Joe Biden was at it again today, calling Kyrsten Sinema “Kristin” and unleashing this doozy:
Biden says that during the Obama administration he worked with every state governor, "save one." He knocks former Alaska Gov. Palin, not by name, but as the governor who "can see Alaska from her porch."

Now, at this point, it is probably futile to keep reminding people that Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house. She pointed out, at the 2008 vice presidential debate, that there are places in Alaska where you can literally see Russia on a clear day. Which is true. But for a lot of people, Tina Fey’s line from the Saturday Night Live skit about that debate became the truth, and they remember that instead of what actually happened.
But here’s the thing: in the 2008 vice presidential debate, Palin was debating Joe Biden. He was right there on stage. She was talking to him. Yet, he has somehow gotten his own reality confused with a TV skit about a debate he was in.
