McCain must be rolling over in his grave, oh, he's not dead? Sarah Palin must be killing him!

In her interview with Katie Couric, Palin gets tongue-tied when asked about her statement that her foreign policy experience comes from Alaska being near Russia and sharing a land border with Canada.

Katie Couric bails her out when she fumbles around and something about airspace is mentioned. Sarah Palin restates that her foreign policy experience does float through the air.

Implications - Sarah Palin cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as her primary experience in foreign policy; this flub will certainly be circulating around the Internet for quite some time. John McCain is probably kicking himself. If you have already you should definitely check it out.
