Special Extra: Campaign Blitz #1 — Joe Biden is a Moron

Seeing as how we have heartily endorsed McCain-Palin in this November’s presidential election, we feel it is our duty from time to time between then and now to publish a brief post in support of the cause.  We begin today with this:  Joe Biden is a moron, and we can prove it.

EDITORIAL: Sarah Palin, Right on Russia

Sarah Palin, Right on Russia

Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has come under attack recently from certain crazed leftists who accuse her of being a war monger because she stated that, if Russia attached Georgia after the latter’s admission to NATO, the U.S. would “perhaps” go to war with Russia to defend her ally. Then she explained:

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.  What I think is that smaller democratic countries that are invaded by a larger power is something for us to be vigilant against … We have got to show the support, in this case, for Georgia. The support that we can show is economic sanctions perhaps against Russia, if this is what it leads to. It doesn’t have to lead to war and it doesn’t have to lead, as I said, to a Cold War, but economic sanctions, diplomatic pressure, again, counting on our allies to help us do that in this mission of keeping our eye on Russia and Putin and some of his desire to control and to control much more than smaller democratic countries.

There is nothing the least bit unusual or unreasonable about this view, but the moonbats have never let that stop them before and so it must have come as a rather disturbing shock to them to hear both former Secretary of State Colin Powell and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright say exactly the same thing recently.

Palin on Russia

Commenter “Kolchak” points us to a recent interview of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Governor of Alasks, with ABC’s Charles Gibson, where she discusses Russia. Uh-oh, Mr. Putin. Uh-oh, lying dumbocrats.  Palin gets Russia, to a “T”.  T as in “trillion,” the amount the corrupt Russian stock market nearly has lost in the past few months.  And let’s not forget, Palin wasn’t even hired for her foreign policy knowledge, but for her experience as an elected executive, which is far greater than any other candidate in the field. Barack Obama has none, and by hiring Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate, he has admitted what is obvious — that he has no foreign policy experience either.  John McCain, on the other hand, has more foreign policy experience than all the other three candidates put together. Go McCain! Go Palin!  (NOTE:  ABC controversially edited many of Palin’s remarks and, while published on their website, didn’t air them on TV; some suggest this was done to make Palin look ignorant or bellicose, an act of partisanship we condemn if it occurred.  The full remarks are published below.).

GIBSON: Let’s start, because we are near Russia, let’s start with Russia and Georgia. The administration has said we’ve got to maintain the territorial integrity of Georgia. Do you believe the United States should try to restore Georgian sovereignty over South Ossetia and Abkhazia?

PALIN: First off, we’re going to continue good relations with Saakashvili there. I was able to speak with him the other day and giving him my commitment, as John McCain’s running mate, that we will be committed to Georgia. And we’ve got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable and we have to keep…

GIBSON: You believe unprovoked.

PALIN: I do believe unprovoked and we have got to keep our eyes on Russia, under the leadership there. I think it was unfortunate. That manifestation that we saw with that invasion of Georgia shows us some steps backwards that Russia has recently taken away from the race toward a more democratic nation with democratic ideals.That’s why we have to keep an eye on Russia. And, Charlie, you’re in Alaska. We have that very narrow maritime border between the United States, and the 49th state, Alaska, and Russia. They are our next door neighbors.We need to have a good relationship with them. They’re very, very important to us and they are our next door neighbor.
