Palin Ireland Trip Lie

One of the things a Republican Vice President must be able to do is just make crap up on the fly. Somebody needs to tell Governor Palin that she needs to follow the Dick Cheney playbook a little closer so that the lie actually lives for longer than a week.

Great quotes and lies of the current Vice President such as “The Iraqi people will welcome us as liberators.” That one was a classic and then there is the one on outing a CIA agent with this little white lie, “Scooter Libby did it!”

Palin lied about visiting Ireland as part of her foreign policy experience
John Aravosis (DC) · 9/02/2008 02:21:00 PM ET

She didn't visit Ireland, which is what the McCain-Palin campaign claimed to Politico's Ben Smith on Saturday. She had a short refueling stopover, which means at best her extensive Irish diplomacy amounted to buying a sweater and a beer mug in the Shannon airport.

Why does Sarah Palin's duty-free-diplomacy matter? Because John McCain, who is 72 and has had 4 bouts of cancer, just picked Sarah Palin to replace him as commander in chief should he die or be incapacitated in office. Sarah Palin, in an effort to bolster her non-existent national security expertise, claimed she had visited 3 countries: Germany; Kuwait; and Ireland…

I could not make this stuff up if I wanted to. Sarah Palin is a walking time bomb for Republican’s with this latest lie. One has to give her credit for being deceitful in trying to fill Dick Cheney’s shoes but she does need to crank up the creativity of the lies. For one thing, a fuel stop in Shannon Ireland does not constitute visiting Ireland. Furthermore, it does not even count as any amount of foreign policy experience. Governor Palin should just leave all the diplomatic talk and any discussion on foreign policy for her boss that has a tad bit more experience on actually truly visiting and interacting with foreign leaders.
