OOPS! Another Faux Foreign Policy Experience For Sarah Palin

And the resume padding hits just keep on coming: Sarah Palin has committed yet another political blunder after claiming she had held talks with a Bri

And the resume padding hits just keep on coming:

Sarah Palin has committed yet another political blunder after claiming she had held talks with a British ambassador - talks that never actually took place.

In an answer to questions about her foreign policy experience ahead of tonight's make-or-break vice presidential TV debate, her aides listed numerous contacts with foreign officials - including Britain's ambassador to Washington, Sir Nigel Sheinwald.

However the meeting never occurred. Officials at the embassy swiftly contacted the McCain-Palin campaign to inform them of the discrepancy.

A British Embassy spokesman said the error arose after Sir Nigel's name was listed among those who had attended a US Governor's meeting in July.

So her aides used a list with the names of guests at a meeting Palin was at in an attempt to show her foreign policy experience, but that list had an error on it. Even if Sir Nigel Sheinwald showed up, what is to say that he and Palin actual met and exchanged ideas? It really sounds like her handlers are throwing out anything they can to pad her resume a little more, and that tactic has just come back to bite them.
