* Of course, there's the SarahPalin "I can see Russia from my house" inversion. [[BeamMeUpScotty Which was actually said by]] Creator/TinaFey. What Palin really said was that you can see Russia from Alaska, which you can. But it isn't exactly much foreign policy experience, which is what Palin was implying, that as governor (of less than two years) of Alaska, she had to deal with Russia next door; the parts of Alaska and Russia that are next to each other are really remote, and virtually nothing happens on the border except some fishing. Palin might've had a better shot at pushing her experience with the Canadians instead (Canada is a major economic partner for Alaska), but somehow dealing with Canada doesn't "count" as foreign policy.
