A Few Things Ill Considered

It doesn’t stop

As if this and this weren’t enough, below we have McCain himself applying the “Palin lives near Russia” litmus test for foreign policy experience.

Around minute 2:30:

GIBSON: Can you honestly say you feel confident having someone who hasn’t traveled outside the United States until last year, dealing with an insurgent Russia, with an Iran with nuclear ambitions, with an unstable Pakistan, not to mention the war on terror?

MCCAIN: Sure. And one of the key elements of America’s national security requirements are energy. She understands the energy issues better than anybody I know in Washington, D.C., and she understands. Alaska is right next to Russia. She understands that.

[emphasis added]

Great! She understands that Alaska is close to Russia…then again, that is probably alot better than most Americans can do, maybe she is Presidential material after all.

But let’s forget Sarah Palin, what does it say about John McCain that this is his VP pick? (That was a rhetorical question, BTW)

    I can’t wait ’till we’re told she’s an expert on global warming because Alaska is warming faster than any other state in the Union.

    I’m an expert on the U.S. economy b/c I live right next to Fort Knox.
