Sarah Palin's proclivity for accidents rules out a Palin presidency.

I loved Dr. Strangelove; especially the cowboy bomber pilot, Major T.J. "King" Kong (Slim Pickens), and General Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott). If you've seen the movie, you may remember the scene in the war room, when The President asked the general about whether the plane that wasn't shot down or recalled would be able to drop a bomb. General Turgidson became ecstatic as he praised the major's abilites; he had no doubt that Major Kong would complete his mission. He did, and in one of the film's most memorable scenes rode the bomb down to its target. Later, the movie ended with a series of nuclear blasts set to Vera Lynn's song, "We'll Meet Again." It is a brilliant movie.

But it is a movie. In reality we have an incident with Sarah Palin that illustrates how she cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons. The NY Daily News reported:
Blame it on the Blackberry.

After being slammed for appearing to list a controversial tweet from Ann Coulter's as a "favorite" on her Twitter account, Sarah Palin defended herself Friday by saying she didn't even know how to tag Twitter posts.

On her account, Palin had appeared to list a Coulter tweet with a photograph of a sign outside of a church that said "The blood of Jesus against Obama history made 4 Nov 2008 a Taliban Muslim illegally elected president USA: Hussein."

Palin, however, said it was simply a case of technology mismanagement.

"I've never purposefully 'favorited' any Tweet," Palin wrote in an email to an ABC reporter on Friday. "I had to go back to my BlackBerry to even see if such a function was possible."

And even if she did know how to tag a favorite tweet, she said she had been traveling that day anyway.

"I was traveling to Alaska that day ... it was an obvious accidental 'favoriting,'" she argued.

She is attributing her "mistake" to "technology mismanagement." It was an "accident."

Do you want Sarah Palin's thumb on the nuclear button?

How does she explain the other "accidental" favorites that were also there and were months older?

Did any ot the media check to see if she was actually flying back to Alaska that day? This proves she will lie about anything. "I didn't know that was the button that bombed Iran, I thought it was the tv remote"

What a lame excuse!
The Twitter Quitter Queen has been twittering us since she lost the VP. 2 whole years!
But before she was even chosen as VP, look at the pictures of Palin as Gov. That Blackberry was glued to her hand.
So for 2 years she was not curious about her Blackberry and it's features?

We don't need a President that makes 'mistakes' around technology nor one that has no curiosity about why or how things work.

It appears she says "Wasn't me! I was traveling (my ghost-tweeters man the twittery thing when I travel, silly! )"
