I'm Sarah Palin?

Dammit - who put a question mark on the teleprompter. How many times do I have to tell you, whatever is on that teleprompter, Palin will read!!

"Our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country," Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

But then, with the prompter turned off...

But then yesterday to a smaller audience of reporters she said, "I know Obama loves America. I'm sure that is why he's running for president. It's because he wants to do what he believes is in the best interest of this great nation. I believe that our ticket can do a better job for America. But I don't question at all Barack Obama's love for this great country."

It is the same with her "small town America" speeches, to wit:

"We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation," she said this week in North Carolina. "This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans. Those who are running our factories and teaching our kids and growing our food and are fighting our wars for us. Those who are protecting us in uniform. Those who are protecting the virtues of freedom."

However, when put to her proof (ie: no teleprompter) of why some areas of the country are more "pro-America" or "real America" than others, she brain-farted:

"Every area, every area across this great country where we're stopping and where also the other ticket is stopping and getting to speak at these rallies and speak with the good Americans, it's all pro-America," Palin said. "I was just reinforcing the fact that there, where I was, there's good patriotic people there in these rallies, so excited about positive change and reform of government that's coming that they are so appreciative of hearing our message, hearing our plan."

You betcha. Palin. So hot right now. Palin.

Real love of country is knowing the United States can be the greatest force for good in the world if we face the reality of its imperfections.

Dangerous love of country is believing the United States is the greatest force of good in the world while we turn a blind eye and let the reality of its imperfections consume it.

We are nation founded upon dissent and resisting tyranny. It is not enough to chant "USA" and let the tanks roll by.
