I’m sorry — Sarah Palin is a bad joke

September 25, 2008

In her interview with Katie Couric to be aired tonight on CBS, Sarah Palin complains that she should not have been mocked for claiming that Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives her insight into foreign policy.

So Couric gently asks Palin to explain again how proximity enhances her foreign policy credentials. Here’s the exchange, verbatim:

PALIN: “It certainly does, because our next-door neighbors are foreign countries there in the state that I am the executive of….”

COURIC: “Have you ever been involved in negotiations, for example, with the Russians?”

PALIN: “We have trade missions back and forth. We do. It’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska, it’s just right over the border. It’s from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right there next to our state.” (TRANSCRIPT CORRECTED AS OF 4:46)

And so they are.

Palin is living, breathing proof that John McCain lies when he claims to put this country first over politics. She makes Dan Quayle look like Albert Einstein with a better haircut.

Here’s the clip. Go horrify yourself. Seeing it is worse than reading it.

    NEWSWIRE–A CNN host says the McCain campaign’s decision to shield Sarah Palin from the media is sexist.

    “She’s a bird of a whole different feather,” they whoop,
    “With her plumage and pluck, we’ll prevail.”
    Yet the vultures and hawks and the doves in the coop
    Have her pigeonholed more as a Quayle.

    At least she has nothing to worry about if she and John lose. With the sea actually touching Alaska’s shores, her qualifications as an Oceanographer cannot be questioned. I wish her well in her next career.

    Actually, she’s more cunning than you realize. Since her “energy policy” basically involves powering our way through the earth’s fossil fuels until the ice caps melt, the Bering Sea is going to get a whole lot wider. That will make the Russians think twice about invading Alaska. It’s genius really.

    Stop giving the little woman a hard maritime.
