Palin Gets Slammed for Gaffe; Fights Back With Epic Retort

Posted: Nov 28, 2010 12:02 PM
Palin mixed up her Koreas during an interview with Beck's radio station on Wednesday:
This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy... But obviously we've gotta stand with our North Korean allies.
For this, she was roundly slammed in the mainstream media, despite the fact that she had already correctly identified South Korea as our ally previously in the interview. Her retort, via Facebook, is epic:
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that… 

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy.
You should read the whole thing here on her Facebook wall.
