Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton address the nation

Tina Fey is brilliant.

Clinton: I believe diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy.
Palin: And I can see Russia from my house.

In SNL land the second answer is meant to sound stupid. In the real world, the second answer is the better one. As to their respective roads to the White House, Palin is Governor of Alaska; Clinton was married to the Governor of Arkansas. Rudimentary feminism suggests which is the more impressive and which the better qualification. The former road was traveled by Margaret Thatcher, the latter by Eva Perón.

A YouTube comment offers useful insight for progressive viewers.

My advic is save this You tube video and watch it repeatedly over the next 8 years. Practice your Palin bashing now and you might survive the pain of another Republican in office, or if it gets too bad here there is always places like Europe for you.

One caveat: Let's make that the next twelve or sixteen years.
