George,

By this point, I'm pretty sure the misspelling is on purpose.

I believe it's in reference to Olof Palme, the late Prime Minister of Sweden.

Palme, an admirer of the PLO and Castro, was active in African politics, and was also a UN special envoy between '80 - '82, attempting to end the Iraq/Iran war.
Palme also served as the chair of a nuclear disarmament group, the Palme Commission, which issued a report entitled Common Security in '82.
Among other things, the report argued that it can never be possible to unilaterally achieve security based on superior military resources, and due to the destructive capabilities of nuclear weapons, attempted military supremacy is a threat to universal security.

Although understandably nervous about getting blown up by someone else's nuclear fight, it seems clear that Olof Palme was wrong about every important issue since WWII.

Doesn't it appear that the enemy strategy to elect Kerry is to advertise their nuclear capabilities and make Americans fear a nuclear war if Bush is re-elected? The North Korean explosion & these announcements hardly seem coincidental.
