Aw, Jebus. Dear Lord baby Jebus:
(H/T Think Progress)
WALLACE: How hard do you think President Obama would be to defeat in 2012?
PALIN: It depends on a few things, say he played — I got this from Buchanan — say he played the war card. Say he decided to declare war on Iran or decide to really come out and do whatever he could to support Israel–which I would like him to do. That changes the dynamics of what we can assume will happen between now and three years. Because I think if the election were today, Obama would not be elected.
WALLACE: You’re not suggesting that Obama would cynically play the war card?
PALIN: I’m not suggesting that, I’m saying if he did, things would dramatically change if he decided to toughen up and do all that he can to secure our nation and secure our allies. I think people would shift their thinking a bit.
The question Wallace asked was basically “what does Obama need to do to win in 2012”. The question Palin answered, also too, was “what does Obama need to do get votes from teabagging nutjobs like you?”
Only if she were answering that question does her answer make any sense whatsoever. Because God knows that every red-blooded teabagger loves them some war against Ay-rabs. If it involves killin’ Ay-rabs, that’s okayfine by them, you betchya.
It’s a scary and depressing thought that there might, just maybe, be enough people in this country that a far right wing actress like Sarah Palin could earn the Republican nomination for president.
It’s enough to make you start taking German lessons. Or French. Or Spanish.
I’m just sayin’…
