Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ignited some buzz on the Internet Thursday by using a Nazi reference to take a jab at the Obama administration.
"They say you can't kill your way out of war?" Palin asked, referring to a comment made earlier this month by State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf.
"Tell that to the Nazis," Palin continued. "Oh wait, you can't, they're dead - we killed them."
Palin, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, received a loud round of applause for the comment. The remark also immediately sparked buzz on the Internet, with a mix of reaction.
