I'll be back in 2 days. I expect to know exactly how many times she used the restroom, drank water (how many sips plus total volume of water), and how many times she adjusted her necklace.



Seriously. Let her fade away. The more you bring her up, the more you help her.

I was going to say, didn't he go there recently for this TV series?:

But anyway, I thought political candidates travel all the time, even David Cameron, whilst opposition leader here, went on several overseas trips. How is this news exactly?

Actually it real is not, though she is getting paid a hefty sum to give a talk, and also her total lack of any foreign travel was a sticking point when she ran with McCain. Though in her defense she could see Russia from her house.

Because anything she does somehow becomes news.

I'll start caring once she gives her speech. It'll be interesting how she deals with the issue of outsourcing - it's not good for US jobs, but it is also a natural result of the sort of laissez-faire capitalism that she espouses.

Did not realize India was part of the comedy circuit. Maybe her topic will include her understanding of geography and talk to them about the '. . country of Africa.'

And she is going to take questions...this is going to be hilarious!

Funny how we can find out what Sarah Palin is doing quicker in these forums than in the actual news.

Almost like there are some here that just search Google for news on Palin so they can post it here.

Give it a rest already, why do you have to be so concerned about her, no-one else seems to care.

It just always cracks me up that the only reason she is as big as she is is because liberals can't keep from stopping and staring. Most conservatives don't take her seriously, but the liberals seem convinced that she is a big player on the right. It seems to me that liberals can't stand her being famous, but its the liberals that keep her famous.

Like the 5th Beatle, Sarah Palin is the 7th Python (Monty). She is a folksy, hilarious comedienne who has garnered worldwide fame. Her comedy troupe is known as the Tea Party, in honor of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party per Lewis Carroll. Those who think she's a politician haven't caught on to her brand of humor.

Some travel tips:

It is possible to see the following countries from India: Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, China, Burma.

Image is Reality.

Flip the script...

..imagine some widely known (in India)/controversial half-assed hack politician from India coming to the United States - with the US holding the idea that the good people of India might seriously elect this vapid nutjob - as President, to lead this nuclear power (which is continuously on the brink with neighboring Pakistan). The US would be very much on edge.

But the worse case scenario for the Indian people is not much more than a case of simple mixed signals with regard to their perception of the American people ..and 'their leaders'. Palin is sure to play up her '(perceived) leadership role' as if she were someone of significant importance. Luckily for us, most Indians of influence are particularly au courant..and already know it's an empty suit (and head) trying to present itself as something it isn't.

..so in the end, in truth.. it's another paycheck for Palin.

And it's always a good thing when people are exposed to 'new environs'. Hopefully she'll spend about 30 mins and get a good whiff of Dharavi and spend a couple of hours dodging poop on the ground that wasn't left by a actual pooch. That'll be a serious wake up call...and a 'welcome to our world' moment. Talk about brain circuitry overload.

I think he was simply suggesting that he'd be perfectly happy if she went to India and never came back, as in she decided to stay in India. I really don't think anyone was wishing death upon her.

It is pretty pathetic how much people care about her, imo. I can honestly say that I haven't even followed her since the 2008 elections... Why should I? The "because she is funny" etc etc reply is nothing but an excuse.

Let her dissapear already...

Why should I?

Reasons:

1. She is arguably the most powerful woman in America today - a Joan of Arc to many.
2. Liberals want her to keep on ranting as it will divide the Republican vote come 2012.
3. Republicans want her to shut up and go away for the same reason.
4. The rest of us just find her very entertaining in a crazy sort of way.
