Verbatim


Watch CBS Videos Online

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 the other side, the land boundary that we have with, uh, Canada...It's funny that a comment like that was made to, kinda...cari...I dunno...reporters...you know...

Couric: Mocked?

Palin: Mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah...

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...

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

Palin: We have trade missions back and forth. It's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace 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 an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are there, they are right next to, uh, our state.

No, George, I'm not looking for silver-tongued oration, I'm looking for coherent thought. Jon Stewart already make much of Biden's bit of idiocy; the difference between Palin and Biden is that Biden actually knows a few things besides a mishmash of last-minute talking points, crammed into his head by a cadre of trainers.

Every human being looks like a nincompoop from time to time. Palin looks like a nincompoop ALL the time.

And that Obama video was a rare instance of him losing a rhetorical thread while making a point where the content was obvious and coherent.

Do you REALLY not see the difference?

Obama's inelegance may be unusual but not rare - there are other instances. As for Biden and

"Biden actually knows a few things besides a mishmash of last-minute talking points, crammed into his head by a cadre of trainers."

Well, I live in Chicago, It borders Mexico and Canada, I know more about foreign policy then I thought.

This is the brilliance we may have to put up with for 4 years.

I speak a little Spanish and having lived in Coney Island, have been connected by the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, which I assume, by it's name,connects to Mexico proper.
Don't you think I would make a good ambassador to that country?
