  1. But wasn’t it Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live that made up the line about seeing Russia from her (Palin’s) house?

    • What Palin actually said was, “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska” in response to what insight she has on Russia.

      On a related note of quotes never said… I wonder if you’re astute enough to know that Al Gore never claimed to invent the internet.

      • And you are saying, that was a good response to the question?

        It was so lame a response that SP actually started the joke herself.

        • Well, it was more an attempt at pointing out how things get taken out of context. But if you’re looking for a specific ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the initial question, there was the assumption of once putting forward the actual statement that one would conclude that Fey embellished the original statement for comedic effect.

  2. I lived on the Kenai Peninsula just a few miles across Cook Inlet was the Alaskan Peninsula i used to tell my relatives that came up to visit that that was Russia and thanks to public School they would believe me.
