Imagine, President Sarah Palin

with 4 comments

Imagine President Palin.

If that thought doesn’t send a chill down your spine then I know what will.

Imagine someone who can’t differentiate between North and South Korea, as the leader of the world’s only hyperpower.

Imagine President Palin’s finger on the nuclear button.

Imagine the idiocy of allowing such a person to obtain the highest office in the land.

Now think on her latest comments, the Torygraph has more:

“Writing on her Facebook page on Monday, Mrs Palin questioned why the US authorities were not looking for him in the same way that it had hunted suspected terrorists.

“The latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.

“First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months?

“He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders?”

She went on: “What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?”

I suppose a President Palin would want to nuke the Internet, if she actually knew where and what it was.

Frightening.

Update 1: President Putin is none too happy either.

  1. Cheer up Modernity. There’s no way in hall Palin could become president. A minority of Americans think she’s the Second Coming but it is a minority. The centre wouldn’t vote for her. Besides nobody becomes president unless they are acceptable to the Pentagon and Wall Street and neither would want someone like Palin in the Oval Office. If Palin gets the Republican nomination, which is highly unlkely it’ll just ensure Obama’s second term.

  2. THe thought is frightening. The Americans had a party called the “Know Nothings”, the prospect of a president who lives up to that name horrifies!

  3. But those Know Nothings were smart by comparison, whatever you thought of their politics, whereas Palin isn’t.

    She is consumed by her own rhetoric and that is dangerous, particularly if she ever got her finger near the nuclear button.
