(Newser) – Sarah Palin is taking a razzing today for a verbal gaffe about North Korea.

“In fairness to Sarah Palin,” notes Mark Joyella at Mediaite, “she’s got a lot on her plate right now–a book tour, a reality show, and a daughter who landed in third place on Dancing with the Stars–so remembering arcane international details like which country has a lunatic dictator with nuclear weapons and which one has American troops can be difficult.” Click here for more.
