Product Description

Sarah Palin is still ridiculed for her 2008 claim that she could see Russia from her house in Alaska. However, it was actually a Tina Fey line from a Saturday Night Live sketch, spoofing a Palin interview where she ACTUALLY said, "You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska." You could argue that this bit of cartographic trivia didn't make Palin an authority on geopolitics, but it's ACTUALLY factually correct: Russia and Alaska are close enough that on clear day, you COULD climb a hill on Cape Prince of Wales and MAYBE make out mainland Siberia. It's only fifty miles away. Oh, and you can also get a solid view of Russia by heading out into the Bering Strait to one of America's weirdest destinations: Little Diomede Island. HOWEVER, you know how we like our jokes (especially Russian spy jokes) around CultSub. So, we had to create and add this one to our collection.

This Alaska/Russia T-shirt is made of a thicker, heavier cotton, but it's still soft and comfy. You'll enjoy the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves which adds more durability.
