Palin attempts to meet with first foreign leader

Sarah Palin, who admitted in an interview with Charlie Gibson last week that she'd never met with a foreign leader, is attempting to put one in the plus column. According to NBC News, Palin has asked to meet with Afghan President Hamid Karzai at next week's meeting of the United Nations' General Assembly.

Palin's invite to Karzai was probably an attempt to counterpunch Joe Biden, who actually is meeting with the new Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari. There's no word on whether Karzai accepted Palin's invite. If he does, let's hope she doesn't repeat what she told Gibson about her credentials for dealing with Russia: "They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."

That ought to impress him.
