DUH, she'd never make that mistake. What do you take her for?

I mean everybody knows you aren't in a foreign country until you've crossed over into Hawaii. Or when you're at that one place in Disney with a different country on every street.

Now there is cause for a thought... Perhaps it would be better to just take Palin to Epcot, not only would she be able to see people dressing in different costumes, but she could get a taste of faux-international cuisine and culture. I mean after all, even African's wear Armani at the UN.

I've sat here trying to figure out how to explain the difference to you but if you don't get the fundamentals I just can't. Foreign policy trip versus tagging along. It's like my spouse taking me to the UN so I can say I have some experience. No wait, its not. Her being there is normal. Never mind.

Maybe its like a big brother taking a little sister to a ballgame to teach her the basics which is okay since everyone knows she needs training wheels. But you don't bring her along to sit in the dugout at the World Series in hopes of having her take a swing at the pitch.

It is unusual to see a senator at that meeting to begin with. Palin? No. Senators aren't normally even allowed to address the Security Council.

It's a world of hopes and a world of fears,
It's a world for dudes...there's no room for qu*ers,
There's so much we ignore
Though it's un-der our door,
It's a small world after all.

It's...a small world after all,
It's...a small world after all,
It's...a small world after all,
It's a small, small world.

There is just one moon and one golden sun,
And McCain says "F * ck you!" to everyone,
Though the Pub'cans divide and keep the homeless outside,
It's a small world after all.

It's...a small world after all,
It's...a small world after all,
It's...a small world after all,
It's a small, small world.

"Oh, Uncle Johny. That was fun! Can I get a hat with Mickey Mouse ears on it? Please?"
