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.

You know how Sarah Palin said Paul Revere warned the British? Well, he did. Now, who looks stupid? - latimes.comYou 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.

I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.

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.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

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.
