    Sarah Palin at "The World Knowledge Conference"? . . . man is this an oxymoron-rich environment.

    She likes to run & hike, right? Perhaps someone can recommend that she explore the hiking trails to the north & westparts of the Korean peninsula.

    America would be better off without her. Karl Rove agrees that the Republican party`s prospects would be better off if she just disappeared, that`s for sure.

    Pointless Palin "news" again but I wish the caption had read "Palin moves to South Korea" better yet North Korea. Stop covering this nothing of a person.

    Why, exactly?

    Her greatest political office was as a governor for an incomplete term in a US state removed from the 48 contiguous states. From the outside looking in, she's a nobody. And she has effectively no credibility in business. How arrogant is she, that she thinks she has any business there?

    These so called "business leaders" are inviting someone to speak to them who has no knowledge at all of how to deal with business.
    And she will speak under what capacity? She is neither a leader nor hold any respectable Office.

    The woman is going to go overseas and bash Obama again, just like she did a few months back in India. After she returns to the States, she will claim, "I have foreign policy experience." I'm sorry, Saray. Beef Pad Thai and Mumbia Chicken is a gastronomicl experience, not foreign policy experience.

    Sarah chose the word 'Rogue' to describe herself.

    It has many meanings, some of which are swindler, trickster and villain.

    She prophesied over herself.

    Oh lord. Please don't televise her trip. What glorious comments are coming next? While she's in Korea, will she mistakenly refer to Saigon and Beijing, as Korean cities?

    Yes, world. Here is the "shining example" of a DUMBED-DOWN American (an anti-science, intolerant, folksy-talking, evangelical . . . .and people blame Obama 100% for long-term unemployment here? . . . maybe it hasn't dawned on them that US educational standards have been a DISASTER, compared to other industrialized nations for the past 2 decades – this, together with the economy shifting from manufacturing to service, spell disaster).

    Palin will speak at the World Knowledge Forum, wow talk about an oxymoron, what exactly is she knowledgable about? Parenting – No, Governing, NO, history, NO I doubt she could locate South Korea on a map with large print. Didn't she say we were friends with North Korea a few months back. If only so could insure that she crosses a border "accidently".

    Are there any other un elected former small town Mayors that left 20 million dollar debts from Alaska going on this trip ? How about all of the former Governors that walked out on their states when the going got tough ? Any other non english speaking people joing Sarah on her trip ?

    I'm sure the liberals who have something bad to say about EVERYTHING this woman does will object to this in some way

    This is a joke, right? "World Knowledge Forum"??? Don't they know that knowledge is the one thing that Palin lacks the most?
