Palin: I Can See Russia From My Bank Account

I totally stole that headline from a poster on Politico.

In what seems like a scene from "Burn After Reading", McGeorgia sends a fundraising letter to Russia's envoy to the UN. From Politico:
On a day on which McCain campaign manager Rick Davis hinted that Obama was taking foreign money, the Russian Mission to the United Nations has released a standard-issue fundraising letter gone a bit astray: It was addressed to the Russian envoy to the U.N., Vitaly Churkin, at the mission's address, but without his title.

According to Ruslan Bakhtin, press secretary of the Russian mission, the letter dated September 29 and signed by McCain, was addressed to Vitaly Churkin, Russia's envoy to the UN, and arrived on October 16.

The ambassador's title was not included in the letter, and was not clear why the letter had taken over two weeks to arrive.

Enclosed was a request for a donation of up to $5,000 to McCain's election campaign to be returned with a check or permission to withdraw the money from the donor's credit card until October 24.

Bakhtin confirmed the story to Politico, and wouldn't comment on the added oddity of the error coming from the anti-Russian McCain. "We just find it amusing," he said.

Best comments I've seen:

Sorry, Georiga. We're all Russians now!
Clearly Palin didn't want to keep Putin out of her airspace, and neither did McCain.
My friends. When I look into Putin's eyes, I see dollars.
