Sarah Palin went to Germany in 2007.


You probably missed her.

She chose not to give a public speech.


She chose to visit U S soldiers at Landsthul Regional Medical Center in Germany.


The picture was taken by Airman First Class Kenny Holston.

Well that settles it, she's ready to be VP.

Why did she go there? Why is there a photo?

I know a coupla people who went to Germany. Perhaps McCain might want to consider them as well.

I know I feel better knowing our potential Veep has been to Germany before.

And choosing not to make a speech is not equal to being the right candidate.

You're kinda out-of-control as far as she's concerned, deep.

Sarah Palin, governor of the great state of Alaska, didn't do a huge public speech while in my beloved home country of Germany in 2007 way before the first day of the primaries? I am shocked! Outraged even! Almost left speechless.

What has the world come to?

Can't say 100 % for sure

but, this seems like it could apply

She went because as Governor she is Commander of the Alaska National Guard.

She went to visit them in Kuwait and then to the Hospital in Germany.

The picture was taken by the soldier in the next bed?


It is not like she went to the wailing wall at 5 a m and had her people put up a banner and used the holy site for a cheap campaign photo op.

I think you said it looked like a photo shop job.

How many pictures would soldiers take if you went to go visit?

Of course, because she wasn't campaigning.

i like this conspiracy theory! I love how people think its offensive that people are thinking this way. Welcome Mrs Palin! Your life will never be the same!

I also love all the conservatives who were outraged over Jaime Lynn Spears, now has a vice presidential daughter in the same boat. Dirty little minx, where is your abstinence ring?!

Ramstein, which is close to the hospital in Landstuhl, is a stopover for most of the US transportation and governmental flights, so it's no real wonder that after having visited Kuweit, and not being in Berlin because of being in the middle of an election campaign for becoming the next President, she made a stop at the largest US hospital outside the US where most of the soldiers serving around the world are being treated before going back to war or for rehabilitation or reitirement back to the US.

And I am sure Biden and McCain have been there also, numerous times.

and many other U S Senators, and Governors that have members of their National Guard recuperating there.

It is too bad the Senator from Illinois did not care enough to visit.

Jessica Simpson visted a military hospital a couple years ago. I wonder why she didn't get nominated for Vice President.

And after all, why spend time sponsoring and supporting ridiculous bills like these Veterans | U.S. Senator Barack Obama that are designed to serve the veterans who have bravely served us, when you can just go get a photo op. with them in a hospital?
