ABC News Interview: Palin on Foreign Policy

I just read some excepts from Sarah Palin's interview tonight with ABC News. I am chilled to the bone to think that a candidate for President would decide that this simplistic, uninformed neophyte should be one heartbeat away from the Presidency.

Just a sample of her jejune thinking (bear in mind that what she came up with was the product of hundreds of hours of rigorous preparation by the McCain team):

GIBSON: Would you favor putting Georgia and Ukraine in NATO?

PALIN: Ukraine, definitely, yes. Yes, and Georgia. [snip]

GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?

PALIN: Perhaps so.

Um, no. Definitely so -- no wiggle room allowed. If Georgia successfully enters NATO, we will be 100% treaty-bound to immediately come to Georgia's defense if Russia invades Georgian territory.
