When does it end, Sarah Palin? When does it end???
Less than 24 hours after the world learned Osama bin Laden was dead, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin took the stage at Colorado Christian University to headline a group of speakers who paid tribute to American troops and hailed the killing of the world’s most-wanted man.
“Their courage and their determination brought us justice,” Palin said of those who hunted the terrorist figurehead for nearly 10 years. “They know that freedom isn’t free. It’s a God-given right and worth fighting for.”
Palin never mentioned President Barack Obama by name — instead saying, “We thank President (George W.) Bush for having made the right calls to set up this victory.”
We wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt: maybe in the emotion of the moment she accidentally forgot to mention President Obama by name. She didn’t forget his name when it came time to talk trash though.
Striking a more political note, Palin said American troops need clear leadership. She cited the Obama administration’s policy in Libya as an example of “a lack of clarity.”
“We can’t fight every war,” she said. “We can’t undo every injustice in the world.
“We don’t go looking for dragons to slay.”
Wait, isn’t that exactly how Bush allegedly “set up this victory”: chasing dragons and weapons of mass distruction?
