Sarah Palin’s Foreign Policy Cred


SARAH PALIN’S FOREIGN POLICY CRED….Interested in learning about Sarah Palin’s real foreign policy experience? David Corn has her official calendar for 2007-08 and spills the beans. Bottom line: she’s spent an average of 37 minutes per month on foreign-ish activity during her tenure as governor. There were no meetings with Russian officials of any kind, but her schedule did include 30 minutes at a reception held by the Italian embassy, a meeting with foreign exchange students, and a speech at the Eighth Conference of Arctic Parliamentarians. Plus several miscellaneous meetings with Canadians. Exciting stuff!
