    Default U.S. troops in Iraq will face another hardship, a visit from Sarah Palin

    (CNN) Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will head overseas to visit troops serving in the National Guard, her office said Wednesday.
    On Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, the Alaska governor tweeted that she had received permission to see the troops. "Travel now to bring appreciation from their Alaska family & Natl Guard leadership to heroes in US European Command's area of responsibility," she wrote Wednesday in shorthand that is often used on the social networking Web site Twitter.
    The governor's office said the Defense Department had asked that further details of her trip not be released yet, for security reasons.
    Two years ago, Palin visited Alaska National Guard troops in Kuwait and wounded soldiers on a U.S. base in Germany, as well as a border crossing on the Kuwait-Iraq border.
    Palin's son Track, who serves in the Army, deployed to Iraq last year.

    Twitter is a much better way for Palin to announce an overseas trip, rather than a simple press release.

    That Twitter made absolutely no sense, even for Twitter. Idiot.

    Jesus, I thought the objective was to keep the morale of the troops UP, not devastate them.

    Now they will have to get more hazardous duty pay. Only fair.
