    Apparently, she never said she could see Russia from her house, that was Tina Fey’s impersonation of her.

    re: BZ

    Yes. It was Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live that said “I can see Russia from my house.”
    .
    It’s actually possible from Diomede, population 120. It should also be noted that on a clear day, those in the settlement on Little Diomede (U.S.) can see Big Diomede (Ru.), a little over 2 miles away.

    Yep, Tina Fey

    If you are going after someone, best to attack what they ACTUALLY said or did rather than act as if the only way is to make stuff up.

    The ring on the right is too big.

    She said you could see Russia from Alaska, which is true, if you’re standing in the right place in good weather. The ridiculous part is she claimed that qualified her to make foreign policy.

    The basis for the line was Governor Palin’s September 11 2008 appearance on ABC News, her first major interview after being tapped as the vice-presidential nominee. During that appearance, interviewer Charles Gibson asked her what insight she had gained from living so close to Russia, and she responded: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”

    @neatslob

    And how does a community organizer qualify?

    Actually she never said it. It was a skit on Saturday Night Live with Tina Fey. Whether SP is that geographically ignorant is anyone’s guess. We are all so eager to believe it because of her other preposterous statements. She’s a tough one to satirize effectively because she does such a fine job of it herself.

    I’m pretty sure I heard the same joke two weeks ago on CBC’s “This Hour has Twenty Two Minutes”. Not original.
