This blogger hopes Palin is a fast learner. It’s time to let her rip. Everyone knows she is going to be toast Oct. 2 when she faces off in a debate with Joe Biden, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Team McCain can’t count on winning that showdown based on a strong sympathy vote.
Think of the movie “If it’s Tuesday, This must be Belgium." Palin could ride the London Eye, climb the Eiffel Tower and visit the Brandenburg Gate, where Obama wowed thousands of enthusiastic Germans. She could take in either the Prado Museum (Note to Palin: reassure Spanish President Zapatero that John McCain certainly knows that Spain is a NATO ally and located in Europe), or more likely a bullfight.
Touching bases with Pope Benedict to give the Pontiff a heads-up about the “Rapture” would be a nice finishing touch.
A Palin Grand Tour would certainly knock loquacious Joe off his stride.
There is some good news on the campaign trail. John McCain has temporarily suspended his campaign to work on the economy (God, help us). He wants Barack Obama to postpone Friday’s debate. Palin should use the same ploy with Biden. How about pushing the debate back a week or two?
That would give Sarah time for a spin around Asia.
