Erroneous reports that Sarah Palin was in India to deliver a keynote speech were finally sorted when a local Indiana newspaper was able to get an exclusive interview with the former Governor of Alaska.
"Gosh sakes, no," said Palin. "I have a hard enough time getting across America let alone flying halfway around the world to another country. No, I'm afraid again the reporters have gotten it all wrong. I was just over there in New Delhi, Indiana talking with a friend of mine who owns the 7-11 where I buy my diet Dr. Pepper when I'm in town. Of course, we do discuss politics, so I guess if you want to call it a keynote speech, you go right ahead."
Palin claims that there was no way she'd ever go to another country where the residents don't speak English. "I can't even imagine going to India with my language skills," she said. "I mean, yeah, I've seen 'Dancing with Wolves' and I know the Indian word tatanka, which means buffalo, but that's as far as it goes for me."
At the end of her speech, the owner of the 7-11, Pradesh Singh stated simply "I just wanted to know if she wanted a straw for that Dr. Pepper."
