Sarah Palin is a national security risk.  We are in negotiations with Iran on issues of grave importance and this nutcase starts talking about invading Iran.  Now, I know I have 40 year old barbells down in my basement with more brains and "common sense" than she does, but for some reason she gets a lot of media attention and what she says can impact national events, especially when the receiver of the message is as ill-informed and paranoid as her.

What does the crackpot from Iran think of the crackpot from Wasilla?  It's hard not to conclude that he's probably concerned about a former vice presidential candidate suggesting invasion.  Now, I don't want to get into a litany of Ms. Palin's shortcomings - I've got to get to bed tonight - but her utter irresponsbility in her "interview" with what can only be described as Mike Wallace's disappointment is a good example of what she is and what she would be as a President - a train wreck who would do damage to America that would make Mr. Bush look like Albert Schweitzer.

Now, I know 75% of America wants her to run for President - half the Republicans and all the Democrats - but we have problems with Iran right now and someone ought to explain to her why advocating attacking Iran on national TV is a bad idea, perhaps she could keep notes; she has room on the palm of her right hand.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
