An apparent error by Governor Sarah Palin's long-time persoanl pilot saw the candidate landing in Russia's notorious Siberia region yesterday. Governor Palin was returning to her home state of Alaska following her ticket's defeat in the 2008 presidential election.
According to several reports, Palin did not realise that she had not landed in Alaska for several hours. Dmitrij Vostajnev, the arresting officer who later escorted her to a Siberian gulag recalled "She just kept calling me Joe Six-pack, and didn't even seem to notice that I was a Russian and that she was not in Alaska." The US Republican party has announced that it will not seek Governor Palin's release from Siberia until after 2012.
