Sarah Palin, Foreign Policy, and the Irony of Country First

John McCain is crying again.

He thinks the media is tricking his poor little Pitt Bull Palin into looking like she is so desperately- horribly- out of her league.

Uh…

Right.

None of this could have anything to do with the fact that she is out of her league…

Could it?

Shit- now it’s gotten so bad that I’m not only questioning McCain’s judgment in picking this feisty animal as his hopeful #2 in command- but honestly, I question the soundness of his mind.

Especially considering his most recent claims… that he has asked Governor Palin for advice on foreign policy “many times”.

Wow.

I don’t know guys… that actually scares the living hell out of me…

… And begs the question…

Why in the world would he be asking her for foreign policy advice?

More importantly, what the hell is he asking Little Miss I-have-foreign-policy-experience-because-my-middle-of-nowhere-state-is-close-to-Russia that he doesn’t already know the answer to?

What could she possibly tell Senator McCain about foreign policy?

The woman is beyond ignorant… she is the most clueless political-wanna-be to ever roam the planet…

A planet that she believes humans inhabited- as recently as 6,000 years ago- with dinosaurs, by the way… as in, both dinosaurs and people lived in harmony here on earth… together…

Simultaneously.

… But I digress.

Back to foreign policy.

McCain is asking for advice from Sarah Palin, who went on national TV to explain that since Georgia is our NATO ally, we should strongly consider going to war with Russia.

She didn’t know enough to realize- Georgia is not part of NATO.

Moving on… this oh-so-smart lady recently told the good folks in Philadelphia that we should absolutely reserve the right to launch cross-border attacks from Afghanistan into Pakistan, in case it becomes necessary to “stop terrorists from coming any further in”

Funny.

John McCain doesn’t think we should entertain that option… in fact, he retracted her statements when questioned about them (really? You can retract other people’s statements?)…

But…

Her statements were strangely reminiscent of Obama’s own stance on the Afghanistan-Pakistan-border-fiasco.

Sigh.

She agreed with McCain’s opponent… but not because she honestly agrees with his stance… but because… she’s too dumb to understand what she’d actually said.

Oh, but she isn’t finished yet…

During her now-infamous interview Katie Couric, Palin, speaking out of complete and total ignorance, actually endorses Hamas (you know- the terrorist group? Yes, that Hamas).

Couric had asked Governor Palin what happens when “the goal of democracy doesn’t produce the desired outcome? In Gaza, the U.S. pushed hard for elections, and Hamas won”… to which our esteemed John McCain running-mate replied:

Yeah, well especially in that region, though, we have to protect those who do seek democracy and support those who seek protections for the people who live there. What we’re seeing in the last couple of days here in New York is a President of Iran, Ahmadinejad, who would come on our soil and express such disdain for one of our closest allies and friends, Israel … and we’re hearing the evil that he speaks and if hearing him doesn’t allow Americans to commit more solidly to protecting the friends and allies that we need, especially there in the Mideast, then nothing will.

Alright listen up, because it’s worth repeating.

Dumb-dumb Sarah Palin just endorsed Hamas.

Does she endorse them because she supports them?

Absolutely not.

She endorsed them because she doesn’t know what the fuck she’s talking about.

Someone very close to me recently told me something…

He said some people are so blinded- by racism, by ignorance, by their party, by classism- that they will support “one of their own” at all costs.

Even when doing so poses a real threat to our very country.

If I wasn’t witnessing the shenanigans of McCain, his brand new best friend and all their supporters first hand, I would have begged to differ.

I would have said Americans, regardless of party lines, put America first.

The GOP’s own slogan during the Convention was “Country First”… ironic, considering how absolutely dangerous this woman is to our very safety, stability… our rights… our everything…

Well Repbublicans, you could have fooled me.

Seriously…

Get the hell out of here with that Country First bullshit.
