Quote of the Day

"This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously we’ve gotta stand with our North Korean allies."

-- Sarah Palin on Glenn Beck's radio show

Now, of course this is just a slip of the tongue. But if Glenn Beck were to follow his usual line of "logic" -- the one he so ridiculously employs whenever discussing, say, Barack Obama -- then Palin's comment would be proof of the fact that she's secretly a Manchurian Candidate who will rise to power only to immediately hand us all over to her communist dictator overlord.

(Adding: You know, every time I go back and read this quote I ask myself if this blithering idiot can say anything without completely fucking it up. But very much to his credit, Cesca lays out in ominous terms why, knowing what we know about the slavish American worship of the cult of mindless celebrity, we underestimate her presidential prospects at our own peril.)

So... I was wondering how we ended up under N. Korean domination in that new Homefront video game. Now I know. Palin gets elected in 2012 and the rest is (future) history.

"Don'tcha know, when Mr. Kim Wrong* Ill rears his ugly head and starts lobbin' those rockets, where ya think they will come first? Afterall we can see North Korea from my house!"

* (Because you know she would not resist making up some moronic nickname)

Slip of the tongue my ass (damn that looks and sounds dirtier than I'm intending). I'm sure she spoke exactly the words she was thinking at the time -- she couldn't tell the two Koreas apart even after a thorough debriefing. I can only imagine the malaprops she'll generate the next time the Republic of China (a.k.a. Taiwan) is in the news and she feels compelled to comment.

If Sarah didn't mean to say it, then she can refudiate it.
