Arnie takes a Twitter swipe at Palin (update: Palin responds)

California governor is in Alaska – so where’s Russia?

GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA Arnold Schwarzenegger has mocked Republican Party colleague Sarah Palin on Twitter- joking that he couldn’t see Russia from Alaska, as the former Vice-Presidential candidate once claimed.

Schwarzenegger tweeted “Over Anchorage, AK. Looking everywhere but can’t see Russia from here. Will keep you updated as search continues.” along with a link to a picture of him looking out of an aeroplane window.

The former governor of Alaska later responded with:

Arnold should have landed; I could have explained our multi-billion dollar state surplus & US energy security efforts. What’s he been up to?

Could Palin perhaps be worried that her partymate may be trying to scupper her bid for the White House – despite being unable to run himself?
