Maureen Dowd Today

Good column from Maureen Dowd this morning: "The really scary part of the Palin interview was how much she seemed like W. in 2000, and not just the way she pronounced nu-cue-lar. She had the same flimsy but tenacious adeptness at saying nothing, the same generalities and platitudes, the same restrained resentment at being pressed to be specific, as though specific is the province of silly eggheads, not people who clear brush at the ranch or shoot moose on the tundra."

Mexico. It's right there. Or, maybe a little to the left. Anyway it's near by.

Dowd continues, "Asked by Charlie Gibson what insight into Russian actions her Alaskan proximity gave her, Sarah blithely replied: “They’re our next-door neighbors. And you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.”

Wow. Sometimes I can actually see Mexico from Arizona. Sometimes when I'm in Buffalo, N.Y., I can actually see Canada. I have so much international-viewing experience, and am so ready to lead this nation.
