Alaska Gov. and John McCain’s vice presidential pick Sarah Palin has touted her state’s proximity to Russia enhances of her foreign policy credentials. Palin told CBS News anchor Katie Couric: “Our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They’re in the state that I am the executive of. And they’re in Russia.”
To gauge how large a presence Russia is in Alaska, CNN reporter Gary Tuchman goes to the place where you can actually see our former Cold War enemy, the remote Little Diomede island. Turns out Sarah Palin has never been to the little island, which leads Politics (Un)Seriously to wonder whether Little Diomede mayor Andrew Milligrock was considered for the ticket.
