24 hours

Sarah Palin is meeting how many? foreign leaders in 24 hours? I forget. And I suspect she will too. Very quickly.

How is it possible in a democracy to keep a candidate to such an important job away from the press? I do believe everybody would find it quite OK, if she doesn’t know the name of the president of Belgium or whatever. But in one of two interviews (one on one) she’s given, she didn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is? And I remember that her “boss” McCain named the German chancellor Vladimir Putin… How can the Americans choose to vote for her, when they haven’t even heard her answer some of the questions, which must surely be on their minds?

Anyway, I don’t really have time to elaborate and I’m sure you’d rather I didn’t, so here are links to more qualified deliberations elsewhere: Washington PostInternational Herald Tribune, The Times.

I’ve read a lot about the bailing out of banks and other financial institutions lately. It is very difficult to form an opinion! But I think I’m getting there and tomorrow I’ll let you in on my thoughts!

But now I’m off to the movies with a group of other women (neighbours) to see – The Women. It’s got horrible reviews and it looks more than a little silly. But I’m sure we’ll have a good laugh.
