Todd, Willow and Gov. Sarah Palin

The Alaska governor and former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family participated in a parade during Auburn, NY’s inaugural Founders Day.

Gov. Palin was presented a print of a famous painting depicting the purchase of the Alaskan territories, which she used for an opportunity to poke fun at herself.

In the painting, Russian and American dignitaries - including William H. Seward - are signing a treaty and pointing to Alaska on a globe.

“I'll betcha anything, what Seward was pointing out is, 'Lookie there. You can see Russia from here,'” Palin said, mocking a similar reference she made that generated ridicule during the presidential campaign last year.
