Palin responds to Schwarzenegger SNL gibe

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) tweeted back at California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) after he joked that he couldn't "see Russia" from his plane as it passed over Anchorage, Ala.

"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 said Friday afternoon.

Schwarzenegger had tweeted from his plane Thursday night that he was "looking everywhere but can't see Russia from here. Will keep you updated as search continues."

The line is familiar from a celebrated September 2008 "SNL" sketch in which Tina Fey debuted her performance as Palin.

During the sketch, "SNL's" Hillary Clinton, as played by comedian Amy Poehler, begins to describe her foreign policy views, prompting Fey's Palin to note her own.

"I can see Russia from my house!" she exclaims.
