YOU MSM IDIOTS, SARAH PALIN DOES HAVE FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE.

In fact, Sarah Palin has more foreign policy executive experience than Joe Biden, John McCain, and Barack Obama combined. Among other things, Palin has negotiated an arrangement where by Alaska natural gas will be piped across the Canadian border and into the United States.
For MSM idiots who haven’t looked at a map, Alaska has an international border with Canada, and is next door neighbors with the Russian Empire, and shares a fishing region with Japan and South Korea. A governor of a state the size and location of Alaska necessarily has all sorts of contacts and negotiations with foreign governments. It’s part of what a governor of Alask does.
UPDATE: It looks like the idiot MSM are simply echoing the idiot Obama campaign:
“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero
foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
Maybe it’s just that Obama is so utterly lacking in executive experience at the local, state, and federal level and so ignorance of the functioning of a federal system that he doesn’t know what a governor does. Of maybe he’s just lying. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before. A very weak and amateurish response on Palin from the Obama campaign.
UPDATE II: I forgot to mention that Palin is commander of the Alaskan National Guard, an organization with troops currently in foreign countries out fighting America’s enemies.
Here are some pictures of Palin meeting with Alaskan guard troops in Kuwait:
And watch videos of Palin with Alaskan troops in Kuwait here. And here’s a clip of Palin engaging in a bit of training with the troops:
If you watch closely, you can see her lick her lip in anticipation of getting to fire the gun.
UPDATE: Jonah Goldberg posts an email giving more details on the national security role of the Alaskan National Guard and of an Alaskan governor.
