Russians Invade Alaska

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Gov. Palin has spent the last six weeks telling us she’s on lookout if Russia tries to mount an invasion of the US through Alaska. But while she’s down here in the Lower 48 trying to get her crowds to think that Barack Obama is in league with Muslim terrorists, the Russians themselves just landed in Anchorage. According to Bloomberg, more or less the entire senior management of the Russian oil and gas monopoly Gazprom just showed up in Alaska to meet with Palin’s Department of Natural Resources and the CEO of ConocoPhillips to see if they can get in on that big pipeline projects she keeps bragging about that she says is going to lead us to energy independence.
