The Bush Doctrine Who?

Just fucking shoot me.

Here's a snippet from Sarah Palin's interview on ABC news where she's asked whether she agrees with the Bush Doctrine, the highly controversial principles on which we based our invasion of Iraq.

Guess what? She doesn't know what it is.

Charlie: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?

Palin: In what respect, Charlie?

Charlie: What do you interpret it to be?

Palin: His worldview.

Charlie: No, No, the Bush Doctrine. He enunciated it in September 2002, before the Iraq War.

Palin: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is to rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hellbent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership--and that's the beauty of American elections and democracy--with new leadership comes the opportunity to do things better.

Charlie: The Bush Doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory defense. We have the right to preemptively strike any other country that we believe is going to attack us.

Clearly Charlie Gibson was setting a vile liberal media trap by asking a serious question.
