WASHINGTON (AP) — Sarah Palin is drawing criticism from around the world after declaring that the United States has to stand with "our North Korean allies."

Palin's gaffe, made Wednesday during an interview on Glenn Beck's syndicated radio show, was quickly corrected by her host. But it drew immediate fire from liberal bloggers, who cited it as an example of the 2008 vice presidential candidate's lack of foreign policy expertise.

Newspapers in Asia and Europe are repeating the criticism. The Times of India says Palin "did it again," while London's Daily Mail says she "may want to brush up on her geography."

The conservative U.S. website The Weekly Standard came to Palin's defense, pointing out that "she correctly identified North Korea as our enemy literally eight seconds before the mix-up."

I was shocked I tell you shocked! when I heard this.  Word of Mrs. Palin's gaffe has gone out to all 57 states in this great union and the people are just shocked.
I called up a friend of mine who just moved here from Vienna and although I don't speak Austrian very well I was able to get across to him what had happened and he was so shocked that he had to take a hit off of his breathalyzing inhalator.  He was in such distress that I was tempted to summon a corpse-man to attend to him.

Perhaps Governor Palin should take a lesson from our historic president and take a teleprompter with her everywhere she goes.
