Sarah Palin Tells Beck We Must “Stand With Our North Korean Allies”

Sarah Palin's mouth... the gift that keeps on giving. No, really. She just won't quit. Yesterday, Glenn Beck asked her on his radio show how she would handle the developing situation between North and South Korea. Typically, the waters were too deep:

"Well, North Korea, this is stemming from a greater problem where we're all sitting around asking, 'Oh no, what are we going to do?'" Palin said. "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."

"This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies. We're bound by treaty..."

"South Korean," the co-host corrected.

"Yeah," Palin continued. "We're also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes."

It's entirely possible Palin doesn't know North from South, but more likely this is yet another case of the reality-show star's lack of policy nuance. No doubt she will grouse about the “unfairness” of the media jumping on her every gaffe, but at some point this woman has got to recognize that her inability to grasp the most basic of issues is not just idiotic–it's detrimental to the country. Her presidential aspirations are a national security threat.
