Misconception

Sarah Palin is frequently quoted as saying “I can see Russia from my house.” I never heard her say that, so without knowing the context, I assumed that she was using hyperbole. Obviously you can’t see Russia from Wasilla or Juneau and no one is likely to be confused on that point.

But, as it turns out, there is a reason I never heard Palin say it: she didn’t. The line is not from Palin, but from Tina Fey’s parody of Palin.
