Even John McCain isn’t so foolish to talk about going to war with Russia

by twit

Via Politico on August 12, 2008:

McCain has led harsh denunciations of Russia’s invasion of Georgia, though neither he nor any other leader has suggested that the West has any real way to blunt Moscow’s ultimate intentions.

Which hopefully means that we now can all agree that Governor Palin is dangerously unqualified to be Vice President:

GIBSON: Would you favor putting Georgia and Ukraine in NATO?

PALIN: Ukraine, definitely, yes. Yes, and Georgia.

GIBSON: Because Putin has said he would not tolerate NATO incursion into the Caucasus.

PALIN: Well, you know, the Rose Revolution, the Orange Revolution, those actions have showed us that those democratic nations, I believe, deserve to be in NATO.

Putin thinks otherwise. Obviously, he thinks otherwise, but…

GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn’t we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?

PALIN: 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.

You’d think a Governor whose national security credentials are based on Alaska being close to Russia would understand this…

    The interview was a trainwreck…she showed her ignorance and her inability to think intelligently under pressure.

    Sarah Palin is wrong for this country.

    She does not care about YOU or the U.S.

    She will follow Israel into Iran, go to war with Russia, and will sacrifice our troops, spend our remaining dollars and throw away what little respect we have left in this world.

    Hey, she’s qualified to speak about Russia because, on a clear day, you can SEE Russia from Alaska.

    Leave the bitch alone!

    This is Quayle–in drag–all over again!!!!!!!!!. OMG!!! What in the world?!!!!!!! I thought that was a nightmare from the past that I would not have to tell my grandchildren about, but now we have the female version of Dan Quayle????? I feel like crying endlessly, for the fate of this country…!

  4. Thank you all for your comments.

    Kate,

    I agree, the interview was the best indication that we’ve had that Palin is not only unqualified, but dangerous for this country. I like your blog, and I encourage folks to check it out.

    Pat,

    Right? You’d think a Governor from a state with such a large amount of this country’s oil supply and so close to Russia would understand that if Russia was going to strike the US, Alaska would be a prime target…

    Athena,

    I don’t want you to cry, but Palin is far, far worse than Dan Quayle. For example, Quayle actually served in the National Guard. He went to law school. He was an investigator for the Consumer Protection Division of the Indiana Attorney General’s office. He served in the US House of Representatives for two terms. Then he was a Senator for two years before becoming nominated as George H.W. Bush’s vice president. It is true that Quayle is well-known for being an “intellectual lightweight,” but he had far more experience when he was nominated as a candidate for vice president than Governor Palin does now. Also, Palin has a far better chance of becoming President than Quayle ever did, due to McCain’s age and history of health problems.

    Thank you so much for the compliment on my blog. I live in the mountains of Colorado where I have no cable access, and I was very interested in getting more information on the candidates from various sources, including sources from out of the country. As I was conducting my online research, I thought there might be some value in creating a resource for others that had a broader and deeper reach.

    The blog is not fancy, but I’ve tried to pull in news that gets to the bottom of who Sarah Palin really is, and along the way I am finding out more than I ever wanted to know!
