Absolutely stunning ignorance


Many observers have argued that Palin could never win because of her embarrassing lack of expertise, knowledge, or interest in foreign policy. Her appearance on Fox News host Glenn Beck’s radio show today, captured by Oliver Willis, suggests they may be right:

CO-HOST: How would you handle a situation like the one that just developed in North Korea? <...>

PALIN: But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies. We’re bound to by treaty –

PALIN: Eh, Yeah. And we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.

If that woman gets anywhere near the White House, we are so freakin' screwed. Really.

I found it here.
