    Regardless, Sarah Palin would have had more foreign policy experience than Barack Obama being an unexperienced senator And yes, you can see Russia from Alaska, the Diomede Islands (one Russia, one Alaska) are right next to each other and can be seen from each other. Regardless, the media tried to take a statement, misquote it, and then spin it with dishonesty to make Palin look stupid.

    If she actually worked with Russian foreign head's of state and has some insight into the the country's foreign policies via "fishing boats", then perhaps THAT is what she should have explained instead of saying "We can see russia from Alaska" and that makes her qualified.

    If by 'media' you mean SNL, then yes. They did reframe quote. But the original is no less stupid.

    You can see Russia from Alaskan land...the two diamond isles come to mind immediately.

    And if some gov of AZ said they were qualified to deal with Mexican head's of state and had insight into their foreign policy simply because they could see Mexico from places in AZ, I would think they were just as ****ing retarded as I think Palin is.

    That's not the point. I don't care if you can or not. (and I know that you CAN) But that's not the point. Does seeing Russian landmass from those vantage points give you some insight into Russian foreign policy and experience dealing with Russian head's of state? No? Exactly.

    Actually, it does involve the governor in negotiations of fishing waters, security plans for the heavy nuclear arsenal stationed there, and dealing with the heavy military population there.

    Also, there's a huge amount of travel back and forth between Alaska and Russia, just as there is with Canada. If you ever go down Ninilchuk way, you see the influence of that and how whole sections of the arm are practically Russia themselves. Surely you aren't so daft as to believe the Governor of the state bordering our cold war nemesis isn't at least briefed on how to handle foreign policy issues with them...

    Just to make the point: I do not like Palin. Not going to. However, you do not get to where she is by being stupid. She may not be as smart as most in politics, in the arena of politics, but to say she is stupid is I think overstating things by a lot.

    This ends the discussion on Palin. I would like to thank you all for participating.
