John Kerry isn’t known for his comedic talents, but on Thursday he delivered one of the Democratic National Convention’s most memorable zingers. “Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska,” he said in his speech. “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.” Palin was ready with another clever comeback. “I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name,” Palin told Fox Business Network. “How does he even know my name?”
“I mean aren’t these guys supposed to be these big wig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me — me representing the average American who, yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over [in] Alaska and I as the governor had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation. So it’s funny that he would take a little pot shot like that. It’s funny that he even knows my name.”
That is pretty weird. Maybe Kerry saw an ad for Sarah Palin’s Alaska during a TLC Toddlers & Tiaras marathon?
