Sarah Palin Meets Foreign Chiefs Who Might Not Be Around Tomorrow

by | 23rd, September 2008

SARAH Palin can see Russia. She very possibly has a snow globe of Iceland (how she hates those bastards), a big book all about Olde Englande and collects brochures for package tours to all far-flung corners of the Med.

She’s meeting with foreigners, who have leaders, or chiefs, as they are known.

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, initially barred reporters from her first meetings with world leaders Tuesday, but reversed course after they protested…

Best order more biscuits…

At first, campaign aides told the TV producer, print and news agency reporters in the press pool that followed the Alaska governor that they would not be admitted along with still photographers and a video camera crew taken in to photograph her meetings with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, who are here for the United Nations General Assembly this week. She also was to meet later with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger…

Yeah, good to practice on the lesser cheifs, the leaders who may not be here or even alive tomorrow. Had Gordon Brown not been so busy at Labour conference, he might have got a call.

According to the CNN producer who was let into Karzai’s hotel suite with the photographers just before noon, Karzai was talking about his son. Palin was nodding, and asked what his name is. Karzai replied his name was Mirwais and explained that it means light of the house.

Like Osram.

The media were escorted out after about 40 seconds.

Which is long time – possibly a lifetime – in Afghani politics…
