Sarah Palin’s foreign policy knowledge gained through osmosis.

September 25, 2008 | By | 6 Replies More

I sleep with a lot of books near my bed so that I can learn by osmosis, I joke.  Now, check out this surreal statement by Sarah Palin on why Alaska’s proximity to Russian and Canada bolsters her foreign policy credentials.

And notice another reference to the impending attack on the U.S. by Russia.   Such bull in a china shop diplomacy!

    How much did Caribou Barbie's outfit cost for this interview? She has a host of makeup, clothing, and image consultants which prepare her packaging for every RARE appearance before the press, where she gets "her deference!"

    I'll bet these guys have spent over $200,000.00 on her outfits and consultants. That's more than 4X the median income for a US family over the past year. OH, YEAH, Caribou Barbie is like us!

    Caribou Barbie has probably spent over $200,000.00 for her wardrobe, makeup and image consultants since she was nominated for Veep.

    That's 4X the median income for US families for the past year!

    I live in the mountains, at a relatively high altitude, closer to God than most of you.

    I will let you know in advance (by posting here, I promise) if he is about to attack or is ordering up another flood, or epidemic, or some such.

    At Salon.com, Glenn Greenwald has written this post, which he entitles "Correction on Sarah Palin:

    Sarah Palin's performance in the tiny vignettes of unscripted dialogue in which we've been allowed to see her has been nothing short of frightening — really, as I said, pity-inducing. And I say that as someone who has thought from the start that the criticisms of her abilities — as opposed to her ideology — were much too extreme. One of two things is absolutely clear at this point: she is either (a) completely ignorant about the most basic political issues — a vacant, ill-informed, incurious know-nothing, or (b) aggressively concealing her actual beliefs about these matters because she's petrified of deviating from the simple-minded campaign talking points she's been fed and/or because her actual beliefs are so politically unpalatable, even when taking into account the right-wing extremism that is permitted, even rewarded, in our mainstream. I'm not really sure which is worse, but it doesn't really matter, because with 40 days left before the election, both options are heinous.

    Huh?: I live in Missouri, which next to Kansas, which is next to Colorado, which is where some mountains are located. I will keep a close lookout too.

    I didn't see that entire interview, but that is absolutely horrible! I can't accept somebody like this as my VP.
