For all of the left’s insistence that Sarah Palin has no credibility, as a person or a politician, they sure do pay alot of attention to her.
Sewers like The Huffington Post and the Daily Kos can’t seem to urinate without focusing on where she is, what she is doing, or what she says.
I believe “obsession” is the word used to describe that sort of behavior.
What are they focusing on this time?
A conversation with Glenn Beck discussing North Korea’s unprovoked bombing of South Korea.
The following non-issue has the tolerant, educated liberals in a comical tizzy.
A simple north-south slip of the tongue or not, Sarah Palin’s latest gaffe couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Tea Party icon, geo-politically speaking.
In a live radio interview Wednesday with equally popular conservative host Glenn Beck, Palin twice referred to North Korea as America’s ally and urged President Obama to firmly demonstrate the alliance.
The first reference was the less glaring mistake.
“We’re not having a lot of faith that the White House is going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is going to do,” Palin told Beck.
It’s unclear whether she referenced the correct Korea and simply misused the term “sanction” — which, as stated, means to approve or validate, or if she meant to say South Korea, the U.S. ally, in reference to any actions that nation may take in retaliation to past or future attacks from the North.
One might even have missed that gaffe, had she not said just seconds later: “Obviously, we gotta stand with our North Korean allies.”
Upon hearing that, Beck immediately butted-in to correct the possible 2012 Republican presidential candidate, quickly interjecting, “South Korea.”
Palin replied with an almost reflexive, “yeah,” but corrected herself in the next remark: “And we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.”
Content on the website for Glenn Beck’s radio show is members-only, but the audio has been posted on Youtube.
Palin’s remarks come as the Obama administration, and it’s ally (South Korea), mull prepare to conduct long-planned naval exercises off the Korean Peninsula. The move is sure to stoke further anger in North Korea, which earlier this week attacked a tiny South Korean island with a barrage of artillery fire, leaving four people dead and more than a dozen wounded.
Even the article’s author, Tucker Reals, couldn’t help himself from jabbing Palin when writing “A simple north-south slip of the tongue or not,” and “Palin’s remarks come as the Obama administration, and it’s ally (South Korea), mull prepare to conduct long-planned naval exercises off the Korean Peninsula. “
What makes this even more transparently hypocritical is his own gaffe in the above quote, writing “mull prepare.”
Nice job, dufus. Kudos to the editor, too.
To any reasonably sane person, Palin’s comments were simple mistakes. Everyone makes them. As a public figure, every word uttered by her will be fairly or unfairly amplified. It is inevitable that, for a person who speaks publicly as much as Palin does, a verbal slip will occur.
Hell, Joe Biden is rarely seen or heard anymore, and he’s the heavyweight champ of gaffes.
As of this writing, Huff-Po’s post about this has garnered over 2,400 comments, most all of which either label Palin as ignorant or an actual ally of North Korea.
How desperate the left has become.
How deliciously sad.
