That’s funny. Because they ridiculed Sarah Palin for saying she could see Russia from her front porch, when in fact it was Tina Fey who said that.

I think that non-quote irked me the most because all the LIVs glommed onto it as though it were true.

Actual quote:

They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska

Even that liberal rag Slate magazine was able to debunk that story:

In the middle of the Bering Strait are two small, sparsely populated islands: Big Diomede, which sits in Russian territory, and Little Diomede, which is part of the United States. At their closest, these two islands are a little less than two and a half miles apart, which means that, on a clear day, you can definitely see one from the other.
