Palin’s first foreign policy controversy

October 2, 2008

PM Asif Ali Zardawi of Pakistan in under criticism at home after ‘flirting’ with Governor Palin during their tryst meeting at UN a week ago. Like proponents of the US bailout bill, Zardawi has been hearing it from the left and right in his country:

A radical Muslim prayer leader said the president shamed the nation for “indecent gestures, filthy remarks, and repeated praise of a non-Muslim lady wearing a short skirt.”

Feminists charged that once again a male Pakistani leader has embarrassed the country with sexist remarks. And across the board, the Pakistani press has shown disapproval.

Would Palin need to cover up when meeting Muslim heads of state?

So, what does Todd think?
