Palin Interview

Sarah Palin had her first major news interview with CBS’s Katie Couric, on Thursday (September 25). (CBS interview/transcripts online, on their website CBS Evening News

Couric: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?

Sarah Palin: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land-boundary that we have with Canada. It’s funny that a comment like that was kinda made to … I don’t know, you know … reporters.

Couric: Mocked?

Palin: Yeah, mocked, I guess that’s the word, yeah.

Couric: Well, explain to me why that enhances your foreign-policy credentials.

Palin: Well, it certainly does, because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of. And there…

Couric: Have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

Palin: We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.


I would like to talk with Mitt Romney. And Bobby Jindal. On second thought, I’d better not. That would be sexist. The two of them were not McCain’s vice presidential pick because their states — Romney, Massachusetts (apparently Michigan would have been better, even Utah) and Jindal, Louisiana — are too far from Russia. And I doubt the leader of Pakistan would call either of them ”even more gorgeous” than he’d expected! So there. I think Senator McCain made a wise choice. I can already see Palin putting Biden in his place (what does HE know about foreign policy, anyway?) at the upcoming debates. Biden should really start studying. Now! One mistake and Putin could come charging across Alaska’s very narrow maritime border!
