Well, as the Korean peninsula trembles, as the United States nears bankruptcy and as the world grapples with the collapse of the dollar, the denizens of the left are eager to deflect attention from their destructive policies by embracing a brief misstatement by Sarah Palin. The result? Breathless headlines and mock terror.
Genius. Absolute genius. When Glenn Beck is correcting you on foreign policy, well... genius.
The transcript of what really transpired?
CO-HOST: How would you handle a situation like the one that just developed in North Korea? [...]
PALIN: But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies. We’re bound to by treaty –
CO-HOST: South Korean.
PALIN: Eh, Yeah. And we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.
During the interview, Palin explicitly stated that North Korea represented a national security threat.
She didn't say that the United States had 57 states.
Or that "we gotta stand with our corpse-men" (twice).
She didn't say that "the Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries."
Or agree with an interviewer during the 2008 campaign that "you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith."
Or mention that 10,000 people died during a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people.
No, she didn't say any of those things.
Barack Obama did. But that's not news. Because he's historic. Or something.
