A Serious Question

Posted by That Other Mike on 09/04/2010

Is the Confederate Yankee the stupidest man alive in the world today? This isn’t mere hyperbole or rhetoric, but a serious question prompted by this post:

Obama Questions Palin’s Nuclear Wisdom

He simply doesn’t know when to shut up:

President Barack Obama on Thursday made clear he was not going to take advice from Republican Sarah Palin when it comes to decisions about the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

Palin, the former vice presidential candidate, has not been shy about criticizing Obama’s policies and this week weighed in on his revamped nuclear strategy, saying it was like a child in a playground who says ‘punch me in the face, I’m not going to retaliate.’

“I really have no response to that. The last I checked, Sarah Palin is not much of an expert on nuclear issues,” Obama said in an interview with ABC News.

Palin’s view of nuclear weapons was shaped by her stint as the commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard, our first line of defense against Soviet nuclear weapons. Obama has held his same views since he was a stoner college student and has showed no signs of maturing.

Which of the two would you trust?

No further commentary necessary, res ipsa loquitur and all that; it’s almost enough to make you think he’s a Poe.

Still, it’s nice to know that the US will be a surefire winner if stupidity is ever made an Olympic event.

    Where’s that “facepalm” image when I need it?

  2. It’s in short supply, where CY is concerned. It’s oversubscribed.

    Ah, yes… I’ve just been reading over there, and I see what you mean. 🙄
