Only a Soviet agent would purposefully twist around historic facts and put out a willful misunderstanding of President Obama's words. (4:57)

YOU KNOW, LAST WEEK'S STATE OF

THE UNION ADDRESS, PRESIDENT

OBAMA ISSUED OUR NATION A

CHALLENGE.

>> HALF A CENTURY AGO WHEN THE

SOVIETS BEAT US INTO SPACE

WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE

SATELLITE CALLED SPUTNIK,....

>> Jon: NO.

KATHY PROCTOR, YOU ARE NOT THE

FIRST SATELLITE LAUNCHED INTO

SPACE BY THE SOVIETS IN 1957.

YOU'RE JUST NOT.

>> WE UNLEASHED A WAVE OF

INNOVATION THAT CREATED NEW

INDUSTRIES AND MILLIONS OF NEW

JOBS.

THIS IS OUR GENERATION'S

SPUTNIK MOMENT.

>> Jon: TO THE MOON!

I GUESS YOU'RE SAYING IF THE

NATION'S CURRENT PREDICAMENT

COULD ACT AS A WAKE-UP CALL.

OF COURSE THAT'S NOT HOW FOX

NEWS ALASKAN BUREAU CHIEF

HEARD THAT.

>> THAT WAS ANOTHER ONE OF

THOSE W.T.F.MOMENTS WHEN HE SO

OFTEN REPEATED THE SPUTNIK

MOMENT THAT HE WOULD ASPIRE

AMERICANS TO CELEBRATE.

HE NEEDS TO REMEMBER THAT WHAT

HAPPENED BACK THEN WITH THE

FORMER COMMUNIST U.S.S.R.AND

THEIR VICTORY IN THAT RACE TO

SPACE, YEAH, THEY WON BUT THEY

ALSO INCURRED SO MUCH DEBT AT

THE TIME THAT IT RESULTED IN A

INEVITABLE COLLAPSE OF THE

SOVIET UNION.

>> Jon: I GUESS THAT'S ONE OF

THOSE W.T.F.MOMENTS, WHERE TO

START.

LET'S START.

FUTURE SPEECHWRITING NOTE, THE

F STANDS FOR (BEEP).

SECOND, WHEN OBAMA SAID

SPUTNIK MOMENT, HE WASN'T

RALLYING US TO REPEAT RUSSIA'S

SPACE RACE RECORD OF SHORT

STERM WIN AND LONG TERM LOSS.

ALSO IT WASN'T THE SPACE RACE

THAT BANKRUPTED THE SOVIETS.

IT WAS THE ARMS RACE.

WE SHOULD BE GLAD YOU DIDN'T

BLAME IT ON THE AMAZING RACE.

I'M ARGUING FACTS WITH YOU.

THAT'S NOT THE POINT.

THE POINT IS, WHO WOULD

PURPOSEFULLY TWIST AROUND

HISTORIC FACTS AND PUT OUT

SUCH A WILLFUL

MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE

PRESIDENT'S WORDS?

YOU'D ALMOST ACTUALLY HAVE TO

BE A SOVIET AGENT.

OH, MY GOD.

SARAH PALIN MAY BE A RUSSIAN

SPY.

WHAT?

NO, THAT'S CRAZY.

THAT'S CRAZY.

I KNOW BUT WHAT IF IT'S TRUE.

COME ON.

IF SARAH PALWERE A SOVIET

AGENT SHE WOULD HAVE SLIPPED

UP BY NOW AND MADE A REFERENCE

TO FAVORING A TOTALITARIAN

STATE.

>> YOU HAVE TO STAND WITH YOUR

NORTH KOREAN ALLIES.

WE'RE BOUND BY TREATY.

>> SOUTH KOREAN.

( APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: WE'VE BEEN WORRYING

ABOUT ISLAM-O-SOCIALISM THIS

WHOLE TIME.

WE FORGOT ABOUT A GOOD OLD

RUSSIAN COMMUNIST SLEEPER

AGENT.

OF COURSE THERE WOULD HAVE TO

BE OTHER TELLS.

HER ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS WOULD

ALWAYS HAVE TO BE UNNATURALLY

CAGEY.

>> WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE

FOUNDER?

>> YOU KNOW, WELL ALL OF THEM.

>> Jon: SO HARD TO PICK ONE.

WHEN YOU DIDN'T LEARN ANY OF

THEM GROWING UP IN MOSCOW.

>> WHAT OTHER SUPREME COURT

DECISIONS DO YOU DISAGREE

WITH?

WELL, LET'S SEE.

OF COURSE IN THE GREAT HISTORY

OF AMERICA THERE HAVE BEEN

RULINGS THAT THERE'S NEVER

GOING TO BE ABSOLUTE

CONSENSUS.

>> Jon: GOOD ANSWER.

OH, MY GOD.

IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

NOW.

>> YOU KNOW, ALL OF THEM.

ANY OF THEM.

>> WHAT IS IT EXACTLY THAT THE

VP DOES EVERYDAY?

>> Jon: SLOW MOTION.

SO YOU SEE, SHE'S A RUSSIAN

AGENT.

MOST COMFORTABLE IN LONG

NORTHERN WINTERS.

HER FAVORITE COLOR IS RED.

WHAT IS THIS?

WHAT IS THE MASCOT OF RUSSIA?

A BEAR.

>> MAMA GRIZZLY IS ALL ABOUT

PROTECTING THE YOUNG.

>> Jon: YOU ARE TOTALLY A

SUPER HOT RUSSIAN SPY LIKE

ANNA CHAPMAN OR NATASHA FROM

BULLWINKLE.

OF COURSE, SARAH PAL IN WERE

REALLY NATASHA FROM BULLWINKLE

SHE'D HAVE A TERRIBLE PROBLEM

WITH MOOSE.

>> THIS IS DELICIOUS, THE

MOOSE.

>> IT'S SWEETER.
