    That is not a valid comparison. Palin's gaffes are constant and continually display her shallow grasp of almost anything she talks about.

    Her gaffes are actually pretty standard. The two instances you mention actually are those gotcha questions that get thrown out by the media. Expecting her to know exactly what is meant by the Bush doctrine, a term that has had many interpretations over the years, is just typical "gotcha" journalism. The same goes for the vague question about naming a specific Supreme court case she disagrees with other than Roe v. Wade. It doesn't make her an idiot. She probably would have been able to name other Supreme Court cases, just not necessarily ones she disagrees with.

    It is not the kind of question candidates are usually asked because the whole point of the media action was to convince everyone that this down-home country girl was an uneducated airhead who should not be allowed anywhere near the halls of power. Honestly, I believe the real reason is that the establishment strongly dislikes her as she has shown a tendency to be too independent in her political attitudes.

    Unlike the faux maverick McCain Sarah Palin has made a habit of spitting in the face of her party's establishment, as well as the general political establishment.

    How much stupider can she get? Perhaps she has negative IQ. Wait! That's an insult to people who has negative IQ!

    This one is precious, and is one for those blooper reels of the future. LOL.

    BTW, there was no such thing as the Second Amendment at that time, as the Constitution had not yet been written. And, needless to say, Revere didn't ride to warn the British. LOL.
    You know how Sarah Palin said Paul Revere warned the British? Well, he did. Now, who looks stupid?

    ou may have heard recently something about that Sarah Palin telling a reporter that Paul Revere warned the British on his famous rousing revolutionary ride.

    Now, that so many Americans have wallowed in their smug confirmation that Palin is an idiot unqualified for anything but repeating sixth-grade history, how far, wide and fast do you think the contradictory news will spread that the former governor of Alaska was indeed correct?

    That the Republican non-candidate, in fact, knew more about the actual facts of Revere's midnight ride than all those idiots unknowingly revealing their own ignorance by laughing at her faux faux pas? How secretly embarrassing this must be, to be forced to face that you're dumber than the reputed dummy.

    Danarhea, dummer then the "dummy" Sarah Palin.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    People were after her because they didn't know that Revere had told the British anything. They were wrong.

    People were after her for two reasons. She misspoke about Revere warning the British on his "Midnight Ride" and because some liberal hacks look for any reason to attack her. This whole thing REALLY isn't a big deal.

    Re: Sarah Palin: Paul Revere's Ride to Protect the Second Amendment

    The Wikipedia entry editing of Sarah Palin is not something new. I first saw it when Palin was tapped for VP by McCain in the summer of 08. I had heard through some political connections that it was going to Palin a day or sobefore it was announced and I looked her up on the site. Then the announcement came and it was as the old Thirties screen writer Robert Riskin has been given the assignment to turn her life into a Frank Capra movie designed to be both nostalgic and tear jerking. All of the sudden, there were new events listed there with touches that were absent just hours before. Somebody was actively redesigning Sarah Palin as a product for public consumption.

    So this is nothing new and seems to be standard operating procedure with Palin.

    1. that's not a gaffe (which would be relatively meaningless in and of itself) of switching out the word "colonist" for "British" - that's an actual depiction of what happened.
    2. Part of his ride was that he told a bunch of British soldiers that they were going to fail.

    when you are reduced to arguing semantics in order to make someone else look stupid, all that happens is you end up looking petty and desperate.
