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.

    She was a laughing stock. She proved how unqualified, unprepared, and undiplomatic she is.

  3. Republicans Are The American Taliban

    Excerps from Granny Sarah Grizzleys speech in India...."Holy Cow!!" "Just look at all you guys!" "Now I know how Colonel Custard felt at The Little Big Man River in North Dakota!, another great state,founded by our forefathers" "But to quote him, to relate how I feel right now"... "Don't retreat, Reload!!"...makes whoop noise with her hand and mouth. " For every one of you that buys my book, there's a call center job in it for you!"

    This bimbo should not be speaking on beghalf of the United States. She's not even an elected official and even when she was, she quit her job. Get out of Israel and quit embarrassing me. Go crawl back under your rock in Wasilla.

    So, US presidential candidates feel compelled to visit Israel, ahead of a campaign. What is wrong with this picture?

    Too little, too late. She doesn't seem to have had any interest whatsoever prior to now. I very much doubt she has ever read anything about foreign policy, studied other countries, learned their history... She has no dignity, carries no intellectual weight. We've already done the dopey-cowboy thing. It didn't work out so well.

    Palin should visit Tripoli, Baghdad, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iran, Egypt and GAZA, and the Nuke Reactors in Northern Japan!!!!!!

  10. I'll bet

    I'll bet she's downright cute with all the Israelites. Just bristling with enthusiasm and tryin' new foods and such.

    Somebody *please* tell me what business this nut job has meeting with heads of state in foreign countries?!?! She's a FAILED HALF TERM GOVERNOR and a FAILED VP CANDIDATE without the brains nor the finesse necessary to run a one-man island much less the United States of America! And what on earth is Netanyahu doing receiving her in state like this?!?! That, in and of itself, is a slap to our country. She does not represent ANYONE or ANYTHING that should merit treatment as a foreign dignitary. Something needs to be said!

    The rabbi in the photo is asking himself.. "Who is this woman? And why is she annoying me with all the idiotic things she says?"

    You know that's what he's thinking. Look at his face. The rabbi is not alone.

    This bimbo is nothing but an embarrassment to America.

    Palin is not the first person that hates America to visit Israel, as well she is not the first cancelled reality TV star to visit the middle east so not much new here.Palin may be the biggest liar to ever set foot in Israel though.

    What she is talking about, doesn't indicate that anyone can appoint her as Commander-in-Chief of the greatest nation on earth.

    Lord, please put her and us out of our misery. How could this person still be prominent, and still think she has something to contribute. Not one iota of a brain cell. (please explain "iota" to her). What has America come to?

    This must have comedy writers salivating. How long before Sarah orders pork chops and or trys to cash a check at the West Bank?

    Run, baby, run!

    So Obama will be reelected with ease.

    Why is that twit meeting with any world leaders? Didn't she embarrass us sufficiently during her VP run? Why can't she just stay in Alaska and SHUT UP? She NEVER has anything intelligent to say.

    I doubt that this is anything other than showing those Christian conservatives that she believes as they do. I understand that they believe there is a need to get every Jew back to Israel for the "final battle" when Jesus returns.

    The way things are looking right now, she will be lucky if Israel still exists by the time that she runs. The whole Middle East is coming unglued.

    How will she humiliate us this time?

    This is the Republicans...

    "Look at me, look at me, I love the Jews the most...(that is until the judgment day where if they don't convert we will put them all to the sword)...."

    For the love of god, Sarah, please, please run for president. This country needs for you to be soundly defeated once and for all.
