Sorry, Starkers....you've got this one 100% wrong...
NO, you did! Reread my post and you will see that my remark had nothing to do with Chavez being a dictator, terrorist or anything else. It was about Sarah Palin putting her mouth in gear before engaging her brain.
Were Palin a World leader she may have a right/responsibilty to say something... but she's just a jumped up governor who's bitten off more than she can chew, so is bumping her gums on sensitive issues and saying shit she thinks people want to hear.
Obama has said he'd meet with dictators without "any preconditions". On this, Obama is both naive anddangerous.
Oh, so you'd rather he go in there with a heavy and uncompromising hand and all guns a blazing? Open dialogue may be just the thing that's needed to save the lives of more young miltary men and women.
Thank goodness, Palin knows a dictator-want-to-be when she sees one and is courageious enough to say it like it is
And what makes you think a dictator is going to respect/fear Palin anyway?? More to the point, what makes you think Palin has the balls and experience to deal with Chavez.. or any other dictator, for that matter? Moose shooting doesn't count... moose don't shoot back and/or plan strategic counter-offensives.
First, is it true or not? Or do you just put anything up here on this board hoping it sticks?
I keep abreast/informed on World events, and the Palin/Chavez thing is something several news carriers thought newsworthy, so yes, it is true that Palin insulted Chavez and they had a run-in....
And as for putting stuff up and hoping it sticks, I have seen enough of Palin on TV to know that she is a blithering political idiot who come across as lacking communication skills without a teleprompter or cue cards. Palin's rhetoric, speeches, diatribes without these aids is lacking coherent thought and are hardly convincing... and given that the McCain camp has accused her of grandstanding and not taking GOP directions, I'd say that makes her far more dangerous than Barack Obama, who comes across as considerably more thoughtful and would prefer not to engage in another war.
Yes, the US needs change and a breath of fresh air, but Palin is NOT it
Thank goodness, Palin knows a dictator-want-to-be when she sees one and is courageious enough to say it like it is...Thanks, this is one more reason to admire her!
Knowing something and shooting one's mouth off about it are two different things. Smart people know things and act accordingly. Making noise without any hope of advantage is stupid.
Got it in a nutshell there, Doc..... Palin is far from being smart, and her past will catch up with her, if it already hasn't. The Senate inquiry into her abuse of powers may only be the beginning of her fall....'er, crash with a large thud from grace.
