CBS News’ Scott Conroy reports:

(PHILADELPHIA) Sarah Palin told a customer at a Philadelphia restaurant on Saturday that the United States should “absolutely” launch cross-border attacks from Afghanistan into Pakistan in the event that it becomes necessary to “stop the terrorists from coming any further in,” a comment similar to the one John McCain condemned Barack Obama for making during last night’s presidential debate.

Normally we’ve seen Sarah Palin either engages in gaffes where she says something that doesn’t make sense or else we’ve seen her say stuff that isn’t true. Now, though, she’s entered into the realm of the Kinsley gaffe where she’s just not well-briefed enough to remember the McCain campaign’s convoluted talking points on this issue. Instead, she went with the common sense position — Obama’s position.
