Putin Calls Sarah Palin On Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin placed a call to her “neighbour” Vladimir Putin on The Tonight Show on Wednesday, with Jimmy Fallon playing the Balalaika-playing former KGB goon.

The former vice presidential candidate, who in 2008 predicted that Putin would invade Ukraine, was asked for advice by the Russian leader on which country he should invade next.

"Actually, Alaska is really close to Russia, maybe I should invade?" Putin said. "I wouldn't if I were you Vlad. You may be able to take down a bear, but you're no match for a mama grizzly," said Palin.
