Foreign Policy - Coles Notes Version

What's this, the GOP version of "Take Your Kid To Work Day"??:
"Governor Palin may attend next week's U.N. General Assembly, where she would be able to meet with many of the foreign heads of state gathering in New York on Tuesday, according to a source close to the McCain presidential campaign. The Wall Street Journal's Web site quoted a campaign strategist as saying that next week's gathering would give Mrs. Palin "some exposure and experience with foreign leaders," adding: "It's a great idea.""

As one of the commenters said,

"Then after she goes to the UN for an hour to “meet foreign leaders” and establish her security/foreign policy credentials, McCain will take her to a hospital, so she can establish her “health care” credentials; then they will go out in the street and meet a whole bunch of African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians to check off the “diversity” credentials; then they can ride the subway for one stop to clarify her “infrastructure” credentials; and then, finally, she can use her ATM card at a bank branch down on Wall Street so she can demonstrate her expertise on the financial markets.

God, I swear you can’t make this up."
