Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin's Hong Kong Weirdness


Personally, I’ve always been really interested in the ideas too about the land bridge. Ideas that maybe so long ago, had allowed Alaska to be physically connected to this part of our world so many years ago. My husband and my children, they’re part [unintelligible] Eskimo, Alaskan natives. They’re our first people, and the connection that may have brought ancestors from here to there is fascinating to me.

Horrible writing aside ("Ideas that maybe so long ago, had allowed Alaska"?), what a strange thing to say to people in Hong Kong. It's like an Australian official going to Africa and talking about how they're connected -- you know, because of the Aborigines. By the way, scientists say the land bridge disappeared around 12,000 years ago. But if the world is only 6,000 years old, how can that be?

Apparently, she also warned against a "one-nation Asia" -- a concept that's not even really being discussed.

Adding... A reader passed this note along:

Isn't there something about not badmouthing the US on foreign soil . . . and during a war too???? Hypocrites!
