Some people thought Tina Fey was a little tough on Sarah Palin when she impersonated the GOP veep pick insisting "I can see Russia from my house!" But here's what Palin said when CBS's Katie Couric asked how her proximity to Russia gave her foreign policy experience:

"As Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state."

John McCain should be ashamed of himself.
