Governor Palin is in Kosovo with our troops. She's as busy as she always is. According to her tweets, already today she has visited a school where our troops are helping students learn English, spoke to the task force Falcon, walked the streets with troops talking about America and teaching them some Yupik (Todd is part Yupik Eskimo), spent time with Alaska Aviators, and met with the Lithuanian Minister of Defense. You can see those tweets and others at her Twitter page, AKGovSarahPalin. In addition, she formally addressed the troops today.
The video is not a professional one, but it is interesting to watch nonetheless. You can see her appreciation for our troops as a mom, her commitment to them as an elected official, her concern for their safety, and her overall love for America. She also announced that upon leaving Kosovo, she will be traveling to Germany to visit wounded soldiers.
Governor Palin took a break from the seriousness of the address around 9 minutes into the first video when she addressed Senator Kerry's comment about wishing she had gone missing rather than South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. It was said with laughs, but it certainly was a jab back at him.
The short second video is just the stike-back at Kerry, so if you don't have time to watch the full address (I recommend watching it), you can just cut to the cut! Does John Kerry really want to exchange blows with Governor Palin? Like I said before, he can't win!
