    Sarah Palin is accusing the White House of not showing enough support for the people of Libya still protesting against Muammar Qadhafi.

    On her Facebook page Tuesday night, Palin said that it is “a little perplexing” to watch the administration’s reaction to events in the Middle East.

    “There was a statement on the horrible earthquake in New Zealand, and certainly our hearts go out to all those affected by this horrible natural disaster," Palin wrote. "But nothing on the slaughter in Libya?”

    As on Egypt, White House officials have been careful to not lean too far forward in voicing their preferred outcome in a far-from-resolved conflict. But Palin criticized President Barack Obama’s restraint, writing that “now is the time to speak out.”

    Palin highlighted Qadhafi’s ties to past acts of terrorism in characterizing the longtime Libyan dictator as “Osama before Osama hit the scene.”

    The former Alaska governor also suggested that NATO establish “a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people.”

    A no-fly zone enforced by NATO? lol.

    This is the problem with the Palin phenomenon. Now, a few million 'Mericans are convinced, with no rational thought, that the best (and only patriotic) response to Libya is to create a NATO-enforced no-fly zone. Failure to create a no-fly zone will serve as proof that NATO hates America and sides with Radical Islam.

    Sure thing Sarah, we should invade or bomb or built more rockets or something as that brought down Mubarak and Russia and communism, right, no, oh, then we should claim they have WMDs and invade and waste lives, destroy families, and spend billions while our cities and roads fall apart, no, oh, then we should give speeches and label evil empires and then built more rockets cause they helped protect us from a 911 type attack, no, oh, jeez, this is all so confusing, this history stuff and all these deaths, you know like in Africa or North Korea or some other place in which gawd in all her supreme majesty proclaimed the US should bomb and invade and build or some thing like that, oh, no, we should reduce the budget on the backs of the poor so we can build and bomb and remove a poor women's right to family support services as we build and bomb and invade and stick our nose in, and oh, no, but we should reduce the budget except for the bombs and rockets and let the poor be sick, and gawd forbid that gays marry, and who's ahead on Idol and did you see CSI and reality TV as we build more rockets and bombs. Only in America would so large a fool get so large an audience.



    "This must be what it’s like when a country goes insane, when it falls down a rabbit hole and tries to pretend that everything is normal.

    It can’t tell truths from lies. Hucksters pose as upright men, and people imagine they are Solons, avatars of insight come down from the ages. Sleazy operators pass themselves off as statesmen, as thinkers of deep gravitas, and the crowds, unable to distinguish sanctimony from sincerity, bravado from bullshit, lap it up.

    Let’s be clear. It was the Republicans who wrecked the economy. Both their people and their policies drove the economy into the ditch. They wrecked the economy not once, but twice in the last eighty years.

    So Republicans condescending to instruct Americans about how to fix the economy is like the captain of the Titanic lecturing shipping operators about safe procedures for navigating the north Atlantic. No sane society would tolerate it. But this one does." When a Country Goes Insane | Common Dreams

    Palin is a whole lot more like Reagan than Obama ever dreamed of...

    Reagan knew how to deal with Moammar...the mad dog of the middle east...

    Not even the former people in the Regan administration believes that bullshit, who the fuck are you trying to kid? Stop making excuses for unqualified pieces of shit like Palin simply because she's a good looking piece of milf tail to you. That shit is old.

    Palin is an idiot whose grasp of international relations could be written on the back of a stamp.
