You are such a moron. No matter how it was worded, as an answer to Katie's question about Pain's foreign policy experience, it was laughable.
The transcript of that interview:

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

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.

COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.

PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia—

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

PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We — 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.

This might be interesting to some.

March 2008

Russia's resurgent military is again making sporadic, unannounced bomber runs toward Alaska's airspace, leading the Air Force to scramble jets to intercept and identify them, according to the commander of the Pacific Air Forces, Gen. Howie Chandler.

The most recent incident, involving two Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers, occurred Tuesday, Chandler said during a meeting with reporters at Elmendorf Air Force Base on Thursday. Since July, there have been 16 such incidents, according to the Air Force.

Notice the word "again" and sporadic bomber runs toward Alaska's airspace.

Gov. Sarah Palin was Alaska's governor in 2008 and the years prior.

Just for the record, I'm not defending Palin nor do I believe she was necessarilythe best choice for VP candidate in 2008.

But she was a popular governor in Alaska and took on the corruption in her own party in her own state and won.

I don't recall anyone in the liberal media being near as interested in Sen. Barack Obama's foreign policy experience as they obviously were with VP, Gov. Sarah Palin.

Neither do I recall Obama having led or governed anything before taking on the highest office in the land.

It's the hypocrisy that I'm pointing out - again.

Published by the Council of Foreign Affairs:

When Obama was sworn into office in January 2009, he had already developed an activist vision of his foreign policy destiny. He would refurbish the United States' image abroad, especially in the Muslim world; end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; offer an outstretched hand to Iran; "reset" relations with Russia as a step toward ridding the world of nuclear weapons; elicit Chinese cooperation on regional and global issues; and make peace in the Middle East.

His compromises have been interpreted as signs of weakness, and his inability to produce clean outcomes in short order taken as an indication of incompetence. His efforts to engage competing powers have seemed at times to come at the cost of ignoring traditional allies. Above all, his approach has caused some to question whether he has a strategy at all or merely responds to events.

His views on foreign policy reeked of inexperience and grandiose naivety. His elitist idealism blurred any connection with reality and was both overreaching and simplistic in its very content.

It still astonishes me how so many fellow Americans could be so easily swayed and misled. Considering he won once and then again twice, the phrase "dumbed down" is the only thing that comes to mind.

When Iran endorsed his candidacy, red flags should have gone up everywhere. It's actually quite astonishing no one on the left even blinked.

Palin was the antithesis to elitism.

She spoke too plainly, perhaps, but no VP candidate has ever gotten the same kind of scrutinty she did. She was thrown to the wolves and muzzled by the McCain campaign.

You wouldn't have wanted to be in her shoes. No one would have.

Could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure a lot of democrats wish they had voted for her instead in 2008. The Obama "Chicago style corruption" team ran her over like every other of Obama's opposition in his political career. The liberal media helped them.

Hillary was not the right person for the presidency either. But when you consider she was head and shoulders above Obama on any issue and level of experience, you can't help but wonder how Obama had a chance in Haiti of winning.
