“In what respect, Charlie?”

[Another old post, I could just delete this, but its got a great line describing fans of Keith Olbermann, so its worth publishing.]

In the interview that aired on ABC Thursday night, Charlie Gibson asked Sarah Palin the needlessly imprecise question, “Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?” He might have just as easily asked, “Do you agree with the Bush doctrine of preemptive war?” Mrs. Palin’s initial response — the title of this post — has liberal blogs and the mindless, unshowered Keith Olbermann drones in a twitter over her “cluelessness”. But really it is Gibson, the self-appointed vocab-quizzer, who comes off looking more unprepared than her.

Peter D. Feaver, who worked on the Bush national security strategy as a staff member on the National Security Council, said he has counted as many as seven distinct Bush doctrines. They include the president’s second-term “freedom agenda”; the notion that states that harbor terrorists should be treated no differently than terrorists themselves; the willingness to use a “coalition of the willing” if the United Nations does not address threats; and the one Gibson was talking about — the doctrine of preemptive war.

    Regardless of how many Bush doctrines there are — or were — does anyone really care what Sarah Palin thinks about any of them?

    If Sarah Palin is the alternative choice to McCain or any other RHINO that the republicans might offer up, I care alot about what Palin thinks.

    Those that reject her or any other conservative candidate just because the MSM hounds them constantly, are going to end up again with the next MSM offering, just like you did last time with McCain, in which case, the results will be the same!

    Sarah may not be the right candidate for next time, but she certainly doesn’t deserve your disdain. She would be a darn sight better than what we have now.
