Jeff Koopersmith looks at the McCain scam-paign's laughable attempt to make Sarah Palin look like a credible candidate.
October 2, 2008, 2008 – Geneva (apj.us) – American readers may not be aware of it, but the rest of the palnet is still guffawing over last week's McCain campaign stunt in which the hapless Sarah Palin, like a trained poodle, was strutted before some world leaders in a feeble-minded and bogus attempt to make her look sophisticated to the American voter.
I found is amusing that the first celebrity she met with was the leader of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai – who is also known as President Bush's "direct connection" (can you say, "Strawberry-colored poppy fields forever"?).
Naturally, reporters were not allowed to get near Palin and her world leader meetings. Just a snapshot was all that was allowed. Good thinking on the part of the neo-Nazis running McCain's campaign. They still believe the Big Lie works even though the Biggest Lie is just about to leave the White House as the most humiliated and humiliating President in history – of any nation.
But our spies got some of the Palin-Karzai conversation on tape, as you can see from our magazine cover.
Now that's what I call world-class diplomacy.
