    George Will On Sarah Palin | Nuclear Weapons | ABC Video | Mediaite

    The threshold question, not usually asked, but it’s in everyone’s mind in a presidential election. ‘Should we give this person nuclear weapons?’ And the answer [in Palin's case], answers itself.”

    She could never survive in a campaign long enough to gain a majority vote nationally.


    She would not be able to debate any serious candidate without looking like a fool

    Nope. She's only slightly more qualified than Obama and we all know what kind of bang-up job he's been doing. (Bang-up... That's pretty funny, eh?)

    Yes, I'm sure Palin's first order of business would be to start firing nukes.

    You're all idiots.

    The question I have always asked is "Can a President launch a nuke at their own whim?" I mean he is the CIC and his orders are obeyed. If Obama or some other President woke up one morning and said I want to drop a nuke on Tehran could anybody say no? Would anybody say no? Could anybody stop it? Lets say he decides to drop a nuke on a friendly nation like France? It is preposterous to think it might happen but would we carry the order out?

    It ain't that easy. He doesn't have a button on his night stand.
