"They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."—Sarah Palin, in her softball interview with Charlie Gibson, responding to the question: "What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?"
I shit you not.
She was asked what insight into Russian actions Alaska's proximity gives her. And she said "You can actually see Russia from Alaska."
Please, dear Cheesus, don't let this person anywhere near Teh Button.
UPDATE: Btw, she also thinks going to war with Russia may be necessary. H/T to Shaker Oddjob, who sent that little tidbit under the subject line: "HOLY FUCKING SHIT."
