(CNN) – She's visiting troops on a peacekeeping mission, but Sarah Palin signaled Friday she's ready to go to battle with John Kerry, who reportedly made a joke earlier this week at her expense.
The Boston Herald reported that on Wednesday, before South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's exact whereabouts were widely known, the Massachusetts senator mused to reporters the wrong elected official had dropped out of sight.
"Too bad if a governor had to go missing it couldn't have been the governor of Alaska," he said, according to the paper. "You know, Sarah Palin."
Palin herself, speaking to U.S. troops in Kosovo, responded Friday with a shot aimed straight for the face - literally.
"Then Sen. John Kerry makes this joke, I don't know if you saw this, but he makes this joke saying, 'Aw shoot, of all the governors in the nation who disappeared, too bad it couldn't have been that governor from Alaska...'" she said.
"But the way he said it, he looked quite frustrated, and he looked so sad, and I just wanted to reach out to the TV and say, 'John Kerry, why the long face?'"
Palin is overseas visiting Alaska National Guard troops on a peacekeeping mission.
She's a fool. Get out of the media already! Horrible....
Awww Sarah, nothing in depth to say, but to respond to other ppl's jokes and fighting with Levi? Why is it that all you're capable of is tabloid displays of victim hood?
We the members of The Long Faced Peoples of America take issue with Sarah Palin's blatant and malicious attack on one of our most revered members! How dare you!! Making fun of John Kerry just becuase he is mandibly enhanced....how low and reprehensible!
She is the Dems best chance of keeping the White House.
Sarah Palin 2012.
Is there nothing this woman won't do to keep herself in the news?
She's really building herself up for a huge letdown. Not only couldn't she win a national election, she won't even get the nomination.
But keep trying, idiot.
Keep fighting Sarah!
Keep opening your mouth Sarah, how may feet can you get in it? By the way when she speaks for all us" Alaskans" up there; she only means herself and her coronies . Yes Sarah, there is a state of Alaska that extends past Wasilla.
God the culture war has made "politics" stupid.
Go back to Alaska
they're both worthless. did she seriously go all the way to kosovo to tell a joke! politics is nothing more than a boxing match. stop knocking each other around and just get this country put back together.
This woman isn't worth the news coverage. Stop giving her media attention!!
I do find it funny that she acts like such a victim all the time but still lashes out at others.
So, now this ex-beauty queen is making fun of someone's else's looks?
That's real presidential, Sarah.
America sure dodged a bullet when she didn't get elected to a national office.
Sarah Sarah Oh you are so Clever
But President of the United States Never
Just go to he** I'll pull the lever
Palin 2012 Ha Ha NOt
You can swift boat John Kerry, but his ugly mug is off limits!
I'll never vote for her, but I'll give her a point for that one.
go away sarah please.
Yeah, Go back to Alaska
That's actually really funny. I guess we know who Jay Leno is writing for these days...
Does she have lie every time she opens her mouth? Kerry didn't say shoot anyone. She's such a drama queen! She should change her name to Britney Palin and go on blinking, shaking her empty head and whinning about every little joke. Her whole life is a JOKE!
Why do we have to listen to her crap? Is this this important.? She won't stay away from the media. I think she wants to be a Hollywood celebrity not a politician. This is like soap opera.......
Yea! Go Sarah go! Just go!!!!!!
Are you sure she was referring to Kerry's face? The picture suggests another part of his anatomy.
she can comment or joke about everyone else , but when someone put's upa picture holding a funny little kid , she takes issue with that and Letterman , I hope she does try and run for POTUS , because we will have a field day picking this racist , vile ugly woman apart ....
