You really can see Russia from Alaska

Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house--that was her look alike Tina Fey. Here's what she actually said, "They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." Big Diomede (Russia) and Little Diomede (U.S.A.) are about 2.5 miles apart. The media still love to play that meme to ridicule Palin. And God forbid that any woman other than Oprah becomes a media powerhouse, so she has to be attacked right now.

That said, President Obama may deserve impeachment (which Palin favors), but it's not going to happen, and encouraging others to believe this fantasy just diverts attention from what can be changed---like the Senate. I'm sick of the money appeals I get from groups I've never heard of wanting me to donate for this cause. And Democrats are getting funding appeals from their side on the same issue!
