Charlie Gibson Doesn't Know What The Bush Doctrine Is, Either

I'm a little under the weather today so I'm not going to go into a lot of detail, but suffice it to say I find it a little amusing that Charlie Gibson can try a gotcha question on Sarah Palin when HE doesn't even have the correct answer.

The Bush Doctrine is not "preemption" - The Bush Doctrine, from the words of Ari Fleischer immediately following 9/11 is that (paraphrase) "Nations who harbor and support terrorists will be assumed by the United States as hostile".

How funny is it that the person asking the "gotcha" question, Gibson, doesn't even have the right answer.

What else, I wonder, will Charlie school her about when we see the interview in its entirety?

"Governor Palin, did you know the second amendment forbids prayer in public schools?"

"Governor Palin, did you know that Natural Gas is not a Fossil Fuel?" (h/t Nancy Pelosi)

"Madame Governor, did you know Alexander Haig was the rightful successor to the Presidency after Reagan was shot?"
