What You Heard

The folks at Today I Found Out recently included an examination of the phrase many people believed to have been uttered by then-Governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, "I can see Russia from my house." Which Tina Fey said while portraying the governor in a sketch, but which Palin herself never said.

Of course, anyone who got their news from the news instead of Saturday Night Live would have known that to be true, no matter what they might think of Sarah Palin. To me, the interesting thing is that this item is featured on the site, which is generally dedicated to finding out interesting bits of history and correcting some common misconceptions, even though it happened only six years ago.

The internet, her memory is short.
