Very true Richard. But did we really need half the BBC news team in the US to report on it. I know it was a tremendously important election, but were BBC's own American correspondent's not capable of reporting on events locally?

Richard Havers said...

Ken, really! You begrudge them their junket? What kind of license fee payer are you?

James Higham said...

Yet she'll be back in eight years, as she said.

Ken Dyer said...

I know, very silly of me. Of course we should pay for the 100 or so (did I read 160 somewhere?) business class seats and accommodation and expenses etc whilst they were in US!

Whilst I'm proud to call myself a "shooting man" and am a long-standing member of the BASC and the Countryside Alliance....there was something about Sarah Palin that made me feel a bit uncomfortable.

I suspect that we'll all have forgotten about her very soon.

Richard Havers said...

I'm with you LL. Everything about Sarah Palin is likely to give anything she is associated with a bad name.

All flash and no substance comes to mind.

Ken Dyer said...

I dont know, something tells me we have not seen the last of her. She may be running for President next time!

Hi Richard.
Several comments.
First, as an American, I must admit I find Sarah Palin to be a shallow, right-wing zealot. Yes, the US has its own taliban...called the religious right.
I think she just may have cost mccain the election.
And she thinks she's a superstar.
Now the embarassing part----she's from Idaho originally. AAARRRGGGHHHH!!
Even if she is only one-tenth as ignorant (not to be confused with stupid) as she appears, this lady is frightening.

BTW, when I want unbiased news on the US, I watch BBC America.

Master of the understatement Lakelander?

Richard Havers said...

Rob, you nailed it! I send my deepest condolences in regard for you and La Palin sharing the same birth state.

Ken, stop it...you'll frighten the children....

Rab....good point...
