Palin never implied that because she could "See" Russia, that gave her some special experience. She's Gov'rn of a state within site of Russia, basically she was saying "DUH" to the idiot reporter. OF COURSE she has experience with interacting with Russia (and Canada). Maybe not hanging out with their Prime Minister... what Gov'rn does, but she does have active experience in dealing with foriegn countries.
People like you needed that sort of in depth answer, cause your obviously to incapable of making that assessment on your own, and instead will wait for the Media to TELL YOU HOW TO THINK!
