From her ABC Interview:
Pressed about what insights into recent Russian actions she gained by living in Alaska, Palin told Gibson, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."
The actual good news in her interview is that since joining the McCain ticket Ms. Palin has recanted her AGW Skeptic ways:
FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska (AP) — Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's assertion that she believes humans play a role in climate change — made in her first major interview since joining the Republican ticket — is at odds with her previous statements.
...which means that she has been told by the campaign to recant, which means 1) the sheen on her will come off a little bit for U.S. SoCons who put a lot of stock in a denialist stance on this issue, and 2) John McCain is signalling to the mainstream that he takes AGW seriously enough that he wants his VP candidate to stay on the same page as he is (rather than freelance to attract Conservatives).
A welcome development, since most recent polls have turned in McCain's favour.

Good luck, dude, you'll need it.
