"Coffee Summit" (Sarah + Hillary) is a joke

Coffee summit?

That’s a proposed meeting between Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. The name is a take-off from Obama’s “beer summit” with a Harvard professor and a Massachusetts cop.

Palin Finds One Bond With Clinton
Published: November 15, 2009
Could there be a “coffee summit” in the future between Hillary Rodham Clinton — the secretary of state, runner-up for the Democratic presidential nomination, former senator and author — and Sarah Palin, author, former Republican vice-presidential candidate and former governor?
Mrs. Clinton smiled and replied, “Well, you know, I’ve never met her.”
Within hours of that appearance, the blogosphere had already christened a potential tête-à-tête as the “coffee summit.”

Yes, Mrs. Clinton, you’ve never met Sarah Palin. You know why that is? It’s because of YOU!

Recall this New York Post editorial of September 20, 2008, “Dems Diss Palin, Israel”:

On Monday, a public rally is set for Dag Hammerskjold Plaza, across from the UN, to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s upcoming speech to the General Assembly and unite in opposition to his nuke program and his vow to wipe the US and Israel “off the map.”

Major Jewish and pro-Israel groups have sponsored such mass rallies for decades. And they’ve always featured political figures from both major parties – often, even rival candidates for the same office.

The point, and it’s an important one, is that support for Israel – and opposition to its warmongering enemies – generally transcends partisan politics in America.

This time, however, Sen. Clinton – who early on accepted an invitation to speak – reportedly hit the roof when she learned that she would share the platform with GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

According to news accounts, the Obama campaign and Jewish Democratic groups likewise loudly protested what they perceived as a Republican tilt to the rally – on the dubious grounds that Palin “outranks” Clinton. Or maybe Hillary was just piqued that she was no longer the star attraction.

At any rate, Camp Clinton announced that the senator would just as soon stay home.

To hell with Israel! Let it be wiped off the map! I’m Hillary Clinton, and I can’t be seen with Sarah Palin!

So my gentle advice, Sarah, is if this woman invites you to a “coffee summit,” tell her to stick her vente where the sun don’t shine.

Also, tell the good Secretary of State that she’s doing great work demanding numerous concessions from Israel, our ally.

Finally, tell her that you don’t like coffee and that you prefer tea.
