VP candidate Sarah Palin is being roasted once again for her rather silly claim that Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience.
Following the Tina Fey SNL skit which made fun of this particular point, governor Sarah Plain is parodied right on the cover of the new issue of the New Yorker.
After parodying presidential candidate Barack Obama in a controversial and arguably racist cover, the New Yorker proves that it does not discriminate or favor one side over the other in this election. The cover depicts a caricature of Sarah Palin looking through binoculars from Alaska to Russia.
Check out the trends below to see how the press roasted Sarah Palin about this and more in her Katie Couric interview and the corresponding SNL parody.
