Sarah Palin's ignorant imperialism

Caribou Barbie is a fucking moron, says journalist/historian, most of Planet Earth.

She's been going around to Tea Party rallies, invoking the spirit of revolutionary Boston and castigating Obama for failing to exalt American power and punish our adversaries. She seems blissfully unaware that the imperial arrogance she's preaching isn't how the American founders behaved. It's how the British behaved, and why they lost. Palin represents everything the original Tea Party was against.

British hawks responded exactly as Palin now recommends: by focusing on ego, power, and dominance. There was no America , as a nation, until Britain foolishly behaved as Palin now wants America to behave. Her advice is a prescription for superpower suicide. If she understood the Boston Tea Party as more than a slogan anything, she'd know that.
There, FIFY.

Good link, Maru. I still wonder sometimes whether Palin actually BELIEVES most of the crap she says, or whether she's just being a cynical demagogue for an intellectually lazy population segment? After that episode where she was caught reading off her 'hand notes', I'm leaning toward the cynical demagogue, because she's probably just mouthing the words if she has to write down such basic, simple concepts on her hand.
And I'm not even going to get into the whole US 'exceptionalism' position that she's defending - - there's entire books that have been written that knock holes in that argument (I'm reading one now called "The Myth of American Exceptionalism" by Godfrey Hodgson - - an excellent history/analysis of this myth), where the authors rely on more than a folksy MILF persona to persuade the audience... they actually use historical facts and concepts.
