There are serious issues at stake today in the election, such as who will have the majority in the House and whether the tea party is just a fad or capable of real change. But the most controversial topic may be this: Can you really see Russia from Alaska? Sarah Palin’s out to prove it’s true!
Proving that the mom and former governor either has a wicked sense of humor or absolutely no self-awareness after the debacle two years ago, Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page under the heading “Alaska’s Position on the Globe (Yes, You Can See Russia!).” It shows what she says is Russia visible over the shoulder of a fellow “tough Alaskan.”
But really it’s a Palin appeal to please oh please vote for Joe Miller for Senate in Alaska – presumably not a call for new geography books or such.
So are you convinced? Is the “lamestream media,” as Palin calls them, wrong for making fun of her?
