In a 20-minute speech, Palin praised Trump and expressed her desire to “Make America Great Again”, using the opportunity to go on a rambling and confused attack on both parties. She condemned Barack Obama’s foreign policy and the Iran deal, and went on to say that under the current administration, “we kowtow and apologize and then bend over and say ‘thank you,enemy’.” Instead, Palin said we should “let our warriors do their job and go kick Isis’s ass.” She also attacked Obama for his 2008 “hopey changy stuff.”

The erstwhile governor of Alaska also went after her own party, accusing establishment Republicans of “wearing political correctness like a suicide vest” and said that in Washington, politicians “get high off of opium, off other people’s money.” Palin also bemoaned “exploding budgets and the crony capitalists to be able to suck off them.”



:D


Palin's desperate need to be in front of TV cameras is probably the driving force here. In that, she's a perfect partner for the Trumpster.

She offers the same simplistic populist soundbites as Trump too. Kicking ISIS 'ass' sounds great to every single reasonable human being on the planet right now. But what then? What comes next? What will fill the ISIS-shaped void? How will the Sunni-Shia conflict be resolved? The tribal issues be ironed out? The extremist franchises all over north and sub-Saharan Africa be dealt with? How do you stop these issues in the longterm (so American weaponry and troops don't HAVE to be deployed, which is after all an extremely costly affair)?

Kicking 'ass' is essentially the same guff as Dubya era 'let's roll'.

We all know how that ended up. Just ask the Yazidis.


Best,

Andy
