At the Democratic National Convention, John Kerry fired off one of the best one-liners of the entire event, saying, “Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching ‘Rocky IV.’” It was a good line, and accurate on both counts. That prompted this absurd response from the Divine Miss Palin:
“I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name,” Palin told Cavuto. “How does he even know my name? I mean, aren’t these guys supposed to be these bigwig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me?”
“Yeah, I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over, Alaska and I as the governor had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation,” she insisted.
So, it’s funny he would take a potshot like that. It’s funny he even knows my name.”
Love the word salad in the second (run on) sentence, but the last one? Really? She doesn’t think a senator would know the name of perhaps the most famous Republican in the entire country? That’s just bizarre.
