AL, maybe only a hand full of birfoons knew you could see Russia from Alaska on a clear day but I knew it long before I finished grade school. And most should have at least known after Alaska became a state. We knew as well that knowing that piece of trivia didnít give one an iota of foreign policy experience and that was actually the gist of the matter.Hot C_2036 wrote:

After today on Cpac , he will want to poke something else at her. Yes he was making fun of Sarah back then, but only a hand full of people knew you really could see Russia from land in Alaska, and in the western part of Alaska you can actually walk to Russia from Alaska . Many tourist do that to say they walked to Russia. Russia doesn't like it but does nothing as long as people only step across the border and go back . Alaska use to be part of Russia.
