Now that-Failed 2008 Vice Presidential Candidate- 2012 Presidential hopefulAlaskan Governor Sarah Palin has addressed the ever-so important gubernatorial issue of smacking down the teenage father of her grandson in public, it’s nice to see her relax a bit.

Take on a lighter topic, one which certainly she has been extremely up-front and vocal about in the past, time and again:

Alaska’s need for protection from a North Korean missile strike.


(CNN) – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s office reacted Monday to North Korea’s missile test with a statement that “reaffirmed Alaska’s commitment to protecting America from rogue nation missile attacks.”

“I am deeply concerned with North Korea’s development and testing program which has clear potential of impacting Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States, with a potentially nuclear armed warhead,” she said in the statement. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we continue to develop and perfect the global missile defense network. Alaska’s strategic location and the system in place here have proven invaluable in defending the nation….

“Our early opposition to reduced funding for the Missile Defense Agency is proving to be well-founded during this turbulent time. I continue to support the development and implementation of a defensive missile shield based in Alaska. We are strategically placed to defend the critical assets of the United States and our allies in the Pacific Theater.”

The statement also stressed Palin’s request for stimulus funds for a commercial rocket launch facility owned and operated by a public corporation of the state of Alaska.

But… but… I thought Sarah despised earmarks and stimulus packages! Among other responses that will come from this latest opportunistic headline grab news from Anchorage…

More below.Wow.

Well, it’s not as if the Governor hasn’t been pounding the “Protection From Future Korean Missile Strikes” drum often enough; certainly it was one of her major concerns during her failed bid as Veep.

What? You don’t remember that either?

Strangely enough, this is as close to discussing any foreign concerns “in the Pacific Theater” as Governor Palin has gotten:

Gee. Nothing at all? No previous statements, even on the very well publicized campaign trail last year? Hmmm.

Even checking “Teh Google” for any cross reference of Mrs. Palin and North Korea yields only this one official statement from the Governor. The New World Order folks must have hit and erased it all…

Well, that’s alright- maybe Tyra Banks, the high water mark of hard-hitting journalism, can invite the Governor and President Obama to sit on the sofa and work through this together…

Is it any wonder her own party has thrown her under the “Straight Talk Express” and peeled rubber to get away from her?
