McCain: What is on His Mind & The Headless Woman

drawing by marguerita

These are people with their own heroic guiding myths — of creation, nation and divinity — and their own intricate and inviolable rule:a thorough and original anatomy of an alternative universe....

McCain: I wanna go and moose-hunt with her. And then we can, maybe we can have a look

: Are you sorry you said it?

Couric: The risk?

Couric: What did you learn from that experience?

McCain: … and the fact …

Palin: That's okay.

McCain: That's life.

Couric: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?

Palin: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land-boundary that we have with Canada. It's funny that a comment like that was kinda made to … I don't know, you know … reporters.

Palin: I think, with Ahmadinejad, personally, he is not one to negotiate with. You can't just sit down with him with no preconditions being met. Barack Obama is so off-base in his proclamation that he would meet with some of these leaders around our world who would seek to destroy America and that, and without preconditions being met. That's beyond naïve. And it's beyond bad judgment.

Couric: Are you saying Henry Kissinger …

Palin: It's dangerous.
