Foreign policy expert Sarah Palin (R-Bitter Grifter) weighed in on Syria and made Americans regret not electing her in 2008 when she tweeted, “LET ALLAH SORT IT OUT ‘So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?'”
This linked to her Facebook Page, where she quoted herself, which is a step up from her fake Facebook Account that used to “like” all of her own postings.

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin
Apparently. Such deep analysis requires serious thought.
And looky here, Sarah Palin said exactly what all of the pundits said about Syria yesterday, “Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his “red line” promise regarding chemical weapons.”
I’m sure this doesn’t embarrass the media at all, because Sarah Palin, who thought Africa was a country and didn’t know the difference between North and South Korea, said it. Palin did not know who her son was going to fight in Iraq. Asked who attacked America on 9/11, she suggested several times that it was Saddam Hussein — as she was running for Vice President.
Maybe it matters that when she was running for office, Palin was accusing Obama of being weak because he wouldn’t shoot first and ask questions later:
Q: Secretaries of State Baker, Kissinger, Powell, they have all advocated some level of engagement with enemies. Do you think these former secretaries of state are wrong on that?
PALIN: No and Dr. Henry Kissinger especially. I had a good conversation with him recently. And he shared with me his passion for diplomacy. And that’s what John McCain and I would engage in also. But with some of these dictators who hate America and hate what we stand for, with our freedoms, our democracy, our tolerance, our respect for women’s rights, those who would try to destroy what we stand for cannot be met with just sitting down on a presidential level as Barack Obama had said he would be willing to do. That is beyond bad judgment. That is dangerous.
From killing everyone because they hate us for our freedoms to let Allah sort it out is quite a jump. Translation: Sarah Palin represents modern day Republicans perfectly. She has no argument, she just knee-jerks from bitter spittle to raging accusations always based on the principle of opposition to Obama.
After team Palin tried to shine Palin’s foreign policy expertise by claiming she’d been to an Iraq battle zone when she’d been to the border for a few moments, USN concluded, “John McCain spent weeks or months arguing that Barack Obama was unqualified to talk about Iraq because the Illinois senator had not been to the country recently and so did not have any sense of the situation on the ground. By that same logic, shouldn’t Sarah Palin not be qualified to speak about the issue? Presumably her minutes by the border didn’t impart her with great expertise on the ground situation.”
Sarah Palin is using the same criticism against Obama as the media.
There’s not much to say here except to remind those of you who say she is irrelevant that just five years ago, Republicans and the press were telling us that she was qualified to be the Vice President of this country. They are now pretending she’s going to run for Senate.
Of course she only did this to get money for her PAC, as evidenced by the smirking pandering on her Facebook Page with a link to her PAC. No word on whether her bitter jealousy of Obama has abated even one iota since 2008, but she is still raising money by wagging her tongue at him whenever she can.
Imagine if this woman and John McCain were in charge right now. If you think for one minute that she wouldn’t be catering to the oil companies like she did in Alaska with her pipeline and beating the drums to attack anyone she claimed hate us for our “freedoms”, I’ve got a PAC for you to donate to. However, it’s amusing to note Republicans retreating into scattershot isolationism in order to oppose Obama.
