Apparently, during an interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin made a mockery of herself as a vice presidential candidate, as a governor of the state of Alaska, and as a woman. I have a video (below the fold) of part of this interview with Katie, along with the transcripts of part of that interview where Sarah describes her foreign policy experience.
Hey Sarah, what do Alaska and Russia trade? Polar Bears??
There is NO WAY this moron is qualified to do anything at all. I have potted plants that are smarter than Palin! Is it possible that there are still are sentient beings in this country who consider Palin to be a serious candidate for any elected office, including dog catcher? [7:54].
COURIC: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land, uh, boundary that we have, uh, with Canada. It, it .. it’s funny that a comment like that was .. kind of made to .. cari .. mm .. I don’t know, you know? Reporters ..
PALIN: Yeah, ‘mocked’, I guess that’s the word. Yeah.
COURIC: Well, explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.
PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our .. our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They’re in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia ..
COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We .. we do. It’s very important when, when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and .. and, uh .. comes into th, the air space of the United States of America, where .. where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is .. from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on thisss .. very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to, um, to our state.
