The LORD Will Find Work for Idol Hands to Do
I DON’T WANT Sarah Palin anywhere near the levers of imperial power, but then again, I wouldn’t want anybody at those levers if we could help it.
Do we really want to disqualify people who don’t know the Bush Doctrine from running for office?
Palin apparently stumbled when quizzed about the Bush Doctrine, however, while still insane from an anti-imperialist perspective, (ie: a perspective from which one might support, say, a war against Russia only if their troops presumably “hell-bent on destroying our nation,” were streaming across the Bering Strait to invade the Homeland,) Palin’s phrasing actually seems less insane than the actual Bush Doctrine.
“If there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people, we have every right to defend our country. In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend.”
[SFGate: Palin would support war with Russia]
Less insane than justifying an invasion, after the fact, with, ‘well he wanted weapons of mass destruction.’ That’s a Thought Crime! I mean, this Bush Doctrine is some real Minority Report shit.
Of course, there seems to be an ample amount of crazy going around in the violently defending the United States’ imperial interests is “God’s work” department.
