Sarah Palin ended the notion that her figurehead leadership of the Alaska National Guard somehow prepared her for foreign policy leadership. No sensible American ever believed that nonsense anyway. She cannot even hold a discussion about foreign policy.

Palin's comments regarding Georgia, NATO membership and possible war with Russia were ill-advised and provocative loose talk.

Ilan Goldenberg, Huffington Post, said of Palin's comments:

"No sane American or European leader would ever ever ever give an answer like that. You do not get into hypotheticals about nuclear war. You just don't."

Norman J. Ornstein, American Enterprise Institute said:

"A combination of utter inexperience and utter arrogance is about the worst possible combination I can imagine. Not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is would be bad enough, but saying unequivocally that Georgia should be in NATO-- meaning we would now perhaps be in a state of war with Russia-- and then without a beat saying that military action should be the last resort-- shows a series of knowledge and logic gaps that ought to shake every foreign policy specialist, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, to his or her roots."

Sarah Palin does not have the qualifications to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency of the United States.
