Sarah Palin doesn't know what the "Bush Doctrine" is

Don't know much about the economy
Don't know much foreign policy
But I do know how to gut a moose
So if you decide to vote for me
What a wonderful world this could be



Of course, Charlie Gibson doesn't articulate the Bush Doctrine very well. A preemptive strike against an imminent attack is legitimate self-defense. The Bush Doctrine radically extends the justification for preemption from an imminent attack to the mere capability to attack at some unspecified future time. But then, A) Gibson isn't running for Vice President and B) he's at least in the ballpark.
