Palin visits Israel as she mulls presidential run

JERUSALEM (CNN) - Following in the footsteps of several other Republicans considering a presidential bid, Sarah Palin was in Jerusalem Monday to meet with Israeli leaders.

"It feels wonderful and beautiful," Palin said during a nighttime visit to Jerusalem's Western Wall.

    In other news, Palin converts Israel to Christianity. "Let them eat pork," cried the queen of the almighty dollar.

    Who paid for this excursion? Was this excursion sanctioned by the state department? If not, why is this cretin being reported on as if she were on a fact finding mission? Me thinks the peoples needs to be leary of the media. Some are getting paid off, and it's at our expence.

    The intelligence of the Israeli people just went down a full percentage point the minute she landed.

    I can just imagine what the Israelis are saying about this political lightweight. What an embarassment. Can she even spell Israel?

    This woman is a national embarrassment, she goes oveseas when our nation is at war, and she critisizes our President, she is the one that is un-American. She's always accusing others of this, but she has no sense of loyalty to her own country, all she wants to do is sell herself to the highest bidder. $illy $arah always the victim of something, will have some excuse for her horrible behavior.

    Well, let's see if the twit can keep to her standing of not criticizing the President on foreign soil a little better in Israel than she did in India.

    I thought our national embarrassment would die down when Bush left office, then came Ms. Palin.....

    The only way Palin will see the inside of the White House is if she takes a tour. Even republicans are now finally admiitting that she's not a viable presidential candidate. Her 15 minutes are over.

    Palin's visit to the holy land might turn out to be interesting considering that she always has her facts mixed up. The leaders she meets with only meet with her out of courtesy for being a vice presisidential candidate thanks to John McCain. I hope her handlers will do a good job.

    Did she show up with a harpoon at the Wailing Wall?

    What a joke! Will she tell them that the reason fundamentalist Christians (like herself) don't want Jerusalem to be divided is because that is one of the requirements for the "rapture" to occur – which will leave all non-Christians (such as the Jews) behind?

    That's the only reason folks like Palin care about Israel at all; she's trying to establish her evangelical cred (along with her foreign policy cred, having touched a toe in another country).
