Sarah Gets a Bum Rap

Sarah Palin be an idiot (applause, cheering and stamping of feet) but her having said "North Korea" when she might well have meant "South Korea" is very weak evidence of the point.  It could be that she doesn't know which is which.  But if professors lost tenure for saying "Plato" when they meant "Aristotle," we'd have some very empty faculties.  For Sarah, this is a rap which, if it sticks at all, sticks only because it confirms an already-deep-seated conviction, like seeing Michael Dukakis in a tank.

Yo dude! Which way to Pyonyang?
