It appears that the well of stories detailing Sarahpoleon’s dishonesty (or stupidity; take your pick) is never going to run dry.

This little piece of wingtard ignorance gets resurrected EVERY September 11 or so, but it is now relegated mainly to the hardcore wingtard fringe, a place where day is night and right is wrong-just ‘cuz they say so. It is past disturbing that a potential Vice-President is incapable of understanding the difference between al Qaeda and Iraq (much as the current idiot occupying that office can’t,) but this is just one disturbance among hundreds when we talk of Sarahpoleon, and it most certainly isn’t the most outrageous one.

Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would “defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.” The idea that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a view once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself. But it is widely agreed that militants allied with al-Qaeda have taken root in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion.

“America can never go back to that false sense of security that came before September 11, 2001,” she said at the deployment ceremony, which drew hundreds of military families who walked from their homes on the sprawling post to the airstrip where the service was held.

Palin’s return to Alaska coincided with her first extensive interview since she became the Republican vice presidential nominee. In the interview, with ABC News correspondent Charles Gibson, she was confronted with questions about the U.S. relationship with Russia and her fitness for office, and she appeared to struggle when asked to define the “Bush doctrine” on foreign policy. Palin drew repeated follow-up questions from Gibson about whether she believed in the right to “anticipatory self-defense” and crossing other nations’ borders to take action against threats.

“I believe that America has to exercise all options in order to stop the terrorists who are hellbent on destroying America and our allies,” she said after several questions on the topic. “We have got to have all options out there on the table.”

That response put her in line with a view expressed by Sen. Barack Obama, now the Democratic presidential nominee, in August 2007, when he stirred controversy by saying that if he were elected president, he would be willing to attack inside Pakistan with or without approval from the Pakistani government. “If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will,” Obama said. At the time, McCain called Obama’s comments “naive.”

Palin continued to take a hard line on national security issues when asked whether war with Russia could be necessary if Georgia were to join NATO and Russia crossed its borders again. Palin replied, “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,” she said.

So I guess plain stupid is somehow better than naive? And knowing what we now know for sure about how the South Ossetian war came to start, why would anyone with half a brain advocate NATO membership for an aggressor like Georgia?

Sarahpoleon is Chimpy in a skirt, without the forethought of a Chimpy.
