Many people are familiar with the Sarah Palin quote that Saturday Night Live spoofed.
I can see Russia from my house!
ABC edited the video to only show the immediate question:
GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?
PALIN: They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.
Though I didn’t support her candidacy, her remarks are not as looney as they may have seemed, taken out of context.
