Words that should never be used in the same sentence - “North Korea is our ally!”
Everyone knows North Korea is not our ally, and would not even harbor that thought in their mind. But Sarah Palin, the all knowing one - the very same one who went to five different colleges to get one degree, and criticizes President Obama for everything from his handling of the September 11th 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, to his handling of the Great Depression of the 1930′s – is under the impression that Kim Jong Il of North Korea is an ally of the United States.
The revelation of our new friends in North Korea was made in friendly territory, in an interview on the Glenn Beck Show. Throwing soft ball questions to the presidential hopeful, Glenn Back asked a question that any 5th grader would be able to answer in a more coherent manner than the presumed 2012 Republican presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. What would she do differently than the president, in reference to North Korea’s aggression to the South?
The college hopper, the Republican political goddess answered, and in two separate instances, referred to North Korea as our ally. The first occasion;
”We’re not having a lot of faith that the White House is going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is going to do,”
Sanction in this case refers to giving approval. The dictionary’s meaning is: authoritative permission or approval, as for an action.
So to summarize Palin’s first statement, she is asking for the White House to approve the actions of North Korea. Beck didn’t correct her here, so Sarah Palin continued;
”Obviously, we gotta stand with our North Korean allies.”
Beck, now realizing that his future president is referring to Kim Jong Il as our ally, quickly jumped in and corrected Sarah, telling her that South Korea is our ally, not North.
Calling North Korea our ally once is a mistake. Doing it twice means something is seriously wrong with you.
But it really doesn’t matter what Sarah Palin says. Conservatives and Republicans in general are not concerned about knowledge, they’re more looking for someone, anyone that has an “R” besides their name and is able to hold an audience’s attention. Sarah Palin has both qualities. Their push now is to get her elected. When she becomes president, we will worry about our North Korea ally later.
