Former Alaska Temp-Governor Sarah Palin recently addressed a dinner meeting of India’s top thinkers and celebrities at the India Today Conclave. India Today Editor-in-Chief Aroon Purie respectfully introduced Mrs. Palin as “the sexiest brand in Republican politics.” Intellectuals in the audience were delighted with her presentation, “My Vision of America,” as it was an object lesson in why India is overtaking the U.S.A. as a world power. Bollywood entertainment executives were likewise entranced, since political stand-up comedy is nowhere near that outrageous in South Asia.
Mrs. Palin, who has a college degree in Journalism, demonstrated America’s cherished belief in Freedom of the Press to India by refusing to grant interviews to anyone who wasn’t paying her thousands of dollars for the privilege. Free Market Principles trump that silly First Amendment every time. Sarah Palin’s latest forum for media-bashing is, of course, sponsored by India’s big mainstream media conglomerate.
Next stop on the Sarah Palin World Tour: Israel. She needs to establish some kind of foreign policy credentials to fight off her new political rival, Charlie Sheen, who is quite knowledgable about Colombia.
