I thought it was funny when he said it back then. Of course, we have some very large volcanos in Washington...

But the real question is whether or not Sarah Palin can see it from her house; if so, she's now a vulcanologist.

I love the last line that they play "Why would you want to monitor volcanoes? Um... 'cause they might kill people..."

Um yeah. Pompei anyone?
