    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.
    I watched the interview when it aired and I've read the transcript since then.

    Yes I know, I once saw Canada from New York. I have foreign policy experience too.

    From that, I would infer that you probably know mexican cuisine very well, you probably picked up some of the language, you had some familiarity with the geography at least along the border, had some contact with their local customs and the way they do business, and probably some fair degree of exposure to their art and culture.

    See how stopping to think beyond the soundbyte works? I'm really not asking a lot here...

    And what else did she say? What else did she in other venues?

    And your comparison is completely invalid. You were never the ****ing GOVERNOR of New York, now were you?

    Have you read what Jallman said? Being the governor of Alaska gives her foreign policy experience in regards to fishing and other things. Being a governor of a state, one would not expect them to have much experience with international issues. However, border states and Alaska do deal with foreign nations. Out of all governors, Palin has probably had more foreign policy experience than other governors. What experience did Obama have with foreign policy being a new senator? None.

    Honestly, I can't believe we are talking about Palin in this thread.

    How do you know? Do I actually need to dumb down my experience for you and tell you what it all is when asked? I SAW Canada and I was in NY. If I give you too much specific information, I'd be dumbing it down too much for you.

    She made a speech at a public event.

    She's a public figure.

    I think your actual job title would be relevant information. But you go ahead and dig your heels in, little sister. You're only doing yourself a disservice with this exposure of your refusal to be honest.
