Sarah The Impaler -- She's Nuts
By: Mark W Adams

First word from of Charlie Gibson's interview with Sarah "The Impaler" Palin shows an intemperance and simplistic bombast that makes Dick Cheney look like the definition of diplomacy. Her naivete of world events and how a nation's leader should present themseves simply boggles the mind.

At least that's how ABC wants this played judging by their headline: "EXCLUSIVE: GOV. SARAH PALIN WARNS WAR MAY BE NECESSARY IF RUSSIA INVADES ANOTHER COUNTRY."

Well, that was the headline according to Politico's Ben Smith. That incendiary tease has now been replaced with
Sarah Palin Defends Experience, Takes Hard Line Approach on National Security. But that really doesn't change the story even if ABC was bullied into changing their slant on it.
The governor advocated for the admittance of Georgia and Ukraine into NATO.

When Gibson said if under the NATO treaty, the United States would have to go to war if Russia again invaded Georgia, Palin responded: "Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help.

"And we've got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable," she told Gibson.

Even pointing out that Palin just got a passport last year tells you about where Russell Goldman, the author of the original piece on ABC's website wanted to take the story versus what parent company Disney deemed acceptable coverage of Caribou Barbie.

No doubt they feared the "HOLY SHIT!" reaction I and so many other rational Americans might have to revisiting cold war memories on September 11th.
