fiest let’s have a small geography lesson…
from the pic…
“When asked about foreign policy insights into Russia Gov. Sarah Palin stated during an ABC News interview on Sept.11, 2008, “They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.” Yes you can see Russia from an island off the coast of Alaska but then again Russia is the biggest country on Earth not to mention the capitol of Russia is on the other side of the fucking world. To Illustrate how shitty this reasoning is I have constructed this map to show haw far away Sarah Palin’s home town (Where she did most of her work as governor) is from Moscow, the capitol and economic center of Russia”
And as for the comment that it is ‘Our closest border’ that argument holds even less water. Do you know what lurks there? Nothing. Fucking nothing. Don’t believe me? Fucking google map it, bitch. Nothing there.
If you want to know how fucking removed from any developed part of Russia it is, rent ‘Long Way ‘Round’; a documentary about riding a motorcycle from London to New York, thru russia, Mongolia, and the true ass-end of nowhere.
After that, maybe, just MAYBE you will understand how idiotic a statement it was to have made by the potential Veep, and possible First President of the US. Its the equivalent of hiking into the Grand Canyon, and then claiming your pissing in the river helped relieve the drought in Los Angeles. It’s the same as saying because you got drunk at Oktoberfest, you are an fluent in German and it’s culture. In other words, it’s a load of stinking shit.
