I told my wife, “Obama should make me his White House photographer. Then I could take pictures and tell him how to run the country.”

Sarah Palin: ‘We’re bombing Syria … and I’m the idiot?’
In a Facebook post titled “Let Allah Sort It Out,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin condemned President Obama’s decision to get further involved with the ongoing civil war in Syria.
“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” Mrs. Palin asked on Friday. “President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels.

“Our Nobel Peace Prize winning President needs to seek Congressional approval before taking us to war,” she added.
