Yet another Sarah Palin debacle

A couple days ago, Sarah Palen posted on her Facebook site a rant against President Obama about sending our tax dollars to a South American State owned Oil Company when we need jobs ourselves.

Well, first of all Ms. Palen, the money wasn’t tax dollars, and the purpose of the Agency that sent the money – Import and Export – is to invest venture capital in foreign ventures what will purchase American goods and services there by creating good American jobs.

It continues to astonish me how colossally uninformed this woman actually is.

I have a friend who’s a devout Republican. I asked him yesterday, “What do you think of Sarah Palen”. He responded that “she was just crucified by the media, and this South American thing, people should just leave her alone for that”.

When Sarah Palen accepted the responsibility of being a 73 year old man away from the Presidency of the United States, you’re damn right she deserves scrutiny. And when that scrutiny revealed the level of ignorance of American law, policy and judicial procedure, she deserved every bit of crucification vented toward her.

There’s an easy way for people to stop Sarah Palen barbs. Sarah needs to shut her misinformed mouth and just go away.

I for one am really tired of Caribou Barbie.
