Greetings From Afghanada

Um… WTF?

Three days after a mostly gaffe-free debate performance, the Alaska governor fumbled during a speech in which she praised U.S. soldiers for “fighting terrorism and protecting us and our democratic values”.

“They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan,” she told several hundred supporters at a fundraising event in San Francisco.

Tina Fey will never be able to keep up.

The Only Tool In The Kit

Yet another example of Dubya’s genius for foreign policy:

According to CNN, the US is going to sell $6.4B in Weapons To Taiwan

State Department deputy spokesman Robert Wood said Congress — whose approval is needed for the deal to go through — was notified Friday afternoon. He indicated the administration expects congressional approval quickly.

So, at the same time our economy is tanking, we poke a stick in the eye of our biggest creditor. I’m quite sure this makes some kind of sense in Bushland. Too bad the rest of us have to live with the results of their fantasies.

Like the old saying goes: When all you have is a stick, every problem looks like an eye…
