Is that really newsworthy?

I try very hard to not listen to the news anymore. I do watch Good Morning America every weekday morning. Mostly because I admire Robin Roberts, less for the actual reporting. Even more annoying to me than the constant barrage of how our government sucks and how we are in a recession, but no one wants to admit to it, is the incessant political ads now running every 5 fucking minutes. Don't get me wrong I understand that campaigning is just a part of running for whatever elected office you choose to run for, but this election campaigning has been going on and on and on and on and on.... enough already. Vote. Get it over with.

As we all are aware (because of all the media coverage of it), Sarah Palin actually met foreign leaders and the like on Tuesday at the UN in New York. Good for her. I doubt that the 10 or 15 minutes that she spent with any of them will make a huge impact on her knowledge of foreign policies, but good for her. The morning ABC news showed what little camera footage they had of her visits with these dignitaries. The cameras and reporters were only allowed a few brief moments to snap a few shots of her smiling while shaking hands and then they were hurriedly rushed out of the rooms. She didn't answer any questions. She was rushed along with not even so much as a glimpse at the media. In fact, in one video file right before Gov. Palin stepped out the door of a building, a police car and a Secret Service Suburban pulled right in front of the video camera.

I can't help but feel like this is all for show. Just so she can say yes she's actually met someone from a foreign country. Am I the only one rolling their eyes at this whole charade?
