Palin admits she'd approach foreign policy like Nixon on a playground.



No, Sarah... It isn't like saying "I won't hit back". It's much more akin to saying "I'm not going to respond to a punch by firebombing the families of everyone on this playground".

There's nothing weak or wrong about not adopting Nixon's "Madman" strategy. It didn't work in terms of de-escalation precisely because the world is not a primary school playground. People who think it is should be kept as far away from political and military power as possible.

Sarah Palin calls the teachings of Jesus "unacceptable."

"but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also."

Just sayin'.

Why do I get the feeling folks like See Sawah run are only happy if something really terrible happens to others?
