Sarah Palin At The UN With Bono
From ABC News:
Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's coming out party on the world stage kicks off tomorrow with a series of meetings with the types of foreign leaders she would regularly interact with as vice president, ABC News' Imtiyaz Delawala reports.
Palin sits down with foreign leaders (and one rock star) in New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly... On Palin's Tuesday schedule: Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, as well as former US Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger… Palin will meet with Iraq President Jalal Talabani and Pakistan's newly-elected President Asif Ali Zardari.
Please, I can see the whole mess in my head. Henry Kissinger will cut in line ahead of Iraq’s president, Jalal Talabani, so that he can graze the side of Palin’s arm with his potbelly for an old man thrill. Meanwhile, Palin – a child of the 80’s – will ignore Henry’s advances to see Bono and feel like the coolest chick (in the history of ever) from Wasilla High School.
Palin might be a fundie whacko, and maybe Wasilla didn’t have cable in the 80’s, but it’s not like she lived under a rock. FYI Henry, and ew!
Bono: ‘Allo, govnah. I’m here to talk about starvin’ children.
Sarah P: Oh my gahd! I totally played “I Will Follow”, like, 800 times.
(UPDATE: Palin bans reporters from meetings with leaders.)
