Palin speed-dates through head of state meetings

Posted on: September 24, 2008

Padding her resume before the presidential election in the United States, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin can now say she has met with heads of state- several in fact- as she speed-dated her way through quickie discussions with Afghan president Hamid Karzi, Columbian president Alviro Uribe, Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari and the president of Iraq, Jalal Talabani. Palin also met for 90 minutes with Dr. Henry KIssinger, who served as Secretary of State for the late president, Richard Nixon.

In a widely-watched television interview-much of it conducted more like a quiz- with Charles Gibson of ABC, Palin admitted to never having met a head of state.

Palin met the heads of state in New York as they gathered for the United Nations General Assembly. Link here to Newsday article.

American President George Bush addressed the UN assembly.There are a few versions of that story, of course. Here is the Toronto Star story.

Oh, what the heck. Link here to some political cartoons.
