Sarah Palin's most recent blunder came when she accidentally announced her support for North Korea.
The former running mate of John McCain, made the remarks in a recent interview with conservative pundit Glenn Beck.
When Palin was asked how she would handle the Korean conflict as a prospective president she responded: “Well, North Korea… this is stemming from, I think, a greater problem when we’re all sitting around asking, ‘Oh no, what are we going to do’, and we’re not having a lot of faith that the White House isn’t going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea’s going to do.
“So it speaks to a bigger picture here, and it certainly scares me in terms of national security policy.
“Obviously, we’ve gotta stand with our North Korean allies – we’re bound to, by treaty…
Beck, moved in to correct the former Alaskan governor by saying “South Korea” to which she simply replied “yeah” and continued : “Yeah, and we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies.
“And, in order to… remind North Korea we’re not gonna reward bad behavior and we’re not gonna walk away. And we do need to press China to do more to increase pressure on North Korea.”
Palin, was doing the media circuit to publicize her new book “America by Heart” which hit the book shelves earlier this week.
