What Sarah Palin actually said about Russia, “They’re our next door neighbors. You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.”
What people THINK Sarah Palin said about Russia, “I can see Russia from my house.” But she didn’t. She never said that. Tina Fey did. In a skit on Saturday Night Live.
This is how a hatred myth is created. The left needed people to hate Sarah Palin. When she ran for VP in 2008, she was FAR more likeable and appealing than her running mate Senator John McCain. The Dems couldn’t have too many people cheering her on to the second highest post in the land. Her children were attacked. (Wait… aren’t the kids supposed to be off limits?) Her every word was attacked. Their goal was to destroy her politically.
They were so successful that five years later, we still see tweets like this one:

Last I heard, that guy is a radio personality in DC. He is making fun of something Tina Fey said, but Sarah Palin never did, in order to make Sarah Palin look bad. But it’s okay to spread falsehood, as long as it furthers the cause of the Left. He was only one of many who thought it would be funny to make jokes about Sarah Palin and her Russian neighbors. It is said that no publicity is bad publicity. People are still thinking about Sarah Palin. They still need to make her into a joke. Because no one pays any serious attention to a joke.
Fact: With the exception of the Alaska panhandle, every bit of Alaska is closer to Russia than it is to the lower 48 States.
Fact: There are places in Alaska where you CAN see Russia.
Fact: You won’t shut up Sarah Palin, nor any other fearless Patriots with your jokes, laughter, dismissal, and derision.
