Fair enough, but you're not the Governor of Alaska. If you want to live a provincial life that fine. If, however, you're running for the office of vice president of the most powerful country in the world you should know a bit about the rest of the world.
Before going on television to be interviewed about the crisis in Korea it would be a good idea to find out that America's allies were the South Koreans not the North Koreans. This isn't abstract, America fought a war against the North Koreans in the 1950's. Politics aside, Sarah Palin is stupid. There is no other democracy, (I was going to say country, but look at North Korea) on Earth where Sarah Palin wouldn't be treated as a joke. Sorry is treated as a joke, today here and now.
We've got a really annoying woman over here as well. She's called Katie Price, she's in all the celebrity magazines and reality television shows, just as publicity hungry as Palin. And she inspires the same feelings of devotion and loathing over here that Palin does over there. The main difference is, she's not running for public office, because no-one would vote for her, like Palin she just too stupid.
It's not just politics, I know American politics are quite to the right of our politics. Your Democrats are the same as our Conservatives. So your brand of Republicanism is too right wing for us. Similarly our Labour party is too left wing for you, so there's a really different way of looking at things anyway. I loathe Margaret Thatcher, I don't think she did our country any favours at all, but I still don't think she was stupid.
If you've got to have a candidate with wacky right wing theories why not go for Glen Beck? I find his politics just as loathsome as Palin's, but he's not stupid. It would be truely frightening were he to become president though. In a tight fix he may panic and launch the bomb at North Korea, but not at South Korea. Even he's not dumb enough to start a nuclear war by bombing his allies. You can't say that about Sarah Palin. She should stick at being a celebrity and leave politics to people who can not only name a newspaper, but hopefully have read one or two as well. How can you look at Sarah Palin and say she's not stupid?
