    Greg Mitchell: Cindy McCain on ABC Today: Palin Has National Security Experience Because Alaska Is Close To Russia

    So....
    So she's an expert on Russia because she's close geographically to it?

    ...WOW.

    :eek:

    OK so Doucy and Cindy McCain both have said it. Therefore I can guess that this is a talking point. So some genius in the McCain campaign decided that her state being close to Russia was good foreign policy experience. That's a little frightening.

    Lol... at first I was thinking "Come on guys, she has to be joking."

    But then I watched the video.

    That was pretty bad...

    Good thing Cindy isn't running. ;)

    I fail to see how this is even newsworthy.

    Jon Stewart poked fun at the Alaska-Russia thing too (1:40 onwards, although the whole segment is pretty hilarious :D)

    I think I heard of it, I believe it's called "Who wants to be a tax-free millionaire?"
