The Foreign Policy Education Of Sarah Palin (In One Okay, More Than One Photo-Op)
So, I was sort of live-blogging the newswire stream of SP’s morning at the U.N.
Steve Schmidt, you’re so clever….
You see, Henry is that good that just one photo op sit-down can make anyone competent in foreign policy. Especially any unreasonably confident person.
“So, you got it, right?” Now, jump in that limo and bring on Uribe, Karzai, that heavy-set dude from Iraq! (What was it? Talaban, Taliban, Talibani …Something like that.)
Update 1 (… as long as these links hold out)
Update 2 (12pm PST)
Passing on the cookies, Sarah builds cred by deferring in the fashion department.
Update 3 (12:12 pm PST)
In the meantime, here’s a nice shot of the temperate rally SP was dis-invited from yesterday.
Update 4 (12:15 pm PST)
I’m just wondering, though, if Schmidt/Palin can come up with anything half as good as last year’s power snub.
… Okay, I’m going, I’m going. I’ll be back in about an hour.
Update 5 (1:13 pm PST)
I’m back. (Let’s not talk about the 405.)
Turns out, there was a big dust up this AM when Team Palin tried to completely bar reporters from the circus. According to the official language: “The decision was made for this to be a photo spray with still cameras and video cameras only.” At this point, hard to see the difference. Here’s the CBS write-up with a fun video. The click-click-click was never so loud.
By the way, you call that a handshake?
Update 6 (1:20 pm PST)
Back! Back! (And wow, even caught Old Glory!)
Update 7 (1:26 pm PST)
Very nice. That must be the reverse angle.
Update 8 (1:34 pm PST)
Turns out Saakashvili and Yuschenko are tomorrow with Mac. Palin also goes solo with Talabani, Ali Zardari and Singh. … There goes my day job. But seriously, I hope she doesn’t stare at Yuschenko’s face. (Laura didn’t.) (I’m sure they’ll make sure to tell her, however, the Russians did it.)
Update 9 (1:41 pm PST)
Oh, I thought they were meeting at Henry’s apartment.
Update 10 (1:55 pm PST)
Update 11 (1:59 pm PST)
They really put this on the wire?
Update 12 (2:01pm PST)
Update 13 (2:05)
O.K., ’nuff said.
