Palin Wins Duel of Wits with Schwarzenegger

Former Governor Sarah Palin easily won a duel of wits with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger yesterday.

Schwarzenegger tweeted:
Over Anchorage, AK. Looking everywhere but can't see Russia from here. Will keep you updated as search continues.
along with this twitpic:
What was obviously meant to show Schwarzenegger's wit, fell flat because you can see Russia's Big Diomede Island from Alaska's Little Diomede Island even though you can't see it from Anchorage (660 miles away). It's as witty as tweeting "Over Portland, OR [300 miles from the California border]. Looking everywhere but can't see California from here. Will keep you updated as search continues."

However, Governor Palin, who the joke was aimed at, turned the tables on Schwarzenegger with real wit.
Arnold should have landed; I could have explained our multi-billion dollar state surplus & US energy security efforts. What's he been up to?
Palin tripled Alaska's savings in her 2-1/2 years as governor, and Alaska is anticipating a $2.2 billion surplus in 2010.

Schwarzenegger, on the other hand, has been in the saddle during the collapse of California's state budget from a positive $4 billion beginning balance in 2008 to a projected -$20 billion in 2011. From California's nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office:
Ooh, that hurts!
