I'm not one of those who maybe came from a background of, you know, kids who perhaps graduate college and their parents give them a passport and give them a backpack and say go off and travel the world.I've worked all my life too: I worked in HS to save for college; I went to an inexpensive state school and worked to pay my way through college; and I still work.
No, I've worked all my life. In fact, I usually had two jobs all my life until I had kids. I was not a part of, I guess, that culture. The way that I have understood the world is through education, through books, through mediums that have provided me a lot of perspective on the world. Sarah Palin to Katie Couric
Despite not living anywhere near an international border, my parents drove my brother and I up Canada when we were kids (we even went to Quebec, where they speak a whole different language). I did get my passport after I graduated from college and made my first trip overseas. The bulk of my passport needing travel was for work and, whenever possible, I tried to experience and understand as much of the local culture as possible.
Couric: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?I guess that, if Sarah Palin is an expert on foreign affairs when she's never crossed the borders of either of the countries her state shares I have no choice but to admit that despite my upper-poverty upbringing, I AM AN ELITIST .
Sarah 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.
