LOL!

Looks like she's been taking her history lessons from here. [Wink]

Note to self: send large donation to "Palin For President" fund.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

It's the weirdest thing. Whether I'm listening or reading, I can't keep track of what Palin's actually trying to say...

Clearly something must be the matter with you. [Wink]

I mean, come on, her message is always straight and to the point, and highly cogent at that. The former governor of Alaska was just so bright and the fire in her belly so present, that holding that job was just too much of a burden -- keeping her from delivering her boundless knowledge to the entire nation. If you can't take in that message, I feel for you.

(Admittedly...s/feel/feel good/ [Razz] )

Maybe she's not really the village idiot... Maybe she just plays one on TV. It's kind of like watching Chumley on Pawn Stars. I mean, how can anyone really be that dumb?

Ms Palin's comments have started an edit-war on wikipedia, with some 'contributors' repeatedly modifying the Paul Revere article to make it more compatible with her version of events.

Um, WTF? Revere's ride is part of our national legend. The British were coming to disarm the local militia, the rebel intelligence network was better than anyone suspected, and Revere took off like a bat out of hell to give warning to the militia. At that point, none of patriots wanted the Brits to know they knew what was up - it would have totally spoiled the surprise.

ETA: At present, the wiki article is clean. But reading the edits section is borderline hilarious.

Palin's not the only one who has problems with the whole 'reality' thing.

FAUX News recently used this picture of Tina Fey in a report about Palin.

I think she is that dumb.

But...it's kinda working for her:
