During an appearance on Neil Cavuto’s FBN show Thursday night, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin reacted to Sen. John Kerry‘s DNC speech, specifically a stab he took at both Palin and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska; Mitt Romney talks like he only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV,” Kerry said to the crowd, drawing laughter and applause.
“A tad condescending, what did you think of that?” Cavuto asked Palin.
“I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name,” she responded. “How does he even know my name?”
She then took a swipe at Kerry as being an elite liberal who doesn’t concern himself with what she believes are regular Americans such as herself: “Aren’t these guys supposed to be bigwig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me? Me representing the average American.”
Palin then defended those 2008 remarks she made to ABC’s Charlie Gibson and are now the butt of Kerry’s joke: “Yeah, I did say that in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base. And I was making a point we’re strategically located on the globe when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over.”
“It is funny he would take a little pot shot like that,” he concluded, “but it’s funny he even knows my name.”
