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.There, FIFY.
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 slogananything, she'd know that.
