My Thoughts Exactly

If You Look Really Hard, You Can See Russia

Following the lead of Fox News, John McCain recently tried to slap some lipstick on the pig that is Sarah Palin's foreign policy credentials:

Q: Can you honestly say you feel confident having someone who hasn’t traveled outside the United States until last year, dealing with an insurgent Russia...

MCCAIN: Sure...Alaska is right next to Russia. She understands that.

And last night the seventy-two year old's running mate put to rest any questions about her ability to deal with Putin :

Pressed about what insights into recent Russian actions she gained by living in Alaska, Palin told Gibson, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

So there! If you go to an unnamed island in Alaska and look really hard across Siberia, the Ural Mountains, eight time zones and about 4,000 miles, you can see Moscow. I know I feel better.
