RussiaToday: Sarah Palin - Tina Fey look-a-like and mother-of-the-year nominee - caused fresh outrage by announcing that war with Russia is a possibility for the US.
During an interview with ABC news she was asked whether war with Russia was likely.
"Perhaps so," Palin replied, "I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help."
The Alaskan governor expressed awareness of the fact that Georgia is not a member of NATO, but insisted that, like Ukraine, it should be. Palin also pointed out that she is well-equipped to talk about Russia since "they're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia here from Alaska.''
Okay, time out! I'm not saying she not qualified to discuss Russian issues, but I am saying "they're our next-door neighbors" is not a qualification to discuss Russian issues. If that's all it takes, then lets caucus China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Finland, etc. before we make any decision. Or hey maybe we should get another Texas politician and they can make all the decisions on Mexico. Awesome ideas.
