    Default Sarah Palin demonstrates lack of brilliance when meeting with Pakistani president

    September 24, 2008
    Pakistan's president tells Palin she is 'gorgeous'
    Posted: 05:20 PM ET

    From From CNN's Peter Hamby and Wes Little

    Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari told Palin she's gorgeous.


    NEW YORK (CNN) – Sarah Palin and the foreign leaders she has met with in New York have said very little to reporters over the last two days, but the press happened to be in the room on Wednesday for one eyebrow-raising exchange, as the new president of Pakistan lavished praise on Palin's looks.
    On entering a room filled with several Pakistani officials this afternoon, Palin was immediately greeted by Sherry Rehman, the country's Information Minister.

    "And how does one keep looking that good when one is that busy?," Rehman asked, drawing friendly laughter from the room when she complimented Palin.

    "Oh, thank you," Palin said.

    Pakistan's recently-elected president, Asif Ali Zardari, entered the room seconds later. Palin rose to shake his hand, saying she was “honored” to meet him.

    Zardari then called her "gorgeous" and said: "Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you."

    "You are so nice," Palin said, smiling. "Thank you."

    A handler from Zardari's entourage then told the two politicians to keep shaking hands for the cameras.

    "If he's insisting, I might hug," Zardari said. Palin smiled politely.

    The Alaska governor did not answer questions from reporters at her first two appearances on Wednesday, when she joined McCain in meetings with Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili and Ukrainian president Viktor Yushchenko, and then traveled downtown to meet with Iraqi president Jalal Talabani.

    But she did offer brief remarks to a reporter at the Zardari meeting who asked about her day.

    "It's going great," Palin said. "These meetings are very informative and helpful, and a lot of good people sharing appreciation for America."

    No one is taking her seriously! Is she too dense to realize that?

    The fact that they're commenting on how she looks shows they aren't taking her seriously. god forbid McCain becomes prez and then dies. We'll have this ditz selling Avon products to every wife of a third world dictator out there.

    I'm surprised they didn't hit it off. He hates women, too.

    In fairness to her they have little else to comment about that wouldn't be offensive to her. "Do ever you hear from your former back-door man?" "How is Bristol's pregnancy going?" "Is Track still managing to pee clean?" "What kind of job is Todd doing running Alaska?"...she has no policy experience for them to allude to, and her personal shenanigans are off-limits, so that leaves only her status as as Princess Token-ette of the republican party to reference.

    Hillary would have rightfully bitch-slapped a mofo for a comment like that.

    Exactly. It's totally condescending. Can you imagine saying the same to a man and getting away with it?

    When is the McCain camp going to come out and denounce his remarks as sexist?

    Oh Jesus-effin-chr--the Pakistani president is publicly hitting on her? How decidedly unprofessional and undiplomatic.

    She still needs to be put out of her misery though.

    To be fair, I don't see anyone making a comment like that to Hillary. That president sounds like a condescending horndog. Considering Pakistan had a female president for years I would expect him to be a little more enlightened.

    Oh dear God... if 'gorgeous' is all the qualifications you need, put a supermodel in office.

    I find most men appreciate a nice slap on the ass and me calling them "sweet-cheeks." Keeps them feelin' purty.

    The president was married to the previous president Bhutto. I think he was taking the piss by saying this, because his wife was murdered a few short months ago.
