Palin to share stage with Islam critic

The Associated Press reports:

Sarah Palin will share the stage in Colorado with a former senior military intelligence official who disparaged Islam while helping to lead the war on terror after Sept. 11.

Monday evening's speech was already scheduled before Sunday's killing of Osama bin Laden. The Republican former vice presidential candidate is speaking at a fundraiser at Colorado Christian University with Retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin.

He said that America's enemy was Satan and that one Muslim Somali warlord was an idol worshipper. Boykin later apologized and said he did not mean to insult Islam. He retired in 2007.

The event in the Denver suburb of Lakewood raises money for a charity for families of fallen service members, the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

Things just don't seem to be going her way, do they?

I wish I could be totally assured that Ms Palin's Presidential prospects (if not her ambitions) had evaporated entirely. The notion of this woman representing me on the world stage is absolutely chilling.

Bankstreet I share your sentiment regarding Ms Palin.

And yet, one of the two major political parties tried to put this clueless, brainless twit one heart beat away from being in The White House, with only the health of a doddering old fart separating us from that reality. What next on their agenda, Rick Santorum (voted most likely to be popped in the face on the street by absolute strangers, who other-wise wouldn't harm a fly), being dished up to us as a viable candidate?

Littel why is it you can't simply point out the flaws people or ideas without resorting to ridicule and personal attacks? In this case I would have thought that to be so easy even you could do it.

Other then being the president of inane Tweets Sarah Palin has no chance of becoming president of any land mass and we have to thank her stupidity and cupidity for that blessed conclusion to her political forays.
