Seeing red(s)–checking Palin’s claim to see Russia

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubikcan @ 4:54 pm

The Hey What’s That website has done a factcheck on Palin’s claim to be able to see Russia from Alaska. The result? Russia is neither visible from Wasilla, the roof of the governor’s mansion in Juneau nor even from the top of Mt. McKinley. You have to go to the remotest western outlying regions of Alaska such as St. Lawrence Island before you can being to see Russia.

Great catch!
