Questions for Governor Palin:

You claim that you have foreign policy experience because you are the executive of a state that borders Canada and is close to Russia. Being such a great foreign policy expert, perhaps you can tell me which of the following people you may have had cause to meet during your tenure, and why. If you have not met these people, please provide a reason.

Roman Abramovich
Roman Jakobson
Roman Kopin
Vsevolod Abramovich
Danila Medvedev
Dmitri Medvedev
Dennis Fentie
Dennis Leary
Geraldine Van Bibber
Geraldine Halliwell
Gordon Campbell
Greg Campbell
Steven Point
Steven Soderbergh
Iona Campagnolo
Iona Nikitchenko

Do you recognize some of these names, Governor Palin? Do you know who these people are? I'll even give you a hint: Eight of the people listed above have served in the governments of your immediate neighbors during your brief tenure as governor. The rest are famous or infamous for other reasons, though one of those who served in your neighbors' governments is also infamous in his or her own right.

For extra credit, I have a list of place names. I'm not including British Columbia since even a child could get that one right.


Of these, which are the four closest to Alaska, and do any of them have a population greater than that of your state?

Given the difficulty you may experience answering this question, I must ask one question: What foreign policy experience do you bring to the table? What foreign officials have you met for more than a brief photo op? I'm not asking about heads of state and heads of government. I'm asking about your counterparts in Canada and Russia.

Give this some thought, and get back to me. I'll be here. In the meantime, CRANK THIS SHIT UP!

20 minutes later Sarah was seen playing a flute while firing a rifle at a moose that was minding it's own business.

The weather will be dumb and blustery followed by periods of blithering stupidity, you can read about it in all the paper and magazines, all of them.

I'm afraid you may be right. The good thing about McCain going for the character attacks is the opening this gives Obama to use the past of the senior (citizen) Senator from Arizona against him. Membership in the Keating Five versus a barely there relationship with a repentant former terrorist. I wonder which means more in these economic times.

I think her entire "foreign policy experience" consists of inviting Vladimir Putin over to shoot things and getting rejected. But ya know, she's an energy policy expert. ;-)

I'll post my answers tomorrow or later this week.

As for Governor Palin's foreign policy experience, I think you forgot about being hit on by Third World dictators at the UN.

That airplane that she didn't sell on E-Bay is being used to take hunters to Russia for very expensive hunting trips. Putin can just hitch a ride back if he wants.

Palin, bad for Alaska, bad for America.

No I'm not kidding.

I hear that with a good pair of binoculars you can see some details on the large Diomede Island in Russia from the small Diomede Island in the U.S. They are 3 km apart, near the middle of the Bering Strait. I don't imagine Sarah has ever visited the Diomedes. I wonder if she knows where they are...
