Palin quote for 8 April 2010:Sarah Palin
on Sean Hannity about President Obama’s nuclear review that promises not to threaten nuclear action against a country in compliance with international proliferation standards:
"It’s kind of like getting out there on the playground, a bunch of kids ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, ‘Go ahead, punch me in the face and I’m not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want to with me.’”
The new treaty's provisions are
"kind of like" the playground scenario Palin suggests. Her ability to simplify complex problems is a true gift. This country should be grateful that she's out there spreading the message that, if the United States was a seven year old kid let out for recess, it's pure folly to brandish a nuclear arms treaty at the other classmates. How many times have we made that very same mistake when we were so very young and innocent?
But let's not give Palin all the credit here. She's clearly benefited from the strategic thinking of Michelle Bachmann who joined her
for a meeting of the minds.
UPDATE: For an even more cerebral analysis of Obama's foreign policy, Liz Cheney has a boffo speech (at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference
) where she points out his multiple failings.
