Red Sarah and Bad Judgment John

Today remains Wednesday, 15 October 2008.

Gazprom is the world’s largest producer of natural gas. It is also, in all but name, a subsidiary of the Russian government.

(For example, until Dimitri Medvedev became President of Russia in May, he was Chairman of Gazprom. He was replaced by Viktor Zubkov, who had been Prime Minister of Russia. Zubkov was replaced as Prime Minister by former Communist and KGB thug Vladimir Putin, the actual head of the Russian dictatorship.)

At a June shareholder meeting, Gazprom announced its desire to invest in the consortium aiming to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to Canada.
On Monday, elite Gazprom officials met with the Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Tom Irwin. Irwin, an appointee of Governor Sarah Palin, said the Governor had been notified of the meeting.

Why would Palin even briefly entertain the thought of Alaska granting, to an anti-American dictatorship, partial control over and profit from American natural resources? (And Palin must be entertaining the thought, or she wouldn't have allowed the meeting.) Will her lackeys next be pitching deals and woo to Iran and North Korea?

John McCain claims that “national security” is his strong suit. So why did he choose a running mate who will consider selling America out to an enemy? Once again, McCain illustrates the depths of his erratic personality and bad judgment.

As to Palin: Is she red state, or just plain Red?

My thought on this is that Russia may have indicated interest in the project just to see if either American or Canadian representatives would even entertain the idea of Russia being involved. Additionally, the American and Canadian representatives may have decided to speak with Russia out of curiosity. Just because parties talk, does not mean they will enter in an agreement. Just because parties talk does not indicate that they agree or condone how the other parties handle their internal affairs. I'm just saying broaden your thoughts on the possibilities of "why" they may have talked. Everything is not black and white. There are shades of grey.

More comment to come, my friend.

!!!. I just said "my friend".

The Zeitgeist.

Perhaps my tongue was in the cheek a tad.

Give me a day or two to ponder and respond, as your comment has true thought and heart.

Do you, as I, live in the world of grey?
