Oliver Willis shrieks the news from the highest bell-tower: "Sarah Palin made a boo-boo!! Sarah Palin made a boo-boo!!"

How much does the Marxist left fear Sarah Palin?

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.

Hat tip: Memeorandum. Linked by: Michelle Malkin. Thanks!

The vast majority of liberals couldn't find the Korean peninsula on a map, let alone explain the difference between north and south Korea or the history behind how it became divided.

North Korea is O's ally. It was a clearly misunderstood bit of snark. I got it. It is easy to mistake O's for ours.

Sarah Palin just published a book of essays on the American experience. Barack Obama just published a coloring book. Who da dummy, now?

the Left reminds me nothing so much as those wretched years ushering my kids safely through their teens.

the willful blindness; stunning know-it-all arrogance; the utter contempt - fueled by sheer hard-headedness and determined ignorance; the unmitigated gall...

i keep waiting for the Left to finally grow up.
