    I can see the moon from my house. Does that make me an astronaut?

    Gee, I don't know...do you share fishing waters with, a mixed population with, and sit on top of a nuclear arsenal pointed at the moon?

    No? Didn't think so...now would you care to make a point or are we just trading smart-assed quips as sorry excuses for half assed arguments?

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...
    Then she should have said THAT, instead of saying that 'seeing russia' made her qualified and gave her insight and experience.

    There are those who will not even acknowledge that she WAS governor, and refer to her as the "mayor of Wasilla."

    Uh huh. So if you ask me about my experience with Mexico and I tell you that I have a great deal of experience with Mexico, after all... I lived in San Diego and could easily see Mexican land. From that you would be able to infer exactly what my experience WAS with Mexico? And if you couldn't read my mind, then you'd be the idiot?

    SHE DID. SHe said a LOT about Russia other than the rather selective sound bite.

    In a period where everyone's getting their panties in a bunch about a selectively-edited video, maybe everyone should also take a look to see if maybe, just maybe, that Russia quip might have been taken out of context, too.

    Being able to see Russia from places in Alaska does not give her insight into Russian foreign policy, nor does it give her experience dealing with foreign heads of state. And when she was asked about those things, she answered that she could see Russia from places in Alaska. ****ing seriously?

    I'd deduce that you spent a lot of time at them donkey shows in TJ, and that you would know where to score the Valium from the pharmacias if I came to visit...
