(Newser) – Sarah Palin is taking a razzing today for a verbal gaffe about North Korea. She told Glenn Beck on his radio show that we must “stand with our North Korean allies” before he corrected her. “This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policies,” she said of the Korean situation. “But obviously, got to stand with our North Korean allies.”

“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.
