wrote, "When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. I’m beginning to believe it.

UPDATE:  It turns out the ex-Mayor of the meth capital of Alaska believes that the media, and no doubt evil embryo killers like myself, are being too harsh on her for making just this little one-time gaffe about North Korea being an 'ally.'  I mean, it is not like she lacks knowledge about which countries are in North America, or cannot name a single Supreme Court case outside of Roe v. Wade, or thinks that one of the Constitutional duties of the Vice President of the US is to set the legislative agenda of the US Senate.  Obviously, those are all just a few of many individualized mistakes that have nothing to do with anything, like having some semblance of intelligence about the office you are running for, geography, and government in general.  All a coincidence.  

Maybe that is why Sarah prefers to "get the word out" through Twitter and Facebook--least she have to face other live human beings who might correct her for all of the one-time little gaffes she keeps making, over and over.  How horrible and anti-American of us to notice such things.  If only we were not filled with such boundless hatred for all of those wholesome values that makes us the greatest country that has or will ever exist--so that being a hate-filled wretch who uses gender to promote a retrograde, anti-female ideology would become a virtue to us all.
