      I have a globe too, so I consider myself to be an expert on French Equatorial Africa AND the Belgian Congo!

      I have been collecting stamps since the age of four.  Now nearly 50 years later, I am an officer of America's oldest and most respective stamp club, the Chicago Philatelic Society.  So even though my foreign travels have been limited to a single three-hour trip to Windsor, Ontario back in the 1980s, I am prepared to claim more expertise in foreign policy than Blunder Woman Palin.  There is precedent for my claim.

      In addition to his many other accomplishments, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was one of the most noted stamp collectors of his time.  (He even designed a few of the US stamp issued while in office!)  In 1944, FDR went to Hawaii to meet with his military leaders in the war against Japan, including MacArthur and Nimitz.

      In the course of the discussions, FDR commented at great length about some small Pacific islands that were potential military targets.  MacArthur was amazed that the crippled Roosevelt, whom he knew had never been to that part of the the Pacific, was so knowledgable about these islands.  So afterward, Gen. MacArthur asked the President how he knew so much about these islands.

      FDR replied, "Why Douglas, I collect stamps!"  

    •  I could be the US ambassador to the UK now... (0+ / 0-)


      I lived in England for three years as a small child.  Heck, even my earliest memories are of jolly ole England.  And, as a bonus, I watch BBC America religiously.  Oh yah, and I even speak their langugage fluently...woo-hoo!

      Since that's like a GAJILLION times more experience than just stopping over and refueling, or having a few days visit, or simply being able to theoretically SEE a country from a location I have never visited even once in my life then I want to officially declare my fitness to be America's ambassador to England.

      Aside from the above credntials, I am an also a top expert on Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and the foreign nation of Hawaii (you know, the place where Obama takes his exotic elitist vacations) since I have visited each and every one of those countries for a week or more.

      Additionally, I have seen all four Alien movies more than 5 times apiece (and more than 50 times for the first 2 entries in that series).  Apart from making me quite possibly a lifeless geek shut-in with too much time on his hands, this has clearly prepared me to fight against any invasion by aliean zenomorphs we might face as a planet.  So, I also want to head up the International Anti-Alien Counter-Terrorist Administration... an organization I JUST TOTALLY MADE UP!!!  See, McCain/Palin, I can come up with meaningless bull$#!% and prop it up with worthless exeperience too!

      Yay for lying, distortion, and disinformation!
