Asked about Herritage's statement, Palin's foreign policy adviser, Steve Biegun, insisted the candidate's position was correct. Russia's "old behaviors" of aggressively flying into U.S. airspace have been exhibited recently, he said.
"Governor Palin told me that when Russian aircraft buzz American airspace and U.S. aircraft are mobilized at Elmendorf Air Force Base, she is informed by her commander," said Biegun, who did not offer any additional explanation for the contradiction.
"The point she was making is that the geographical location of Alaska has unique attributes. This doesn't happen to many states in the union," Biegun said. "Her point was that she's pretty up close to some of the big issues of international affairs."
Yeah, well so are all the families that host foreign exchange students, you stupid twat. Right up there, up-close and personal, as Jim McKay used to say, with those whole "foreignality" and "internationality" things.
Good lord this woman is dumber than a bag of dirt.
