John McCain’s running mate, first considered a stupid choice, then a brilliant move, is now proving herself to be a rather unintelligent choice. Unless he’s going for the stupid vote. I have to say I am not endorsing Obama at all, I think his views foreign policy are wrong and potentially harmful to anyone who doesn’t want Bin Laden or Ahmadinejad controlling things in the world.
However Sarah Palin, over and over again, has proven herself to be woefully inadequate to serve in any position that has anything to do with international affairs. Her extensive experience in fictitious trade missions to Russia, her newly obtained passport are just two examples as to why the average business traveler is probably better suited for meeting a foreign dignitary then the Governor of Alaska.
Much has been written after Katie Couric interviewed Palin recently, how the idea of Sarah Palin having any real power is a pretty scary idea. Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic, however, brings up a less known part of the interview in which, as he says, she basically endorses Hamas.
On the topic of exporting democracy worldwide, the Republican choice for second in command of the free world had some very odd comments. Couric asked her what “if the goal of democracy doesn’t produce the desired outcome? In Gaza, the U.S. pushed hard for elections and Hamas won.” Palin, showing a new level of stupidity, made Jon Stewart very happy by saying: “Yeah, well especially in that region, though, we have to protect those who do seek democracy.”
What sort of idiot is she? Has she not ever watched any news that had to do with anything outside of Alaska and Putin rearing his head into Alaska’s airspace…? She just unknowingly defended Hamas’ control of the Palestinian Authority. The key word here is unknowingly. If she had meant to show her support for Hamas on national television then fine. Wrong, but fine. But she didn’t – She is stupid. It’s painful to watch.
Someone get this fool out of here. Fast.
