Speaking of being full of ish, Palin and the cheesesteak
As reported in an earlier post, Palin visited our fair city in order to take away some of the media attention from the Obama rally going on in the Southwest part of the city. She messed up by answering questions when she went to grab a cheese steak for a photo op.
I will only give you the important part here…
Palin added that she is ready to debate Joe Biden next Thursday in St. Louis.
“I am,” she said. “Look forward to it. Look forward to getting to speak to Americans through that debate, absolutely.”
The governor got a more serious interrogation moments later when Temple graduate student Michael Rovito approached her to inquire about Pakistan.
“How about the Pakistan situation?,” asked Rovito, who said he was not a Palin supporter. “What’s your thoughts about that?”
“In Pakistan?,” she asked, looking surprised.
“What’s going on over there, like Waziristan?”
“It’s working with [Pakistani president] Zardari to make sure that we’re all working together to stop the guys from coming in over the border,” she told him. “And we’ll go from there.”
Rovito wasn’t finished. “Waziristan is blowing up!,” he said.
“Yeah it is,” Palin said, “and the economy there is blowing up too.”
“So we do cross border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan you think?,” Rovito asked.
“If that’s what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should,” Palin responded, before moving on to greet other voters.
